Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. TEST METHOD TO DETERMINE THE DEGREE OF ASPHALT STRIPPING FROM AGGREGATES

    SBC: Kelly/strazer Associates Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DAMAGE TO ASPHALT PAVEMENTS OWING TO STRIPPING OF ASPALT CEMENT FROM AGGREGATE IN THE PRESENCE OF WATER HAS PRODUCED SERIOUS DISTRESS, REDUCED PERFORMANCE, AND INCREASED MAINT NTENANCE FOR PAVEMENTS IN THE UNITED STATES, AS WELL AS OTHERAREAS IN THE WORLD. THE PHENOMENON OF STRIPPING HAS BEEN STUDIED BY MANY INVESTIGATORS DURING THE PAST 50 YEARS. THE THE HIGHWAY RESEARCH BOARD, IN JANUARY, 1971, ...

  2. LONGITUDINAL STRESS (FORCE) MEASUREMENT OF RAIL UNDER OPERATING CONDITIONS

    SBC: Magnasonics Inc            Topic: N/A

    IN 1982, A SPECIAL COMMITTEE OF THE NMAB ISSUED A REPORT ON THE NONDESTRUCTIVE METHODS THAT MIGHT BE USED TO MEASURE THELOGITUDINAL FORCE IN INSTALLED RAILS. IT SHOWED THAT THE ACOUSTO-ELASTIC EFFECT WHICH INFERS THE STRESS FROM MEASURE MENTS OF SMALL SHIFTS IN THE VELOCITY OF SOUND WAS PROMISINGBUT DIFFICULT TO IMPLEMENT BECAUSE VARIATIONS IN THE METALLURGICAL STRUCTURE OF THE METAL AND UNCERTAIN ...

  3. INFRARED ICE ACCRETION MEASUREMENT SYSTEM

    SBC: Sinnar Associates            Topic: N/A

    REMOTE RUNWAY SURFACE CONDITION SENSORS THAT COULD DETECT ICE ONSET AND MONITOR ITS RATE OF ACCRETION ON AIRPORT OPERATIONAL SURFACES WOULD ENHANCE THE RUNWAY SAFETY WHILE REDUCING AIRPORT EQUIPMENT, MANPOWER AND CHEMICAL COSTS. THROUGH ANALYSIS WE DEMONSTRATE HOW AN INFRARED RADIATION TRANSMISSION THROUGH ICE/WATER CAN BE USED TO DISTINGUISH ICE ACCRETION FROM WATER ACCUMULATION, MEASURE ICE ACCR ...

  4. ADHESIVE MATERIALS FOR SEALING CONDUCTORS AND LIGHT UNITS IN AIRPORT PAVEMENTS.

    SBC: Springborn Materials Science            Topic: N/A

    ADHESIVES CURRENTLYUSED ON AIRPORT PAVEMTNS FOR LIGHTING /ELECTRICAL INSTALLATIONS HAVE DIFICIENCIES, AND INNOVATIVE USE OF OTHER ADHESIVE COMPOUNDS, OR MATERIALS, THAT WOULD PROVIDE IMPROVED PALCEMENT QUALITIES, AND INCREASED ADHESIONCHARATERISTICS WITH ASPHALTIC MATERIALS IS NEEDED. THIS PROPOSED PROGRAM WOULD AID IN DEFINING THE PROBLEM QUANTITATIVELY, ESTABLISH PERFORMANCE CRITERIA FOR THE ADH ...

  5. DEVELOPMENT OF A SAFE STOPPING-DISTANCE DETECTOR

    SBC: Ssdd Research Corp            Topic: N/A

    SSDD RESEARCH CORPORATION PROPOSES THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW MICROCOMPUTER CONTROLLED SYSTEM INCORPORATING NOVEL AND UN UNIQUE MICROELECTRONIC DEVICES, THAT WILL ALERT THE DRIVER OF AN AUTOMOTIVE VEHICLE THAT ANOTHER VEHICLE OR LARGE OBJECT IN THE FORWARD PATH OF THE DIRVER'S VEHICLE POSES A COLLISION THREAT. IT IS IMPORTANT FOR THS SUCCESSSFUL MARKETING OF THIS DEVICE TO THE PUBLIC THAT THE DEVICE ...

  6. HAZARDOUS MATERIAL IDENTIFICATION IN NORMAL TRANSPORT AND INACCIDENTS USING ELECTRONIC REMOTE CHEMICAL IDENTIFICATION SYSTEM (ERCIS)

    SBC: Technology & Management System            Topic: N/A

    IN MANY TRANSPORTATION ACCIDENTS INVOLVING HAZARDOUS MATERIALS, EMERGENCY PERSONNEL ARE UNABLE TO IDENTIFY THE CHEMICALS INVOLVED WHETHER THE CHEMICALS ARE RELEASED OR NOTEVEN WHEN APPROPRIATE PAPERS OF HELP FROM THE SHIPPERS ARE AVAILABLE, PRECIOUS TIME IS LOST BEFORE PROPER IDENTI- IFICATION CAN BE MADE. THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED WORK ISTO DEVELOP A MICROPROCESSOR BASED CHEMICAL IDENTIFICATI ...

  7. LOCOMOTIVE ENGINEER ALERTOR DEVICE

    SBC: Tesa Design, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    INTEGRATION OF CONVENTIONAL LOCOMOTIVE CAB ALERTNESS/SAFETY SYSTEM WITH ULTRASONIC (AND OTHER) DEVICES AND MONITORED THROUGH AN ON BOARD MICROPROCESSOR. THE OBJECTIVE BEING A TAMPERPROOF, RELIABLE, INEXPENSIVE, AND EASILY INSTALLED MEANS OF MEASURING AND MAXIMIZING CREW ALERTNESS WITHOUT PHYSCAL DISCOMFORT. SURVEILANCE FREQUENCY AND VARIABLE MENU CAN BE LINKED TO RANDOM SELECTION AND TO PROGRAMMED ...

  8. EXPERT SYSTEMS APPLICATIONS FOR AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL: A FEASIBILITY ANALYSIS

    SBC: Ufa Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS RESEARCH FOCUSES ON DETERMINING THE FEASIBILITY OF UF USING EXPERT SYSTEMS TO SUPPORT (RATHER THAN REPLACE) HUMAN DECISION MAKERS. WE INTEND TO SHOW THE FEASIBILITY OF USING EXPERT SUPPORT SYSTEMS (ESS) FOR AIR TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS.THIS RESEARCH WILL CONCENTRATE ON THE INTELLIGENT MAN/ MACHINE INTERFACES FOR AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL AND WILL SHOW THEFEASIBILITY OF USING ESS FOR REMOTE MONITORING ...
