  1. 3D Tip Characterization and Surface Reconstruction

    SBC: Nanometrology International, Inc.            Topic: 9070168TT

    Nanometrology International, Inc. (NMI) proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of 3-dimensional (3D) characterization of nanoscale objects using scanning probe microscopy (SPM) with a measurement uncertainty of less than 0.7 nm. To accomplish this task, we propose a novel method of 3D tip characterization and use of an innovative surface reconstruction algorithm recently introduced by NIST and th ...

  4. DEVELOPMENT OF A CAR BED FOR PREMATURE AND PHYSICALLY DISABLED INFANTS

    SBC: HARTLEY ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    IT IS A UNIVERSALLY ACCEPTED FACT THAT THE PROPER USE OF WELL DESIGNED INFANT AND CHILD RESTRAINT SYSTEMS CAN SIGNIFICANTLY DECREASE THE RISK OF DEATH AND SERIOUS INJURY IN MOTOR VEHICLE CRASHS INVOLVING NORMAL CHILDREN. HOWEVER,WHEN PREMATURE INFANTS ARE PLACED IN SEMI-RECLINED INFANT SAFETY SEATS THERE IS A POTENTIAL FOR RESPIRATORY COMPROMISE. IN ADDITION, MANY DISABLED INFANTS ARE UNABLE TO TR ...

  5. Development of a non-destructive, quantitative residual stress assessment tool

    SBC: Generation 2 Materials Technology Llc            Topic: 111PH2

    A nondestructive tool will be developed to quatitatively assess residual stress in pipelines from the exterior and through coatings. Residual stress is a critical factor that determines the cracking susceptibility of pipeline steels, but existing methods for measuring mechanical damage in pipeline steels are incapable of quantifying the residual stress levels. A larger gouge or dent does not nec ...

  7. Long Term Behavior, Failure Analysis & In-Service Testing of Composite Cylinders

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: 101PH1

    TRI proposes to develop reliable methodology and protocols for in-service inspection,recertifying and retiring DOT COPVs to maximize service life while ensuring personnel safety. This method must be sufficiently robust to prevent in-service failures, while being straightforward and affordable enough to be conducted at cylinder recertification facilities. To accomplish this with a high degree of co ...

  10. PROGRAMMABLE REFLECTANCE OF ARTIFICIAL FLAWS IN RAIL MATERIALS

    SBC: REINHART & ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    A PROGRAMMABLE DEFECT SIMULATOR IS NEEDED TO TEST ULTRASONIC RAIL FLAW DETECTION SYSTEMS. CALIBRATION STANDARDS CAN BE DEVELOPED WITH VARIABLE PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS ACCORDING TO A PREDESCRIBED SCHEME THAT SIMULATES COMMONLY-OCCURRING FLAWS (CROSS-HEAD FATIGUE CRACKS) IN RAILWAY SYSTEM RAILS. THIS PROJECT WOULD DEVELOP A METHOD OF ALTERING THE EFFECTIVE REFLECTIVITY OF A SOLID-GAS INTERFACE THRO ...
