  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 HIGH RANGE PARTICLE VELOCITY TRANSDUCER DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS AN ESTABLISHED NEED FOR A SIMPLE ROBUST TRANSDUCER TO MEASURE PARTICLE VELOCITY IN SEVERE BLAST AND SHOCK ENVIRONMENTS SUCH AS NUCLEAR AND HIGH EXPLOSIVE TESTS. A GAGE CONCEPT IS PROPOSED FOR DEVELOPMENT, BASED ON THE PROVEN MEASUREMENT PRINCIPLES USED IN THE HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL DX GAGE, BUT RECONFIGURED MECHANICALLY AND ELECTRICALLY TO WITHSTAND THE HARSH SHOCK ENVIRONMENTS. THE CONCEPT RE ...

  4. A NOVEL FIELD PROGRAMMABLE GATE ARRAY FOR SPACE APPLICATIONS

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Mission Research Corporation proposes the development of a unique FPGA (field programmable gate array) for applications in space and other military and civilian environments requiring the versatility of reconfigurability with retention of the configuration in an unpowered state. The FPGA will be capable of being configured once and retaining that configuration for a minimum of 10 years even with ...

  5. A PRACTICAL METHOD TO DETERMINE VERTICAL HYDRAULIC CONDUCTIVITY IN LOW-PERMEABLE SOIL

    SBC: Daniel B. Stephens & Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    VERTICAL SATURATED HYDRAULIC CONDUCTIVITY OF SOIL ABOVE A DEEP WATER TABLE IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT CHARACTERISTICS GOVERNING FLOW AND TRANSPORT. THIS PARAMETER IS USED IN WATER BALANCE STUDIES OF CROP PRODUCTION, IRRIGATION AND DRAINAGE SYSTEM DESIGN, RANGELANDAND FOREST WATERSHED MANAGEMENT, SOIL CONTAMINATION ASSESSMENTS, AND REMEDIAL ACTION DESIGN. THE CURRENT METHODS EITHER REQUIRE ONE TO ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. AN EXPERIMENT TO TEST THE MULTI-PHASE EFFECTIVE STRESS MODEL FOR CRATER/EJECTA CALCULATION

    SBC: SCIENCE & ENGINEERING ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase II 1992 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
  8. An Improved Plasma Opening Switch for DECADE

    SBC: NumerEx            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT ATTEMPTS TO USE THE PLASMA OPENING SWITCH (POS) FOR DECADE HAVE NOT YET BEEN ENTIRELY SUCCESSFUL DUE TO THE APPARENT INABILITY OF THE SWITCH TO OPEN EFFICIENTLY TO A HIGH-IMPEDENCE LOAD. RESEARCH DIRECTED TOWARD IMPROVING THE PERFORMANCE OF THE POS IN THE LONG-CONDUCTION TIME REGIME HAS BEEN FRUSTRATED BY THE INABILITY OF COMPUTATIONAL TOOLS TO OPERATE IN THE PARAMETER REGIMES OF INTEREST ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. BIAXIAL INTERFACE STRESS TRANSDUCER FOR HIGH OVERPRESSURES- DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DEFINITION OF THE STRUCTURE-MEDIA INTERACTION (SMI) LOADS ON A BURIED STRUCTURE IS ONE OF THE LARGEST SOURCES OF UNCERTAINTY IN ANALYZING THE SURVIVABILITY OF STRATEGIC STRUCTURES. ADVANCEMENT OF THE STATEOF-THE-ART IN THE MODELING OF SMI BEHAVIOR IS HAMPERED BY A LIMITED DATA BASE WHICH IS CONFINED TO OVERPRESSURES MUCH SMALLER THAN THOSE CURRENTLY OF INTEREST. THIS EFFORT PROPOSES TO DEVELOP AND ...
