The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. CRYSTALLOGRAPHY OF CERAMIC PARTICULATE IN METAL-MATRIX COMPOSITES

    SBC: Advanced Microscopy Techniques            Topic: N/A

    METAL-PARTICULATE INTERFACES HAVE A MAJOR IMPACT ON THE PROPERTIES OF CERAMIC-REINFORCED METAL-MATRIX COMPOSITES. DESIRED INTERFACE CHARACTERISTICS ARE ADHERENCE, MECHANICAL TOUGHNESS AND RESISTANCE TO ENVIRONMENTAL ATTACK. IN TURN, THESE PROPERTIES ARE DICTATED BY SURFACE MORPHOLOGY, CHEMICAL COMPOSITION, SHAPE AND THE PRESENCE OF THIRD PHASES. STEPS MUST BE TAKEN TO CONTROL THE RELEVANT CHARACTE ...

  4. TOPOLOGICAL DATA MODELS FOR OBJECT-ORIENTED EXPERT SYSTEMS

    SBC: Dba Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    RECENT DEVELOPMENTS EMPLOYING KNOWLEDGE BASED EXPERT SYSTEMSWORKING WITH OBJECT-ORIENTED DATA MODELS HAVE DEMONSTRATED THE FEASIBILITY OF AUTOMATING THE CARTOGRAPHIC MAPPING AND CHART PRODUCTION CYCLE. AREAS WHERE CHART PRODUCTION EXPERTSYSTEMS ARE MOST BENEFICIAL ARE: AUTOMATED PLACEMENT OF FEATURE NAMES, MAP GENERALIZATION AT CHANGE OF SCALE, DETECTION AND RESOLUTION OF SYMBOL PLACEMENT CONFLICT ...

  5. ENHANCED REMOVAL OF RADIOACTIVE PARTICLES BY FLUOROCARBON SURFACTANT SOLUTIONS

    SBC: Entropic Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED RESEARCH ADDRESSES THE APPLICATION OF ESI'S ENHANCED PARTICLE REMOVAL TO THE NON-DESTRUCTIVE DECONTAMINATION OF NUCLEAR EQUIPMENT. IN THIS PROCESS, THE PART TO BE CLEANED IS CONTACTED, UNDER CONDITIONS OF SHEAR, WITH A SOLUTION OF A HIGH MOLECULAR WEIGHT FLUOROCARBON SURFACTANT IN AN INERT PERFLUORINATED LIQUID. IT IS THEN RINSED WITH PERFLUORINATED LIQUID AND AIR DRIED. THE PERFLUORI ...
