  1. ROBOTIC INSPECTION OF CRUDE OIL CARRIER TANKS

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    THE INSPECTION OF VERY LARGE CRUDE CARRIERS (VLCC) FOR STRUCTURAL RELIABILITY IS AN IMPORTANT ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERN. THESE LARGE VESSELS TRANSPORT CRUDE OIL IN SUCH QUANTITIES THAT THE CONSEQUENCE OF AN OIL SPILL DUE TO A BROKEN WELD ARE VERY SERIOUS. IMPROVED TECHNIQUES ARE NEEDED TO INSPECT VLCC TANKS FOR DEFECTS SUCH AS CRACKS IN SEAMS, CORROSION AND FAILED STRUCTURAL MEMBERS. THE COST OF INSPE ...

  2. SCRAP TIRE PYROLYSIS-- PRODUCTION OF HIGHLY ENHANCED MARKETABLE PRODUCTS

    SBC: Hichem Corp.            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCH WILL BE CONDUCTED BY HICHEM CORPORATION, TO DEVELOP A NEW TECHNOLOGY FOR PYROLYSIS OF SCRAP TIRES. DISPOSAL OF USED TIRES IS A BIG PROBLEM IN THE WORLD, ESPECIALLY USA, SINCE MORE THAN 2.5 MILLION TIRES ARE DISCARDED EACH YEAR. MOST OF THESE TIRES ARE DISPOSED IN LANDFILLS. PYROLYSIS OF SCRAP TIRES HELPS TO RECOVER AND REUSE MOST OF THE VALUABLE CHEMICAL AVAILABLE IN TIRES. PYROLYSIS OF S ...

  4. DEVELOPMENT OF REGENERABLE HOT-GAS DESULFURIZATION SORBENTS WITH IMPROVED POLLUTANT CAPTURE PROPERTIES

    SBC: Remsa Inc            Topic: N/A

    CURRENTLY, COAL AND RESIDUAL OIL-FIRED, STEAM-ELECTRIC STATIONS ARE THE LARGEST SOURCE OF ATMOSPHERIC SULFUR DIOXIDE POLLUTANTS. THE FRACTIONAL CONTRIBUTION OF SULFUR OXIDE EMISSIONS FROM COAL IS GREATER THAN ITS FRACTION FROM OIL USED IN POWER GENERATION SINCE THE SULFUR CONTENT OF MOST OF THE COAL IS HIGHER. AMONG THE VARIOUS ALTERNATIVES THAT MAY BE USED TO REDUCE THE SULFUR OXIDE POLLUTION CAU ...

  5. ABDUCTIVE/EXPERT SYSTEM CONTROLLER

    SBC: ABTECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS EFFORT IS TO DEMONSTRATE A PROTOTYPE CONTROLLER FOR A HOWITZER USING A HYBRID NETWORK AND PRODUCTION RULE SYSTEM. THE RESULTING ADAPTIVE CONTROLLER WILL DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING A REVOLUTIONARY CONTROLLER CAPABLE OF ADAPTING IN A DYNAMIC ENVIRONMENT, MONITORING AND DIAGNOSING BEHAVIOR, AND PREDICTING FUTURE FAULTS AND MAINTENANCE REQUIREMENTS. ABTECH HAS DEVE ...

  6. An Ontogenic Polynomial Neural Network/Expert System Modeling Evnironment for Chaotic Avionics Systems Behavior Prediction

    SBC: ABTECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Ontogenic neural networks, those which automatically discover their topology during synthesis, offer substantial advantages over traditional machine learning techniques. They also have the potential to offer many benefits in several areas of avionics research. Among potential application areas is the ability to predict or forecast the behavior of a seemingly random or chaotic system. This proposal ...

  7. Voice Controlled Office Assistant Using Abductive Networks ($19,968 Phase I option proposed)

    SBC: ABTECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    AbTech will survey the hardware and software available to determine what capabilities should be included in an automated office assistant software suite. A language parsing and encoding system in ANN (a leading semantic understanding software package) will be used to parse and encode ASCII output resulting from a voice recognition system such as DragonDictate. The ASCII output from the voice recog ...
