  1. CATALYTIC ESTER PULPING OF PINE

    SBC: Biodyne Chemicals Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE ESTER PULPING PROCESS DEVELOPED BY BIODYNE CHEMICALS PROMISES TO PRODUCE PULP FROM WOOD CHIPS IN HIGHER YIELD AT LESS COSTS AND POLLUTION THAN CONVENTIONAL KRAFT, SULFITE, AND MECHANICAL COMMERCIAL PULP SYSTEMS. IT ENVISIONS ONLY WOOD CHIPS ENTERING THE MILL, AND HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BE ENERGY SELF-SUFFICIENT. MOST OF THE EXPERIMENTAL WORK TO DATE HAS CENTERED ON THE PULPING OF ASPEN CHIPS BEC ...

  3. A FLOW-SHAPING SLUICE GATE FOR MEASURING AND CONTROLLING WATER FLOW

    SBC: Deerfield Controls            Topic: N/A

    IN THE UNITED STATES, AGRICULTURE ACCOUNTS FOR OVER 80 PERCENT OF THE TOTAL ANNUAL WATER CONSUMPTION. GROWING METROPOLITAN AREAS ARE PLACING NEW DEMANDS ON EXISTING WATERRESOURCES, REQUIRING THAT AGRICULTURAL IRRIGATION SYSTEMS BEAS EFFICIENT AS POSSIBLE. TO HELP OPTIMIZE THE FLOW DELIVERY OF IRRIGATION SYSTEMS, A COST-EFFECTIVE, ACCURATE FLOW-MEASURING SLUICE GATE FOR CANALSIDE TURNOUT METERING A ...

  5. SOLID STATE CULTURE OF MOLD TO PRODUCE BIOLOGICAL PESTICIDES AGAINST GYPSY MOTH

    SBC: Mycotech Corporation            Topic: N/A

    GYPSY MOTHS, SERIOUS DEFOLIATORS OF INCREASING FOREST ACREAGE, MAY BE COMBATED WITH ENTOMOPATHOGENIC FUNGI. COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENT OF THESE NATURAL BIOCIDES HAS BEEN HAMPERED BY THE INABILITY TO CHEAPLY PRODUCE LARGE NUMBER S OF VIABLE SPORES IN LIQUID SUBMERGED CULTURE. A COLUMNAR SOLID STATE CULTURE (CSSC) REACTOR DEVELOPED BY THIS COMPANYMAY BE ADAPTED FOR LOW-COST SPORE PRODUCTION. THIS APPROA ...

  6. PREDICTIONS OF ROCK ANCHOR CAPACITIES BY UP-HOLE SEISMIC VELOCITY TECHNIQUES

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

    A METHOD OF ESTABLISHING THE HOLDING CAPACITY OF ROCK ANCHORS IS PROPOSED. THE TECHNIQUE INVOLVES IMPROVED ELECTRONICS TO ESTABLISH UP-HOLD SEISMIC PROFILES. THESE VELOCITIES WOULD PROVIDE A QUANTIFIABLE METHOD OF DESIGNING ANCHORAGES IN COMPLEX STRATIGRAPHIES AND FRACTURED CONDITIONS SUCH AS COMMONLY FOUND IN CABLE LOGGING OPERATIONS. THE SYSTEM, OPERABLE BY A LAY LOGGER, WOULD ALLOW UTILIZATION ...

  7. BEHAVIOR OF METAL MATRIX COMPOSITES AT CRYOGENIC TEMPERATURES

    SBC: Advanced Materials Laboratory            Topic: N/A

    METAL MATRIX COMPOSITES THAT MAY BE USED IN DEEP SPACE VEHICLES MIGHT HAVE SEVERE INTERNAL STRESSES DUE TO THE THERMAL EXPANSION DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE MATRIX AND THE FIBERS. SINCE THE TEMPERATURES EXPERIENCED WITH THESE VEHICLES MAY BE AS LOW AS A FEW DEGREES ABOVE ABSOLUTE ZERO, IT IS NECESSARY TO KNOW THE THERMAL MECHANICAL BEHAVIOR OF METAL MATRIX COMPOSITES TO BE USED AS STRUCTURAL MATERIALS ...

  8. 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 ...

  10. UNIFIED SYMBOLIC AND NUMERICAL PROCESSING FOR AIRBORNE SURVEILLANCE

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO PROVE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING A NOVEL APPROACH OF COMBINED SYMBOLIC AND NUMERICAL INFORMATION PROCESSING TO AID E-2C OPERATORS TO CARRY OUT THEIR SURVEILLANCE MISSION. DUE TO THE VAST AMOUT OF SURVEILLANCE DATA THAT NEEDS TO BE PROCESSED, E-C2 OPERATORS FACE A DIFFICULT TASK IN CARRYING OUT THEIR MISSIONS. COMPLEX NUMERICAL ALGORITHMS FOR PROCESSING TARGET TRA ...
