  1. A Multimodal Acoustic Tool for Inline Pipe Inspection

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 180PH1

    A Multimodal Acoustic Tool for Inline Pipe Inspection 3/19/2018 The US energy transport pipeline system is a longstanding distribution network with most of its still standing pipes being installed between the 1950s–1970s. Due to degradation mechanisms, such as embrittlement, capable of causing a two-fold reduction in fracture toughness, pipe rupture is a major risk. Current nondestructive ins ...

  2. Rapid Assessment of Air Void System in Fresh Concrete

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 171FH2

    Proposal title: Rapid Assessment of Air Void System in Fresh Concrete Water expansion during freeze-thaw cycles can cause deterioration in concrete, leading to scaling, cracking, and crumbling over a period of years. Resistance to this damage is achieved with a system of voids formed by adding surfactants to the fresh concrete to stabilize air bubbles naturally entrained during mixing. The volume ...

  3. Broken Rail Detection from Flashing Rear End Device

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 171FR2

    Proposal title: Broken Rail Detection from Flashing Rear End Device Broken rails are a common cause of mainline derailments and a particular concern given the increasing use of our rail system for passenger traffic and petroleum products. The progressive nature of the defects provides an opportunity for early detection of cracks before they become significant enough to cause a derailment. Unfortu ...

  4. Semi-Autonomous Follow-me Biomass Baler

    SBC: AUTONOMOUS TRACTOR CORPORATION            Topic: 813

    This project addresses USDA-NIFA's research priorities regarding crop management systems that promote energy conservation and efficiency, including the use of alternative and renewable energy resources. This proposal outlines a plan to prove the research concept of a Single-pass Autonomous Follow-me (SAF) Baler. The SAF baler is intended to bale the available supply of corn stover during corn ...

  5. Spirulina-based oral vaccine for infectious hematopoietic necrosis virus (IHNV) in farmed salmonid fish

    SBC: Lumen Bioscience, Inc.            Topic: 87

    Non-Technical SummaryAquaculture is the fastest growing segment of the global food industry and plays an increasingly important role in feeding the world's population. Intensive aquaculture using increased stocking densities, compressed rearing cycles, monocultures, antibiotics, and other strategies aimed at efficient protein production has been complicated by outbreaks of known and newly emer ...

  6. Tick Surveillance and Mass Capture Trap

    SBC: Springstar, Inc.            Topic: 83

    To this date there are no commercially available tick traps. A simple tick trap will provide a method for detection of ticks that users can use to make informed decisions about timing appropriate pesticide applications, thus minimizing total pesticide use. Additionally, the traps can be deployed to mass-capture ticks, so that the devices can provide a pesticide-free intervention for controlling ti ...

  7. Mill Development Model Development and Testing

    SBC: Innovative Natural Resource Solutions, LLC            Topic: 86

    INRS and MDP will collaborate to build an analytical model that demonstrates the probability of success - and opportunities for enhancement - for the redevelopment of idled industrial assets. This model will be developed and refined using the former pulp and paper mill in Old Town, ME., and data supplied by multiple redevelopment efforts elsewhere in the State of Maine. Based upon learnings and ex ...

  8. Scale up and commercialization of high performance biocomposite structures

    SBC: Grow Plastics LLC            Topic: 88

    Grow Plastics has a technology that has been demonstrated to generate sandwich core structures in thermoplastic products. This efficient structure allows the generation of plastic products which are equivalent in strength to solid products, yet use 1/3 of the material. This substantial material reduction allows the production of parts that are lower environmental impact (due to source reduction) a ...

  10. RECAL:A New Tool for Disease Detection and Biomolecular Imaging

    SBC: Photon Biosciences LLC            Topic: 400

    Project SummaryAbstract We envision developing a new ultrasensitive detection platform that combines a recombinant protein with a unique imaging media that results in a luminescent protein that is non bleaching and non blinkingThe excitation and emission wavelengths of this protein can be tuned with the choice of imaging media and span much of the visible and near infrared regions of the electroma ...
