  1. Feasibility of an ultrasonic based instrument for assessing in-situ pipeline coatings

    SBC: Fbs, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    FBS, Inc. proposes to establish the feasibility of an ultrasonically based device for in-situ evaluation of pipeline coatings and for the archiving of coating properties. Based on our experience gained through DOT and EPRI sponsored work on long range ultrasonics, buried pipes, and tar coated pipes we recognize the need for coating characterization not only as an important factor for inspection d ...

  2. Compact Laser Shearography System for Crack Detection

    SBC: Laser Technology Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Laser Technology Inc. has demonstrated for the first time, the detection of non-visible cracks of less than 10 microns soon after casting of high performance concrete test prisms. Fine cracks may be associated with the two leading causes of concrete deterioration, delayed ettringite formation and alkali-silica reaction. Laser Technology is a leading developer, manufacturere and provider of laser ...

  3. Low-Cost Microcalorimeter Spectrometer for X-Ray Macroanalysis

    SBC: STAR CRYOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: N/A

    A low-cost superconducting transition edge sensor (TES) microcalorimeter spectrometer is described for high energy and high spatial resolution X-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy and microanalysis. The proposed microcalorimeter instrument offers an energy resolution that is comparable to and potentially even better than wavelength dispersive spectrometers, thereby enabling the resolution of inter ...

  4. High-Speed Dynamic 3D Surface Mapping System

    SBC: Conrad Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Conrad Technologies, Inc. (CTI) proposes a non-contact, dynamic 3D position sensor based on optical triangulation using multiple radiating LED targets to measure intrusion of an automobile structure into the occupant compartment during full-scale crash tests. CTI has significant experience developing non-contact measurement instruments. CTI has developed a Motion Imaging and Tracking Acquisition ...

  5. Evaluation of Composite Joints in General Aviation Structures

    SBC: Materials Sciences LLC            Topic: N/A

    During the Phase I program, MSC demonstrated a powerful new software tool designed for the analysis of bonded joints in General Aviation (GA) aircraft. The tool can handle the complex geometry and boundary conditions found in typical joints, and has been shown to be exceptionally accurate. An easy-to-use front end to the code was also demonstrated. In addition, Materials Sciences Corporation (M ...

  10. A Neural Network-based System for Automated Detection of Wire Insulation Chafing from TDR/FDR Data

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: N/A

    This proposal is to develop an automated system for identification and characterization of chafing in the aircraft wiring. Chafing degrades wiring integrity and can lead to shorts and/or damaged data pathways. Shorts have been associated with deadly in-flight fires. Damaged data pathways have caused engine shutdowns, loss of control, and other safety hazards. Currently recognizing and measurin ...
