  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. Automated parking-cruising detection and measurement using Bluetooth AVI Sensor network

    SBC: RAPID FLOW TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: 142FH2

    Searching for street parking, a behavior known as cruising for parking, leads to excess congestion and pollution. Many recent smart parking interventions have attempted to address this issue, but the problem of effectively detecting and measuring cruising remains largely unsolved. The goal of this work is to develop methods to detect and measure cruising for parking and its effects on congestion u ...

  5. Novel Methods of IED Suppression and Neutralization to Include Next Generation WMD Dispersal Devices

    SBC: NOKOMIS, INC            Topic: DTRA06007

    There is an urgent need to procure for our military forces on the ground in Iraq and in other locations technology and equipment which provide the capability to effectively and immediately detect, assess, and defend against the threat from Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). It is believed that this same threat, applied to Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) dispersal, could also increasingly beco ...

  6. New Thermobaric Materials and Weapon Concepts

    SBC: GENERAL SCIENCES INC            Topic: DTRA06010

    Improvements in configuration of potential thermobaric warheads are presented. Such improvements in configuration will allow faster mixing rates, resulting in a reduction in total reaction time. Higher reaction rates, and lower reaction times lead to more complete reaction of thermobaric fuels, which will cause thermobaric weapons to better engage enclosed targets and cause more extensive damage ...

  7. Enhanced Stability and Penetration Depth of Deep Earth Penetrators

    SBC: GENERAL SCIENCES INC            Topic: DTRA06009

    Three concepts will be evaluated in order to achieve flow separation and penetration enhancement of Earth Penetrating Weapons (EPW). One concept addresses the merit of carrying fluid within the EPW. The other two describe new techniques addressing the generation of gases from the structure of the penetrator accompanied by energy release in the interface. Experimental as well as analytical effort ...

  8. Novel Methods of IED Suppression and Neutralization to Include Next Generation WMD Dispersal Devices

    SBC: GENERAL SCIENCES INC            Topic: DTRA06007

    The use of the Improvised Explosive Device (IED) has become a favorite weapon of choice against the U.S. and Iraqi military and civilian population during the current conflict in Iraq. The potential use of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) as IEDs to increase the area of effect and intensity of the attacks is growing as is the possibility of spreading IED use around the globe. The wide spread av ...

  9. Reactive-Fiber-Reinforced Composites as Structural Materials

    SBC: DE Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DTRA05002

    We propose to develop reactive composite materials with sufficient strength and stiffness to serve as structural components for penetrating weapons and other munitions. The composites will consist of two materials that react with each other, in either oxidation-reduction (such as in a thermite) or bimetallic reactions. One component will be in the form of fiber, wire, or wire-mesh, within a bondin ...

  10. Non-Energetic Payload Technologies

    SBC: GENERAL SCIENCES INC            Topic: DTRA05011

    To address the needs of the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), GSI will perform in three areas during the course of this effort. 1) GSI will evaluate a new formulation, capable of self-propagating reaction with the production of an electrically conductive aerosol, for the purpose of Intrusive Electronic Equipment Defeat. This material will be evaluated against electronic equipment (PC's) and ...
