  1. Development of a GPU-based High Performance Community Radiative Transfer Model

    SBC: Hyper Sensing, LLC            Topic: 835D

    Computation of the radiative transfer model for a hyperspectral sounder with thousands of spectral channels is very time-consuming. Consequently, operational data assimilation systems can assimilate only a few hundred channels. The radiative transfer model is very suitable for GPU implementation to take advantage of GPU massively parallel computing capability, where radiances at various channels c ...

  2. Lowering Energy use for Copper Production

    SBC: BLUE PLANET STRATEGIES, LLC            Topic: 04d

    Copper is a commodity essential to modern society and its production is very energy intensive. Half of U.S. copper consumption goes to electrical, heating, and plumbing infrastructure in building construction and energy use for copper production topped 43 trillion BTUs in the early 1990s. Currently the U.S. imports about 1/3 of the 2.6 billion pounds of copper used annually. This opens our economy ...

  3. Development of Radiation and Atomic Physics Modeling to Support High-Fidelity Simulation of HEDLP Experiments

    SBC: Prism Computational Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 70a

    The interplay between accurate modeling and well-diagnosed experiments plays a critical role in advancing our understanding of high energy density laboratory plasmas (HEDLPs). It is vital to have high-fidelity computational physics tools that have well-tested radiation physics modeling, and that are readily accessible to researchers in the HEDLP community. There are significant challenges, however ...

  4. Durable Low-Emissivity Coating for Vacuum Glass and Glazing Surfaces Exposed to the Environment

    SBC: V-Glass, INC            Topic: 08b

    Vacuum glazing requires a scratch-resistant Low-E coating. Microscopic pane spacers are required to prevent the two panes from touching under external pressure, but create high contact stresses which can scratch glass and existing Low-E coatings during pane movement with temperature change. Hard pyrolytic coatings can be used, but allow four times more radiant heat loss than sputtered coatings, co ...

  5. 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 ...

  8. DESIGN OF COMPONENTS FOR AN AMPERE INTENSITY, MEV ENERGY, DC ELECTRON BEAM SYSTEM

    SBC: National Electrostatics Corp.            Topic: N/A

    NATIONAL ELECTROSTATICS CORPORATION (NEC) PROPOSES TO DESIGNCRITICAL COMPONENTS, AND INVESTIGATE REQUIRED ION OPTICAL ELEMENTS FOR A 3 MEV, 2-5 AMP DC ELECTRON BEAM. SUCH A SYSTEM WOULD BE BASED ON A VERTICAL TEST PELLETRON ACCELERATOR OF THE VAN DE GRAAFF TYPE OWNED AND OPERATED BY NEC. IN THIS CONCEPT AN ELECTRON BEAM PRODUCED IN THE HIGH VOLTAGE TERMINAL OF THE PELLETRON ACCELERATOR WILL BE ACC ...
