  1. Advanced Instrumentation for Non-Nulling Stack Velocity Testing

    SBC: AIRFLOW SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: None

    Industrial facilities, manufacturing plants, and electric power plants that burn fossil fuels exhaust the combustion products to atmosphere through their smokestacks. Stack pollutant emissions are quantified using manual testing methods developed in the 1960s, which are prone to error if non-axial flow exists in a stack.Recently, NIST has been working on an improved technique of performing 3D flow ...

  2. Development of a Neutron-based Nondestructive Test Method for Concrete Petrography and Chemical Analysis

    SBC: TOURNEY CONSULTING GROUP, LLC            Topic: None

    To evaluate the technical feasibility of prompt gamma neutron activation (PGAA) as an alternative to a set of standard destructive tests of concrete petrography including aggregate type, water/cement ratio, aggregate/binder ratio, density, chloride content and chloride bulk diffusion constant; and to determine the specifications for the design of a dedicated commercial laboratory-based PGAA facili ...

  3. Manufacturing Data Compiler for Visualization Based on Engineering-Driven Machine Learning

    SBC: OG Technologies, Inc.            Topic: NA

    There has been substantial development in data analytics. However, the complex mathematical formulation of “big data analytics” is difficult to populate in general manufacturing plants. There is a need for an SPC-like tool to enable the acceptance of the advanced data analytics and its visualization. The MD Compiler, a tool to bridge the gap between data available and the information demanded ...

  4. Self-Configuring Residential Conditioned Air Zoning System for Low Energy Homes

    SBC: Steven Winter Associates, Inc.            Topic: NA

    Steven Winter Associates, Inc. (SWA) hereby proposes to undertake research to develop a self-configuring residential conditioned air zoning system for low load energy homes. The Phase I prototype will feature zone nodes and a master controller. The zone nodes will measure and wirelessly report environmental conditions to the central controller, and modulate a damper based on commands received from ...

  5. Dual Plane 3D Compton Scattering Imager with Pixelated CZT Detectors for 1-10MeV Gamma Ray

    SBC: H3D            Topic: NA

    A dual plane Compton imager prototype system with large volume pixelated CZT detectors will be built for spectrally resolved MeV gamma ray tomographic applications. These two planes will be operated at independent clocks and they will be synchronized via a common periodical pulse. The common periodical pulse is self-generated so it does not rely on external pulse generator. Each detector will be c ...

  6. Predictive Modeling Tools for Metal-Based Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: 3DSIM LLC            Topic: 9010673R

    3DSIM will provide a solution to additive manufacturing’s lack of efficient, composable physics-based computational frameworks to predict quality and performance for arbitrary geometry, orientation, location and process parameter combinations. A new set of composable computational tools capable of accurately predicting the geometrical accuracy, residual stress and microstructure of the parts mad ...

  7. Anion Exchange Resins for Chirality-based Separation of Single-wall Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: Sepax Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 9060663R

    Single chirality of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) is critical for their superb mechanical, thermal, optical and electronic properties. All known methods for producing nanotubes give mixtures of tubes with different chiralities. Physical separation of SWCNT by chirality is thus an enabling step for many potential applications and fundamental studies. The existing anion exchange resins are ...

  8. An Integrated Decision Support Framework for Sustainability CAE

    SBC: BIMCON Inc.            Topic: 9050273R

    The objective of this proposal is to establish the feasibility of developing an integrated decision support framework that transforms the current time-consuming and reactive (post completion of final design) sustainability assessment into a proactive CAE approach that enables the ability to revise designs based on performance against selected sustainability targets in the product design process, i ...

  9. Decision Support Tools for Sustainable Manufacturing

    SBC: BIMCON Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this proposal is to establish the feasibility of developing an integrated decision support tool that transforms the current time-consuming and reactive (post-design) sustainability assessment into a real-time, proactive approach available in the early phases of product design. This tool, called Sustainability Integrated into Early Design (SIED), will define and capture lifecycle-w ...

  10. Micro-Scale Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer

    SBC: Aerophysics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research comprises design, analysis, and ultimate fabrication and operation of a microfabricated array of quadrupole mass spectrometers (QMS). The design capitalizes on recent advances in micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) and molecular-beam-epitaxy (MBE) technology so that the device can be mass-produced on a chip. In addition to analyzing a single element QMS in Phase 1, invest ...
