  1. 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 ...

  2. Step Frequency Ground Penetrating Radar for Location and Evaluation of In-Roadway Sensors

    SBC: STARODUB INC            Topic: 06FH2

    A nondestructive evaluation method is proposed for imaging in-roadway sensors, anticipated to allow them to be located and evaluated in-situ. The techniques uses innovative step frequency GPR hardware together with new data collection and data processing methods to provide high-resolution images of in-roadway sensor features. Recent work by the proposed research team has already demonstrated im ...

  3. Low Cost Transverse Rail Defect Detector

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: 02FR1

    Development of the basic EMAT based transverse rail defect detector has progressed toward finished form, as envisioned in the original solicitation. This modification is intended to produce a demonstratable version of a 2-rail detection system with automated signal interpertation. The objectives of this work are to: a. Further develop the system into a functioning 2-rail detection system, as ori ...

  6. Digital Waveform-based System for AE Measurement for NDT

    SBC: Dvp, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this project is to develop a multi-channel, real-time data acquisition, storage, and analysis system for acoustic emissions (AE). The proposed digital recorder will provide 12 independent channels of input with each channel supporting acquisition, storage, and processing of up to 20,000 AE events at a 10 MHz sampling rate. Our architectural approach will exploit the inherent parallel ...

  7. Feasibility of and Techniques for CORSIM Model Computer-Based Training

    SBC: Pacific Animated Imaging            Topic: N/A

    The Federal Highway Administration has developed a suite of traffic simulation models to assist state, local, and consulting engineers to plan roads and traffic control improvements. Training for the models has traditionally been instructor-led, costly (particularly from the state and local government perspective), and limited in accessibility (subject to availability of instructors). With CORSI ...

  8. Instrumented Anchor Pin for Heavy Truck Brake

    SBC: Stratcom International Llc            Topic: N/A

    The bonded resistance strain gage has made possible a varety of force sensing transducers, commonly known as "load cells." Widely used types of load cells include the column, the bending beam, the ring, the circular plat and the shear web. To instrument the anchor pins used in heavy truck air braking systems, STRAINSERT will utilize proven research and evaluation techniques implemented during th ...

  9. Innovative Energy Absorbing Composite Utility Poles

    SBC: TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Utility poles present a serious roadside hazard due to the large number of poles located in close proximity to the roadways and the unforgiving nature of existing pole designs. Breakaway wooden utility poles have been developed over the past twenty years in an effort to improve utility pole safety, but these designs have not gained widespread acceptance. In order to realize safer utility poles w ...
