  1. Development of a Self-Adaptive Air Turbine for Wave Energy Conversion using an Oscillaating Water Column (OWC) Air System

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: 19a

    The oscillating water column (OWC) is a candidate technology for the economical recovery of the projected 17.5 x 1012 kW-hr energy that is available from the world¿s oceans. While the relative dynamics between the OWC system and the incident water waves are mathematically understood, computational solutions have not been used to ¿tune¿ the OWC turbine-generator sub-systems to operate where the ...

  2. Development of High-Efficiency Power Amplifiers for 704 MHz

    SBC: Green Mountain Radio Research Company            Topic: 46b

    Accelerators used for nuclear-physics research require megawatts of radio-frequency energy. These accelerators currently employ vacuum-tube power amplifiers or conventional solid-state amplifiers that are inefficient and therefore consume a great deal of prime power. This project will review available transistors, analyze high-efficiency power-amplifier techniques, and experimentally evaluate ca ...

  5. Geophysical Monitoring of Multiple Phase Saturation of Rocks: Applications to CO2 Sequestration

    SBC: New England Research, Inc.            Topic: 25c

    The world is increasingly concerned about global warming from the greenhouse effect, and the voluminous CO2 emissions from human activities are a significant contributor to this problem. Carbon sequestration is the concept of isolating and removing CO2 gases from large point sources and then holding them in secure storage. To be viable, any CO2 sequestration option must be safe, predictable, rel ...

  6. Advanced Detection of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs)

    SBC: QuantaSpec Inc.            Topic: AF06113

    Standoff detectors are required to detect IEDs. These detectectors are needed to save the lives of American soldiers. QuantaSpec has developed patent pending methods for long-range, sensitive, and selective standoff detection of explosives. These methods have already demonstrated sensitive remote detection of explosive vapors under previous efforts. QuantaSpec's multidisciplinary team will dem ...

  7. High Energy Density, Low-Cost, High Temperature Capacitors for Hybrid Vehicles

    SBC: Sbe Inc            Topic: 05

    Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs) and plug-in Hybrid Vehicles (PHEVs) require advanced technology capacitors, which must have low cost and the ability to operate at 150oC. However, current 150oC film capacitor solutions are expensive and have lower energy density compared to materials that operate at lower temperatures. Polypropylene Film Capacitors represent a potentially cost effective solution ...

  8. A New High-Resolution Method for the Characterization of Heterogeneous Subsurface Environments: Providing Flow and Transport Parameters via the Integration of MultiScale HydroGeophysical Data

    SBC: New England Research, Inc.            Topic: 49

    Historically, remediation efforts at DOE contaminated sites have relied on numerical models to integrate laboratory and field characterization data, predict the fate and transport behavior of contaminant plumes, design remediation protocols to mitigate contaminant migration, and analyze data from field remediation results. Of particular concern is the effect of subsurface heterogeneities and thei ...
