  1. Cost Effective, Power Efficient, Wireless Sensor Network Based Highway Incident Detection & Warning System

    SBC: Central Signal LLC            Topic: 07FH4

    More than 52% of U.S. urban highway congestion is a direct result of highway incidents.  Federal and State transportation authorities are searching for quick, cost-effective and efficient highway incident detection and warning systems.  Several solutions have been proposed but none could satisfy requirements of transportation authorities.  Central Signal's research and development, ...

  2. Non-contact Track Gage Measurement System (NC-TGMS)

    SBC: DFUZION, INC.            Topic: 081FR4

    One of the causes of derailments occurs when the track gage is no longer compliant with the FRA track safety standards for gage measurments.  Ensuring track gage is in compliance with the FRA track safety standards is therefore of paramount importance to the FRA.  Currently, the FRA wishes to develop a non-contact track gage measurement system that overcomes the limitations of current sy ...

  3. Portable Active Thermographic Coating Inspection System

    SBC: Fuchs Consulting Inc            Topic: 091FH2

    This proposal seeks to produce a unique thermographic coating inspection system that is customized for the inspection of bridge coatings.  This system uses active thermography where IR sources are used to provide controlled heating to a coating system.  The presence of a defect in a coating system will result in differences in heat flow, which can be imaged with an infrared camera.  ...

  4. Roadway Waste Heat Electricity Production Using Impoved Roadway Paving Technologies

    SBC: Planphoria LLC            Topic: 091FH5

    Planphoria will research, define and develp methods to turn our nation's roadways into a giant energy collection and transference system that produces low cost electrical energy close to point of use.  Though roadway environmental conditions change, and different roadway requirements vastly differ from the requirements of other roadways, we will determine the feasibility of this concept by le ...

  7. Software for In-Flight Detection of Widespread Fatigue in Engine Disks

    SBC: Monitoring Technology Corp            Topic: N/A

    The proposed project will demonstrate unique digital signal processing software for automated, early detection of Widespread Fatigue (WF) damage in turbine engine disks. The software, known as RVMD is based on recently patented technology in Rotational Vibrationa Monitoring (RVM). RVMD will measure loss of disk structural rigidity due to WF defects, both from High Cycle and Low Cycle Fatigue. ...

  8. Advanced Concept Basalt Fiber Reinforcement for Concrete

    SBC: Research & Technology Corp            Topic: N/A

    Extensive research (Ukraine) has shown that high strength continuous fibers of basalt can be produced. These fibers are inexpensive and have exceptionally high strength, stiffness and corrosion resistance. Basalt is a naturally occurring volcanic mineral, consisting a variety concentration of oxides. The product envisioned is a low-cost, corrosion resistant replacement for steel bar in reinforc ...
