  1. 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 ...

  2. IMPROVED METHOD FOR HEATING CATALYTIC CONVERTERS OF VEHICLES TO ATTAIN ULTRA-LOW EMISSIONS

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE THREE-WAY CATALYTIC CONVERTER IS THE MOST IMPORTANT DEVICE MAKING TODAY'S AUTOMOBILES COMPLY WITH EXISTING EMISSION LAWS. THE FIRST TWO OR THREE MILES IN A TYPICAL 22-MINUTE, 12-MILE COMUTE IN TODAY'S VEHICLES RESULT IN THE EMISSION OF HALF OF THE TOTAL NON-METHANE HYDROCARBONS, WHICH RESULT IN THE PRODUCTION OF URBAN SMOG, AS WELL AS HALF OF THE TOXIC CO EMISSIONS. THIS OCCURS BECAUSE THE CAT ...

  3. Advanced Aluminum Alloy: Extruded Thin Wall Structural Concepts

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    The primary objective of this proposed work is to develop a method of producing integrally stiffened, complex shaped monolithic structural components in high strength aluminum alloys at a lower cost and lighter weight than equivalent conventional built-up assemblies. In Phase I the feasibility of attaining this objective will be demonstrated by conducting a series of subscale experiments based upo ...

  4. Laser-Activated X-Ray Source

    SBC: BIO-IMAGING RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose a method of generating x-rays that will combine high instantaneous output of rotating-anode x-ray tubes with continuous cooling rates as great or greater than fixed-anode tubes. This combination can be achieved in a mechanically simple way, and will reduce spot wobble without vacuum seals, vacuum bearings, deflecting field, or conventional cathodes, by either thermionic or photoemission ...

  6. A LARGE TARGET RCS SIMULATOR WITH ANTENNA SCATTERING AND HIGH-ORDER EDGE DIFFRACTION CAPABILITY

    SBC: DEMACO, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a general purpose computer code for calculating the scattering from antennas on an aircraft, which is described by a CAD file. The scattering contribution will include both the passive structure mode and active irradiation mode, calculcated by a hybrid of a high-frequency ray technique and a rigorous finite element technique. The proposed code will be made compatible with the ...

  7. The Development of Auditory ICONS for Representation of Virtual Objects in 3-D Space

    SBC: Dynastat, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The ability of subjects to localize and identify each member of a set of acoustic signals will be measured. The acoustic signals will be presented in random order at several locations in auditory space, also chosen randomly. The acoustic signals are constructed to maximize the cues they present for localization and identification in that they contain a wide range of frequencies and timing informat ...

  8. Electromagnetic Radiation Effects and Measurement Devices

    SBC: Forward Vision, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Electromagnetic fields from microwaves, radar, power lines, appliances, etc. are everywhere - in the workplace, the home, even on the roads we drive. Better health and safety standards are required for protection of humans and even vital animals like livestock or pets. Computer modeling can do much to enlighten us on how this radiation affects us: where it concentrates in the body, how it interact ...

  9. Advanced GPS Receiver Technology for Autonomous Space Navigation

    SBC: J. Chaffee & Associates            Topic: N/A

    JChaffee & Associates proposes the development of advanced methods for using GPS with the goal of automating space operations. This includes navigation, attitude determination, and relative positioning from launch through orbital operations and de-orbit. To accompolish this task, a new generation of computational methods for GPS will be applied in a new generation of GPS receivers. The computation ...

  10. Re-engineering Legacy Systems to Object Oriented Technology

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The object-oriented (OO) paradigm has demonstrated that it can produce software systems that are more reliable, have greater re-use capabilities, and are easier to understand, maintain, and modify. As the technology matures, the desire to convert large-scale, non-OO systems into OO systems increases. The need for an intelligent assistant to support such undertakings has surfaced. Such an assistant ...
