  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. A Low-Swap Powered Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR)

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: CBD181002

    Creare has developed compact, high-efficiency blowers and comfortable, low-leakage closures for chem-bio protective gear that will enabledevelopment of a powered air purifying respirator (PAPR) with a high protection factor and low size, weight, and power consumption (SWaP).Our system will provide higher protection factors than conventional PAPR technology and be much more comfortable to wear than ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Low-Output High Precision Automated Powder Disseminator

    SBC: ADVANCED MECHANICAL SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY,            Topic: CBD06101

    This proposal presents a Phase I SBIR project to develop a high precision, low disperse rate powder disseminator for the US Army. In the development of the sensitive detecting agent, we need to release a precise amount of C&B agents in the controlled detection experiments. However, such a technology does not exist at the present time. After examining existing technologies, we believe that the r ...

  7. Model-Based Design of Test Systems for Chemical Protective Clothing

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: CBD02202

    The current methodology for testing the penetration resistance of textile materials to various chemical agents has a number of drawbacks, including significant uncertainties in the resulting data, inefficiency and expense, risk to test personnel, and limited range of test conditions. The objective of the proposed work is to apply unique computer models for textiles with accompanying experimental ...

  8. 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 ...
