  1. High Fidelity Computational Models for Aggregated Tissue Interaction in Surgical Simulations

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DHP16A001

    Surgical simulations aiming to support surgeon practices and medical education have attracted enormous research effort over the last two decades. However, the physical reality, especially on simulating aggregated tissue interaction, is still unsatisfactory. In this proposed work, an open source surgery simulation framework, SoFMIS, will be utilized and enhanced with tissue interaction models to a ...

  2. Bio-mathematical Models of Aggregated Tissues & Organ Properties

    SBC: Corvid Innovation LLC            Topic: DHP16A001

    Realistic surgical simulation requires a combination of representative tissue geometry, accurate tissue material properties and lifelike tool-tissue interaction forces. Recent advances in computational power and imaging modalities have provided the capability to represent the anatomical details required for surgical training; however, the mathematical models which govern the underlying tissue pro ...

  3. Bio-Mathematical Models of Aggregated Tissues & Organ Properties

    SBC: BioMojo, LLC            Topic: DHP16A001

    BioMojo LLC and the Departments of Mathematics and Biomedical Engineering at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, will develop a preliminary bio mathematical model framework to represent how human tissues interact and behave at their boundaries. Tissue interaction properties (e.g. tensile, shear, friction, and so forth) of connective, epithelial, muscular, and nervous tissue including su ...

  4. Development of Low Cost Magnetocaloric Nanomaterials for Sub 80oK Refrigeration Applications

    SBC: GENERAL ENGINEERING & RESEARCH, L.L.C.            Topic: 12

    Replacement of petroleum based vehicles with fuel cell electric vehicles operating on hydrogen produced from domestically available resources would dramatically decrease emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants as well as reduce dependence on oil from politically volatile regions of the world. One major inhibitor to a hydrogen society is the lack of infrastructure, which requires hydroge ...

  5. Mechanisms of Wave Liquefaction Conversion of Coal to Liquids for Reactor Refinement and Optimization

    SBC: H Quest Vanguard Inc            Topic: 18

    With 27% of the world’s coal reserves located in the United States, development of a clean, efficient, and economically viable pathway to coal utilization is of strategic importance. Development of advanced coal-to-liquids technologies provides this direct pathway, while improving energy security, reducing coal environmental footprint, and promoting economic development directly in the communiti ...

  6. Organic-Inorganic Hybrid Nanocomposite as Radiation-resistant Electrical Insulator

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: 20

    The Department of Energy needs improved radiation resistant electrical insulation materials for the superconducting magnet coils in fusion reactors. To achieve safe, reliable, economic and environmentally benign fusion energy system, DOE is seeking organic/inorganic insulation-capable materials that are wrappable. These materials under irradiation will enable magnet coils to: (1) operate reliably ...

  7. Optical fiber integration into Bi2Sr2CaCu2Ox/Ag/AgX and (RE)Ba2Cu3Ox superconducting coils

    SBC: Lupine Materials and Technology, Inc.            Topic: 27

    The particle accelerators and detectors needed for future high energy physics devices require magnetic fields higher than those that can be produced by the low-temperature superconductor (LTS) technologies used in present-day superconducting magnets (SCMs). High temperature superconductor (HTS) materials, however, have the potential to generate very high magnetic fields, offering a technological p ...

  8. High Gradient Accelerating Structure for Low Energy Protons

    SBC: RadiaBeam Systems, LLC            Topic: 25

    Currently, the most promising types of radiotherapy is proton or carbon therapy, as they have demonstrated significant improvements in clinical efficiency and reduced toxicity profiles. Unfortunately, the high cost of treatments using both proton and carbon beams is the limiting factor preventing hadron therapy from becoming the standard of care for a wider range of cancers. Designing a linear acc ...

  9. High power, magnet-free, circulator using angular-momentum biasing of a resonant ring

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: 25

    There is a continuing need for high power circulators to protect the next generation of high power RF sources from waveguide reflections that can destroy the device. Currently, the power level of circulators is limited by the materials, specifically ferrites that provide the required non-reciprocal operation. New approaches are required that use materials capable of very high power operation. Stat ...

  10. Nanoscale Metal Oxide Coatings for Corrosion Protection of Superalloy Materials

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: 14d

    The Brayton cycle for power generation offers significant advantages over the Rankin cycle typically used. Unfortunately, the Brayton cycle uses very high pressure and high temperature, supercritical CO2 (sCO2) as the heat transfer fluid. New materials that can handle the harsh environment of sCO2 are required to enable power generation and prevent issues with corrosion and erosion or efficiency d ...
