  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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. RESEARCH ON AN AIRBORNE WIND SHEAR SENSOR

    SBC: OPHIR CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    THE RECOGNIZED LOW LEVEL WIND SHEAR PHENOMENON KNOWN AS A MICROBURST POSES A SERIOUS AIR SAFETY THREAT TO COMMERCIAL AVIATION WHILE IN A LANDING OR POSES A SERIOUS COMMERCIAL AVIATION WHILE IN A LANDING OR TAKEOFF PATTERN. THIS LOW LEVEL WIND SHEAR HAS BEEN DEMONSTRATED TO DE A THIS LOW LEVEL WIND SHEAR HAS BEEN DEMONSTRATED TO BE A MAJOR CONTRIBUTING FACTOR TO SEVERAL CRASHES OF COMMERCIAL AIRLIN ...
