  1. Resilient Wayside Structures and Passenger Car Survivability

    SBC: PROTECTION ENGINEERING CONSULTANTS LLC            Topic: 171FR3

    Additional passenger fatalities and injuries can occur during derailments due to interaction with wayside structures, such as catenary poles, bridge abutments, and discontinuities in third rails at highway grade crossings. Resilient wayside structures can reduce these risks, by lessening the amount of intrusion, penetration, and passenger motion. PEC and Arup will work together to develop resilien ...

  2. Development of Innovative Welding for High Performance Bridge Steel

    SBC: KAI, LLC            Topic: 132FH1

    With this research, we would like to provide new materials joining methods to the DOT. This will be achieved with a pulse energy store that has already demonstrated game changing capability in welding a wide variety of metals and alloys. The process we are proposing is known as Homopolar Welding. The weld is created by a solid state fusion welding process whereby high current is passed through the ...

  3. Pedestrian Auto Enforcement Program (PAEP)

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 122FH3

    We propose an innovative Pedestrian Automotive System for Enforcement and Safety (PASES) that combines commercial-off-the-shelf video or camera components and state-of-the-art microwave(radar) systems with sophisticated software that will not only provide more effective enforcement through effective evidentiary information, but will also enable predictive actions based on vehicle and pedestrian be ...

  4. Improved Decision Support Tools for State of Good Repair

    SBC: VIASIM            Topic: 131FT2

    Every asset ages. Pipes, roads, computers, cars, etc. This fact is inevitable. And, as a result of the aging process, every asset suffers a degradation in its intended capability or performance over time. Yet every day, millions of people in the U.S. get up in the morning expecting that they will be able to travel to work, drink clean water, use the Internet, and so on. It usually takes a catastro ...

  5. Field Energy Recoil Emission Technology (FERET)

    SBC: Invocon, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Passenger safety concerns have prompted the FAA to elicit energy-sensitive neutron detectors which do not rely on the time-of-flight method and are suitable for use in explosive detection systems. Invocon, Inc. proposes to design an inspection system consisting of an energy source and a detector. Designated FERET sytem, (Field Energy Recoid Emission Technology), it would detect substances identi ...

  7. MULTIVORTEX COLLECTOR OF EXPLOSIVE AGENTS

    SBC: Energy Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE IS A COMPACT, RELIABLE AND INEXPENSIVE METHOD FOR SAMPLING LARGE VOLUMES OF AIR RAPIDLY TO DETERMINE THE CONCENTRATION OF AIRBORNE EXPLOSIVES. THE APPROACH INVOLVES THE USE OF A MULTIVORTEX PRECIPITATOR CAPABLE OF EFFICIENTLY REMOVING FINE PARTICULATES AND LARGE MOLERCULES FROM THE AIR AND COLLECTING THEM FOR CONVENIENT ANALYSIS. DURING PHASE I, A PROTOTYPE WILL BE TESTED FOR COLLECT ...
