  1. Broad Spectrum Absorption-Fluorescence Method for Determining Adsorption Capacity of Fly Ash

    SBC: PHOSPHORTECH            Topic: 171FH1

    Interference of unburned and activated carbon in fly ash with air-entraining admixtures (AEA’s) in fresh concrete mixtures is a major concern in the concrete industry. Therefore, a rapid and accurate measurement of adsorption capacity of fly ash is of great interest to this industry. In this project, a new method is suggested, which can qualitatively and quantitatively measure different surfact ...

  2. Broadcast Seeder Implement for Seeding Cover Crops in Standing Cash Crops

    SBC: Mechanized Design            Topic: 813

    The current issue this research addresses is the lack of an affordable method for small and midsize farms to plant cover crops into standing cash crops. Cover crops are crops planted either into standing cash crops (such as corn or soybeans) or in between cash crop seasons that are planted for reasons other than harvesting for grain. Using cover crops can help reduce the amount of irrigation and c ...

  5. A QUICK DIAGNOSTIC TEST TO DETECT A DEADLY BACTERIA INFECTING CHANNEL CATFISH

    SBC: Athens Research And Technology            Topic: N/A

    COMMERCIAL CATFISH PRODUCTION IS SIGNIFICANTLY IMPAIRED BY INFECTIOUS DISEASES, A MAJOR CAUSE OF ECONOMIC LOSSES TO THE CATFISH PRODUCER. ONE OF THE MOST DETRIMENTAL OF THESE INFECTIOUS DISEASES IS ENTERIC SEPTICEMIA OF CATFISH (ESC) CAUSED BY EDWARDSIELLA ICTALURI. IN 1987, APPROXIMATELY $4 MILLION WORTH OF FISH IN MISSISSIPPI ALONE DIED FROM ESC. PROMPT TREATMENT OF INFECTED FISH INCREASES THE C ...
