  1. DEVELOPMENT OF MODULAR, HIGH PERFORMANCE FLUIDIC COMPONENTS FOR VENTILATION CONTROL IN NUCLEAR FACILITIES

    SBC: DEFENSE RESEARCH TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    VENTILATION SYSTEMS FOR NUCLEAR FACILITIES MUST HAVE VERY HIGH RELIABILITY AND EFFECTIVENESS. FLUIDIC VORTEX AMPLIFIERS, EJECTOR PUMPS AND OTHER TYPE OF COMPONENTS OFFERTHE HIGHEST DEGREE OF RELIABILITY IN THESE VENTILATION SYSTEM APPLICATIONS BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO-MOVING-PARTS TO WEAR OUT, RELATIVELY FAST RESPONSE, REQUIRE LITTLE OR NO MAINTENANCE AND SOME CASES ARE CHEAPER THAN EQUIVALENT CONVENT ...

  3. NON-INVASIVE, NON CONTACT, MULTICONDUCTOR CURRENT SENSOR

    SBC: Energy Teller Inc.            Topic: N/A

    POWER MEASUREMENT AND CONTROL ARE MAJOR ENERGY MANAGEMENT AND ENERGY CONSERVATION GROWTH INDUSTRIES. NEWLY PATENTED CURRENT TO VOLTAGE TRANSDUCER (CVT) TECHNOLOGY IS SMALLER, SAFER AND LESS EXPENSIVE THAN CTS. IN ADDITION, THIS NON-CONTACT CVT MONITORS CURRENT IN MULTICONDUCTOR CABLES NON-INVASIVELY--CTS CANNOT. RESEARCH IS NEEDED TO EXPAND THE UNDERSTANDING, EASE OF APPLICATION AND ACCURACY OF TH ...

  4. A GAS-FIRED LIQUEFIER FOR NATURAL GAS RECOVERY FROM REMOTE LOCATIONS

    SBC: General Pneumatics Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT CONSISTS OF A MOBILE, SELF-CONTAINED, GAS-FIREDNATURAL GAS LIQUEFIER SYSTEM FOR THE ECONOMIC RECOVERY OF NATURAL GAS FROM "CAPPED" WELLS IN REMOTE LOCATIONS. THE SYSTEM IS AN INNOVATIVE ARRANGEMENT OF MULTIPLE, TRUCK-MOUNTED STIRLING LIQUEFIER MODULES THAT LIQUEFY METHANE FOR RECOVERY FROM THE WELLHEAD GAS WHILE UTILIZING THE HEAVIER FRACTIONS OF THE NATURAL GAS FOR COMBUSTION TO POWE ...

  5. DEVELOPMENT OF A PULSED MHD SOURCE FOR ELECTROMAGNETIC SOUNDING

    SBC: Hmj Corp.            Topic: N/A

    INFORMATION OBTAINED FROM THE MEASUREMENT OF THE ELECTRICAL CONDUCTIVITY OF THE EARTH'S CRUST IS OF GREAT VALUE IN THE EXPLORATION FOR AND THE DELINEATION OF RESOURCES. THIS INFORMATION CAN ALSO SIGNIFICANTLY ENHANCE UNDERSTANDING OF THE EVOLUTION OF THE CRUST, ITS CURRENT COMPOSITION AND STRUCTURE, AND THE FORCES WITHIN IT. THE PREFERRED METHOD OF ELECTROMAGNETIC SOUNDING (EMS) IS TO INDUCE AN EL ...

  6. CRYOGENICALLY COOLED CONTROLLED SWITCH FOR SPACE POWER CONDITIONING

    SBC: Hmj Corp.            Topic: N/A

    A SOLID STATE SWITCH FOR OPERATION AT CRYOGENIC TEMPERATURE IS BEING DEVELOPED THAT WILL PROVIDE MULTI-MEGAWATT POWER CONDITIONING IN THE RAPIDLY EXPANDING FIELD OF LOW TEMPERATURE ELECTRONICS. SINCE EXISTING CONTROLLED SWITCHES ARE NOT DIRECTLY SUITABLE FOR CRYOGENIC OPERATION, ONLY A FUNDAMENTAL APPROACH CAN DEVELOP STRUCTURES CAPABLE OF LOW LOSS AND RELIABLE OPERATION IN THE TEMPERATURE RANGE B ...

  7. AN ADVANCED CONCEPT FOR COST-EFFECTIVE PRESSURIZED FLUIDIZED BED COMBUSTION SYSTEMS

    SBC: Manufacturing And Technology Conversion Int'l, Inc            Topic: N/A

    MTCI'S ALTERNATIVE SECOND-GENERATION ADVANCED PFBC CONCEPT EMPLOYS A PULSE COMBUSTION-BASED COMBUSTOR ISLAND IN THE TOPPING CYCLE. THE PULSE COMBUSTOR ACTS AS A VITIATED AIR BURNER AND SERVES TO INCREASE THE FLUE GAS TEMPERATURE FROM ABOUT 1600 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT AT THE EXIT OF THE PFBC TO ABOUT 2000 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT AT THE INLET TO THE GAS TURBINE. THE COMBUSTOR ISLAND INCLUDES A COMBINED SULFU ...

  8. AN ADVANCED OIL SHALE RETORTING TECHNOLOGY FOR SYNCRUDE OIL

    SBC: Manufacturing And Technology Conversion Int'l, Inc            Topic: N/A

    SYNCRUDE OIL OBTAINED BY RETORTING OIL SHALE REPRESENTS A POTENTIAL SOURCE OF FUEL AND CHEMICAL FEEDSTOCK. THE EXTENT OF TOTAL U.S. RESOURCES GREATER THAN 15 GALLONS OF SYNCRUDE OIL PER TON OF OIL SHALE IS ESTIMATED TO BE 2.5 TRILLION BBL. THE STATE-OF-THE-ART OIL SHALE RETORTING TECHNOLOGY IS NOT ECONOMIC BECAUSE OF A NUMBER OF FACTORS, INCLUDING THE LACK OF A VIABLE ABOVE-GROUND RETORTING PROCES ...

  9. THE DEVELOPMENT OF RADIATION-RESISTANT COPPER MATRIX COMPOSITES

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    IMPROVED COPPER ALLOYS ARE DESIRED FOR RADIATION-RESISTANT HIGH HEAT-FLUX COMPONENTS AND FIRST-WALL STRUCTURES IN FUSION ENERGY SYSTEMS. SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENT IN COPPER ALLOYS WHICH ARE ALSO RADIATION RESISTANT CANNOT BE PROJECTED. HOWEVER, COPPER MATRIX COMPOSITES CAN BE PROJECTED TO INCREASE STRENGTH AND STIFFNESS OF 4-5 TIMES THAT OF ALLOY SYSTEMS AS WELL AS REDUCE DENSITY AND UP TO DOUBLE TH ...

  10. A NEW PROBE FOR MEASURING LIQUID LEVELS IN PYROCHEMICAL PROCESSING

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    THIS PHASE I PROJECT UTILIZES THE CORROSION RESISTANCE AND ELECTRICAL PROPERTIES OF CERTAIN ADVANCED MATERIALS IN THE DESIGN OF PROBES TO SENSE LIQUID LEVELS AT MOLTEN METAL-SALTINTERFACES AND MOLTEN SALT-GAS INTERFACES. ONE OF THE MORE SUCCESSFUL APPLICATIONS OF ADVANCED HIGH TECHNOLOGY MATERIALS RESEARCH IS IN THE PYROCHEMICAL PROCESSING OF SPENT NUCLEAR FUEL. IN PARTICULAR, SEVERAL MATERIALS HA ...
