  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 ...

  7. Electrionically Steered Antenna for Advanced RF Communications

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: H904

    Future robotic and human space exploration vehicles will be producing large quantities of data that needs transmitted between vehicles and to the ground stations. However, these vehicles will be tightly constrained in size, weight, and power sources. Traditional methods of using single function elements will not be able to meet these requirements. Therefore, advanced technologies that utilize st ...
