  1. Development of an Acoustic Method for Rapid Assessment of Air Void System in Fresh Concrete

    SBC: DYNAFLOW, INC            Topic: 171FH2

    Air parameters such as specific surface (SS) and spacing factor (SF) are essential in evaluating Freeze-Thaw (F-T) durability in fresh concrete. Currently there is no method or device that can accurately meet such requirements. We propose to develop an acoustic air void measurement system that can be used in the field to measure in near real time air void distributions in fresh concrete. The propo ...

  2. Basalt Fiber Reinforced Polymer for Railway Wood Ties Remanufacturing (BFRP-WTR)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 171FR1

    The service life of the wood ties has been diminishing with increased axle loads with higher rail car speeds and frequencies. The depletion of wood and creosote induced contamination are of great environmental concerns. It is of a substantial interest to develop an effective recycling/remanufacturing methodology for creosote-treated wood ties. A composite wood tie design is proposed here, with use ...

  3. Low Ground Clearance Vehicle Detection and Warning System

    SBC: Advanced Technology And Research Corporation            Topic: 131FR1

    Highway-rail grade crossings, at which there is an abrupt change in the level of the road surface as it crosses the tracks, present a severe hang-up risk to vehicles with low ground clearance. In Phase I and II, ATR developed a conceptual design for a Low Ground Clearance Vehicle Detection System (LGCVDS) to actively prevent such accidents. The LGCVDS is able to use a priori crossing profile data ...

  4. 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 ...

  6. Feasibility of an ultrasonic based instrument for assessing in-situ pipeline coatings

    SBC: Fbs, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    FBS, Inc. proposes to establish the feasibility of an ultrasonically based device for in-situ evaluation of pipeline coatings and for the archiving of coating properties. Based on our experience gained through DOT and EPRI sponsored work on long range ultrasonics, buried pipes, and tar coated pipes we recognize the need for coating characterization not only as an important factor for inspection d ...

  7. In-line Nondestructive Inspection of Mechanical Defects in Pipelines with Shear Horizonital Wave EMAT

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Intelligent Automation, Inc. and Oak Ridge National Lab is proposing a novel and integrated approach to inspect mechanical damages in the pipelines with or without coatings. It extends our successful work in a previous phase 1 project that combines the state of the art Shear Horizontal wave signal processing and pattern classification techniques, to detect and characterize the mechanical dents in ...

  8. Compact Laser Shearography System for Crack Detection

    SBC: Laser Technology Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Laser Technology Inc. has demonstrated for the first time, the detection of non-visible cracks of less than 10 microns soon after casting of high performance concrete test prisms. Fine cracks may be associated with the two leading causes of concrete deterioration, delayed ettringite formation and alkali-silica reaction. Laser Technology is a leading developer, manufacturere and provider of laser ...
