  1. Automated Solver Selection for Nuclear Engineering Simulations

    SBC: RNET TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 32d

    An important objective of the NEAMS program is to enable widespread use of the software tools among the industry, academia, and regulatory communities. For solving the problems occurring at various stages of NEAMS simulations, typically there are several possible choices for numerical subroutines. Furthermore, the best method for a numerical problem may also evolve over the course of the simulatio ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. High Density Interconnects for the HL-LHC

    SBC: ADVANCED RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 28

    This proposal addresses a pressing need in the detector development community within experimental high energy physics (HEP). The HEP community has been involved in the development of highly segmented and miniaturized detection elements ever since silicon strip detectors were first invented in the late 1970s. Various experiments have employed silicon detectors in a variety of readout configurations ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Repair of Materials Degradation in Light Water Reactor Components

    SBC: UES SERVICES INC            Topic: 08c

    Corrosion induced degradation of material components in the harsh environment of light water reactor can impact reactor reliability, availability, safe operation and eventually life. A possible remedy could be to replace the replaceable components at appropriate moments which may not be economically favorable. Thus there is a need to develop technologies to repair degraded materials. STATEMENT OF ...

  10. Carbon and energy capture from biogas for the production of biochemicals

    SBC: Sasya LLC            Topic: 11b

    In order to curb America’s dependence on petroleum and increase reliance on domestic, alternative sources of energy, there is a strong emphasis on using biogas. There is still a significant potential in developing biogas as a resource not only for energy, but also for chemicals. In this proposal, Sasya will demonstrate how biogas could be used to produce energy and chemicals. We propose a simple ...
