  1. LABORATORY STUDY OF EXTENSION FAILURE IN NEVADA TEST SITE TUFFS

    SBC: Terra Tek Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CALCULATED GROUND MOTION FROM NUCLEAR EXPLOSIONS PREDICT THAT AT LOCATIONS NEAR THE CAVITY THE ROCK FAILURE SURFACE WILL BE ENCOUNTERED IN EXTENSION DURING LATER STAGES OF UNLOAD. THE RESULTING HOOP FRACTURES WILL PRODUCE A FAILED ROCK ZONE SURROUNDING THE CAVITY. HIGH PRESSURE CAVITY GASES COULD INITIATE A HYDRAULIC FRACTURE THROUGH THE FRACTURE ROCK WHICH, UNDER THE WORST CONDITION, WOULD LEAD T ...

  2. 220 Watt, Man-Portable, Chemical Hydride Based Fuel Cell System for Arms Control Applications

    SBC: TRULITE TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    "Now that reliable, robust, commercial proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs) are available, the problem has shifted to fuel storage. PEMFCs function most efficiently (>50%) when supplied with pure hydrogen. Unfortunately, storing large quantitiesof hydrogen in a compact, lightweight form has proven to be very difficult. Most of the hydrogen storage methods that have been developed for fu ...

  3. Production of Pelleted Fungal Inocula for Use in Fungal-Based Remediation of Contaminated Soil

    SBC: EarthFax Development Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Fungal inocula are an important component of a soil bioaugmentation technology that relies on the pollutant-degrading abilities of white-rot wood decay (Bioremedy) fungi. Current inoculum production techniques are expensive and cumbersome. Preliminary work on a less expensive, technically superior inoculum formulation based on a pelleted lignocellulosic-based substrate covered with an active mycel ...

  5. IMPACT OF CARBON DIOXIDE ENRICHMENT ON PLANT PRODUCTION IN AN ACCLIMATRON PROPAGATION SYSTEM

    SBC: SOUTHERN SUN BIOSYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Not Available The AcclimatronTM plant propagation technology patented by Clemson University minimizes the shock of transfer of plant tissue cultures from heterotrophic growth in the laboratory to photoautotrophic growth in natural sunlight. Southern Son Propagation Systems, Inc. (SoSun) has acquired exclusive license from Clemson University to manufacture AcclimatronTM Systems and to market them b ...

  6. Development of High Density Rotifer Mass Culture Using Micro Algae Pastes

    SBC: Southland Fisheries Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Not Available A major constraint in finfish larviculture has been the availability of large numbers of quality live food organisms at economically attractive prices. This project proposes means and methods to develop biotechniques necessary for high density rotifer biomass cultures using microalgae pastes. Recent research in husbandry, manipulation, maturation and spawning of a wide variety of fin ...

  7. Aerated Submerged BioFilm (ASBF) for Wastewater Treatment Lagoon Enhancement

    SBC: Tero Consulting            Topic: N/A

    Wastewater treatment lagoons are the most widespread form of treatment in the United States for animal operations and rural domestic sewage. Treatment lagoons can be effective at removing BOD. They are not effective at reducing ammonia levels. Animal operations with recycled water from lagoons can experience high levels of ammonia in the water. This can result in severe odor problems and potential ...
