  1. Electromagnetic Resonance Sensors for Determination of Moisture Content in Concrete

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    The overall quality and the comprehensive strength, in particular, of concrete are critically dependent on the water content in the concrete mixture. It is also essential to know if the concrete has reached a stage of moisture equilibrium before surface finishes such as paint or carpet can be applied. At present, no reliable method or easy-to-use instrument exists for determining the moisture co ...

  2. CAD of Non-linear Optical Properties of Thin-film Structures

    SBC: Autometric Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal addresses development of CAD software for simulating non-linear optical materials. The software will provide a virtual lab in which experimental setups are simulated. The proposed software is based on the use of a Maxwell differential equation solver, the Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) method. This numerical method has been developed by numerous researchers since 1968 and no ...

  3. On-Wafer Measurement Accuracy Assessment Tool Kit

    SBC: Cascade Microtech, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The traceability of on-wafer calibration standards has long been an issue among the microwave measurement community, and the proliferation of new calibration methods, elements, and applications only exacerbates the problem. This diversity in calibration needs has made traceability of a physical reference impractical. As a result, the NIST developed a procedure which can compare on-wafer calibrat ...

  4. ASSESSING AND INCREASING THE TESTABILITY OF OBJECT-ORIENTED SOFTWARE

    SBC: Cigital, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SOFTWARE HAS BECOME EXPENSIVE; BY THE YEAR 2000, IT REPORTEDLY WILL BE A 2 TRILLION DOLLAR INDUSTRY WORLDWIDE. TO REDUCE COSTS, IT IS VITAL TO REUSE CODE. OBJECT-ORIENTED (00) LANGUAGES ARE TOUTED TODAY FOR THE EASE WITH WHICH SOFTWARE COMPONENTS WRITTEN IN THEM CAN BE REUSED. DUE TO THIS CHARACTERISTIC (ALONG WITH OTHER BENEFITS FO 00 SOFTWARE), SOFTWARE VENDORS ARE BEGINNING TO WRITE CRITICAL AP ...

  5. Development of an On-Line Density Measurement Technique for Fluid Flow with a 0.001% Accuracy

    SBC: HY-Tech Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    The accurate measurement of fluid densities flowing in pipes is important for custodial monitoring of valuable and/or controlled substances. Most on-line fluid flow meters require independent determination of the fluid density while Coriolis type meters, which directly measure the fluid mass, are off-lie devices. HY-Tech is proposing to develop a laser based diagnostic techique for measuring the ...

  6. Synthesis of Ultrafine Silicon Carbide

    SBC: Materials Modifications Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Nanosize, non-oxide ceramic powders such as silicon carbide and its composites, are desirable for use as components in high-power microelectronic devices and tubes, sensors, optical mirrors, filters, nozzles, panels and sheets in many energy related applications. The properties required for these applications include high-temperature strength, high thermal conductivity, low thermal expansion, lig ...

  7. AN ASSESSMENT AND TEACHING TOOL FOR NATIONAL EDUCATION GOALS

    SBC: Research Development Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THE ADMINISTRATION HAS SET FORTH AN AMBITIOUS AGENDA IN "GOALS 2000" TO IMPROVE EDUCATION WITHIN OUR NATION. PRINCIPLES FROM QUALITY MANAGEMENT CAN PLAY A STRATEGIC ROLE IN HELPING US MEET THESE EDUCATION OBJECTIVES. BY EMPHASIZING THE STUDENT AS THE CUSTOMER AND KNOWLEDGE AS THE PRODUCT BEING DELIVERED, RESEARCH DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION (RDC) PROPOSES A METHODOLOGY FOR IMPROVING EDUCATION, PARTICU ...

  8. Automated Support for Domain Engineering and System Construction

    SBC: Reuse, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Domain modeling and automated software construction offers significant potential for rapidly producing high quality software systems within many application domains, specially in mature and stable application domains where many variations of similar systems are generated. There is now a clear opportunity to leverage off the work that has already been done in constructing domain-engineering suppor ...

  9. ROLE-BASED ACCESS CONTROL

    SBC: Seta Corp.            Topic: N/A

    ROLE-BASED ACCESS CONTROL (RBAC) IS AN IDEAN WHOSE TIME HAS COME. DAC AND MAC, AS SPECIFIED IN DOD'S LANDMARK ORANGE BOOK, ARE INADEQUATE FOR MANY COMMERCIAL AND CIVILIAN GOVERNMENT ORGANIZATIONS. DAC IS TOO WEAK AND MAC IS FOCUSSED ON CONFIDENTIALITY OF CLASSIFIED INFORMATION. RBAC HAS THEREFORE EMERGED AS A THIRD FORM OF ACCESS CONTROL TO FILL THIS URGENT NEED. ALTHOUGH THERE IS A GROWING CONSEN ...

  10. Heat Flux Instrumentation for Building Components

    SBC: Vatell Corporation            Topic: N/A

    A new method for constructing heat flux sensors of the differential thermopile type will be developed to produce sensors for testing building components. The new sensors will be thin, readily attached to structures such as walls, floors and roofs, and will have sufficiently low thermal resistance to enable accurate measurements of heat flux and temperature over the full range of building componen ...
