  1. COAL LOCOMOTIVE PROPOSAL NO. 7300-912

    SBC: Brobeck Corp.            Topic: N/A

    COAL IS AN ATTRACTIVE FUEL FOR RAILROAD LOCOMOTIVES BECAUSE OF ITS DOMESTIC ABUNDANCE AND LOW COST PER UNIT OF HEAT. ONE RESTRAINT IN COAL AS A LOCOMOTIVE FUEL IS ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION. CONSIDERING THESE CONFLICTING CONDITIONS OF ATTRACTIVENESS AND DIFFICULTY IN USING COAL AS A FUEL, IT BECOMES QUITE IMPORTANT HOW THE COAL IS HANDLED AND CONVERTED TO HEAT FOR LOCOMOTIVE POWER. A STUDY OF HEAT EN ...

  2. SMOKE EMITTING INTERIOR MATERIALS FOR TRANSPORTATION VEHICLES

    SBC: Chem-tronics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A SIX MONTH PROGRAM IS PROPOSED TO DEVELOP RIGID SYNTOCTIC POLYIMIDE FOAM PANELS POSSESSING FLAME RESISTANCE, NO-SMOKE EMISSION AND LOW THERMAL CONDUCTANCE FOR REPLACING INTERIOR MATERIALS OF TRANSPORTATION VEHICLES NOW DESIGNATED AS POTENTIALLY HAZARDOUS. AT LEAST FOUR CANDIDATE MATERIALS WILL BE PREPARED AND TESTED TO SELECT THE MOST PROMISING CANDIDATE FOR SCALE-UP IN A PHASE II PROGRAM.

  6. PROBLEM

    SBC: Verac Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A HEURISTIC SEARCH PROCEDURE IS PROPOSED FOR SOLVING THE MIXED-INTEGER LINEAR PROGRAM ASSOCIATED WITH DETERMINING OPTIMAL SIGNAL TIMING FOR ARTERIAL AND NETWORK SIGNAL SYSTEMS. THE PROPOSED SEARCH PROCEDURE SHOWS PROMISE OF REDUCING THE COMPUTATIONAL BURDEN ASSOCIATED WITH SOLUTION OF LARGE SCALE PROBLEMS CONTAINING MANY INTEGER VARIABLES WHILE STILL PROVIDING ACCEPTABLE SOLUTION PERFORMANCE. THE ...

  7. Low-Cost, Full-Field, Surface Profiling Tool for Mechanical Damage Evaluation

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: 091PH1

    Mechanical damage (typically from third party excavations) is the most frequent source of leaks and ruptures in pipelines. The most common type of mechanical damage is dents, sometimes associated with secondary features such as gouges, external corrosion, or cracks. Currently used techniques for assessing dents are not accurate enough for reliable determination of fitness for service. In this p ...

  8. Tracking of heavy vehicles for estimating heavy load distribution across the highway system and Weigh-In-Motion Calibration

    SBC: CLR ANALYTICS INC.            Topic: 122FH4

    Weigh-In-Motion (WIM) has been employed as a major technology to collect heavy vehicles’ data on the freeways. Because WIM is one of the most costly and sophisticated data collection system, how to effectively utilize the valuable WIM data, monitor WIM stations' performance, and identify out of calibration stations are especially important. In this project, we propose an innovative and yet pract ...

  9. An Advanced Algorithm for Radar Derived Bathymetry

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: 913N

    NOAA can reduce costs and improve efficiency by remotely monitoring harbors, navigation channels, and coastlines for bathymetric changes. This will aid NOAA in its mission to maintain waterways and assure maritime safety. This remote sensing can be accomplished by implementing a new radar derived bathymetry capability. Areté Associates proposes to demonstrate an advanced algorithm to derive ba ...

  10. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millimeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 941D

    In the proposed effort, we will leverage this extensive experience and capabilities to realize a frequency agile mmW radiometer that can cover the range of DC-110 GHz and can be scaled to DC-200 GHz under Phase II. Ours is a photonic system that multiplies and up-coverts a low-frequency reference signal onto an optical carrier (laser) using EO modulation, then uses the modulation sidebands to inj ...
