  1. OF LONGITUDINAL STRESSES IN RAILS UNDER OPERATING CONDITIONS

    SBC: Eggers And Associates            Topic: N/A

    A NOVEL TECHNIQUE (PATENT IN APPLICATION) IS PROPOSED FOR THE NON-DESTRUCTIVE MEASUREMENT OF LONGITUDINAL STRESSES IN RAIL WHICH MAKE USE OF TWO PHENOMENA KNOWN AS (1) MAGNE TOSTRICTION AND (2) SKIN EFFECT. MAGNETOSTRICTION IS EXHIBITED BY FERROMAGNETIC MATERIALS SUCH AS RAIL STEELS AND GIVES RISE TO A CHANGE IN THE MAGNETIC PERMEABILITY WITH APPLIED STRESS. THE SKIN EFFECT DETERMINES THE DISTRIBU ...

  3. Determination of the Onset of Widespread Fatigue Damage

    SBC: Qual-x, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    QUAL-X proposes to nondestructively inspect the extensive surface areas of aging commercial airliners for corrosion and fatigue damage. QUAL-X will characterize the above surfaces both at local and global areas of interest using chemical gas penetrants and advanced gas sensor techniques; both of which were developed as an extension of the company's unique and singular experience with the ket gas ...

  4. A RELIABLE LOCOMITIVE CAB ALERTER

    SBC: Technology International Incorporated of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    SEVERAL CONCEPTS ARE PROPOSED FOR LOCOMOTIVE CAB ALERTERS THAT CAN BE RETROFITTED TO ALERTER SYSTEMS ALREADY IN SERVICE. THE CONCEPTS INCLUDE A TOUCH SCREEN, WHICH REQUIRES TOUCHING A TARGET TO RESET THE TIMER OR TO RESPOND TO THE ALERTER LIGHT PROMPT. THE INITIAL LOCATION OF THE TARGET ON THE SCREEN IS AUTOMATICALLY SELECTED AT RANDOM. ANOTHER CONCEPT IS THE USE OF A TELEPHONE KEYPAD WITH LCD, WH ...

  5. SMALL SIZED, CONTINUOUS MONITORING PIEZOELECTRIC CRYSTAL OR SAW DETECTORS WILL BE DEVELOPED FOR DETECTION OF COF OF CONTRABAND DRUGS USING IMMOBILIZED ANTIBODIES.

    SBC: Universal Sensors, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SMALL SIZED, CONTINUOUS MONITORING PIEZOELECTRIC CRYSTAL OR SAW DETECTORS WILL BE DEVELOPED FOR DETECTION OF COF OF CONTRABAND DRUGS USING IMMOBILIZED ANTIBODIES. MONITORS WILL BE DESIGNED THAT ARE (1) SPECIFIC FOR ONE DRUG AND (2) GENERAL DETECTORS FOR ANY OF SEVERAL DRUGS THAT MIGHT BE PRESENT. MONITORS WILL BE DESIGNED THAT ARE SIMPLE TO USE, OF LOW COST, AND ARE BASED ON ANALYTICAL METHODOLOGY ...

  6. SVD-Based Detection of Internal Waves in SAR Irmgery

    SBC: Adaptive Software, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Although satellite-based SAR is sensitive enough to pick up the modulation effects of internal waves, the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of th-Ls observable is believed to be to() low to afford detection of enemy sukuiarines . Adaptive Software prolses that with a new interpretation of singular value decomposition, the SNR can be improved enough to allow automated detection of sukfmrine paths. While ...

  8. Fast Room Temperature Cure Adhesive for Fiber Optic Connector

    SBC: Advanced Material Systems            Topic: N/A

    Standard U.S. Navy fiber optic assemblies require that the fiber be bonded to the connector using an adhesive that is labor intensive and heat controlled (MIL-A-24792). Advanced Material Systems (AMS) proposes a study that could solve this problem through the development of an adhesive system that would cure at room temperature in less that 3 minutes and yet meet all of the in-service req ...

  9. VIDEO IMAGES

    SBC: Automation Research Of Cincinn            Topic: N/A

    THE FEASIBILITY STUDY INCLUDES R&D TASKS TO INVESTIGATE THE FOLLOWING: A) WORKPIECE CLASSIFICATION; B) WORKPIECE LOCATION AND ORIENTATION, AND C) WORKPIECE SURFACE CONDITION. THESE TASKS INCLUDES PREPROCESSING OF REAL-TIME VIDEO DATA FROM A SPECIAL 3-D VISION SYSTEM, AND APPLICATIONS OF ADVANCED COMPUTER VISION METHODOLOGIES TO CARRY OUT THE INVESTIGATION OF A), B), AND C).

  10. Improved Thermal Bond Material for Electronic Components

    SBC: Cast Metal Composites            Topic: N/A

    The objective of the proposed program is to design, using graphite fiber fabric, high thermal conductivity thermal doubler/electronic component bonds that can be debonded easily at low temperatures for repair. The design and selection of materials for these bonds will be guided by computer modeling and analysis work. The thermal performance of polymer bond materials reinforced with high thermal c ...
