  1. Reuse Support Tools for Automated Constructino of Software Systems

    SBC: Advanced Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Reuse in software engineering is an exciting concept that has yet to be reliably implemented. The number of program subroutines that are truly generic (and therefore applicable across all applications) is limited. However, there are specific applications that are required by many organizations, albeit with a set of constraints specific to each organization. This project proposes to design a too ...

  2. Electromagnetic Resonance Sensors for Determination of Moisture Content in Concrete

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    The overall quality and the comprehensive strength, in particular, of concrete are critically dependent on the water content in the concrete mixture. It is also essential to know if the concrete has reached a stage of moisture equilibrium before surface finishes such as paint or carpet can be applied. At present, no reliable method or easy-to-use instrument exists for determining the moisture co ...

  3. CAD of Non-linear Optical Properties of Thin-film Structures

    SBC: Autometric Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal addresses development of CAD software for simulating non-linear optical materials. The software will provide a virtual lab in which experimental setups are simulated. The proposed software is based on the use of a Maxwell differential equation solver, the Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) method. This numerical method has been developed by numerous researchers since 1968 and no ...

  4. ASSESSING AND INCREASING THE TESTABILITY OF OBJECT-ORIENTED SOFTWARE

    SBC: Cigital, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SOFTWARE HAS BECOME EXPENSIVE; BY THE YEAR 2000, IT REPORTEDLY WILL BE A 2 TRILLION DOLLAR INDUSTRY WORLDWIDE. TO REDUCE COSTS, IT IS VITAL TO REUSE CODE. OBJECT-ORIENTED (00) LANGUAGES ARE TOUTED TODAY FOR THE EASE WITH WHICH SOFTWARE COMPONENTS WRITTEN IN THEM CAN BE REUSED. DUE TO THIS CHARACTERISTIC (ALONG WITH OTHER BENEFITS FO 00 SOFTWARE), SOFTWARE VENDORS ARE BEGINNING TO WRITE CRITICAL AP ...

  5. DIALOG- A Tool for Team Interactive Organizational Learning in the Healthcare Industry

    SBC: Cities, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop DIALOG, an environment for collaborative decision making that will enable health care providers and administrators to model, learn, and reason about their business enterprise. DIALOG will utilize a user-friendly, pen- and gesture-based graphical interface, and will enable "any time/any place" collaboration over shared digital libraries and dynamic "microworld" simulations. ...

  6. Gulliver Miniature Guarded Hot Plate Apparatus

    SBC: Drf R&d, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    It is proposed to develop a miniature guarded hot plate apparatus that can be used to determine the thermal conductivity or thermal resistance of very small specimens (1 to 3 cm square) of thermal insulation materials over a temperature range from at least -40 degrees Celsius to +65 degrees Celsius, with the apparatus having the capability to carry out measurements under controlled environments of ...

  7. Development of a Commercially Viable Equivalence Ratio Meter

    SBC: HUGHES ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    A combustion environment can be described by a characteristic fuel-to-air ratio normalized by the stoichiometric fuel-to-air ratio, otherwise defined as an equivalence ratio, _. The equivalence ratio is used extensively in a wide range of combustion fields from fundamental flame studies, to full-scale fire testing, to power plant operations. There have been basically two methods for calculating ...

  8. Development of an On-Line Density Measurement Technique for Fluid Flow with a 0.001% Accuracy

    SBC: HY-Tech Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    The accurate measurement of fluid densities flowing in pipes is important for custodial monitoring of valuable and/or controlled substances. Most on-line fluid flow meters require independent determination of the fluid density while Coriolis type meters, which directly measure the fluid mass, are off-lie devices. HY-Tech is proposing to develop a laser based diagnostic techique for measuring the ...

  9. Advanced Ultrafast Modelocked Diode Laser System as a Source for Nonlinear Optical Devices

    SBC: Laser Ionics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research is intended to be a major step in the development of a modelocked diode laser system, capable of replacing several expensive and complex components used in seeding of OPO, OPA, and OPG, with direct applications in non-linear optical diagnostics. The company has successfully demonstrated a modelocked diode laser system which features hybird modelocking and produces 100 picojo ...

  10. Synthesis of Ultrafine Silicon Carbide

    SBC: Materials Modifications Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Nanosize, non-oxide ceramic powders such as silicon carbide and its composites, are desirable for use as components in high-power microelectronic devices and tubes, sensors, optical mirrors, filters, nozzles, panels and sheets in many energy related applications. The properties required for these applications include high-temperature strength, high thermal conductivity, low thermal expansion, lig ...
