  1. SAFE AND ECONOMICAL CHLORINE DIOXIDE GENERATION

    SBC: Eltech Research Corpon            Topic: N/A

    SAFE, COST EFFECTIVE ALTERNATIVES TO CHLORINE TREATMENT OF DRINKING WATER FOR DISTRIBUTION AND DISINFECTION HAVE BEEN SOUGHT FOR SOME TIME. CHLORINE DIOXIDE IS A VIABLE ALTERNATIVE TO CHLORINE FOR THE TREATMENT OF EVEN POOR QUALITY WATER SUPPLIES AND THE REDUCTION OF POTENTIAL CANCER CAUSING CHLORINATED ORGANICS. ITS WIDESPREAD USE HAS BEEN INHIBITED BY THE COSTS AND/OR COMPLEXITY OF ITS PRODUCTIO ...

  2. DOUBLE HEAT EXCHANGES SYSTEM FOR MINIMIZING ENERGY AND POLLUTION CONTROL COSTS IN INDUSTRIAL PROCESSES

    SBC: Energy Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THERE ARE NUMEROUS INDUSTRIAL PROCESSES REQUIRING THAT MATERIAL BE HEATED AND THEN SUBSEQUENTLY COOLED. IF MOST OF THIS HEAT IS RECOVERED AND RECYCLED TO THE OVEN, THE NET POWER INPUT TO THE OVEN COULD BE SUBSTANTIALLY REDUCED. THE KEY TO ACCOMPLISHING THIS IS AN INCREASE OF THE HEAT TRANSFER COEFFICIENT BETWEEN GAS AND MATERIAL SO THAT THE HEAT EXCHANGERS ARE RESASONABLY COMPACT. SIMPLE EXPERIMEN ...

  3. FEASIBILITY OF AN INTEGRATED CONTINUOUS PROCESS USING AUTO- MATIC INSTRUMENTATION AND STATAISTICAL ANALYSES TO REDUCE COSTS AND TO INCREASE THE EFFICIENCY OF PEAK DETECTION AND POLLUTION CONTROL IN UNDERGROUND STORAGE TANKS

    SBC: Production Monitoring &            Topic: N/A

    OVER THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS, THE EPA HAS DEVOTED MAJOR EF- FORTS TO IDENTIFY AND DOCUMENT THE MAGNITUDE OF THE RISKS OFENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION DUE TO LEAKING UDERGROUND STORAGE TANKS (UST). IN APRIL 1987, THE EPA PUBLISHED THE PROPOSED REGULATIONS FOR THE OWNERS AND OPERATORS OF UST, WHICH ARE EXPECTED TO BE FINALIZEDD IN EARLY 1988. THESE REGULATIONS INCLUDE REQUIREMENTS FOR TANK TIGHTNESS TESTS, ...

  4. THEORETICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL CHARACTERIZATION OF FIBER-MATRIX INTERFACE IN SIC REINFORCED GLASS CERAMICS

    SBC: ADTECH SYSTEMS RESEARCH INC            Topic: N/A

    ALTHOUGH THE USE OF CERAMIC COMPOSITES IN AEROSPACE SYSTEMS IS MONOTONICALLY INCREASING, THERE ARE NOT MANY ANALYTICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL STUDIES REVEALING THE UNIQUE CHARACTERISTICS THESE MATERIALS CAN PROVIDE. IT IS BELIEVED THAT THESE MATERIALS HAVE GREAT PROMISE FOR HIGH TEMPERATURE STRUCTURAL APPLICATIONS INCLUDING HOT TURBINE ENGINE COMPONENTS. WHILE FEW FIBER REINFORCED CERAMIC SYSTEMS ARE CO ...

  5. DESIGN SYNTHETIC REASONING: A COMPUTATIONAL MODEL FOR MECHANICAL SYSTEM DESIGN SYNTHESIS

    SBC: Alfa Engineering Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE THRUST OF THE PROPOSED RESEARCH IS TO MATHEMATICALLY MODEL THE FUNCTION, BEHAVIOR AND STRUCTURE ASPECTS OF MECHANICAL DESIGNS AND DEVELOP COMPUTATIONAL MECHANISMS FOR THE DESIGN SYNTHESIS OF MECHANICAL SYSTEMS. THE APPROACH TO BE USED IS A COMBINATION OF THE TRANSFORMATIONAL APPROACH (USED PREVIOUSLY IN SOFTWARE ENGINEERING AND VLSI DESIGN) AND THE PROBLEM SOLVING/PLANNING APPROACH OF ARTIFICI ...

  7. TIME RESOLVED TARGET AND PLUME OPTICAL PROPERTIES MEASUREMENTS DURING RP LASER INTERACTIONS

    SBC: Antropix Corpon            Topic: N/A

    ANTROPIX CORPORATION PROPOSES TO OBTAIN TIME RESOLVED TARGET AND PLUME OPTICAL PROPERTIES MEASUREMENTS DURING RP LASER INTERACTIONS. TARGET ABSORBANCES (BOTH SURFACE AND IN-DEPTH) AND REFLECTANCES WILL BE DETERMINED WITH INTEGRATING SPHERE DEVICES PLUS PROBE BEAMS AND FAST DETECTORS. PLUME OPTICAL PROPERTIES DUE TO ATOMIC, MOLECULAR, PARTICULATE, AND PLASMA SPECIES WILL BE DETERMINED USING LASER P ...

  8. PROCESSED VAPOR GROWN GRAPHITE FIBERS FOR ELECTROMAGNETIC RAILGUNS

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: N/A

    REQUIREMENTS FOR RAILGUN ARMATURES DICTATE MATERIALS PROPERTIES VALUESWHICH ARE DIFFICULT TO OBTAIN FROM CONVENTIONAL MATERIALS. THE NEED EXISTS FOR A MATERIAL WHICH HAS LOW DENSITY, HIGH MELTING POINT, HIGH THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY, LOW COEFFICIENT OF THERMAL EXPANSION, HIGH ELECTRICAL CONDUCTIVITY, HIGH VALUES FOR STRENGTH, AND GOOD CHARACTERISTICS OF LUBRICITY. GRAPHITE FIBER GROWN FROM PYROLYSIS O ...

  9. HIGH THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY COMPOSITES FOR THERMAL ENERGY MANAGEMENT

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: N/A

    THE ECONOMICS OF LAUNCH COST, COUPLED WITH POWER REQUIREMENTS FOR SPACE BASED WEAPONS SYSTEMS, MANDATE OPTIMIZATION OF THE RATIO OF POWER TO MASS IN SPACE POWER SYSTEMS. A LOW DENSITY, HIGH TEMPERATURE, RADIATION-COMPATIBLE MATERIAL WITH HIGH THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY USED FOR CONSTRUCTION OF THERMAL MANAGEMENT DEVICES WOULD OFFER A SUBSTANTIAL ENHANCEMENT TO THE POWER/MASS RATIO, AND TO THE COST OF DE ...

  10. OXIDATION PROTECTION OF HIGH TEMPERATURE CARBON-CARBON COMPOSITES

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT APPLICATIONS FOR RE-ENTRY VEHICLES AND HIGH TEMPERATURE AIR BREATHING PROPULSION SYSTEMS, AND DESIGNS FOR ADVANCED AIRCRAFT AND SPACECRAFT SUCH AS THE NATIONAL AEROSPACE PLANE HAVE SIMULATED INTEREST IN A CLASS OF MATERIALS WHICH CAN OPERATE IN AN OXYGEN ATMOSPHERE AT TEMPERATURES RANGING BETWEEN 500 C AND 2200 C. CARBONCARBON COMPOSITES ARE ATTRACTIVE FOR THIS TEMPERATURE RANGE FROM THE D ...
