  2. A HIGH-EFFICIENCY TECHNIQUE FOR STEAMFLOODING DEEP, HEAVY OIL RESERVOIRS

    SBC: Carbotek Inc            Topic: N/A

    A STEAMFLOODING/STEAM GENERATION SYSTEM IS PROPOSED FOR DEEP, HEAVY OIL RESERVOIRS. THIS CONCEPT MINIMIZES THE DOWNHOLE HEAT LOSSES, IMPROVES RELIABILITY AND REDUCES THE COST OF STEAM GENERATION. ITS FEATURES WILL MAKE STEAMING OF VERY DEEP WELLS (BELOW 7500 FEET) TECHNICALLY AND ECONOMICALLY FEASIBLE, AND WILL IMPROVE THE ECONOMICS OF SHALLOWER WELL STEAMFLOODING. THIS NOVEL CONCEPT SUPPLIES HEAT ...

  4. ENZYMES IMMOBILIZED ON GOLD SURFACES

    SBC: Escagenetics Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP A NEW CLASS OF BIOSENSORS BASED ON THE USE OF COLLOIDAL GOLD DIRECTLY OR DEPOSITED AS A POROUS GOLD FILM. THE KEY TO THE APPROACH ISTHE IMMOBILIZATION OF ENZYMES ON GOLD SURFACES THAT PROVIDE FOR HIGHFLUX, HETEROGENEOUS ELECTRON TRANSFER. THE FEASIBILITY OF CONSTRUCTING THIS NEW CLASS OF BIOSENSORS WILL BE EVALUATED BY THE END OF PHASE I. THE OBJECTIVES ...

  5. RAPID MULTIPLE CHOPSTICK WATER SAMPLER

    SBC: General Oceanics Inc            Topic: N/A

    A FREE FALL WATER SAMPLER BASED ON THE CHOPSTICK WATER SAMPLER BAG WILL BE DEVELOPED. THIS PORCUPINE SAMPLER WILL BE CAPABLE OF TAKING UP TO 36 THREE LITER WATER SAMPLES AT DEPTHS CONTROLLED FROM THE SURFACE, OR AT DEPTHS DETERMINED BY AN INTERNAL CONTROLLER. THE SAMPLE WILL BE OPTIMIZED FORMINIMUM TRAVEL TIME FROM THE SURFACE TO THE BOTTOM AND BACK SO THAT THE CURRENT FOUR HOUR ON STATION TIME FO ...

  6. A MICROCOMPUTER-BASED DNA GEL ELECTROPHORESIS IMAGE ANALYSIS

    SBC: Genetics Data Services Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT IS TO DESIGN AND CONSTRUCT A MICROCOMPUTER-BASED INSTRUMENT FOR QUANTITATING SIZE DISTRIBUTIONS OF NUCLEIC ACIDS (DNA AND RNA) SEPARATED ACCORDING TO SIZE BY GEL ELECTROPHORESIS. THE STARTING POINT FOR ANALYSIS OF FLUORESCENCE-STAINED DNA IN GELS WILL BE THE IMAGE DIGITIZATION OF THE ENTIRE GEL ELECTROPHORETIC PATTERN (OR SPECIFIED PORTIONS OF IT) SO THAT THE RELATIVE INTENSITIES OF F ...

  7. METHODS OF REDUCTION OF WIND-INDUCED DYNAMIC RESPONSE IN SOLAR CONCENTRATORS AND OTHER SMALL LIGHTWEIGHT STRUCTURES

    SBC: Lajet Energy Co            Topic: N/A

    RECENT WIND TUNNEL STUDIES ON SOLAR CONCENTRATOR STRUCTURES INDICATE THAT STRUCTURES WITH LOW DAMPING PROPERTIES ARE POTENTIALLY SUSCEPTIBLE TO THE SPECTRAL NATURE OF ATMOSPHERIC WIND LOADING. SOLAR CONCENTRATORS ARE SENSITIVE TO DEFLECTIONS IN OPTICAL MOUNTING AND TRACKING SYSTEMS; CONSEQUENTLY, STRUCTURES AND DRIVES WITH SUFFICIENT RIGIDITY TO RESIST DYNAMICALLY INDUCED LOADING WITH MINIMAL DEFL ...

  8. DOSIMETRY AND MONITORING OF AROMATIC AMINES

    SBC: Perfect View Inc.            Topic: N/A

    UP TO 35,000 WORKERS OF THE U.S. CHEMICAL INDUSTRY AND MORE THAN 270,000 WORKERS IN THE PETROLEUM AND COAL-RELATED INDUSTRIES MAY BE EXPOSED DAILY TO CARCINOGENIC AND MUTANOGENIC COMPOUNDS FROM THE AROMATIC AMINE GROUP. COAL GAS, INC. DEVELOPED A VERY SIMPLE HIGH-TECHNOLOGY APPROACH TO MONITORING THE EXPOSURE OF PERSONNEL TO TRACE LEVELS OF POLLUTANTS AND IS PROPOSING TO CONDUCT R & D WHICH WILL E ...

  9. SHORT-LIVED ISOTOPE TECHNOLOGY FOR EVALUATING PLANT GENOTYPE RESPONSES TO DROUGHT AND CO2 STRESSES

    SBC: Phytoresource Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    MODERN BREEDING, GENETIC ENGINEERING, AND BIO-TECHNOLOGIES, OFFER REMARKABLE POTENTIAL FOR IMPROVED PERFORMANCE OF STRESS TOLERANT CROP PLANTS. THESE METHODS, HOWEVER HAVE OFTEN PRODUCED PLANTS REQUIRING GREATER INPUTS OF WATER, NUTRIENTS, PEST CONTROL, ENERGY, AND MANAGEMENT COSTS. TO AVOID SUCH FALSE "IMPROVEMENTS" WILL REQUIRE TECHNIQUES TO EVALUATE BASIC PHYSIOLOGICAL STRESS RSPONSE MECHANISMS ...

  10. FORCE REFLECTION EFFECTS ON OPERATOR PERFORMANCE OF REMOTE MAINTENANCE AND INSPECTION SYSTEMS FOR NUCLEAR FACILITIES

    SBC: REINHART & ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    ROBOTIC MACHINES THAT DUPLICATE THE MANIPULATIVE SKILLS OF AHUMAN OPERATOR ARE CRITICALLY NEEDED IN COMMERCIAL NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS TO REDUCE OPERATOR EXPOSURE IN HIGH-RADIATION AREAS. ROBOTIC SYSTEMS WITH FORCE REFLECTION (FORCE INFORMATION REFLECTED THROUGH A CONTROL JOYSTICK) AND THREE-DIMENSIONAL VISUAL FEEDBACK CAN IMPROVE TASK PERFORMANCE AND REDUCE FATIGUE. THIS RESEARCH PROJECT WILL USE A ...
