  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  5. 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. Refrigeration System with Integrated Heat Exchanger

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA08049

    The Airborne Laser (ABL) program has significant cooling requirements that until present can only be addressed by mechanical refrigeration systems. These include cooling of the various high powered solid state lasers currently used on the ABL for tracking and ranging as well as standby cooling for the basic hydrogen peroxide (BHP) loops on the Chemical Oxygen Iodine Laser (COIL). The proposed inte ...

  7. IM Modeling/Simulation Tool for KEI Dynamic/Thermal Loads Associated with Stage Separation

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: MDA06041

    Intense dynamic and thermal loads will occur during stage-separation events that are of major concern from both operational and safety viewpoints. The insensitive-munitions (IM) stimuli and thermal/dynamic response associated with such events has received very little attention, yet this is of major concern for the KEI vehicle undergoing Stage 1 to Stage 2 separation. The KEI event is at lower alti ...
