  1. Functional Gradient Materials

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Functional gradient materials (FGMs) have a microstructurally graded transition in composition (e.g. zirconia to a nickel based superalloy). The graded transition eliminates problems associated with a discrete interface such as poor mechanical strength and transport losses. They are being actively pursued by the engineering community, particularly in Japan, as a means of taking advantage of two di ...

  2. Aqueous Biopolymers for Ceramic Solid Freeform Fabrication

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed program is to develop the use of aqueous biopolymers for the solid freeform fabrication of ceramic components. It will be a collaborative effort between ACR and Battelle PNL. PNL has expertise in colloidal ceramic processing and experience on utilizing biopolymers in ceramic slurries. ACR has already developed extensive software and hardware capability for solid freeform fabricatio ...

  4. PRETENSIONING DEVICE DESIGN FOR CRASH PROTECTION

    SBC: Advanced Structures Technology            Topic: N/A

    THE CURRENT FIVE-POINT MILITARY AVIATION RESTRAINT SYSTEM (FOR NON-EJECTION CREW SEATS) WHEN PROPERLY USED (I.E., TIGHTLY ADJUSTED), CAN PROVIDE GOOD OCCUPANT CRASH PROTECTION. THE RESTRAINT SYSTEMS ALSO INCLUDE AN INERTIAL REEL ON THE SEAT BACK WHICH IS DESIGNED TO LOCK THE SHOULD STRAPS AT THE ONSET OF A CRASH, IN THE SAME MANNER THAT THE COMMON AUTOMOBILE SEAT BELT INERTIAL REEL LOCKS WHEN JERK ...

  5. High-Performance, Resonant Optical Cavity Light-Emitting Diodes

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The Phase I Project will develop a comprehensive model to evaluate and optimize state-of-the-art light-emitting diodes for optical memories, optical computing, and fiber or free-space photonic interconnects. The innovation is the development of resonant optical cavity LEDs and a proprietary low-cost epitaxy technology for their fabrication. A unified approach to the design of LEDs with resonant op ...

  6. Embedded UV Combustion Sensor

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AstroPower proposes to develop gallium phosphide (GaP) ultraviolet (UV) sensors for engine combustion control. The UV spectra from the free radial combustion components correlates with combustion effectivity in terms of predetonation, and provides a real time basis for central control of excess air ratio, internal combustion temperatures, and other fuel injector parameters. A system for the engine ...

  9. An Advanced Ceramic Heat Recuperator for Vehicular Application

    SBC: CERONE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    An advanced ceramic heat recuperator (ACHR) incorporates thin corrugated,d triangular-shaped flow channels made of non-oxide ceramics with high thermal conductivity and high fracture toughness. A counterflow arrangement together with the unique design of the flow channels makes the ACHR highly efficient, highly reliable and compact. A key processing innovation is also made for fabrication of the ...

  10. Oxygen Enriching Membranes for Advanced Marine Internal Combustion Engines

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Computer and engine studies demonstrated a 100% increase in diesel engine power with the use of 31% oxygen enriched air (OEA) versus standard 21% oxygen air. Additional benefits from OEA include: (1) improved fuel efficiency, (2) compatible with lower grade (volatility) fuels, (3) reduced CO and hydrocarbon emissions, (4) enhanced lean burn capability, (5) smoother less noisy operation, (6) better ...
