  1. Passive Acoustic Metamaterial Proppants for Advanced Fracture Diagnostics

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: 17b

    Ineffective fracture design and practices in unconventional oil and natural gas wells present environmental risks and reduce the production efficiency of hydraulic fracturing, largely due to the inability to measure propped fracture geometry and behavior using current proppants and available tools. In this project, a unique proppant detection technology based on acoustic metamaterials is being dev ...

  2. A Rapid Damage Assessment System Using Machine Vision to Detect Damage to Utility Grid Infrastructure

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: 05b

    Power outages from natural disasters not only result in billions of dollars of losses, associated health and safety impacts can result in significant loss of life. After a disaster, damage assessments of electrical grid infrastructure are critical for developing a strategy for power restoration including the optimal allocation of resources. Despite improvements, the damage assessment process is st ...

  3. Production of Uranium from Seawater Using a Novel Polymer Adsorbent- Process Development and Cost Analysis

    SBC: LCW Supercritical Technologies Corporation            Topic: 32i

    Seawater contains about 3 parts per billion of uranium. With a total ocean volume of approximately 1.3109 km3, there is at least 4.5 billion tons of uranium in seawater which is about 1000 times the amount of uranium known to exist in terrestrial ores. Mining uranium from seawater is economically feasibility if an efficient, reusable and low-cost adsorbent could be developed. In the past year, ...

  7. Controlled-porosity ceramic materials for high temperature downhole applications

    SBC: Olympic Research, Inc.            Topic: 16a

    Development of high performance downhole components and materials is necessary to enable geothermal exploration and production capabilities in high pressure and high temperature applications. Conventional well materials are poorly suited for corrosive environments. Steel casing, screens, and other wellbore components are susceptible to corrosion in extreme geothermal conditions. An ideal replaceme ...

  10. AlphaBear2

    SBC: Spry Fox LLC            Topic: EDIES17R0006

    This project team will fully develop and test AlphaBear 2, a vocabulary learning game for grade 4 to 7 students. Vocabulary is a prerequisite for academic success, as it is linked to stronger performance across academic subjects and improved reading comprehension. It is more difficult for students to participate in educational activities without understanding the key vocabulary associated with tha ...
