  2. Compact Laser Shearography System for Crack Detection

    SBC: Laser Technology Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Laser Technology Inc. has demonstrated for the first time, the detection of non-visible cracks of less than 10 microns soon after casting of high performance concrete test prisms. Fine cracks may be associated with the two leading causes of concrete deterioration, delayed ettringite formation and alkali-silica reaction. Laser Technology is a leading developer, manufacturere and provider of laser ...

  5. All Aboard: Development of Portable Watercraft Transfer Technology to Increase Access to Boating for People with Disabilities

    SBC: BLUE SKY DESIGNS INC            Topic: N/A

    Portable, accessible and affordable watercraft transfer technology will be developed so individuals with mobility impairments can more safely and easily go boating and fishing. Without transfer technology, it takes a minimum of two people to transfer someone into a boat, at considerable risk to both the person being transferred and the people lifting them. The transfer mechanism's universal design ...
