  1. N/A

    SBC: Sharma & Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    There is a growing trend towards the use of ¿Car-Less¿ technology, where a rail-car is not needed to transport road-haul trailers over rail: Trailers operate in the usual manner over highways, drive up to a rail yard and transform to ¿rail-mode¿ with relative ease. In rail mode, many ¿Car-Less¿ units use slightly modified 3-piece, 70-ton freight car trucks. These trucks are no ...

  2. Utilization of Native Grass and Forb Meadows as a Source for Native Seed

    SBC: Solis Environmental            Topic: N/A

    Mandates to use native wildflower and grass seed began in 1987 with the Surface Transportation and Uniform Relocation Assistance Act and have been reinforced by two Executive Orders. Current demand for native seed exceeds the supply therefore the need exists to develop additional native seed sources.

  3. Active Automated Diagnostic System for Aircrafts

    SBC: WILLIAMSRDM, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Aircraft wire damage can be caused by aging, maintenance, vibration, exposure to moisture, and many other factors. However, current wire maintenance and inspection methods are often insufficient to detect these frequent problems. Williams-Pyro, Inc. proposes to develop an aircraft wire maintenance system that detects wiring problems and analyzes the type of fault. This system, called Active Aut ...

  4. Virtual-Impact Particle Sizing for Precursor Powders of Nb3Sn and Bi-2212 Superconductors

    SBC: Accelerator Technology Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Particle size distribution is one of the critical parameters in fabricating high-performance, fine-filament superconductors of Nb3Sn and Bi-2212 using the powder-in-tube (PIT) technique. Even a few large particles in the tubes of a multi-filament PIT billet will limit the size of the drawing or rolling to finish dimension. Since performance scales with the number of filaments in a strand, improv ...

  5. Amorphous Coating for Protection of Austentic Steel in Coal-Fired Environments

    SBC: APPLIED THIN FILMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    65417 More efficient fusion energy systems will require low-activation-based advanced structural materials for the first wall reactor in order to sustain high radioactive doses and stresses at elevated temperatures. SiC-based fiber reinforced composites are attractive, but these composites can only be produced in limited sizes and shapes. Therefore, a suitable joining technology must be develo ...

  6. Quantum Cascade Laser-Based Absorption Spectrometer for Airborne Measurements of Trace Nitrogen Species

    SBC: APPLIED THIN FILMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    65418 Increasing the operational temperatures of coal combustion plants will increase efficiency. The use of higher temperatures will in turn require the replacement of currently-used common alloy steels used as structural components. These components need to withstand temperatures above 700¿C and resist corrosion from flowing coal ash. Ferritic steels are corrosion resistant but lack high t ...

  7. Utilization of Hydrocarbon Fuels in Low-Temperature Solid Oxide Fuel Cells

    SBC: APPLIED THIN FILMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    60633 Fuel cells are widely viewed as the most desirable future power generation method, because of their unique combination of high efficiency, low emissions, size flexibility, and quiet operation. Despite these unique features, the high cost of fuel cells compared with competing technologies has prevented commercial introduction. One of the key factors that increases fuel cell power plant ...
