  1. Concrete Environmental Monitoring Sensor

    SBC: Advanced Design Consulting USA, Inc.            Topic: 07FH3

    With infrastructure costs escalating it is becoming essential to monitor the health of concrete structures so that timely maintenance can maximize their useful lives. This SBIR will demonstrate the feasibility of using a passive sensor, embedded within concrete, to measure mositure, temperature, pH and concentrations of chlorides. It will provide critical data for evaluating concrete performance s ...

  2. Pedestrain Exposure Measurement Technology Development

    SBC: CALSPAN CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Calspan Corporation, located in Buffalo, NY is proposing the research and development of the technology and methodolgy that can be used to accurately measure pedestrian exposure. Existing technologies/methodologies will be analyzed, and a technology/methodolgy that focuses on an individual pedestrian's walking history will be specified. Only technologies that are small, lightweight, reliable, an ...

  3. MAGNETIC SHIELDING OF LSM AND EDS MODULES

    SBC: Intermagnetics General Corp            Topic: N/A

    MAGNETIC LEVITATION (MAGLEV) TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS DEPEND ON MAGNETS OF INTENSE FLUX DENSITITES FOR PROPULSION, LEVITATION AND GUIDANCE. THERE ARE SOME CONCERNS REGARDING POSSIBLE PHYSIOLOGICAL, LEVITATION AND GUIDANCE. THERE ARE SOME CONCERNS REGARDING POSSIBLE PHYSIOLOGICAL DAMAGE TO HUMAN BEINGS EXPOSED TO HIGH MAGNETIC FIELDS. CONSEQUENTLY, THE ABILITY TO SHIELD MAGLEV MAGNET FIELSD FROM PASS ...

  4. AUTOMATED RAIL-BASED WHEEL GAUGE

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ELECTRONIC MACHINES CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    INCREASED LOADS, HIGHER SPEEDS, AND A MORE EFFICIENT USE OF THE NATION'S FLEET OF LOCOMOTIVES AND FREIGHT CARS IS PUTTING INCREASED STRESS ON RAILROAD WHEELS. ALSO, A REDUCED WORKFORCE COMBINED WITH MORE RESTRICTED SIGHT LINES AND FEWER OPPORTUNITIES FOR WHEEL INSPECTION ARE REDUCING THE QUALITY OF THE INSPECTIONS THAT DO TAKE PLACE. MANY RAILROADS HAVE RESPONDED BY DEVELOPING OR PURCHASING PRODUC ...

  5. PDA-Based Portable Data Collection System for Commercial Vehicle Inspection

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ELECTRONIC MACHINES CORPORATION            Topic: 02FM1

    More than 1,300,000 Level 1 commercial vehicle inspections - a safety-critical, time-consuming, often difficult and painstaking process, especially as regards the brake inspection component -- are performed every year in the United States, under all sorts of weather and lighting conditions. The current technology used adds to the complexity and error potential inherent in this important task. In ...

  6. Crack Arrest and Structural Repair of High Strength Steel Piping by In-Situ Sleeving of Nanostructural Materials

    SBC: Integran Technologies U.S.A. Inc.            Topic: 07PH1

    This proposal describes the application of a mature nanotechnology-based crack arrest / structural repair technology as a novel crack arrestor tool for high-strength pipelines. The crack arrestor would comprise a thin layer or sleeve of electrodeposited nanocrystalline material applied to the outside of the pipe either in the coating mill during fabrication or in-field during or following constru ...

  7. Structural Repair of Steel Piping by In-Situ Sleeving of Nanostructured Materials

    SBC: Integran Technologies U.S.A. Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal describes the application of a mature nanotechnology-based crack arrest/structural repair technology as a novel in-field pipeline repair tool. The repair would be comprised of a thin layer or sleeve of electrodeposited nancrystalline material applied to the damaged region of the pipe in order to utilize the "crack filling" characteristic of the process. The concept proposed has alr ...

  8. Compact Laser Shearography System for Crack Detection

    SBC: Laser Technology Inc.            Topic: 05FH1

    Laser Technology Inc. (LTI) proposes a Phase II SBIR research project to further develop a Compact Shearography System, Analysis Method and Software for micro-crack detection in concrete. There is an urgent need to detect and characterize fine cracks in concrete that form because of various damage mechanisms including alkali-silicate reaction, delayed ettringite formation or frost damage. Fine s ...

  9. Microscopic Traffic Flow Simulation Models- An Open Source Approach

    SBC: New Global Systems for Intelligent Transportation Management            Topic: 081FH5

    In the Open-source microscopic traffic simulation models project, a component based software framework is proposed to re-engineer CORISM data struture and CORISM interface. Under the architecture combing the innovative framework and the legacy CORISM, prototype of the open source traffic flow simulation models will be developed and demonstrated in the Phase I. In addition, areas identified by th ...

  10. HYBRID POLYMERIC GLAZING MATERIALS

    SBC: Rolltrusion Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A NEW PROCESS IS PROPOSED FOR THE APPLICATION OF POLYMERIC MATERIALS FOR AUTOMOTIVE WINDOWS. SEMI-CRYSTALLINE POLYMERIC MATERIALS CAN BE RENDERED CLEAR THROUGH 3-D ORIENTATION VIA SOLID STATE PROCESSING. APPLYING THIS TECHNOLOGY TO A HYBRID POLYMER STRUCTURE CAN RESULT IN CHEMICALLY RESISTANT, MECHANICALLY STRONG, OPTICALLY CLEAR AND ECONOMICALLY VIABLE PLASTIC WINDOWS FOR GROUND TRANSPORTATION.
