  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. 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 ...

  4. Sphingosine Kinase Inhibitors as Anti-Arthritis Agents

    SBC: Apogee Biotechnology Corporation            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Sphingolipids are being increasingly recognized as key mediators of inflammatory cascades of critical importance in multiple diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Most importantly, sphingosine 1-phosphate produced by sphingosine kinase (SK) mediates the effects of tumor necrosis factor-1 and interleukin-12, pro-inflammatory cytokines ...

  5. Sprayable Surgical Adhesive for Seroma Prevention

    SBC: COHERA MEDICAL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long-term goal of this project is to create a sprayable surgical adhesive which would satisfy the surgical need for a strong, easy-to-use adhesive to adhere planar flaps of tissue. This novel adhesive will reduce fl uid accumulation after surgery by eliminating dead space in the wound and maintaining tissues in position for natural healing to occur. Seroma ...

  7. CAD-CAM Technology for Diabetic Footwear

    SBC: DIAPEDIA, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Diabetes remains the leading cause of non-traumatic lower extremity amputations. Most amputations are preceded by a foot ulcer, so that successfully treating, or better still preventing, foot ulcers should reduce the n umber of diabetes related amputations. The majority of foot ulcers in diabetic patients are the result of loss of protective sensation (LOPS) s ...

  8. Biocompatible Coating for Pediatric Blood Oxygenators- Phase II

    SBC: ENSION Inc            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Many oxygenators clinically available for pediatric (and adult) extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) utilize heparin coatings such as Carmeda BioActive Surface on device surfaces, including the microporous hollow fibers, to improve biocompatibility. Despite application of these coatings, significant inflammatory and coagulation-related complications, as ...

  9. Web-based stroke education for patients and families

    SBC: Fox Learning Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Ischemic stroke is a major source of illness burden in the US. Stroke survivors are at high risk for recurrence and therefore they are an important group for secondary prevention. However, gaps in knowledge among stroke survivors, including inadequate knowledge of the early warning signs of stroke, inadequate understanding of the purpose and goals of rehabilit ...
