  1. TTDAQ: A Continuous Flow, Timing and Trigger DAQ System

    SBC: Telluric Labs LLC            Topic: 28b

    The nuclear physics data acquisition systems are challenged by the increasing demand for flexibility, accuracy, volume of data and processing speed, massive scalability, upgradability, and lower acquisition operations and maintenance costs. General precision timing synchronization for all Detector and DAQ components provides novel and original solutions to these problems especially if it can be ac ...

  2. Asynchronous Many Task Fast Exascale Visualizer- AMT FEVER

    SBC: JMSI INC.            Topic: 07a

    The simulations on which we depend must adapt to changing hardware to run at exascale. The Asynchronous Many Task (AMT) model is a viable alternative to existing techniques and has numerous advantages. In situ data visualization and analysis remains an important fixture of computing for exascale so these algorithms must be expressed in terms of AMT so they will be compatible with emerging computin ...

  3. Mixed Metal Oxide Catalysts for the Production of Aromatic Derivatives

    SBC: Exelus, Inc.            Topic: 22a

    Aromatics are the main building blocks for petrochemical products and intermediates. With the majority of US crackers switching to natural gas liquids, aromatics supply from crackers has fallen in recent years. In 2017, US imported more than 1.8 million tons of benzene mainly due to the shift to a very light feedstock (mainly ethane) in steam crackers. As a result, the aromatics industry will be i ...

  4. SCOREBOARD: The Management and Creation of In Situ Data Extractions and Computational Steering at Exascale Through HPC-FV

    SBC: JMSI INC.            Topic: 03b

    With in situ data management favoring workflows composed of multiple simulations and analyses connected in transit on heterogeneous machines, scientists and engineers need for a tool that enables them to create data extracts, visualizations, and interactively monitor and steer their simulations. JMSI is developing SCOREBOARD, an easy to use library for data extract production and simulation monito ...

  5. Revisiting Pipe Component Design

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: 33j

    Under recent economic pressures, the nuclear power industry has explored options to reduce costs and increase electricity generation. One overlooked area where lost power output can be recaptured and attendant problems (e.g., flow-induced vibration) addressed is the main steam piping system. The technology underlying this system is essentially over a 100 years old, and incentives to improve pipe c ...

  6. Development of nickel rich and concentration gradient cathode materials for high energy density and long cycle-life lithium ion batteries using controlled micro-aerosol pyrolysis

    SBC: HIT NANO, INC.            Topic: 13a

    Lithium ion batteries (LIBs) are promising candidates for next-generation energy storage and electrified transportation systems. However, continuous growth of cobalt price, low energy density, short lifetime, and high propensity in fire accidents of LIBs creates a big challenge to renewable electricity production and electrification of transportation. Therefore, there is an urgent need to develop ...

  7. Zero discharge desalination with mineral recovery using multiple-effect vapor adsorption

    SBC: GreenBlu, Inc.            Topic: 17a

    Desalination is a key tool to address the global water scarcity crisis. Current technologies cannot meet the need for desalination due to high energy demands and toxic brine discharge. For example, global electricity production would need to increase by 5% to power current desalination plants. No commercially viable solutions exist for treating brine, therefore is often discharged into the environ ...

  8. Hardening Advanced Methods for Predicting 3D Unsteady Flows Around Wind Turbines for Industrial Use

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: 02c

    Wind power plays an increasingly important role in satisfying the power needs of the United States. With increased market penetration, unanticipated unsteady loading induced failures, installation related reductions in power generation and significant maintenance costs have underscored the need to predict the unsteady fluid structure interactions related to turbine layout and off-design wind condi ...

  9. HYPERTUNNEL- A MR/VR Remote Collaboration System

    SBC: FactualVR, Inc.            Topic: 05a

    An important challenge electric utilities will face in the foreseeable future is a workforce that is rapidly retiring and the resulting loss of institutional knowledge.This will also create a vulnerability in the electric grid, especially during widespread power outages where recovery efforts rely on a team of well-trained and experienced personnel.Disasters like Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico hig ...

  10. Development of a Wind Turbine Blade Surface Coating to Reduce Damage due to Lightning

    SBC: AQUANIS, INC.            Topic: 14b

    Every year, the global wind industry loses an estimated $100M or more to damage caused by lightning.A new blade coating will reduce the damage to wind turbine blades caused by lightning by promoting the formation of ionization channels over the surface of the turbine blades, providing a safe external path for lightning energy to reach ground and preventing damaging blade punctures.The coating cons ...
