  1. "A NEW INSTRUMENT FOR THE CHARACTERIZATION OF FOSSIL ENERGY RESOURCES"

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MANY IMPORTANT PROBLEMS IN CHARACTERIZING MATERIALS IN THE EARTH'S LITHOSPHERE INVOLVE DETERMINING BOTH ORGANIC AND INORGANIC CONSTITUENTS. RECENT PROGRESS HAS BEEN MADE IN THE USE OF THERMAL ANALYSIS IN WHICH THE SAMPLE IS TAKEN THROUGH A TEMPERATURE EXCURSION AND ITS WEIGHT LOSS OR EVOLVED PRODUCTS ARE MONITORED. WHILE THESE TECHNIQUES HAVEPROVIDED IMPORTANT CHARACTERISTICS OF THE ORGANIC MATERI ...

  2. "DESIGN OF THE SYSTEM ARCHITECTURE FOR A CHEMICAL ENGINEERING WORKSTATION"

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DUE TO THE COMPLEXITY OF THE CALCULATIONS AND THE LACK OF EFFECTIVE STANDARDS, CHEMICAL ENGINEERS AND CHEMISTS HAVE BEEN LEFT BEHIND THEIR MECHANICAL AND ELECTRONIC COUNTERPARTS IN HAVING THE BENEFITS OF A COMPUTER WORKSTATION ADDRESSED TO THEIR REQUIREMENTS. A NEED EXISTS FOR THE MEANS TO INTEGRATE EXISTING AND NEW APPLICATIONS THROUGH A COMMON DATABASE, TO PROVIDE AN EFFECTIVE USER INTERFACE AND ...

  3. "DEVELOPMENT OF A ROBUST NONEQUILIBRIUM PARABOLIZED NAVIER-STOKES CODE"

    SBC: Engineering Analysis Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE GOAL OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO PRODUCE A NEW, REAL GAS, THREE-DIMENSIONAL, PARABOLIZED NAVIER-STOKES (PNS) CODE WHICH IS MORE ROBUST, MORE ACCURATE, AND EASIER TO USE THAN THOSE PRESENTLY IN EXISTENCE. MOST "CURRENT DAY" PNS CODES (INCLUDING THE AFWAL PNS CODE) ARE BASED ON THE NONITERATIVE, IMPLICIT BEAM-WARMING FINITE-DIFFERENCE SCHEME. UNFORTUNATELY, CODES OF THIS TYPE HAVE PROVEN TO BEUNRELIA ...

  4. "REDUCTION OF ELECTRONICS INDUSTRY TOXIC AIR EMISSIONS THROUGH THE USE OF A NOVEL VENT GAS SCRUBBER"

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    THE RAPID GROWTH OF THE AMERICAN MICROELECTRONICS INDUSTRY HAS SPAWNED NEW ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH THE PROCESSES USED TO PREPARE SEMICONDUCTOR CHIPS, THE KEY COMPONENTS OF SOPHISTICATED ELECTRONIC DEVICES. MOST OF THESE PROBLEMS HAVE BEEN IGNORED BECAUSE RELATIVELY LOW VOLUMES OF CHEMICALS ARE ASSOCIATED WITH SEMICONDUCTOR FABRICATION. HOWEVER, THE EXCEPTIONALLY HIGH TOXICITY OF THE ...

  5. A MINE AND EXPLOSIVES DETECTION CAPABILITY EMPLOYING X-RAYS (MINEDECX)

    SBC: Technology International Incorporated of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    TECHNOLOGY INTERNATIONAL INCORPORATED (TII) PROPOSES A PROGRAM TO DESIGN, TEST, AND MANUFACTURE A MINE AND EXPLOSIVES DETECTION CAPABILITY EMPLOYING X-RAYS (MINEDECX), UTILIZING MULTIPLE-ENERGY BACKSCATTER IMAGING. THE MINEDECX IS EXPECTED TO PROVIDE A PRECISE MEANS OF DETECTING BURIED ANTI-VEHICULAR AND ANTI-PERSONNEL LAND MINES. THE MAIN GOALS INCLUDE, DESIGN AND EVENTUAL FABRICATION OF A MINE D ...

  6. A MULTI FREQUENCY JET VENTILATOR FOR USE UNDER BATTLEFIELD CONDITIONS DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED EFFORT FOCUSES UPON THE DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT OF AN ULTRA HIGH FREQUENCY JET VENTILATOR THAT COULD BE USED IN CONJUNCTION WITH OTHER PROCEDURES FOR THE TREATMENT OF INJURIES SUSTAINED UNDER BOTH COMBAT AND NONCOMBAT CONDITIONS. THE ULTRA HIGH FREQUENCY JET VENTILATOR IS PORTABLE, I.E. COMPACT, LIGHTWEIGHT AND HAS LOW POWER CONSUMPTION, AND COULD BE OPERATED AND MAINTAINED BY INDIVIDU ...

  7. A NARROW BEAMWIDTH ADVANCED ACOUSTIC ARRAY MEASUREMENT SYSTEM- FEASIBILITY STUDY AND CONCEPTUAL DESIGN

    SBC: Applied Measurement Systems,            Topic: N/A

    FOR PHASE I, AMSI PROPOSES TO IDENTIFY AND ESTABLISH THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF VARIOUS ADVANCED ACOUSTIC ARRAY CONCEPTS. THREE GENERIC APPROACHES ARE CURRENTLY IDENTIFIED: 1) OPTIMIZE THE SENSOR DESIGN (I.E., DIRECTIONAL SENSORS, ETC.), 2) OPTIMIZE HYDROPHONE/ GROUP/ARRAY GEOMETRY (I.E., MULTI-APERTURES, ETC.), AND 3) IMPLEMENT SIGNAL PROCESSING TECHNIQUES (I.E., VARIOUS ANALYTIC CONTINUATION T ...

  8. A PROPOSAL FOR BUILDING A LINDA COMPILER AND COMMUNICATION KERNEL FOR PARALLEL PROGRAMMING ON HYPERCUBE-CONNECTED MULTICOMPUTERS

    SBC: Scientific Comput Assoc            Topic: N/A

    HYPERCUBE-CONNECTED MULTICOMPUTERS LIKE THE INTEL IPSC ARE OF GROWING INTEREST TO THE PARALLEL PROGRAMMING COMMUNITY. THEY OFFER ADVANTAGES IN SCALABILITY AND IN COST OVER COMPETING MULTI-COMPUTER ARCHITECTURES. WE PROPOSE TO BUILDAN IMPLEMENTATION OF THE PARALLEL PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE LINDAON THE IPSC; THE FINISHED SYSTEM SHOULD BE PORTABLE TO OTHER HYPERCUBE MACHINES. A LINDA SYSTEM CONSISTS OF A ...

  9. A STRABISMUS CORRECTING PROSTHESIS

    SBC: Dsp Engineering Inc            Topic: N/A

    TREATMENT OF STRABISMUS REMAINS A SIGNIFICANT CHALLENGE TO THE FIELD OF OPHTHALMOLOGY. A NEW APPROACH HAS BEEN TAKEN TO TREAT THIS CONDITION WHICH PROVIDES A LEVEL OF PRECISION AND FLEXIBILITY UNOBTAINABLE VIA SURGICAL AND/OR PHARMOCOLOGICAL MEANS. THE WELL-ESTABLISHED TECHNIQUE OF ELECTRICAL STIMULATION TO PRODUCE CONTROLLED MUSCLE CONTRACTION HAS BEEN EMPLOYED IN A NOVEL WAY. A PROSTHESIS SYSTEM ...

  10. A USER-FRIENDLY VOICE INTERACTIVE LEARNING AID FOR INDIVIDUALS WITH HANDICAPS (VILAH)

    SBC: Technology International Incorporated of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    MANY INDIVIDUALS WITH DISABILITIES WOULD BENEFIT FROM IMPROVED METHODS FOR VOICE INPUT INTO, AND VOICE OUTPUT FROM, MICROCOMPUTERS. THE ADVANTAGES OF COMPUTERIZED VOICE OUTPUT FROM PRINTED MATERIAL FOR BLIND OR VISUALLY IMPAIRED INDIVIDUALS IS OBVIOUS. VERY OFTEN, INDIVIDUALS WITH LANGUAGE-LEARNING DISABILITIES FALL INTO THIS CATEGORY. THEADVANTAGES OF SYNTHESIZED SPEECH IS OBVIOUS FOR INDIVIDUALS ...
