  3. WIND AND ENERGY BUDGET MEASUREMENT SYSTEM FOR DESERT TERRAIN

    SBC: American Minority            Topic: N/A

    A MICROCLIMATOLOGICAL WEATHER STATION DESIGN IS PROPOSED WHICH INCORPORATES RESEARCH QUALITY INSTRUMENTS CAPABLE OF MEASURING HEAT FLUXES DIRECTLY. RECENT TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES HAVE ENABLED THESE INSTRUMENTS TO OPERATE IN REMOTE, LOW POWER, UNATTENDED APPLICATIONS. ULTRASONIC TECHNOLOGY IS USED TO MEASURE SENSIBLE AND LATENT HEAT FLUXES USING THE EDDY CORRELATION METHOD. THE WEATHER STATION IS DE ...

  4. VIBRATORY AGING AND STRESS RELIEF (VASR) FOR A7005 ALUMINUM WELDS

    SBC: Applied Fusion Technologies            Topic: N/A

    THE PRIMARY OBJECTIVE OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO DEVELOP A METHOD THAT WILL IMPROVE BOTH THE RELIABILITY AND PREDICTABILITY OF WELDING AGE HARDENING ALUMINUM ALLOYS. THIS MAY BE ACCOMPLISHED BY USING AN IMPROVED VASR (VIBRATORY AGING AND STRESS RELIEF) SYSTEM, SQUARE WAVE PULSED ARC WELDING, AND POSSIBLY A COMBINATION OF BOTH TECHNIQUES. VASR TECHNIQUES INCLUDE TESTING IN BOTH THE SUBRESONANT AND RESO ...

  7. HIGH SPEED ELECTRO-OPTIC IMAGE SHUTTER USING FERROELECTRIC LIQUID CRYSTALS

    SBC: Displaytech Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED WORK AIMS TO DEVELOP ELECTRO-OPTIC SHUTTERS THAT HAVE A UNIQUE COMBINATION OF OPERATING PROPERTIES RESULTING FROM THEIR USE OF FERROELECTRIC LIQUID CRYSTALS (FLCS). THE ELECTRO-OPTIC CHARACTERISTICS OF FLCS WOULD ALLOW THE SHUTTER FAST SWITCHING (20 MICROSECONDS) AT LOW DRIVE VOLTAGE (15 V) WITH VERY LITTLE ENERGY COMSUMPTION (5 MICROJOULES/SWITCHING). THE EMPHASIS OF THE EFFORT IS ON ...

  8. HIGH SPEED PERSONNEL PARACHUTE ENERGY ABSORBER

    SBC: Frost Engineering Development            Topic: N/A

    A SHORT-STROKE ENERGY ABSORBER CAN BE USED TO REDUCE PARACHUTE SNATCH FORCE AND THE ONSET RATE OF THE OPENING SHOCK. SUCH A DEVICE MUST OPERATE WITH THE DESIRED OPENING SHOCK FORCES AND BE NONELASTIC, LIGHT, SMALL, IN PARALLEL WITH THE RISERS, AND NOT RESULT IN ASYMMETRIC SUSPENSION AFTER PARACHUTE OPENING. ASSESSMENT OF THE DYNAMIC CHARACTERISTICS OF THE ENERGY ABSORBER WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED BY ME ...
