    SBC: Genex Systems LLC            Topic: 20FH3

    Most research on scour assessment has traditionally focused on developing best-fit or envelope equations to estimate the maximum scour depths from physical experiments in a laboratory environment. However, obtaining an accurate estimate is always a challenge due to numerous uncertainties in the actual riverine or coastal environment. With advances in new surveying technologies and growing computat ...

  3. Modular Lightweight Composite Deck


    A newly proposed combination of high-strength weathering steel sheet with Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC) to leverage the benefits of both emerging technologies. The combined system offers benefits over traditional orthotropic steel decks and existing concrete or UHPC deck solutions, both of which offer high up-front costs in fabrication or forming. The resulting composite structure provide ...

  6. Reverse Engineering, Manufacturing, and SAR for NSN 5998-01-276-2156

    SBC: TURNAROUND FACTOR INC            Topic: DLA201001

    TAF proposes to Reverse Engineer the McNab Circuit Card Assembly, NSN identified by DLA, 5998-01-276-2156, using available adjacent and salvaged parts. TAF will create a Technical Data Package (TDP), manufacture and test prototypes, develop a Source Approval Request package, and ultimately deliver 5-10 working sample parts for Source Approval. The NSN is a critical Circuit Card Assembly — more c ...

  9. Developing Regional GIC Hazard Tools for Power Utility Planning and Operations

    SBC: COMPUTATIONAL PHYSICS, INC.            Topic: 9302

    Geomagnetically induced current (GIC) hazard is a recognized threat to the United States power system. Federal models to support hazard specification and prediction for critical infrastructure are at an advanced state, including models of space weather, the Earth’s conductive structure, and regional geoelectric field. We propose to use existing NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center (NOAA-SWPC) mo ...
