  1. Fidelity Enhancement of Nuclear Power Plant Simulators Utilizing High Fidelity Simulation Predictions

    SBC: WESTERN SERVICES CORPORATION            Topic: 30c

    Accurate simulation of nuclear power plant behavior is necessary for both engineering and training applications. An engineering grade simulator, used for design, safety analysis and operations, is characterized by high fidelity, computational power, lack of real-time capability, and user non-interactive environment. By contrast, a training grade simulator, used for operator training and education, ...

  3. Second Generation Glass Fiber Composites Fabricated from Retired Wind Turbine Blades

    SBC: Carbon Rivers LLC            Topic: 15c

    Glass fiber is the most common reinforcement material for all polymer composites (a $43.93 billion dollar market in 2017), including all wind turbine blades of which it’s estimated there will be over 4.8 million tonnes of by 2050. However, there exists no economical method of handling these composites once they reach end of life, meaning they are all currently destined for the landfill. For wind ...

  9. Development of breeding strategies for Nitzschia sp.

    SBC: GLOBAL ALGAE INNOVATIONS, INC.            Topic: 08c

    Renewable algae fuels are the source of energy for the future. It was demonstrated that algae fuels can be produced and they were successfully used in demonstration airplane flights and cars. The cost of algae oil is still high and cannot compete with fossil fuels. High algae growth and ability to accumulate oil fast are the key factors that will make algae based biofuels affordable. Diatoms are t ...

  10. Demonstration of the technological capability for production of neutron-focusing nickel mirrors

    SBC: ELECTROFORMED NICKEL, INC.            Topic: 15a

    Neutron scattering is one of the most useful methods of studying the structure and dynamics of matter. These methods require large installations at national laboratories, such as Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and other facilities constructed or planned in the US and around the world. These facilities serve a large and diverse community ...
