  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. SBIR Phase I: Novel, Robust Process for Thin, Dense Ceramic Coatings

    SBC: Solution Spray Technologies, LLC            Topic: MI

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project is aimed at development of a novel, low-cost process for manufacturing environmental barrier coatings (EBCs) for ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) in aviation gas turbines. A key limitation for CMC adoption is the unavailability of inexpensive, truly gas impervious EBCs to provide required CMC engine service life. While novel EBC compositions ...

  6. GENETIC TRANSFORMATION AND GENE EXPRESSION IN WHITE PINE (PINUS STROBUS)

    SBC: Aeta Corp            Topic: N/A

    IN RECENT YEARS, CONSIDERABLE ATTENTION HAS BEEN FOCUSED ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF TECHNIQUES FOR GENETIC TRANSFORMATION OF HIGHER PLANTS. MOST ADVANCES HAVE BEEN MADE USING EITHER PETUNIA OR NICOTIANA AS A MODEL EXPERIMENTAL SYSTEM, MAINLY BECAUSE THESE PLANTS RESPOND WELL FOR REGENERATION IN CELL CULTURE. THERE IS AN OBVIOUS NEED TO EXTEND THESE STUDIES TO OTHER SPECIES, FOREST TREES IN PARTICULAR, ...

  8. INTEGRATED GAAS EMITTER FOR OPTICAL INTERCONNECTIONS

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE EFFECT OF SCALING DOWN DEVICE DIMENSIONS OF VLSI STRUCTURES AND THE COMBINATION OF INCREASED CIRCUIT COMPLEXITY DURING THE SCALING PROCESS IS PLACING SEVERE LIMITATIONS ON THE MINIMUM PROPAGATION DELAY OF METALLIC INTERCONNECTS. OPTICAL INTERCONNECTS REMOVE THOSE SPEED LIMITATIONS AND OFFER A DEGREE OF FLEXIBILITY THAT ELECTRICAL INTERCONNECTS COULD NEVER OBTAIN. THE KEY OPPORTUNITY IS TO INTE ...

  9. THE SUSPENSION CORE DRILL

    SBC: Browning Engineering            Topic: N/A

    CONVENTIONAL ROCK CORE DRILLING AT GREAT DEPTHS IS EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE AND TIME CONSUMING. ITS MAJOR DRAWBACK IS THE REQUIRED LENGTH OF DRILL PIPE. THE SUSPENSION CORE DRILL IS SUPPORTED BY CONTINUOUS FLEXIBLE LEADS HELD ON ONE OR MORE HIGH-SPEED REELS. WITHDRAWALS AND REPLACEMENT TIMES CAN BE REDUCED BY AN ORDER-OF-MAGNITUDE. COMMERCIAL USES INCLUDE STANDARD CORING APPLICATIONS AS WELL AS INTERMI ...
