  1. A Community Focused Participatory Research Program to Evaluate COSolutions

    SBC: INNOVATIVE EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES            Topic: 85

    Childhood obesity is a complex, multi-faceted problem which has been traced to many preventable risk factors, not the least of which includes; food access, outdoor ads, crime/safety, racial and income disparities, as well as increasing sedentary behaviors caused by excessive screen time. The economic impact of obesity related disease has proven quite significant. The direct cost of childhood obesi ...

  2. A Computational Tool for Design and Operation of Coolers/Dryers for Feed Pellets

    SBC: INNOVATIVE RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Cooling and drying of feed pellets are the most important operations in the feed manufacturing industry. These operations are carried out simultaneously, in a single machine, by passing ambient air through a moving bed of pellets. However, simultaneous control of both these processes is very difficult. Overdrying of pellets is a common problem that costs several million dollars to feed processi ...

  3. A NEW RAPID TEST FOR SALMONELLA DETECTION USING LIPOSOME-ENTRAPPED MOLECULES

    SBC: Ohmicron Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THE TESTING FOR SALMONELLA CURRENTLY INVOLVES METHODOLOGY THAT REQUIRES 3-8 DAYS TO COMPLETE AND A FAIRLY SOPHISTICAT ED SKILL LEVEL TO PERFORM. THIS PROJECT IS DESIGNED TO D DEVELOP BOTH MANUAL AND BIOSENSOR-BASED HOMOGENEOUS ASSAYS THAT WILL REDUCE THE DETECTION TIME OF SALMONELLA TO WITHIN 24 HOURS AND BE TECHNICALLY SIMPLER TO PERFORM. THE NOVEL ASPECT IS THE USE OF A LIMPSOME-ENCAPSULATED ENZ ...

  4. A Scalable Environmental Controller with Integrated Solar Thermal Storage and Extraction for Field Protected Agriculture

    SBC: Scenic Valley Farm LLC            Topic: 812

    High Tunnels (commonly called poly tunnels or hoop houses) are a type of field protected agriculture. They are essentially an intermediary between the full environmental risk-taking of outdoor production, and the controlled conditions, and relatively high energy use, of a conventional greenhouse. There are hundreds of thousands of acres in cultivation under high tunnels across the world. Domestica ...

  5. An In-Line Test for the Colorimetric Determination of Somatic Cell Count

    SBC: PORTASCIENCE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    In Phase I, PortaScience successfully built an automated prototype unit for determining the somatic cell count of dairy milk samples using a liquid colorimetric assay. The prototype unit can perform the following functions: sip milk samples, add buffer/dye solutions, mix all solutions and generate a voltage reading at a fixed timed interval yielding quantitative values for the somatic cell count. ...

  6. An Intermodal Operations Planning & Coordination System

    SBC: Zeta-Tech Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposed activity will conduct case studies of six selected United States ports to determine whether an integrated terminal information system in each of them might deliver significant benefits to port operators, port users, and shippers. Using the experience of the railroad industry as a guide, problems and possibilities for integrating information flow will be examined. The final report w ...

  7. Anaerobic Production of biohydrogen from food and Agricultural waste

    SBC: HANSEN ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENTAL, LLC            Topic: 811

    Despite its clean and green nature when utilized in fuel cells and other devices, most hydrogen is currently produced primarily from non-renewable sources, such as natural gas, oil, and coal. Anaerobic digestion provides a potentially improved alternative to manufacturing hydrogen from petroleum and natural gas. Anaerobic digesters can produce hydrogen from inexpensive and renewable energy sources ...

  8. COMPONENTS OF PARASITIC WASP VENOMS USEFUL FOR CONTROL OF INSECT PESTS

    SBC: Natural Products Research,            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE A PHASE I PROGRAM TO EVALUATE THE INSECTICIDAL PROPERTIES AND COMPONENTS OF CERTAIN PARASITIC WASP VENOMS. MOST INSECTS, INCLUDING MOST IMPORTANT CROP PESTS. ARE ATTACKED BY ONE OR MORE SPECIES OF PARASITIC WASPS. THE VENOMS OF PARASITIC WASPS ARE KNOWN TO HAVE A WIDE RANGE OF EFFECTS ON THEIR HOSTS, INCLUDING PARALYSIS, GROWTH REGULATION, AND SUPPRESSION OF THE IMMUNE SYSTEM. THE BASE ...

  9. COMPUTATIONAL ANALYSIS OF VENTILATION SYSTEMS FOR LIVESTOCK BUILDINGS

    SBC: INNOVATIVE RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE ENVIRONMENT SURROUNDING CONFINED ANIMALS DIRECTLY AFFECTS THE PRODUCTIVITY OF THE LIVESTOCKINDUSTRY. A GOOD VENTILATION SYSTEM, WHICH CONTROLS THIS ENVIRONMENT, IS ESSENTIAL FOR MANTAINING THE HEALTH AND WELFARE OF ANIMALS AND WORKERS IN THE LIVESTOCK BUILDINGS. HOWEVER, THE DESIGN AND MANAGEMENT OF SUCH A SYSTEM IS A COMPLICATED PROCESS. IT INVOLVES OPTIMIZATION OF VARIOUS GOVERNING PARAMETER ...

  10. COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY TO EVALUATE AIRCRAFT VORTEX WAKE INTENSITY

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: N/A

    THERE DOES NOT EXIST TODAY A UNIFIED MEANS OF EVALUATING THE VORTEX INTENSITY BEHIND COMMERCIAL JET LINERS PRIOR TO PROTOTYPE DEVELOPMENT AND TESTING AT FULLSCALE. OVER THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS, DATA AND ANALYTICAL DEVELOPMENTS HAVE PROVIDED MUCH ADDITIONAL TECHNOLOGY WHICH MAY MAKE POSSIBLE THE PREDICTION OF WAKE INTENSITY AND DECAY FROM FIRST PRINCIPLES. THE OBJECT OF THIS INVESTIGATION IS TO DEMO ...
