  1. VnV: A Self Documenting Testing Framework for In-situ Verification and Validation in High Performance Computing Applications

    SBC: RNET TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 30d

    Verification and Validation (V&V) of numerical simulations is a discrete process that cannot realistically account for every possibility.This causes issues in general purpose simulation packages because, while it is the responsibility of the developers to ensure the product is mathematically correct, it is the responsibility of the end-user to ensure the solution is a suitable representation of th ...

  2. Electro-dewatering of Cellulosic Nanomaterials

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: 06b

    Cellulosic nanomaterials exhibit great potential in various applications due to unique properties.Abundant availability of feedstock has led to the industrialization of manufacturing processes to produce them.A significant cost-limiting factor to utilize cellulosic nanomaterials is dewatering or drying of nanocellulosic suspension.Technologies are needed to enable solid-liquid separation associate ...

  3. Ultra-High Gradient Travelling-Wave Gun

    SBC: EUCLID TECHLABS, LLC            Topic: 23b

    High brightness beams enable novel applications like x-ray free electron lasers and ultrafast electron microscopes.High brightness beams essentially consist of a large number of electrons in a small phase space volume, i.e.a high peak current.When such beams are generated from the cathode, there is a strong space charge force, which elongates the bunch and reduces its brightness.An optimal solutio ...

  4. Coal-Core Composites for Low Cost, Light Weight, Fire-Resistant Panels and Roofing Materials

    SBC: Semplastics EHC LLC            Topic: 18c

    Two main problems are targeted by the proposed work: (1) the underutilization of coal, a valuable natural resource, has led to a catastrophic drop in employment within the coal industry ecosystem in specific geographic areas in the country; and (2) the need within the insurance-driven roof replacement market for a suitable, light weight, low cost, high durability roofing material.These problems wi ...

  5. Solar Array Racking System

    SBC: ACME EXPRESS, INC.            Topic: 12d

    Current solar module racking installation systems are multicomponent and require pre-ordering, transporting, inventorying, and labor-intensive deployment.There is an opportunity to automate installation, especially in the case of flat-roof commercial and ground-based arrays, to decrease racking costs by almost 30%.The proposed automated racking system produces the rack from raw material, on-demand ...

  6. Non-Invasive Operations Tool for Dispatchable Geothermal Wells

    SBC: TECH4IMAGING LLC            Topic: 11b

    Geothermal energy is a nearly inexhaustible renewable and clean energy resource.The benefits of geothermal energy include high base load, dispatchability, and long-term stability of geothermal wells under exploitation.However, lack of information on how wells should be properly balanced between production and artificial replenishing puts wells at risk of being over exploited, which can permanently ...

  7. Hydrothermal Liquefaction of Food Waste and Remediation of Aqueous Byproducts


    Thermochemical processing via hydrothermal liquefaction (HTL) is capable of processing a broad range of feedstocks, has a favorable net energy ratio, and produces an energy-dense liquid biooil product.However, there is an obstacle with current HTL processes that has hampered the adoption of this technology—the HTL process produces a considerable amount of aqueous organic byproducts and HTL oil r ...

  8. 21a: Low Temperature Reduction of Rare Earth Metals using Ionic Liquids

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: 21a

    This proposal describes development of a low temperature deposition process for the direct production of rare earth metals from rare earth oxides found in coal byproducts. This process provides a low energy alternative to the state-of-the-art for recovery of a valuable resources found in waste products (i.e. coal ash). Rare earth metals are commercially important and used in a variety of end produ ...

  9. Topic: 31d Title: 3D Diamond Detector for High-Rate Charged Particle Tracking

    SBC: Euclid Beamlabs, LLC            Topic: 31d

    Detectors for very rare phenomena in high-intensity experiments require extreme precision of charged particle tracking at low momenta in sub-100 MeV/c range. This necessitates ultra-low mass design that corresponds to very thin detector thickness. In addition, the particle collision rates in future high-intensity experiments will increase by approximately one order of magnitude, imposing severe ra ...

  10. Doping with hafnium to create pinning centers to refine A15 grain size in Nb3Sn conductors

    SBC: HYPER TECH RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 29a

    This proposal is submitted in response to the SBIR/STTR High Energy Physics Topic 29(a), “Superconductor Technologies for Particle Accelerators, (a) High-Field Superconducting Wire Technologies for Magnets”. Grant applications are sought to develop new or improved superconducting wire for high field magnets that operate at 16 Tesla (T) field and higher. The need is for strands that operate at ...
