  1. Real-Time In-Situ Measurement of Void Fraction and Specific Surface in Fresh Concrete

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 171FH2

    Water expansion during freeze-thaw cycles can cause deterioration in concrete, leading to scaling, cracking, and crumbling over a period of years. Resistance to this damage is achieved with a system of voids formed by adding surfactants to the fresh concrete to stabilize air bubbles naturally entrained during mixing. The volume fraction, size, and spacing of these voids are critical. It is importa ...

  2. RailMonitor: Real-Time Broken Rail Detection System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 171FR2

    Broken rails are a common cause of mainline derailments and a particular concern given the increasing use of our rail system for passenger traffic and petroleum products. The progressive nature of the defects provides an opportunity for early detection of cracks before they become significant enough to cause a derailment. Unfortunately, current inspection technology does not allow these inspection ...

  3. Improved Thermal and Acoustic Comfort for Motorcycle Helmets

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 151NH1

    Use of motorcycles helmets significantly reduces the risk of fatality or serious brain injury to riders in the event of a crash, but riders often do not wear helmets in warm weather because of thermal discomfort. We propose to develop an innovative ventilation and cooling system that will maintain a cool, dry environment inside the helmet while also meeting applicable safety standards. The key the ...

  4. Identification and Sorting of Printed Wiring Boards (PWB) within an E-Waste Recycling Stream

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: 05NCERP1

    Electronic waste (e-waste) is one of the most rapidly growing waste problems worldwide.  Improper handling of e-waste results in vast amounts of toxic waste being sent to landfills, consequently leaching into the water supply.  Due to these concerns, e-waste recycling is a rapidly growing industry.  Unfortunately, most current e-waste recycling processes rely on either m ...

  5. Enhanced Ethanol Diesel Blend for Emission Reduction

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 05NCERB2

    New engine diesel pollution is addressed in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Clean Diesel Truck and Buses, low sulfur diesel, and nonroad diesel rules.  Unfortunately, slow fleet turnover will extend full implementation.  EPA is interested in both retrofit technologies that reduce emissions (particulate matter, volatile organic pollutants, NOx) from diesel sourc ...

  6. A Retrofit and Low-Cost Small Industrial Boiler Flue Gas Purification Technology

    SBC: CM-Tec, Inc.            Topic: 04NCERB1

    This novel technology can simultaneously remove particulate matter smaller than 10 microns (PM10), sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxides (NO X), and mercury (Hg) from the flue gases of oil and coal-fired small industrial boilers. The technology uses ozone to oxidize NO into high oxides, and applies an innovative catalytic sorbent material to convert high nitrogen oxides and SO2 into nitric acid an ...

  7. Identification and Sorting of Printed Wiring Boards (PWB) Within An E-Waste Recycling Stream

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: 04NCERG1

    Electronic waste (e-waste) is one of the most rapidly growing waste problems worldwide. Improper handling of e-waste results in vast amounts of toxic waste being sent to landfills and leaching into the water supply. Because of these concerns, e-waste recycling is a rapidly growing industry. Unfortunately, most current e-waste recycling processes rely on manual hand sorting or differential density ...

  8. Integration of Advanced Inductive Signature Vehicle Detectors with an Advanced Transportation Controller running under the Real Time Linux Operating System

    SBC: Inductive Signature Technologies Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to determine what outputs from the SSAJ measurement system would be suitable for traffic control applications, to determine what the "real time" needs and accuracies are for measurements of signature, speed, acceleration, and jerk (SSAJ), to integrate the output of our IST-222 Standard Signature Output Card with and Advanced Transportation Contorller (ATC) and finally to demonstrate pro ...

  9. ZONE I SOIL DECONTAMINATION THROUGH IN SITU VAPOR STRIPPING PROCESSES

    SBC: Aware, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE REMEDIATION OF CONTAMINATED SOILS AND GROUNDS TO ENSURE PROTECTION OF PUBLIC HEALTH AND THE ENVIRONMENT IS DIFFICULTAND COSTLY. THERE IS A CRITICAL NEED FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OFTECHNOLOGIES WHICH ARE BOTH TECHNICALLY SOUND AND COST- EFFECTIVE. THE POTENTIAL REMOVAL OF ROGANIC CHEMICALS FROM UNSATURATED SOILS VIA VAPOR PHASE TRANSPORT APPEARS TO SHOW GREAT PROMISE. THIS APPROACH HAS APPLICABILITY ...

  10. Reduced NOx/Hydrocarbon Emissions via Oxygen Enriched Lean Burn Engines

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

    Lean burn spark engines are a promising technique to further reduce both NOx and hydrocarbon/carbon monoxide (HC/CO) engine emissions. Higher lean burn levels improve HC/CO oxidation while simultaneously reducing NOx formation. The NOx reduction is due to cooler flame temperatures. While the lean burn limit (beyond which combustion is poor) restricts further emission reductions, the use of oxyg ...
