  1. APA: Air Pressure Alert Device

    SBC: DESERT STAR SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: 814

    For divers, out of air situations present a particular hazard. They can result in a dangerous emergency ascent, or failure of a diver to reach the surface. A low air pressure alert (APA) device can provide a valuable margin of safety, but careful design is required. In order for the device to be adopted, it must no t only be effective but it must offer ease of use and a streamlined, erogonomic des ...

  4. A Method for Specification of Efficeint and Effective Strategies for Measurement of a Measurement Article on a Coordinate Measuring Machine by Use of Measurement Simulation Techniques

    SBC: METROSAGE, L L C            Topic: N/A

    We propose the definition, design, and prototype development of a software tool for use by the U.S. manufacturing community to enable the automated production of design-based measurement strategies of know reliability and high economic efficiency for coordinate measuring machines (CMMs). The measurement strategies so generated will meet the objective of reducing overall costs to near-minimal value ...

  5. Development of Pulse/DC Characterization System for LEDs

    SBC: Arroyo Instruments, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Development of LEDs for various applications, such a vehicle lighting, signage, and commercial and residential solid state lighting is progressing at a rapid pace. Various methods exist for measuring the performance of LEDs, but variations in test configurations, thermal management, T&M equipment, and operator experience lead to significant variation in measured performance. The project will desig ...

  8. Thomas Drop Net Concept

    SBC: Ocean Friendly            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of the Thomas Drop Net Concept is to introduce a new method of catching pure schools of surface feding fish with the ability to select only those schools of targeted species which are of desirable size. The method involves a helicopter deployed drop net which is lowered around a selected school of targeted species, pursed, and left floating. When the seiner arrives, they place a tr ...

  9. Physics Based Life Prediction of Thermal Barrier Coatings in Gas Turbines

    SBC: Optimal Corp            Topic: N/A

    Innovative methods, based on thermodynamics theory, will be developed to establish a unified approach in quantifying the damage state of thermal barrier coatings (TBC) under high temperature service conditions. After surveying existing material damage models, a mechanistic model which describes rate- and temperature-dependent deformation behavior of TBC with material damage will be proposed. Spe ...
