  1. Locking Mechanism for Rotating Seats

    SBC: Kustom Seating Unlimited Inc. (KSU)            Topic: 07FR1

    Research is proposed to develop a locking mechanism for intercity (Amtrak) rotating seats that can be retro-fit to existing seats. Current intercity rail seats, according to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), present a safety hazard to the riding public. Post accident investigations show that passenger rail seats were found to have been uncontrollably rotated even though current se ...

  2. Microscopic Traffic Flow Simulation Models- An Open Source Approach

    SBC: New Global Systems for Intelligent Transportation Management            Topic: 081FH5

    In the Open-source microscopic traffic simulation models project, a component based software framework is proposed to re-engineer CORISM data struture and CORISM interface. Under the architecture combing the innovative framework and the legacy CORISM, prototype of the open source traffic flow simulation models will be developed and demonstrated in the Phase I. In addition, areas identified by th ...

  3. Advanced Truck for High Speed Freight Operations

    SBC: Sharma & Associates, Inc.            Topic: 01FR1

    During Phase 1 of the project, Sharma & Associates, Inc. developed a concept for high speed freight truck intended for 70-ton, regular freight and bi-modal operation, at speeds up to 150 mph. The truck uses a rigid frame and an indpendent, compliant, primary suspension for its basic architecture. Constant contact side-bearings and yaw dampers were also added to improve dynamic performance. Vehi ...

  4. N/A

    SBC: Sharma & Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    There is a growing trend towards the use of ¿Car-Less¿ technology, where a rail-car is not needed to transport road-haul trailers over rail: Trailers operate in the usual manner over highways, drive up to a rail yard and transform to ¿rail-mode¿ with relative ease. In rail mode, many ¿Car-Less¿ units use slightly modified 3-piece, 70-ton freight car trucks. These trucks are no ...

  7. A NEW TECHNOLOGY CALLED "CHEMICAL PARAMETER SPECTROMETRY" IS MODIFIED TO BE ABLE TO ANALYZE SOLID, LIQUID, AND GASEOUSSAMPLES.

    SBC: Transducer Research Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A NEW TECHNOLOGY CALLED "CHEMICAL PARAMETER SPECTROMETRY" IS MODIFIED TO BE ABLE TO ANALYZE SOLID, LIQUID, AND GASEOUSSAMPLES. THE EXPERIMENTS PERFORMED IN THIS WORK RESULT IN THE DESIGN FOR A PROTABLE INSTRUMENT (BLACK BOX) THAT CAN IDENTIFY VIRTUALLY ALL HAZARDOUS COMMODITIES. THE HAZARD OUS SPILLS IDENTIFICATION SYSTEM IS PORTABLE, FULLY A YAUTOMATED, AND RUGGED. IT WILL IDENTIFY HAZARDOUS SUBS ...
