  1. Multimodal Acoustic Tool for Inline Pipe Inspection

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 180PH1

    The United States has a vast network of pipelines used for fuel transport. This infrastructure, installed in 1950–1970, is one of the largest in the world. Yet poor/missing records of the materials used, combined with the overall age and associated environmental degradation effects, often results in unsafe operation. Current non-destructive inspection techniques are only capable of detecting mat ...

  2. Production of Environmentally-Acceptable BioLubricants for Hydropower Applications

    SBC: RiKarbon, Inc.            Topic: 15a

    Accidentally released lubricant into water bodies from hydropower production turbines and other marine (cruises, ships) applications challenges safe water recycling and management, and has invited a number of lawsuits.According to the Environmental Protection Agency, up to 16 million gallons of lubricants per year ? equating to 1.5 times the size of the Exxon Valdez spill ? are washed off into wat ...

  3. Crack Mitigation for Dry Storage Canisters

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 31a

    Welded stainless steel canisters that contain spent nuclear fuel (SNF) at near-marine sites have been found with salts on their outer surface that could lead to pitting, stress corrosion cracking (SCC), and potential release of radioactive materials.Welds that are most susceptible to SCC are difficult to reach because canisters are installed in concrete over-pack structures with limited access.Mit ...

  5. Health Monitoring of Digital I&C Systems Using Online Electromagnetic Measurements

    SBC: ANALYSIS AND MEASUREMENT SERVICES CORPORATION            Topic: 30a

    Instrumentation and control systems in nuclear power plants are made of an assembly of analog and/or digital components which together emit a unique electromagnetic signature that relates to the condition of the whole assembly.This signature can therefore be recorded, analyzed, and tracked to determine the condition and health of instrumentation and control systems.This is very important to the nu ...

  6. Very High Field Hybrid Superconducting Magnet Using Bi-2212

    SBC: Cryomagnetics, Inc.            Topic: 26b

    High energy physics research, modern medicine and advanced materials are continually demanding stronger magnetic fields. Efforts to generate fields in excess of 25 Tesla have been a principal driver of High Temperature Superconductor research. Although HTS materials were discovered decades ago and have always shown significant potential for high field use, until recently magnets using the technolo ...

  10. The Development of a Stabilized SEI Layer for Si-Containing Lithium Ion Battery Anodes

    SBC: Edward Buiel Consulting            Topic: 13a

    This project focuses on the development of new lithium ion battery (LIB) electrolyte/cathode combinations that enable stabilized solid electrolyte interphases (SEI) on Si- based materials. This effort focuses on negative electrodes combining synthetic graphite and Si- based materials, where Si contributes at least 30% of the reversible capacity of the electrode. This effort will result in signific ...
