  1. Refactor++: Automated Support for Program Enhancements

    SBC: SEMANTIC DESIGNS            Topic: 62c

    Science and engineering depend on evolving ever more complex software, typically coded in C++, to investigate phenomena or design sophisticated products. The rate of delivered value for such software is often limited by its organization, and scientists/engineers spend significant effort trying to understand the code organization and restructuring the code to enable the next interesting concept o ...

  2. Multiscale Two-Phase Bubbly Flow Modeling

    SBC: DYNAFLOW, INC            Topic: 38a

    Multiphase bubbly mixture flows are of importance in turbomachinery, pipelines, cooling systems, reaction towers, as well as in various applications in petroleum, chemical, geothermal, and nuclear industries. The presence of the gaseous component has a strong influence on performance and efficiency. The ability to predict the flow behavior accurately is essential in designing energy efficient two- ...

  3. Ultra Lightweight High Pressure Hydrogen Fuel Tanks Reinforced with Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: 03a

    At the present time, carbon fiber tanks are very expensive, with the high pressure vessel industry standard Toray T700 carbon fiber costing between $20 and $50 per kilogram alone. At this high price, the carbon fiber currently comprises as much as 75% of the overall tank cost and is a major roadblock on the path to commercialization. To make hydrogen fuel cells in early market and light-duty vehic ...

  4. High Specific Activity Sm-153 by Post Irradiation Isotope Separation

    SBC: IsoTherapeutics Group LLC            Topic: 46b

    Samarium-153 (153Sm) has ideal nuclear properties for a variety of therapeutic applications; however, it is only available in low specific activity (radioactivity/weight) form. While large quantities can be made by the 152Sm(n,)153Sm reaction in a medium flux reactor such as at the University of Missouri Research Reactor Center (MURR), typical irradiation parameters result in less th ...

  5. Tantalum Tube for Diffusion Barriers

    SBC: Shear Form Inc            Topic: 64a

    Diffusion barriers used in Nb3Sn wire are currently fabricated by wrapping Ta sheet into a tube with an overlap seam. The result of current practice is non- uniform deformation in the Ta sheet as it thins by wire drawing because of non-uniform grain size and texture. In addition, a significant portion of the diffusion barrier is twice as thick as need be. The overlap is wasteful of Ta and produc ...

  6. Low Temperature, Electrochemical Ammonia Synthesis

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: 19

    72684-Approximately 3% of the world¿s energy consumption goes into ammonia synthesis. By far, the most important method of making ammonia is the Haber-Bosch system, which accounts for over 90% of the world¿s ammonia production. However, this process suffers from low product yield and requires synthesis at high temperatures and pressures. An efficient, low-cost method for ammonia production co ...

  7. Improved Electron Yield and Spin-Polarization from III-V Photocathodes via Bias Enhanced Carrier Drift

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: 44

    72323- The exploration of certain regimes of high energy physics will require the development of photocathodes with emitted electron spin-polarizations above 90%. Emitted electron spin-polarizations approaching 90% have been achieved, but at the expense of quantum yield. Because natural diffusion spatial spread disfavors complete transport to the emitting surface, this project will develop tec ...

  8. In Situ Microbial Conversion of Sequestered Greenhouse Gases

    SBC: Altuda Energy Corporation            Topic: 15

    72494-This project will use microbiological bioconversion technology in situ to convert sequestered greenhouse gases, including carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide, into methane and other useful organic compounds. Indigenous anaerobic bacteria will be added to coal along with supplemental nutrients to stimulate bioconversion. In Phase I, a large number of coal samples were collected from coalbed ...

  9. Reduction of Non-CO2 Greenhouse Gas Emissions Through In Situ Bioconversion of Methane

    SBC: Altuda Energy Corporation            Topic: 30

    72593-Methane has a global warming potential 21 times greater than carbon dioxide and a much shorter half-life in the atmosphere. Therefore, on a ton-by-ton basis, technology that targets methane emissions would mitigate global warming at a faster rate than the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions. Because methane recovery from coal mines and landfills is economically driven, and recovery proje ...

  10. Enhanced Performance Carbon Foam Heat Exchanger for Power Plant Cooling

    SBC: Ceramic Composites, Inc.            Topic: 30

    72731-Thermoelectric power plants account for 39% of the fresh water withdrawn from streams and lakes in the United States, second only to agriculture. 3.3 billion gallons daily are lost to evaporation and 190 billion returned as warm water discharge. The link between adequate supplies of low-cost energy and freshwater is clearly recognized in President Bush¿s National Energy Policy. The dem ...
