  1. Software Package for Material Model Evaluation

    SBC: APTEK, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I and II SBIR will develop a user-friendly, run-time efficient software package dedicated to fitting and evaluating material models used in finite element codes like LS-DYNA. The software package will consist of a pre-processor, a core driver, and a post-processor. The pre-processor will allow the user to specify the material model, model parameters, and desired load history. The dri ...

  2. A System to Educate the Public¿s About the Nation¿s Highway System

    SBC: DACAR, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Dissemination of information has proved a complex problem. However, with the advent of a global communication tool-the Internet-it now becomes feasible to provide information right into the home, business or educational institution. The key, is to provide the information in such a way that the public will want to look at it. In this proposal, we maintain that the public is interested in federal ...

  3. Roadway Pavement Condition Sensor

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase II SBIUR (Small Business Innovative Research) proposal is based on work accomplished by Foster-Miller, Inc. and Battelle Memorial Institute during a prior Phase I SBIR program under contract DTRS57-99-C-00090. The purpose of the Phase I program was to develop an in-vehicle sensor to measure roadway surface conditions and, from these measurements, determine the coefficient of friction b ...

  4. Creating a Global Infrastructure for Virtual Aids to Navigation (vATON

    SBC: WisdomTools Enterprises Inc            Topic: N/A

    As we look towards the next decade there are many opportunities to enhance services for navigation which compliment, enhance, and replace existing Aids to Navigation technologies. This Phase II project will continue the US Coast Guard¿s investigation of the development of a Virtual Aids to Navigation system by building a working prototype that delivers real-time data to the mariner. The vATON s ...

  6. Innovative Emergency Passenger Window System for Rail Vehicles

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This project will develop an improved emergency passenger window design to facilitate egress and rescue. Two innovative concepts are proposed, each of which addresses many limitations of currently available window systems. One utilizes an embedded low-friction cable which contracts the gasket, assisted by internal mechanical energy storage. The other uses a low energy pyrotechnic cord completel ...

  8. A New Nanocomposite Rubber Liner for Tires

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

    Halobutyl rubber is used as an inner liner for tubeless automotive tires because of its low permeability to gases and good compatibility with other tire materials. However, at high pressures and over prolonged time periods, tires leak. Factors such as under-inflation and heat are major contributors to tire damage. While the tires are slowly losing air pressure, consumers also do not maintain c ...

  9. Recycling of Portland Cement Concrete

    SBC: Road Processing Resources Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal is to investigate a concept of a shock producing component that will be the basis of a machine to remove deteriorated concrete pavement. The principal has been proven feasible, but further demonstration has to be accomplished to proceed with application and expense of continued development of a Road Remover/Recycler. This machine will move continuously on a lane width of pavement a ...

  10. The RISE Learning System

    SBC: SayTech Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The Federal Highway Administration¿s FY2000 Performance Plan outlines five specific, strategic goals: Safety, Mobility, Economic Growth and Trade, Human and Natural Environment, and National Security. With the RISE Learning System, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) will have the ability to offer low-cost training of the Outdoor Advertising Control Toolbox, along with many other traini ...
