  5. Real-Time In-Situ Measurement of Void Fraction and Specific Surface in Fresh Concrete

    SBC: Creare LLC            Topic: 171FH2

    Water expansion during freeze-thaw cycles can cause deterioration in concrete, leading to scaling, cracking, and crumbling over a period of years. Resistance to this damage is achieved with a system of voids formed by adding surfactants to the fresh concrete to stabilize air bubbles naturally entrained during mixing. The volume fraction, size, and spacing of these voids are critical. It is importa ...

  6. RailMonitor: Real-Time Broken Rail Detection System

    SBC: Creare LLC            Topic: 171FR2

    Broken rails are a common cause of mainline derailments and a particular concern given the increasing use of our rail system for passenger traffic and petroleum products. The progressive nature of the defects provides an opportunity for early detection of cracks before they become significant enough to cause a derailment. Unfortunately, current inspection technology does not allow these inspection ...

  7. Improved Thermal and Acoustic Comfort for Motorcycle Helmets

    SBC: Creare LLC            Topic: 151NH1

    Use of motorcycles helmets significantly reduces the risk of fatality or serious brain injury to riders in the event of a crash, but riders often do not wear helmets in warm weather because of thermal discomfort. We propose to develop an innovative ventilation and cooling system that will maintain a cool, dry environment inside the helmet while also meeting applicable safety standards. The key the ...

  9. Topic 16a- Low-Cost Desalination System Driven by Hydrokinetic Power

    SBC: Creare LLC            Topic: 16a

    Ocean and tidal currents contain a huge amount of power that is currently untapped. This power could be used very efficiently to desalinate water for water-poor regions located near coastlines. A major obstacle is the high cost of manufacturing and deployment of ocean systems. We propose an innovative new technology that can dramatically reduce the manufacturing and deployment costs of hydrokineti ...
