  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. 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 ...

  5. SIC REINFORCED THERMAL BARRIER COATING

    SBC: APS Materials, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    PRESENT STATE OF THE ART THERMAL BARRIER COATINGS DEPOSITED BY ARC-PLASMA SPRAYING FAIL JUST ABOVE THE CERAMIC/BONDCOAT INTERFACE DUE TO ACCUMULATED STRESSES WHICH RISE DURING THERMAL CYCLING. THE PROPOSED PROJECT EXPLORES THE INCLUSION OF STRENGTHENING SIC WHISKERS OR PLATELETS TO COMBAT THESE STRESSES. WHEREAS PREVIOUS ATTEMPTS HAVE CAUSED DISASSOCIATION OF THE SIC, WE PROPOSE A STAGGERED INJECT ...

  6. QUANTITATIVE LUBRICATING OIL DEBRIS MONITORING AND ANALYSIS

    SBC: Asoma Instruments            Topic: N/A

    ASOMA INSTRUMENTS, INC. IS PROPOSING TO DEVELOP A LOW COST, PORTABLE, ENERGY DISPERSIVE, RADIOISOTOPE ACTIVATED X-RAY FLUORESCENCE ANALYZER,WHICH CAN BE USED AT OR NEAR THE SAMPLING POINT FOR LUBRICATING OILS. IF SUCCESSFULLY DEVELOPED, THIS INSTRUMENT COULD BE OPERATED BY NON-TECHNICAL PERSONNEL, TO PROVIDE ANALYSES WITHIN ONE TO FIVE MINUTES FOR ACCUMULATIONS IN LUBRICATING OILS OF WEAR METAL DE ...

  7. CHARACTERIZATION OF OWNSHIP DOPPLER AND TRANSMISSION CHANNEL PARAMETERS BY MEANS OF CLUTTER MEASUREMENTS

    SBC: Breed & Harvel Assocs            Topic: N/A

    IT HAS BEEN FOUND, FROM EXPERIENCE GAINED ON THE CRITICAL SEA TEST (CST) AND THE LOW FREQUENCY ACOUSTICS (LFA) PROGRAMS, THAT THE ACOUSTIC ENVIRONMENT FOR LONG RANGE ACTIVE SYSTEMS IS UNIQUE. A PRINCIPAL CONCERN IS CLUTTER DISCRIMINATION, AND MANAGEMENT, AND ONE OF THE PRINCIPAL CLUTTER DISCRIMINANTS IS DOPPLER. IF ONE CAN ELIMINATE OWNSHIP'S MOTION, CLUTTER CAN BE CHARACTERIZED AS HAVING ZERO VEL ...

  8. DATA COMPRESSION FOR ACOUSTIC SURVEILLANCE DATA

    SBC: Breed & Harvel Assocs            Topic: N/A

    THE TREND IN ACOUSTIC SURVEILLANCE DEVELOPMENT IN THE LAST DECADE HAS BEEN FOR A GREATER NUMBER OF ACOUSTIC ARRAYS, EACH WITH A GREATER NUMBER OF SENSORS, AND AS A CONSEQUENCE A GREATER NUMBER OF BEAMS TO BE PROCESSED, TRANSMITTED, AND STORED. IN THE FUTURE THE QUANTITY WILL CONTINUE TO INCREASE. AT THE SAME TIME THERE IS A REQUIREMENT TO IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF THE DATA WHICH IS STORED AND TRANSMI ...

  9. EXPERT SYSTEM FOR CIRCUIT BOARD ASSEMBLY

    SBC: Cim Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED EXPERT SYSTEM FOR CIRCUIT BOARD ASSEMBLY IS AN ENGINEERING SOFTWARE TOOL WHOSE GOAL IS TO HELP AN ORGANIZATION TO OPTIMIZE THE PLACEMENT AND INSERTION SEQUENCE OF ELECTRONIC PART COMPONENTS FOR A CIRCUIT CARD ASSEMBLY USING KITTED PARTS. IT ASSUMES THAT THE ASSEMBLY PROCESS IS NOT A SERIAL DECISION METHOD, RATHER, IT IS A PROCESS WITH PARALLEL INTERACTION FROM ORIGINATION OF A CONCEPT ...

  10. LIGHT WEIGHT TURBINE BLADE ATTACHMENT

    SBC: Cvd            Topic: N/A

    PROBLEMS - INCREASE THRUST-TO-WEIGHT REQUIREMENT IS ONE OF THE MAIN CONCERNS OF THE DOD (DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE) AND THE AIRCRAFT INDUSTRY. THE THRUST-TO-WEIGHT RATIO COULD BE IMPROVED BY REDUCING THE WEIGHT OF THE ENGINE. ONE AREA IN THE ENGINE COULD BE REDUCED IS IN THE TURBINE BLADE/DISK ATTACHMENT. THE CURRENT DESIGN USED THE HIGH STRESS DOVETAIL OR FIR TREE ATTACHMENT. OBJECTIVES - THE OBJECTI ...
