Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. ON-LINE PROCESS CONTROL SENSOR FOR PARTICLE SIZE

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

    A PARTICLE SIZE SENSOR IS REQUIRED FOR ON-LINE PROCESS CON- TROL IN A METAL POWDER FORMING FACILITY. INSTRUMENTS AVAILABLE COMMERCIALLY FOR THIS SENSING RELY ON MEASUREMENTS OF LIGHT SCATTERING AT VERY SMALL ANGULAR INCREMENTS. IT IS PROBABLE THAT THE HIGHLY TURBULENT ENVIRONMENT IN WHICH THE METAL POWDERS ARE FORMED WILL PRODUCE SUFFICIENT ANGULAR DE-VIATION OF THE PROBING LIGHT BEAM TO INVALIDAT ...

  4. THERMOSET PLASTICS FROM CELLULOSE

    SBC: Springborn Materials Science            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS RESEARCH EFFORT IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING NEW THERMOSETTING PLASTICS BASED UPON CELLULOSE FROM WOOD. THIS PHASE I EFFORT WILL EXPLORE CROSSLINKING AGENTS SUCH AS DIEPOXIDES AND DIISOCYANATES ANDDETERMINE THEIR RELATIVE ABILITY TO SWELL AND CROSSLINK BOTHTHE AMORPHOUS AND CRYSTALLINE PORTIONS OF CELLULOSE. THE EXPOXIDES AND ISOCYANTATES TO BE INVESTIGATED ...

  5. INDIVIDUALIZED INTERACTIVE VIDEO

    SBC: Duffy Engineering            Topic: N/A

    PROVIDING INDIVIDUALIZED INSTRUCTION FOR DISABLED STUDENTS IN SPECIAL EDUCATION PLACEMENTS IS A TIME-CONSUMING PROCESS FOR EDUCATORS AND THUS COSTLY. COMPUTERIZED AND INTERACTIVEVIDEODISK EDUCATIONAL FORMATS MAY NOT BE READILY CUSTOMIZED FOR THE INDIVIDUAL STUDENT. HOWEVER, COMMONLY-AVAILABLE IN PERSONAL COMPUTERS AND HAND-HELD CAMCORDERS ARE TOOLS AVAIL ABLE IN MOST SCHOOLS. IF A PERSONAL COMPUTE ...

  6. EDUCATING INFORMED CONSUMERS: A NATIONAL SURVEY OF FAMILIESKNOWLEDGE CONCERNING RESPITE SERVICES

    SBC: Human Services Res Inst            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT IS BASED ON THE PREMISE THAT PRIMARY CARE- GIVERS SHOULD PLAY A MAJOR ROLE IN DESIGNING, MANAGING, AND MONITORING SERVICES WHICH SUPPORT CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIESAND THEIR FAMILIES. RESPITE SERVICES OFFERS BUT ONE FORUM FROM WHICH THEY CAN EXERCISE THESE ROLES. THROUGH THE USE OF AN ADVISORY BOARD, MADE UP LARGELY OF PRIMARY CARE GIVERSAND A NATIONAL SURVEY THIS PROJECT SEEKS TO DETE ...

  7. COUNTERCURRENT OPEN GRADIENT MAGNETIC SEPARATION OF PYRITE FROM COAL

    SBC: Advanced Energy Dynamics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS RESEARCH PROJECT WILL DEMONSTRATE THE TECHNICAL AND ECONOMIC FEASIBILITY OF A MAGNETIC SEPARATOR FOR OPERATION ON PULVERIZED COAL. A THEORETICAL COMPARISON OF THE SEPARATOR WITH WORK PUBLISHED ON OPEN GRADIENT MAGNETIC SEPARATION BY THE OAK RIDGE NATIONAL LABORATORY INDICATES THAT THE SEPARATOR WILL HAVE HIGH LEVELS OF ASH CLEANING. THIS IS BECAUSE OF ITS COUNTERCURRENT PRINCIPLE OF OPERATION ...

  8. INFRARED DETECTORS USING HIGH CRITICAL TEMPERATURE GRANULAR JOSEPHSON JUNCTIONS

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

    THE RECENT DISCOVERY OF HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTING MATERIALS HAS LED TO RENEWED INTEREST IN THE APPLICATION OF SUPERCONDUCTIVITY. THE NEW CERAMIC SUPERCONDUCTORS OFFER THE OPPORTUNITY OF USING THESE MATERIALS AS DETECTORS OF INFRARED RADIATION MORE CONVENIENTLY THAT THE OLDER, CLASSICAL SUPERCONDUCTORS. THE LARGER ENERGY GAP OF THESE NEW HIGH CRITICAL TEMPERATURE (T(C)) MATERIALS ALSO PROVID ...

  9. ADVANCED COAL LIQUEFACTION BY TEMPERATURE STAGED REACTORS

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

    IT HAS BEEN DETERMINED IN BENCH SCALE AND PILOT SCALE COAL LIQUEFACTION EXPERIMENTS THAT A PRETREATMENT AT MODERATE TEMPERATURES PRIOR TO LIQUEFACTION CAN SUBSTANTIALLY IMPROVELIQUEFACTION YIELDS AND QUALITY. HOWEVER, THERE IS LITTLE BASIC UNDERSTANDING OF THE PROCESSES THAT GIVE RISE TO THE OBSERVED PHENOMENA. THIS PROJECT SUGGESTS THE IDENTIFICATION AND OPTIMIZATION OF THE PRELIQUEFACTION CHEMIS ...
