  1. Automated Identification and Sorting of Rare Earth Elements in an E-waste Recycling Stream

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: B

    Electronic waste (e-waste) is one of the most rapidly growing waste problems worldwide. Improper handling of e-waste results in vast amounts of toxic waste being sent to landfill and leaching into the water supply. Due to these concerns, e-waste recycling is a rapidly growing industry. Unfortunately, most current e-waste recycling processes rely on either manual hand sorting or differential densit ...

  9. Improved Design Package for Fracture Mechanics Analysis

    SBC: VEXTEC CORPORATION            Topic: AF141075

    ABSTRACT: The damage tolerance approach is used widely in aerospace industry and has a physics-based foundation in fracture mechanics. The fatigue crack growth rate can be determined by calculating the SIF and knowing empirically derived material parameters. Similitude is achieved for different loads, different crack sizes, and different crack shapes. The down side to fracture mechanics is that a ...
