  1. Integrated Membrane Reactor for Enhancing Thermal & Chemical Reactors

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 06c

    With development of shale gas fracking, large amounts of methane and ethane have now become available at low cost. With this low cost ethane it is desirable to convert low cost ethane to high value ethylene. Oxidative dehydrogenation (ODH) for low cost conversion of ethane to ethylene is a potentially attractive route. ODH is an exothermic process for converting ethane to ethylene. By contrast pro ...

  2. P2P Transactions with Demand Flexibility for Increasing Solar Utilization

    SBC: Qcoefficient Inc            Topic: 12c

    As installations of solar photovoltaics continue to soar, addressing the integration challenges that arise from high penetrations of solar will be paramount to achieving the SunShot Initiative 2030 goals of $0.03/kWh to $0.05/kWh levelized cost of electricity (LCOE). Specific challenges related to system ramping and over-generation tend to degrade the value of PV, and solutions are needed to addre ...

  4. Non-collinear Wave-front Curvature Range Measurement

    SBC: MIKEL, INC.            Topic: N02025

    The goal of this Phase II SBIR is to extract more information from existing submarine acoustic sensors through a highly innovative inter- and intra-sensor correlation algorithmic, in order to provide U.S. submarines with increased acoustic superiority over increasingly quiet adversaries. U.S. adversaries are continuously improving their acoustic quieting technologies through efforts such as marine ...

  5. NEMoSys: A Platform for Autonomous Mesh Refinement and Solution Verification

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: 29d

    Significant amounts of time and resources are spent generating and maintaining meshes for modeling and simulation by engineers and scientists in industry, government, and academia. Beyond mesh generation, one major problem complex multiphysics software, such as those used in nuclear energy software, currently faces is the complex transfer of quantities between meshes during high-performance simula ...

  6. Am-Be Replacement with Tunable Neutron Spectra

    SBC: Starfire Industries LLC            Topic: 02c

    241Am-Be(α,n) radiochemical neutron sources are used for geophysical well logging serving groundwater, mining, geotechnical, environmental and research users—as well as the major Oil/Gas industries. There is an urgent need to prevent intentional or accidental diversion and/or use as a radiological dispersal device. It is difficult to track/safeguard these materials with ~9,000 active sources fo ...

  8. Development of Novel Mesoporous Substrates for a Stable Liquid-metal Plasma-material Interface under Ultra Long-pulse Plasmas

    SBC: Energy Driven Technologies, LLC            Topic: 20d

    One daunting challenge facing future plasma burning fusion reactors is the extreme conditions that plasma facing components are exposed to. Extreme particle and heat fluxes exceeding 10-20 MW/m2 drive traditional material surfaces out of equilibrium and induce topographical and compositional changes that can have deleterious effects on the plasma edge and, ultimately, the confinement of fusion pla ...

  9. Data-Driven Integration of High Fidelity Fluid Dynamics into Systems Codes for Design and Safety Applications

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: 33d

    Computational fluid dynamics methods have found increasing use in high fidelity modeling of complex systems, particularly within nuclear power systems. For example, the phenomenon of thermal stratification in a sodium-cooled fast reactor under natural circulation conditions is resolvable with computational fluid dynamics, but not traditional system-level models. The high accuracy of computational ...

  10. Topic 13d: Combustion Geometry Optimization to Increase Alcohol-Fueled MCCI Efficiency

    SBC: ClearFlame Engines, Inc.            Topic: 13d

    Diesel engines are critical to modern economies—moving 70% of the nation’s goods—but they remain coupled to the need for petroleum-based Diesel fuel, which presents challenges. Diesel fuel prices are volatile (creating uncertainty about the fuel’s long-term economics), while the need for oil drives demand for imports. Emissions are challenging as well, as heavy-duty Diesel engines generate ...
