  1. CAD Model and CR and MRI Scan Data to MCNP Input Format Conversion Software

    SBC: White Rock Science            Topic: N/A

    We will develop two programs to process data describing a model geometry and convert it to input acceptable to the Monte Carlo transport codes MCNP and MCNPX. One program will read CAD files in the ACIS solid body SAT format. Solid bodies, surfaces, and cells described in the SAT file will be converted to equivalent MCNP objects where available. Where there is no MCNP equivalent, such as for splin ...

  2. Distributed Relevance Ranking in Heterogeneous Document Collections

    SBC: Deep Web Technologies, Llc            Topic: N/A

    72223S03-I Given the large and ever-growing volume of scientific information spread throughout the Internet, a researcher with limited time needs help to determine the most relevant documents to review. No satisfactory tools exist to retrieve the most relevant documents across different collections. Therefore, this project will develop, test, and implement key components of a distributed approa ...

  3. Modification of the Composite and Quality of Hybrid Poplar Biomass in the Pacific Northwest

    SBC: GREENWOOD RESOURCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    73021B03-I There is a pressing need for the development of renewable energy sources in the Pacific Northwest. Hybrid poplar plantations have been developed extensively in the region for the pulp and paper, veneer, furniture, and environmental-remediation industries, and can be expanded further to provide renewable raw materials for the biofuels and bioproducts industries. The availability of ne ...

  4. Improved Silicon Carbide Materials for Very High-Temperature, Fast-Spectrum Nuclear Energy Systems

    SBC: Lightweight Solutions, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    72556B03-I Advanced materials are sought that can meet the very demanding conditions required for a fast spectrum nuclear energy system to operate at temperatures greater than 900¿C. Silicon carbide (SiC)-based materials are prime candidates and have received extensive investigation; however, there remains a need for improved material performance, reduced manufacturing costs, and improved fabri ...

  5. Development of a New, Low Frequency, Rf-Focused Linac Structure

    SBC: Linac Systems            Topic: N/A

    70755S02-II The acceleration of proton, light-ion, and heavy-ion beams are important for many scientific, medical, industrial, and defense applications. Developments that reduce the size, cost, and complexity of these accelerator systems would be welcome. The weakest link in most accelerator systems is the low energy end, where the disruptive effects of acceleration are the greatest and the ...

  7. Low Cost, High Current Advanced Inverter Packaging with Integral Liquid-Cooled Heat Exchanger

    SBC: Rinehart Motion Systems, Llc            Topic: N/A

    73208S03-I Electric and hybrid vehicles, fuel cells, photovoltaic farms, and a host of emerging alternative power technologies could reduce our need for foreign oil imports, and reduce global pollution. These technologies are not presently cost effective, in large part due to the cost and reliability of the power electronics required to convert DC power to AC power for interfacing to the utility ...

  8. A Reliable Optical System for Natural Gas Pipeline Leak Detection

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    72927S03-I The safety and reliability of the nation¿s natural gas infrastructure requires the rapid and efficient detection of pipeline leaks. Existing methods have the requisite sensitivity, but are too slow. What is needed is a rapid, remote sensing system, suitable for aircraft deployment, that can provide short term (hours to weeks) monitoring of potential trouble spots. This project wi ...

  9. High Precision CO2 Sensor for Balloon Sonde Atmospheric Measurements

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    72037S03-I A better scientific understanding of the sources and sinks of CO2, and of the interactions between the biosphere and atmosphere (troposphere and stratosphere) are needed. However, in situ measurements have been restricted to airplane or large stratospheric-type balloon gondola platforms, due to the size, weight, and power requirements of current instrumentation. A more frequent, wide ...

  10. System for Imaging Leaks from the Primary Water Loop

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    72829S03-I The primary water loop in a nuclear reactor includes numerous welds which can, over time, develop leaks. Existing methods for leak detection are slow, resulting in costly down-time. A system that could rapidly identify the location of leaks would improve the safety and economics of plant operation. This project will develop technology for illuminating the leaking area with a hand he ...
