  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. Computation of Surface Pressure Fluctuations

    SBC: Aerochem Research            Topic: N/A

    The excitation of structural vibrations by turbulent boundary layer surface pressure fluctuations is an important problem in underwater acoustics. A capability for accurately characterizing these fluctuations, especially the low wavenumber components of the spectrum, is needed to determine the effect of the pressure fluctuations on the excitation of structural vibrations. This capability may also ...

  6. Extremely Lighweight Hydrogen Fuel Cells

    SBC: Af Sammer Corp.            Topic: N/A

    The proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cell is being considered as power source for a variety of applications (1-4). Gravimetric and volumetric energy density, life cycle costs, ease and safety of operation are major considerations which may favor a PEM fuel cell power source over batteries. The proposed PEM fuel cell power source relies on an assembly of series connected cells arranged on boar ...

  7. Corrosion Prevention Coatings Based on Soluble Conducting Polymers

    SBC: Ashwin-Ushas Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The use of metal/semiconductor (M/SC) interfaces, in the form of SC coatings on metal, is a new anti-corrosion technology based on creating an electronic barrier, through an intrinsic electric field, to the transfer of electrons from a metal substrate to oxidizing species such as oxygen in the environment. The present work seeks to implement this technology with new, soluble, semiconducting organ ...

  9. ALL BACK CONTACT ULTRA-THIN GaAs SOLAR CELL WITH ZERO GRID OBSCURATION

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AstroPower proposes to develop a lightweight, high performance, ultra-thin electrostatically bonded GaAs solar cell with an all back contact, zero-grid obscuration structure. The unique design incorporates light trapping, adhesiveless cover slide bonding, and eliminates grid shading. This innovation will increase efficiency and specific power due to the higer open circuit voltage and short circuit ...
