  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 ...

  6. Gamma Ray Lens Feasibility Study

    SBC: Acctek Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Ganuna (7)-ray lenses are an advanced technology currently under development at Argonne National Laboratory for arms control application. The purpose of this proposal is to address whether y-ray lens technology can enable an improved system for imaging radioactive isotopes in patients. In nuclear medicine, it is often desirable to generate a y-ray image that shows the exact areas where an emitting ...

  10. Automated Generation of Electromagnetic Computer Aided Design (CAD) Package Computational Meshes

    SBC: Autometric Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Although great strides have been taken to generate and render problem geometries using computer automated design packages, as well as advancements in the the development of computational electromagnetics codes to solve Maxwell's equations, the link between the two is still very weak. Practical geometries have complex geometric features, abrupt changes in electromagnetic constitutive parameters, an ...
