  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. Development of a Wearable Bladder Monitoring System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DHA172012

    Soldiers with spinal cord injury (SCI) face a lifetime of bladder dysfunction. Although the type and character of this dysfunction depends on the severity and level of spinal injury, many of these soldiers and veterans suffer from renal insufficiency, frequent and severe antibiotic-resistant bladder infections, and the emotional and social stress of unexpected bladder leakage. We propose that sign ...

  3. Development of an Automated Vascular Access Device

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DHA173003

    Vascular access is a critical and early step in the stabilization and treatment of critically injured soldiers and civilians. Traditional peripheral intravenous (PIV) access and central venous cannulation (CVC) access becomes exceedingly difficult in the field, particularly in patients who are volume-depleted from blood loss or dehydration, vasoconstricted, or hypothermic. We propose a self-contai ...

  4. Automated Vestibular Rehabilitation Management System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DHA182005

    Dizziness is a common complaint, with about one third of the population experiencing dizziness at some point in their life. Vestibular rehabilitation targets vestibular adaptation and substitution for patients with vertigo and dizziness of vestibular origin. Unfortunately, vestibular rehabilitation requires specialized physical therapists who may not be accessible to service members or the general ...

  5. Biofidelic Rat Surrogate for Blast-Induced Neurotrauma Studies

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A17AT022

    Blast-induced Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a major threat to the health of military personnel serving in modern theaters. As such, the biomechanical injury pathways of TBI are and have been the focus of many animal studies. However, differences in the experimental setups across laboratories make it difficult to draw definitive conclusions from the resulting data. A tool that can accurately e ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. NEW TRANSIT MARKETS FOR COMPETITIVE PROCUREMENT

    SBC: Dean P Bell & Assoc Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN UNPRECEDENTED PUBLIC SECTOR/PRIVATE SECTOR BUSINESS PARTNERSHIP AMONG PRIVATE BUS OPERATORS, VISITOR AND CONVENTION BUREAUS (C&VB) AND PUBLIC TRANSIT AGENCIES TO MEET THE GROWING TRANSPORTATION NEEDS OF THE MEETING MARKET (E.G., CONVENTIONS AND CORPORATE MEETINGS). THIS WILL DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF ESTABLISHING A FIXED-ROUTE SHUTTLE SERVICE BETWEEN HOTELS AND CONVENTION ...
