  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. Ultra Portable Ride Quality Meter

    SBC: DFUZION, INC.            Topic: 06FR3

    The Ultra Portable Ride Quality Meter (UPRQM) is a cost-effective, flexible tool that can evolve (with minimal effort) as new GPS and accelerometer devices become commercially available. Each generation of these sensor devices is more responsive, more sensitive, and more accurate than the last generation. The time between generations is also decreasing such that accelerometer and GPS technology ...

  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 ...

  5. Water Quality Monitoring Device

    SBC: Gky And Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The research is to develop a sheet flow sampler to collect highway washoff and to operate in a highway roadside environment. The proposed sampler is expendable, simple, and cost effective. It will collect a predetermined depth of runoff (most commonly the first 1/2 inch of "first flush"), store it, and be removed and replaced by maintenance workers following rain events. The sampler will be its ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Feasibility Study of an Internet-Based GUI for Highway Capacity Software

    SBC: Viggen Corp.on            Topic: N/A

    In this proposal, the Viggen Project Team presents an elegant approach to developing a truly portable Graphical User Interface (GUI) for the Highway Capacity Software (HCS). Our approach is based on the emerging Internet-driven computing technology and will be totally platform-independent. The prototype will be developed using a programming language called Java and users will be able to execute ...
