  1. STUDY AND EVALUATION OF FIBER REINFORCED DOWELL BARS FOR USEIN HIGHWAYS

    SBC: Etc Engineers Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DOWEL BARS HAVE TRADITIONALLY BEEN USED AS AN IMPORTANT LOADTRANSFER MECHANISM ON OUR FEDERAL HIGHWAYS. A SIGNIFICANT PROBLEM OCCURRS WITH THE USE OF THESE BARS DUE TO RUST AND RESULTANT SPALLING AND CRACKING CONCRETE. COMPOSITE REINFORCING BARS (CRB) HAVE BECOME WIDELY USED FOR CRACK CONTROL IN MANY REINFORCED CONCRETE STRUCTURES EXPOSED TO AGGRESSIVE ENVIRONMENTS. A LIMITED AMOUNT OF DATA IS AVA ...

  2. HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTORS WITH IMPROVED CURRENT DENSITIES

    SBC: Cryopower Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE APPLICATION OF HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTORS IS SEVERELY LIMITED BY THE LOW CURRENT DENSITIES ACHIEVABLE IN BULK MATERIALS, SUCH AS Y1BA2CU3O(7-X), OR 123 FOR SHORT. THE LARGE CURRENT DENSITIES OBSERVED WITHIN INDIVIDUAL GRAINS (AND IN THIN FILMS) ARE REDUCED BY "WEAK LINKS" AT THE GRAIN BOUNDARIES, CAUSED BY MISALIGNMENT OF THE ANISOTROPIC GRAINS AND BY INSULATING IMPURITY PHASES. SOME OF ...

  3. SHOCK HARDENED ON-BOARD DATA ACQUISITION SYSTEM

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO DEVELOP A COMPACT, RUGGED, TWELVE-CHANNEL (MINIMUM) DIGITAL DATA ACQUISITION SYSTEM CAPABLE OF MEASURING AND RECORDING SHOCK EXPERIENCES ASSOCIATED WITH WEAPON DELIVERY AND USE. THE SYSTEM MAY BE MODULAR, BUT EACH MODULE MUST CONTAIN FOUR DATA CHANNELS AND BE NO LONGER THAN 2.5 INCHES MAXIMUM DIMENSION. MECHANICAL DESIGN OF THE SYSTEM MUST BE SUCH THAT IT WILL O ...

  4. SIDEBAND SUPPRESSION IN HIGH POWER FREE ELECTRON LASERS

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A SELF-REGENERATIVE FEEDBACK TECHNIQUE IS BEING INVESTIGATEDTO SUPPRESS THE FORMATION OF SIDEBANDS THAT LIMIT THE SPECTRAL BRIGHTNESS AND GENERAL PERFORMANCE OF PRESENT HIGH-POWER FREE ELECTRON LASERS (FELS). THIS TECHNIQUE DOES NOT INVOLVE INTRA-CAVITY COMPONENTS THAT SUFFER LOSS DAMAGE DUE TO HIGH POWER OPERATION. A POTENTIAL BREAKTHROUGH IN FEL TECHNOLOGY, ANALYSIS AND SIMULATION ARE BEING PERF ...

  5. NEW CONCEPTS AND INNOVATIONS FOR LOGISTICS SUPPORT (LOGISTICS SUPPORT PLANNING FOR HYPERSONIC VEHICLES)

    SBC: SCIENCE & ENGINEERING ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    THIS EFFORT WOULD SCOPE THE LOGISTICS PLANNING EFFORTS REQUIRED FOR THE AIR FORCE TO SUPPORT AN ENTIRELY NEW CLASS OF HYPERSONIC VEHICLES,EFFORTS FROM BASE PLANNING TO OPERATIONAL MAINTENANCE SUPPORT. A MATRIX OF PROBABLE WORLD SETTINGS AND MISSION SCENARIOS WOULD SERVE AS A STARTING POINT TO IDENTIFY FIRST-ORDER LFIGHT SYSTEM MISSION REQUIREMENTS, SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS AND ASSOCIATED GROUND SUPPORT ...

  6. MULTICONDUCTOR CABLE PARAMETER MEASUREMENT CONCEPTS

    SBC: SCIENCE & ENGINEERING ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    THIS SMALL BUSINESS INNOVATIVE RESEARCH EFFORT WILL PROVIDE A PROTOTYPE MEASUREMENT SYSTEM WHICH CAN BE USED TO DETERMINE THE RLCM COUPLING PARAMETERS TO INTERIOR WIRES OF A MULTICONDUCTOR CABLE. KNOWLEDGE OF THE COUPLING PARAMETERS WILL ALLOW CALCULATION OF CURRENTS AND VOLTAGES ON INTERIOR WIRES INDUCED FROM SHIELD CURRENTS DUETO AN INCIDENT EMP OR DIRECT LIGHTNING STRIKE. THE PROTOTYPE MEASUREM ...

  7. MEGAVOLT MEGAHERTZ PULSE GENERATOR TECHNOLOGY

    SBC: Tetra Corporation            Topic: N/A

    A HIGH VOLTAGE PULSE GENERATOR TECHNOLOGY IS BEING DEVELOPEDFOR PRACTICAL BEAM ACCELERATORS, PULSED X-RAY SOURCES AND OTHER PULSE POWER APPLICATIONS. THE SPECIFIC TECHNOLOGYCAPABILITY IS SHORT PULSE WIDTH (10-250 NSEC), HIGH VOLTAGE PULSE (1 MV AND ABOVE) DELIVERED AT A HIGH REPETITION RATE (1 MHZ AND ABOVE). IN THIS PROGRAM THE TECHNOLOGY PERFORMANCE IS BEING INVESTIGATED AND A SMALL SCALE PROOF ...

  8. THE USE OF RECLAIMED PBX MATERIALS AS BLASTING AGENTS

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    ORDNANCE RECLAMATION ACTIVITIES RESULT IN A SURPLUS OF PLASTIC BONDED EXPLOSIVES (PBXS). AS CURRENTLY FORMULATED, THESE MATERIALS ARE TOO ENERGETIC FOR COMMERCIAL BLASTING APPLICATIONS. PBXS COULD BE MODIFIED THROUGH THE USE OF LOW DENSITY FILLERS TO GENERATE APPROPRIATE EXPLOSIVE CHARACTERISTICS. SUCH MATERIALS COULD REDUCE DRILLING REQUIREMENTS FOR BLASTIN PURPOSES, THUS, ACHIEVING COST SAVINGS. ...

  9. MOBILE AUTOMATED HIGH POWER MICROWAVE DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEM

    SBC: Voss Scientific, LLC            Topic: N/A

    THE ADVENT OF MULTI-HZ REP-RATED HPM SOURCES FOR EFFECTS TESTING PLACES SEVERE DEMANDS ON HPM DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEMS, ESPECIALLY IN FIELD USE. INCREASED EMPHASIS ON HIGH SHOT RATES AND THE DIFFICULTY OF QUICKLY SETTING UP AND DEBUGGING THE NECESSARY DIAGNOSTIC INSTRUMENTATION RESULTS IN FIELD EXPERIMENTS THAT OFTEN RECORD ONLY THE MOST BASIC DIAGNOSTIC INFORMATION, SUCH AS POWER DENSITY ENVELOPE AND F ...
