  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. Wide-Bandgap Microstructured Semiconductor Neutron Detector

    SBC: Radiation Detection Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 26b

    There is a need for high-efficiency, radiation hard, high-temperature neutron detectors at nuclear reactor and nuclear physics facilities. Nuclear physic experiments require neutron detectors that are robust, compact, low-power, and have high-sensitivity, while stably operating in harsh environments, e.g., high-temperature and high radiation-dose. Wide-bandgap semiconductors will tolerate such env ...

  3. Multiscale Modeling of Supercritical Combustion with Two-Level Simulation on Adaptive Beamlets

    SBC: Symplectic Research Inc            Topic: 17d

    Supercritical carbon dioxide (sCO2) based power cycles is a promising technological venue that can potentially increase the power cycle efficiency in power plant operations. In addition to higher efficiency, the direct-fired sCO2 cycle, in particular, offers other benefits including the facilitation of CO2 capture and sequestration, and potentially simpler designs. In order to develop the next-gen ...
