  2. AN ALTERNATE MATERIAL FOR CONSTRUCTION OF SHELL PADS TO ESTABLISH OYSTER SEED BEDS AND COMMERCIAL REEFS

    SBC: Continental Shelf Assocs Inc.            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCH ON AN ALTERNATE MATERIAL, ANHYDRITE CALCIUM SULFATE, FOR USE AS CULTCH IN CONSTRUCTING SEED BEDS AND ARTIFICIAL OYSTER REEFS IS HEREIN PROPOSED. GIVEN THE FACTS THAT OYSTER PRODUCTION IN THE UNITED STATES HAS DECLINED GREATLY SINCE 1908 AND THAT NATURAL OYSTERSHELL IS SCARCE AND EXPENSIVE, MOTIVATION FOR USE OF THIS ALTERNATE MATERIAL AS CULTCH INCLUDES ITS CONTINUOUS PRODUCTION, LOW COST ...

  3. AN INTEGRATED WIND SPEED AND WIND DIRECTION SENSOR

    SBC: Climatronics Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE FEASIBILITY OF USING A CONVENTIONAL 3-CUP ANEMOMETER AND A HEATED THERMISTOR TO OBTAIN WIND SPEED AND WIND DIRECTION IS PROPOSED. THE TECHNIQUE ONLY REQUIRESKNOWLEDGE OF MONITORING THE ROTATION RATE OF THE ANEMOMETER AND DETERMINING THE PEAK RESPONSE OF A HEATED THERMISTOR WHICH IS EXPOSED TO THE FLOW ONCE WITH EACH REVOLUTION OF THE CUP ANEMOMETER VIA A SENSING PORT. THE TECHNIQUE DOES NOT RE ...

  4. AUTOMATED FABRICATION OF NET SHAPE MICROSTALLINE AND COMPOSITE METAL STRUCTURES WITHOUT MOLDS

    SBC: ADC Acquisition Co. dba Automated Dynamics            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT INVOLVES THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW TECHNIQUE FOR THE GENERATION OF COMPLEX THREE-DIMENSIONAL STRUCTURES DIRECTLY FROM A CAD/CAM DATABASE WITHOUT THE NEED FOR PRELIMINARY PROCESSES (MOLDS) OR SUBSEQUENT MACHINING (THE PARTS ARE FABRICATED TO NET SHAPE). THE INNOVATION IS TO USE INDEPENDENTLY TARGETED PARTICLES OF METAL OR COMPOSITE METAL TO BUILD STRUCTURES UNDER COMPUTER CONTROL IN MUC ...

  6. DEVELOPMENT OF ANALYSIS TOOL FOR HIGH AND LOW VELOCITY ICE INDENTATION PROBLEMS

    SBC: Simtex Inc.            Topic: N/A

    TWO MAJOR OBSTACLES CONFRONTED PREVIOUS ATTEMPTS TO ANALYZE FIELD ICE BEHAVIOR; NAMELY: THE LACK OF PROPER CONSTITUTIVE LAWS TO MODEL REALISTIC ICE BEHAVIOR, PARTICULARLY AT HIGH STRAIN-RATES, AND THE DIFFICULTY IN INCORPORATING LARGE ICE DEFORMATIONS IN THE ANALYSIS. THIS PROPOSAL PRESENTS A STUDY WHICH WILL IMPLEMENT AN ICE CONSTITUTIVE MODEL SUBROUTINE TO WORK IN CONJUNCTION WITH A LAGRANGE EXP ...

  7. EFFICIENT COMMUNICATION USING THE METEOR BURST CHANNEL

    SBC: Scs Telecom, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE FREQUENCY SPECTRUM THROUGHOUT THE WORLD IS EXTREMELY CONGESTED AND AN URGENT NEED FOR AN ALTERNATE MEANS OF COMMUNICATIONS EXISTS FOR PRESENT AND FUTURE SOCIETIES. THEMETEOR BURST CHANNEL (MBC) REPRESENTS SUCH AN ALTERNATE MODEOF COMMUNICATION. LOCATED BETWEEN 40 - 80 MHZ, THE METEOR BURST CHANNEL IS ONLY RECENTLY BEING CONSIDERED FOR USE BY INDUSTRY AND GOVERNMENT AGENCIES. THE CHANNEL CAN BE ...

  8. ENRICHMENT OF A BRACKISH WATER POND FOR SHELLFISH CULTURE

    SBC: Ocean Pond Corp.            Topic: N/A

    A MAJOR CONSTRAINT UPON THE CULTURE OF EDIBLE MARINE ORGAN- ISMS ON A COMMERCIAL SCALE IN MOST COASTAL STATES IS THE LACK OF AVAILABILITY OF SUITABLE CULTURE AREAS. MANY ECOLOGICALLY FAVORABLE AREAS OF THE COASTLINE ARE CLOSED TO AQUA CULTURE AS A RESULT OF ZONING RESTRICTIONS, LOCAL ORDINANCESAND SOCIAL RESISTANCE. AS A RESULT, THE ONLY RECOURSE FOR MANY AQUACULTURE ENTERPRISES MAY BE TO DEVELOP ...

  9. FRICTIONAL INSTABILITIES IN ROLLING BEARINGS

    SBC: Pradeep K Gupta Inc            Topic: N/A

    A COMPUTER MODELING APPROACH IS PROPOSED TO STUDY THE EFFECT OF FRICTION OR TRACTION CHARACTERISTICS OF LUBRICANTS ON THE STABILITY OF BEARING ELEMENTS AND THE OVERALL LIFE OF A ROLLING BEARING. THE PROPOSED APPROACH CONSISTS OF USING AN EXISTING BEARING DYNAMICS COMPUTER PROGRAM TO SIMULATE THE DYNAMIC PERFORMANCE OF THE BEARING AS A FUNCTION OF THE FRICTION BEHAVIOR AT THE ROLLING ELEMENT/RACE, ...

  10. GRADIENT-INDEX OPTICAL COMPONENTS

    SBC: GRADIENT LENS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED RESEARCH RELATES TO THE REDUCTION IN NUMBER OF ELEMENTS AND INCREASE OF PERFORMANCE OF OPTICAL SYSTEMS. BY ADDING A SPATIAL INDEX OF REFRACTION DISTRIBUTION (GRADIENT-INDEX), THE NUMBER OF ELEMENTS COULD BE SUBSTANTIALLY REDUCED. IN THE PROPOSED RESEARCH, DESIGN ANALYSIS WILL BE CONDUCTED TO DETERMINE THE OPTIMUM PROFILESFOR HIGH QUALITY LENS SYSTEMS. PHASE II RESEARCH WILL STUDYTHE P ...
