  1. FEASIBILITY OF BIODEGRADATION OF WASTE LIQUID COAL TAR

    SBC: Bioremediation Consulting,            Topic: N/A

    COAL TAR IS A BY-PRODUCT OF THE COAL GASIFICATION PROCESS USED WIDELY BETWEEN 1820 AND 1950 TO PRODUCE A NATURAL GAS SUBSTITUTE. DURING THAT TIME, BILLIONS OF GALLONS OF TAR WERE PRODUCED AT MORE THAN 1500 GAS MANUFACTURING FACILITIESLOCATED THROUGHOUT THE U.S. A LARGE PORTION OF THIS WASTE TAR REMAINS IN STORAGE OR WAS DISPOSED OF BY INJECTION INTO SUBSURFACE SITES. COAL TAR IS A MIXTURE OF HYDRO ...

  2. "MITIGATION OF ACID RAIN AND OXIDANT IMPACTS ON CROPS AND FORESTS UTILIZING MARINE EXTRACTS"

    SBC: Maricultura Inc            Topic: N/A

    RECENT ASSESSMENTS ESTIMATE U.S. CROP LOSSES FROM ELEVATED OZONE LEVEL AND OTHER OXIDANTS (SULFUR DIOXIDE, NITROGEN DIOXIDE) TO BE AS MUCH AS $5 BILLION ANNUALLY. ADDITIONALLY,SEVERE FOREST DAMAGE MAY RESULT FROMPOLLUTION-RELATED OXI- DANTS PARTICULARLY IN EUROPE WHERE THERE HAS BEEN A DRAMATICDECLINE IN FOREST ECOSYSTEMS OVER THE PAST SIX YEARS. THIS RESEARCH IS DIRECTED AT THE MITIGATION OF SUCH ...

  3. FLUIDIZED BED FOR PREVENTION OF FREEZING IN CRYOGENIC HEAT EXCHANGERS

    SBC: Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A SERIOUS PROBLEM IN HEAT EXCHANGERS WHERE ATMOSPHERIC AIR IS COOLED TO CRYOGENIC TEMPERATURES IS THAT THE AMBIENT WATER VAPOR AND CO(2) FREEZE ONTO THE HEAT TRANSFER SURFACES. AS THE SOLID DEPOSITS ACCUMULATE THEY ADVERSELY AFFECT PERFORMANCE BY DECREASING HEAT EXCHANGER EFFECTIVENESS AND INCREASING PRESSURE DROP. AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH FOR DEALING WITH THE FREEZING PROBLEM WHICH OFFERS SIGNIFICA ...

  4. ATMOSPHERIC EFFECTS OF A NUCLEAR EXCHANGE: MODIFICATION OF CHEMICAL COMPOSITIONS OPTICAL PROPERTIES AND CLIMATE

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    IN THE LAST TWO YEARS, THERE HAVE BEEN INCREASING CONCERNS ABOUT THE POTENTIALLY LARGE COOLING OF THE LAND SURFACE TEMPERATURE RESULTING FROM THE SOOT AND DUST INJECTED INTO THE ATMOSPHERE BY THE EXPLOSIONS AND SECONDARY FIRES FROM NUCLEAR EXCHANGES, THE SO-CALLED "NUCLEAR WINTER" SCENARIOS. HERE WE ARGUE THAT, IN ADDITION TO DUST AND SOOT, A LARGE NUMBER OF TRACE GASES (NO[X], H[2]0, HC, CH[4]) C ...

  5. ADVANCED IRCM SOURCE

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    FUTURE THREAT INFRARED MISSILE SEEKERS WILL POSSESS THE CAPABILITY TO EFFECTIVELY DISCRIMINATE AGAINST IR DECOY FLARES. NEW DECOY FUELS MUST BE IDENTIFIED WHICH PROVIDE A GOOD SPECTRAL MATCH BETWEEN DECOYS AND HELICOPTERS, AND WHICH HAVE IMPROVED TOTAL RADIANT INTENSITY AND BURNING CHARACTERISTICS. IN ADDITION, ALTERNATIVE DECOY CONCEPTS TO THE FREE-GRAIN FLARE MUST BE EVALUATED. IN THIS PROPOSAL, ...

  7. A NON-INTRUSIVE TURBINE TEMPERATURE FOR DIAGNOSTIC AND MONITORING APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ACCURATE MEASUREMENTS OF TURBINE BLADE TEMPERATURES ARE IMPORTANT IN MONITORING TURBINE HEALTH AND PERFORMANCE AND IN DIAGNOSING PROBLEMS. CURRENT INTRUSIVE AND OPTICAL TECHNIQUES HAVE SHORTCOMINGS. THERMOCOUPLES HAVE PROBLEMS WITH DURABILITY AND ACCURACY. TWO COLOR PYROMETRY LSO ENCOUNTERS PROBLEMS WITH ACCURACY DUE TO INTERFERENCE BY REFLECTED RADIATION AND PARTICULARLY REFLECTED EMISSION FROM T ...

  9. COMPRESSIBLE FLUID DYNAMICS TO FIELD-MATTER INTERACTIONS WITH VACUUM SPACE SCALAR VELOCITY POTENTIAL TO GENERATE FORCE VECTORS

    SBC: Aerospace Systems Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE PROJECT OBJECTIVE IS TO IDENTIFY PROMISING DYNAMIC FIELD-MATTER INTERACTIONS WITH THE SCALAR VELOCITY POTENTIAL OF VACUUM SPACE BY USING THE THEORY OF COMPRESSIBLE FLUID DYNAMICS AND TO SELECT THE GEOMETRY WITH THE OPTIMUM COEFFICIENT OF PERFORMANCE FOR EXPERIMENTAL VERIFICATION. THE ZERO POINT QUANTUM DYNAMIC ENERGY SINGULARITIES OF VACUUM SPACE WILL BE TREATED IN STATISTICAL MECHANICS FASHIO ...

  10. ZT IMAGING FOR LAYERED THIN WALL STRUCTURES

    SBC: American Science and Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CARBON-CARBON AND FILAMENT WOUND COMPOSTIES NOT ONLY OFFER UNIQUE MECHANICAL PROPERTIES AND CAPABILITIES, BUT ARE DIFFICULT TO INSPECT AND DETERMINE MANUFACTURING INTEGRITY. DEFECTS OF INTEREST ARE VARIATIONS IN DENSITY AND CHEMICAL SPECIES, VOIDS, AND CRACKS. A NEW IMAGING TECHNOLOGY, ZT, HAS BEEN DEVELOPED WHICH IS INTRINSICALLY TOMOGRAPHIC, IMAGES IN PLANES PARALLEL TO THE OBJECT SURFACE, AND I ...
