  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. 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 ...

  5. LOW COST MASS PRODUCED ENVIRONMENTALLY STABLE SINGLE MODE COUPLER

    SBC: Aster Assocs            Topic: N/A

    FIBER OPTIC COUPLERS ARE FOUND IN MOST CURRENT APPLICATIONS OF FIBER OPTICS, FROM INSTRUMENTATION THROUGH TELECOMMUNICAIONS SYSTEMS AND FIBER OPTIC SENSORS. IN SPITE OF THEIR IMPORTANCE, FIBER OPTIC COUPLERS ARE STILL MADE BY HIGHLY LABOR INTENSIVE PROCESSES THAT ARE NOT PARTICULARLY AMENABLE TO AUTOMATION. COUPLING BETWEEN FIBERS IS A CONSEQUENCE OF THE OVERLAP OF THE EVANESCENT ELECTRIC FIELDS O ...

  6. LOW COST ACOUSTIC SENSOR TECHNOLOGY

    SBC: Atlantic Applied Research Corp            Topic: N/A

    AN ANALYTICAL MODEL OF THE RESPONSE OF FIBER OPTIC AND PIEZOELECTRIC POLYMER HYDROPHONES TO MECHANICAL VIBRATION, WILL BE DERIVED AND COMPARED WITH AT-SEA TRIAL DATA. ADDITIONAL NOISE MECHANISMS SUCH AS THERMAL FLUCTUATIONS OR PYRO-ELECTRICITY WILL BE EXAMINED. A DESIGN FOR LOW NOISE HYDROPHONES WILL BE PRODUCED.

  7. LOW COST TELEMETRY SYSTEM

    SBC: Atlantic Applied Research Corp            Topic: N/A

    A LOW COST FIBER OPTIC TELEMETRY SYSTEM IS PROPOSED FOR TOWED ARRAYS. A CONVENTIONAL PIEZO-ELECTRIC HYDROPHONE MODULATES AN FET WHICH IN TURN MODULATES AN LED. THE LIGHT FROM THE LED PROPAGATES UP A FIBER TO A PHOTO-DETECTOR ON THE MOTHER SHIP. A SEPARATE FIBER IS REQUIRED FOR EVERY CHANNEL. HOWEVER, THE TECHNOLOGY IS SIMPLE AND LOW RISK.

  8. REAL TIME DYNAMIC ANALYZER FOR QUALITY CONTROL OF RUBBER PRODUCTS

    SBC: Atlantic Applied Research Corp            Topic: N/A

    A SYSTEM FOR RAPID MEASUREMENT OF EFFECTIVE DYNAMIC PROPERTIES OF ELASTOMERIC PARTS (INCLUDING FINISHED PARTS FOR QUALITY CONTROL) WILL BE DEVELOPED. THIS SYSTEM WILL BE MICROCOMPUTER BASED AND "USER FRIENDLY" FOR USE BY NONSPECIALISTS IN A MANUFACTURING SETTING. IT WILL ALSO BE A USEFUL LABORATORY TOOL WHICH CAN BE EMPLOYED TO RELATE EFFECTIVE PROPERTIES OF PARTS TO INTRINSIC DYNAMIC PROPERTIES A ...

  9. PROPULSION MACHINERY SYSTEM NOISE PREDICTION MODEL

    SBC: Atlantic Applied Research Corp            Topic: N/A

    OVER THE LAST 15 YEARS DETAILED METHODS HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED TO PREDICT THE TORSIONAL AND LATERAL VIBRATION OF PROPULSION GEAR TRAINS USING LUMPED PARAMETER, DISTRIBUTED MASS-ELASTIC PARAMETER AND STATISTICAL ENERGY ANALYSIS TECHNIQUES. BY IMPROVING THE DETAIL USED FOR THE PROPELLER, SHAFTING AND SOUND ISOLATION COUPLINGS ON THE OUTPUT AND TURBINE ROTOR, SHAFTING AND COUPLING MODELLING, ON THE INPU ...

  10. INNOVATIVE METHODS FOR SUBMARINE DETECTION

    SBC: Atlantic Applied Research Corp            Topic: N/A

    A NOVEL ACTIVE SONAR IS SUGGESTED WHEREIN THE CAVITATION NOISE OF A SHIP'S SCREWS PROVIDES INSONIFICATION OF DISTANT TARGETS AND A TOWED LINE ARRAY PASSIVE SONAR PROVIDES THE RECEIVER OF REFLECTED SIGNALS. THE UNDERWATER RADIATED NOISE SOURCE IS CONTINUOUS IN FREQUENCY AND TIME, AND IS OF MODEST POWER. AN OWNER-SHIP OR COOPERATING SHIP OR SUBMARINE TOWED LINE ARRAY WILL CONTINUOUSLY MONITOR THE SO ...
