  1. LASER-BASED ULTRASONIC EXCITATION AND SPECKLE INTERFEROMETRIC DETECTION SYSTEMS FOR NONDESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION OF HIGH-TEMPERATURE CERAMICS

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    THE USE OF ADVANCED MATERIALS SUCH AS CERAMICS, CERAMIC COMPOSITES, AND HIGH TEMPERATURE COATINGS HAS LED TO IMPROVED PERFORMANCE OF CRITICAL HEAT ENGINE AND ENERGY-RELATED COMPONENTS AND SYSTEMS. HOWEVER, THE REQUIREMENTS FOR NONDESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION (NDE) OF CERAMIC MATERIALS RESULTING FROM COMPLEX GEOMETRY, INHOMOGENEITY, REDUCED FLAW SIZE, AND ADVERSE PROCESSING ENVIRONMENTS HAVE PRODUCED LON ...

  3. 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 ...

  5. A FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR A SEISMIC EARLY WARNING SYSTEM FOR NUCLEAR POWER PLANT SHUTDOWN

    SBC: ENSCO Inc            Topic: N/A

    A FEASIBILITY STUDY WILL BE CONDUCTED OF A SEISMIC SCRAM-PROCESSING SYSTEM IN WHICH P WAVES FROM LARGE EARTHQUAKES ARE DETECTED AND ANALYZED IN TIME TO INITIATE A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT CORE SHUTDOWN BEFORE THE ARRIVAL OF LARGE, DAMAGING SHEAR WAVE PHASES. A PROTOTYPE SEISMIC SCRAM-MONITORING SYSTEM WILL BE DESIGNED AND IMPLEMENTED ON A SUN 3/160 ENGINEERING WORKSTATION. IN THE PROPOSED SYSTEM, SEISM ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. INVESTIGATION OF FATIGUE FAILURE INITIATION AND PROPAGATION IN WIND-TURBINE-GRADE WOOD/EPOXY LAMINATE CONTAINING SEVERALVENEER JOINT STYLES

    SBC: GOUGEON BROTHERS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    FROM THE NASA/DOE MOD OA WIND ENERGY RESEARCH PROGRAM CAME THE FINDING THAT LAMINATED WOOD/EXPOSY COMPOSITE IS A LOW-COST CONSTRUCTION MATERIAL THAT MAY WITHSTAND THE LONGTERM SEVERE FATIGUE ENVIRONMENT OF THE ADVANCED WIND TURBINE BLADE. INCREASED ERRICIENCY AND RELIABILITY REQUIREMENTS PLACED ON THE NEXT GENERATION OF WIND MACHINES WILL CHALLENGE DESIGNERS, DEMANDING THEIR UNDERSTANDING OF THE M ...
