  2. Advanced Truck for High Speed Freight Operations

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

    During Phase I of the project, Sharma & Associates, Inc. developed a concept for a high speed freight truck intended for 70-ton, regular freight and bi-modal operation at speeds up to 150 mph. The truck uses a rigid frame and an independent, compliant, primary suspension for its basic architecture. Constant contact side-bearings and yaw dampers were also added to improve dynamic performance. Ve ...

  8. IMPROVED AEROSOL CAN

    SBC: Materials Engineering &            Topic: N/A

    CANS WILL BURST FROM OVER-PRESSURIZATION AS A RESULT OF THE AEROSOL CAN IS A CONSUMER CONVENIENCE ITEM USED FOR MANYYEARS. HOWEVER, SAFETY PROBLEMS HAVE EXISTED BECAUSE THE CANS WILL BURST FROM OVER-PRESSURIZATION AS A RESULT OF OVER-TEMPERATURE. THE PROBLEM IS MADE ACUTE BY THE INTRODUCTION OF FLAMMABLE PROPELLANTS AND SERIOUS CONCERNS EXIST FOR SAFE TRANSPORT OF THESE CANS IN AIRCRAFT CARGO COMP ...
