  2. 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 ...

  3. Fidelity Enhancement of Nuclear Power Plant Simulators Utilizing High Fidelity Simulation Predictions


    Accurate simulation of nuclear power plant behavior is necessary for both engineering and training applications. An engineering grade simulator, used for design, safety analysis and operations, is characterized by high fidelity, computational power, lack of real-time capability, and user non-interactive environment. By contrast, a training grade simulator, used for operator training and education, ...

  4. Advanced Mechanical Testing System for Highly Irradiated Materials

    SBC: Product Innovation And Engineering, LLC            Topic: 32a

    This project will research and develop an Advanced Mechanical Test (AMT) system to perform comprehensive, high throughput, automatic mechanical characterization using miniature tensile specimens for highly irradiated materials. The solution should aid in a dramatic reduction of irradiated material waste, remote operation within hot cell environments, and stochastic characterization. It can also be ...

  5. Development of a High Throughput Algal Dewatering System Using Magnetic Particles

    SBC: Manta Biofuel, LLC            Topic: 12c

    Algal biofuels hold the promise of directly replacing fossil fuels through domestic production of renewable gasoline, diesel fuel and jet fuel. Before algae can be converted to fuel it must be harvested and concentrated 400-fold, however, no commercial technology can perform this step cheaply enough to allow economic production of fuel from algae. The lack of a low cost algal harvesting technology ...

  6. Real-Time Canister Welding Health Monitoring and Prediction System for Spent Fuel Dry Storage

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 34b

    Storage of spent nuclear fuel (SNF) is occurring for longer periods than initially intended. It is important to assess the lifetime extension of dry storage canisters (DSC) with the ability to accurately monitor and predict material degradation so that corrective maintenance actions can be taken. The possibility of chloride-induced stress corrosion cracking (CISCC) in welded stainless-steel DSC fo ...

  7. A Novel Full Matrix Capture Ultrasonic Imaging System for Non-Radioisotopic Inspections

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 04b

    Radiographic techniques are widely used in non-destructive evaluation (NDE) applications to perform inspections and detect flaws and cracks in component materials. While popular, such techniques pose operational safety risks as well as security risks due to the use of radioisotopic materials. Therefore, the DOE has a goal of reducing dependence on commercial and industrial radioactive materials fo ...

  8. 1b Physical layer Authentication of Wired Networks (PAWN)


    The convergence of operational technology and information technology systems has left many critical infrastructure deployments vulnerable to cyber attack. Defensive guidelines from organizations such as the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology call for the implementation of device authentication. However, there are no technologies currently available to provide device authentication ...

  9. Development of Radiation Endurance Ultrasonic Transducer for Nuclear Reactors

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 33a

    Nuclear system plays an important part in today’s technology advances. Nuclear systems are used in power generation, defense and national security. With such, there is demand of sensor which can help in reliably running the nuclear system and prevent catastrophe. In high radiation field, most of the sensor systems show degradation and under failure, therefore reliability of sensor performance is ...
