  1. DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF A NOVEL HIGH FORCE MAGNETIC SEPARATOR

    SBC: ADVANCED MATERIALS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    THE PLANNED WORK IS AN INVESTIGATION OF HIGH ENERGY PERMANENT MAGNET SEPARATOR DESIGNS WHOSE EXPRESS PURPOSE IS TO PROVIDE AN EFFICIENT MEANS FOR SLURRY REACTOR WAX/CATALYST SEPARATION IN THE FISCHER-TROPSCH PROCESS USING AN IRON-BASED CATALYST. THESE STUDIES WILL INVOLVE MAGNETIC CIRCUIT MODELING AND OPTIMIZATION AS WELL AS BENCH-TYPE RUNS WITH SLURRY REACTOR WAXES/CATALYSTSO AS TO DETERMINE THE ...

  2. CONTROL OF DIOXIN EMISSIONS FROM WASTE FUEL COMBUSTION BY COFIRING WITH COAL

    SBC: Coal Tech Corp.            Topic: N/A

    EXPERIMENTAL EVIDENCE INDICATES THAT SULFUR IN COAL SUPPRESSES DIOXIN FORMATION FROM CHLORINE COMPOUNDS DURING COAL COMBUSTION. THEREFORE, COFIRING COAL WITH HIGH CHLORINE, MUNICIPAL REFUSE DERIVED FUELS (RDF) OR PAPER INDUSTRY WASTES SHOULD BE EFFECTIVE IN SUPPRESSING DIOXIN FORMATION FROM THESE FUELS. SINCE SULFUR DIOXIDE (SO2) EMISSIONS MUST ALSO BE CONTROLLED IT ISDESIRABLE TO COMBINE DIOXIN A ...

  4. HIGH PERFORMANCE SEARCHING AND PATTERN RECOGNITION FOR HUMAN GENOME DATABASES

    SBC: Paralogic, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE HUMANE GENOME PROJECT HAS THE DESIRED GOAL OF DETERMINING THE ENTIRE HUMAN GENETIC CODE (DNA) CONSISTING OF 3 BILLION NUCLEOTIDE BASES. BECAUSE OF THE EXPECTED SIZE OF THE GENOME DATABASE(S), NEW TECHNOLOGIES THAT PROVIDE COST-EFFECTIVE AND TIME-EFFECTIVE SEARCHING, INTERPRETATION, AND ANALYSIS WILL BE REQUIRED. ONE VERY PROMISING APPROACH TO THIS PROBLEM HAS BEEN THE APPLICATION OF GRAMMARS T ...

  5. A RAPID CALCULATION OF THE COULOMB FIELD IN LARGE MOLECULES

    SBC: Q-CHEM, INC.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

  6. HYBRID POLYMERIC GLAZING MATERIALS

    SBC: Rolltrusion Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A NEW PROCESS IS PROPOSED FOR THE APPLICATION OF POLYMERIC MATERIALS FOR AUTOMOTIVE WINDOWS. SEMI-CRYSTALLINE POLYMERIC MATERIALS CAN BE RENDERED CLEAR THROUGH 3-D ORIENTATION VIA SOLID STATE PROCESSING. APPLYING THIS TECHNOLOGY TO A HYBRID POLYMER STRUCTURE CAN RESULT IN CHEMICALLY RESISTANT, MECHANICALLY STRONG, OPTICALLY CLEAR AND ECONOMICALLY VIABLE PLASTIC WINDOWS FOR GROUND TRANSPORTATION.

  7. A THERMAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM FOR A THERMOPHOTOVOLTAIC/GENERALPURPOSE HEAT SOURCE POWER SUPPLY

    SBC: THERMACORE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DIRECT ENERGY CONVERSION EMPLOYING GALLIUM-ANTIMONY THERMOPHOTOVOLTAIC (TPV) CELLS CAN ACHIEVE CONVERSION EFFICIENCIES AND SPECIFIC POWER (W/KG) ABOUT TWICE AS HIGH AS THE ACHIEVABLE EFFICIENCIES AND SPECIFIC POWER FOR THERMOELECTRIC CONVERSION. ON THE OTHER HAND, THERMOPHOTOVOLTAIC CELLS MUST OPERATE BELOW 350 K, VERSUS 550 K FOR THERMOELECTRIC CELLS. THE REDUCED OPERATING TEMPERATURE INCREASES T ...

  8. A POROUS METAL HEAT EXCHANGER TO COOL A MICROWAVE CAVITY

    SBC: THERMACORE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE POWER OUTPUT OF GYROTRONS USED IN THE FUSION PROGRAM IS LIMITED BY THE COOLING OF THE MICROWAVE CAVITY. EXISTING DESIGNS CAN EXTRACT A HEAT FLUX OF 1 TO 3 KW/CM(2). THE RUSSIANS HAVE REPORTED A FLUX OF 4 TO 5 KW/CM(2) USING POROUS METAL HEAT TRANSFER. POROUS METAL HEAT TRANSFER USES A THIN POROUS LAYER OF METAL POWDER UNDER A FACESHEET, WHICH IS BONDED TO A COOLANT SUPPLY/REMOVAL PLATE. THE LA ...

  9. A POROUS METAL HEAT EXCHANGER WITH A LIQUID METAL COOLANT FOR COOLING PLASM-FACING COMPONENTS

    SBC: THERMACORE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DIVERTOR PLATES USED IN TOKAMAK FUSION DEVICES CAN BE SUBJECTED TO HEAT FLUXES OF UP TO 1 TO 5 KW/CM(2). EFFICIENT COOLING OF THESE AND OTHER PLASMA-FACING SURFACES IS NECESSARY FOR RELIABLE TOKAMAK OPERATION. THE CAPABILITY FOR POROUS METAL HEAT TRANSFER TO HANDLE HEAT FLUX AS HIGH AS 6 TO 8 KW/CM(2) HAS RECENTLY BEEN DEMONSTRATED. THESE TESTS WERE CONDUCTED USING WATER COOLANT IN A COPPER HEAT E ...

  10. AN INNOVATIVE CESIUM SUPPLY FOR HYBRID THERMIONIC REACTORS

    SBC: THERMACORE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    RECENTLY PROPOSED HYBRID THERMIONIC NUCLEAR SPACE POWER SYSEMS HAVE BEEN GIVEN MUCH ATTENTION DUE TO THE BENEFITS OF THE DUAL MODE OF OPERATION. A HYBRID REACTOR SYSTEM CAN PROVIDE ELECTRIC POWER FOR ON-BOARD REQUIREMENTS THROUGH THE THERMIONIC CONVERTERS AS WELL AS PROPULSION THROUGH DIRECT IN-CORE THERMAL HEATING OF HYDROGEN. THIS CONCEPT IMPROVES CAPABILITIES OF FUTURE SPACE MISSIONS, BUT PLACE ...
