  1. NDT of Fracture Toughness for Pipeline Steels

    SBC: Fbs, Inc.            Topic: 180PH1

    Fracture toughness is the material parameter that, along with applied loading and flaw geometry, dictates the critical crack size, and therefore controls the flaw size that must be detected during inspections. A major challenge facing pipeline operators is that many pipelines are old, making their structural integrity uncertain, and that material pedigree of the pipeline steel is unknown. Therefor ...

  2. Automated parking-cruising detection and measurement using Bluetooth AVI Sensor network

    SBC: RAPID FLOW TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: 142FH2

    Searching for street parking, a behavior known as cruising for parking, leads to excess congestion and pollution. Many recent smart parking interventions have attempted to address this issue, but the problem of effectively detecting and measuring cruising remains largely unsolved. The goal of this work is to develop methods to detect and measure cruising for parking and its effects on congestion u ...
