  1. Portable Rail Suspension Displacement Monitoring System

    SBC: DFUZION, INC.            Topic: 151FR9

    dFuzion proposes the development of a comprehensive Ride Performance Assessment System (RPAS). RPAS leverages the investment and research already made by FRA in its sponsored portable ride quality meter. By extending the ride quality data acquistion framework to accept inputs from suspension displacement sensors, RPAS can correlate data from acceleration and displacement sensors with geospatial in ...

  5. Development of a Thermographic Device for Evaluating Integrity of Steel Bridge Coatings Nondestructively

    SBC: Fuchs Consulting Inc            Topic: 091FH2

    This effort is advancing the development of a nondestructive evaluation (NDE) tool for quantitative assessment of highway bridge coatings, the Infrared Coating Inspection System (IR‐CIS). The IR‐CIS can be used to improve decision‐making regarding over‐coating or recoating of bridges, by better and more fully quantifying the current condition of coatings in ways not possible using only vis ...

  8. Aircraft Maintenance Management to Unanticipated Failure Events

    SBC: Robbins-GIoia, LLC            Topic: AF131204

    ABSTRACT: The Air Force"s Air Logistics Centers (ALCs) are charged to maintain the fleet at maximum readiness. In order to achieve this goal, the ALCs perform aircraft scheduled maintenance using well-defined planning and scheduling processes and procedures by assigning MRO tasks to minimize the time an aircraft spends at the depot and the associated maintenance costs. However, the current system ...
