  1. Advanced Locomotive Energy Storage System

    SBC: Arkansas Power Electronics International, Inc.            Topic: 121FR3

    At present, trains use various dissipative braking systems to slow and stop, and this significant braking energy is ultimately converted to heat and wasted. APEI, Inc. has proposed a hybrid tender which can capture and reuse a significant fraction of this braking energy (at least 50%). The hybrid tender draws power from the rails using a regenerative braking technique rather than by being electr ...

  2. ElectroDynamic Shield for Prevention of Optical Surface Contamination

    SBC: Poly Adaptive LLC            Topic: 122FR2

    The Federal Railroad Administration’s (FRA) Automated Track Inspection Program uses optical systems such as cameras or laser-based systems to monitor rail performance throughout the country. These systems are hindered by adverse weather conditions that allow water, dirt and mud to coat their optical components resulting in unwanted maintenance costs. Thus FRA is seeking a low-cost, practical s ...

  3. ELECTROMAGNETIC ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS WITHIN A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    MRC PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A SAFETY PERFORMANCE INDICATOR (PI) OF THE ELECTROMAGNETIC (EM) PROTECTION STATUS OF A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT (NPP). WE BELIEVE THAT SUCH A PI IS NEEDED BECAUSE: (1) EM ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION IS ON THE INCREASE,(2) ADDITIONAL EM THREATS MUST BE EVALUATED, AND (3) DISRUPTION OF NPP OPERATIONS BY EM EFFECTS CAN AND MUST BE AVOIDED. PREVIOUS STUDIES HAVE ADDRESSED THE ISSUE OF E ...

  4. ADVANCED VACUUM INSULATION FOR REFRIGERATED SHIPPING CONTAINERS

    SBC: Re/spec Inc            Topic: N/A

    A RESEARCH PROGRAM IS PROPOSED TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING ADVANCED VACUUM INSULATIONS TO IMPROVE THE PRODUCTIVITY OF REFRIGERATED SHIPPING CONTAINERS WHILE AVOIDING THE ENVIRONMENTAL RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH CHLOROFLUOROCARBONS (CFC'S) IN FOAM INSULATION CURRENTLY BEING USED. ADVANCED VACUUM INSULATIONS, CURRENTLY UNDER RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT, DO NOT CONTAIN CFC'S AND HAVE VERYHIGH THERM ...

  5. 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 ...
