  1. High Fidelity Computational Models for Aggregated Tissue Interaction in Surgical Simulations

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DHP16A001

    Surgical simulations aiming to support surgeon practices and medical education have attracted enormous research effort over the last two decades. However, the physical reality, especially on simulating aggregated tissue interaction, is still unsatisfactory. In this proposed work, an open source surgery simulation framework, SoFMIS, will be utilized and enhanced with tissue interaction models to a ...

  2. Low-Cost, High-Accuracy, Whole-Building Carbon Dioxide Monitoring for Demand Control Ventilation

    SBC: DIOXIDE MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: 11

    The objective of the proposed work is to develop, demonstrate, and evaluate new technologies for low-cost, high-accuracy, whole-building CO2 monitoring for demand control ventilation. The work builds on a private/public partnership formed between Dioxide MaterialsTM and the Institute for Sensing and Embedded Network Systems Engineering (I-SENSE) at Florida Atlantic University. In previous, NSF-sup ...

  3. Development of Low Cost Magnetocaloric Nanomaterials for Sub 80oK Refrigeration Applications

    SBC: GENERAL ENGINEERING & RESEARCH, L.L.C.            Topic: 12

    Replacement of petroleum based vehicles with fuel cell electric vehicles operating on hydrogen produced from domestically available resources would dramatically decrease emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants as well as reduce dependence on oil from politically volatile regions of the world. One major inhibitor to a hydrogen society is the lack of infrastructure, which requires hydroge ...

  4. Economical Self-Powered Portable Clean Energy Desalination System

    SBC: ITN ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 09

    Many communities face water scarcity as a fundamental challenge to their economic and social development. Seawater is an abundant source which can be reached by most of the countries in the world. In order to utilize seawater as potable water, it is required to remove the high salinity. Desalination technologies are intended for the removal of dissolved salts that cannot be removed by conventional ...

  5. Bio-inspired Macromolecules Containing Atomically Precise Catalytic Active Sites

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: 09

    High selectivity in chemical reactions is the key to reducing costs, energy consumption and emissions in chemical processing. More selective and active catalysts will reduce the need for recovering unreacted chemicals for recycle and removing byproducts. Reducing the burden on separation processes will greatly reduce the energy required for chemical production. We propose to design macromolecular ...

  6. High Performance Carbon Materials and Fuels from Cold Plasma Catalysis of Natural Gas

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: 09

    Despite the dramatic growth of natural gas resources, methane (the major component in natural gas) is underutilized as a feedstock for the production of chemicals and liquid fuels. Currently, methane conversion relies on an indirect two-step gas-to-liquid (GTL) technology. This process is energy intensive and has high operating costs. We propose to develop a new approach to directly convert methan ...

  7. Optimal Integrated Control of Grid-Connected PV Generation and On-site Load

    SBC: NHU Energy, Inc.            Topic: 13

    Maximizing the value proposition for solar and distributed energy resources to consumers requires a more integrated and coordinated approach to utilizing these resources on-site. Commercial solutions are not yet widely available to provide optimal use of combined on-site resources locally, while at the same time optimizing their value to the electric power distribution system as well. Solutions st ...

  8. Micro-electrocatalytic Upgrading of Carbon Dioxide to Hydrocarbons

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: 18

    Statement of the problem or situation that is being addressed in your application. Coal-generated power represents a major source of electrical generation in the Nation, and will likely remain so for the foreseeable future. However, recently proposed limits on CO2 emissions from new electrical generation capacity will necessitate carbon capture functions to be installed on any new coal-fired power ...

  9. Organic-Inorganic Hybrid Nanocomposite as Radiation-resistant Electrical Insulator

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: 20

    The Department of Energy needs improved radiation resistant electrical insulation materials for the superconducting magnet coils in fusion reactors. To achieve safe, reliable, economic and environmentally benign fusion energy system, DOE is seeking organic/inorganic insulation-capable materials that are wrappable. These materials under irradiation will enable magnet coils to: (1) operate reliably ...

  10. High Gradient Accelerating Structure for Low Energy Protons

    SBC: RadiaBeam Systems, LLC            Topic: 25

    Currently, the most promising types of radiotherapy is proton or carbon therapy, as they have demonstrated significant improvements in clinical efficiency and reduced toxicity profiles. Unfortunately, the high cost of treatments using both proton and carbon beams is the limiting factor preventing hadron therapy from becoming the standard of care for a wider range of cancers. Designing a linear acc ...
