  4. IMPROVEMENT OF AIR VOID ANALYSIS OF FRESH CONCRETE

    SBC: Technical Innovations            Topic: N/A

    WE WILL DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF IMPROVED METHODS FOR DETERMING AIR CONTENT IN FRESH CONCRETE. WE EXPECT THAT A STUDY OF VOLUME CHANGE WITH VARYING PRESSURE AND VACUUM WILL LEAD TO A METHOD THAT WILL INDICATE BOTH AIR CONTENT AND VOID SIZE, AND YIELD AIR CONTENTS THAT T ARE UNAFFECTED BY THE NONTHEORETICAL COMPRESSIBILITY OF SMALL VOIDS. WE WILL DETERMINE THE FEACIBILITY OF SIMPLER METHODS OF ...

  9. INPUT AND OUTPUT MECHANISMS AND DEVICES

    SBC: Stafftec            Topic: N/A

    A SIX MONTH EFFORT IS PROPOSED TO DEVELOP A 2-CHANNEL ELECTROMYOGRAM (EMG) ADAPTIVE-FIRMWARE CARD SYSTEM FOR IBM AND IBM COMPATIBLE COMPUTERS. THE ADAPTIVE-FIRMWARE CARD SYSTEM WILL PROVIDE KEYBOARD INPUT THAT IS CONTROLLED BY EMG SIGNALS. THE SYSTEM IS DESIGNED FOR DISABLED INDIVIDUALS WHO CAN NOT USE STANDARD KEYBOARDS IN THEIR NORMAL FASHION. THE SYSTEM WILL BE "TRANSPARENT" TO THE COMPUTER AND ...
