  2. Health Monitoring of Digital I&C Systems Using Online Electromagnetic Measurements

    SBC: ANALYSIS AND MEASUREMENT SERVICES CORPORATION            Topic: 30a

    Instrumentation and control systems in nuclear power plants are made of an assembly of analog and/or digital components which together emit a unique electromagnetic signature that relates to the condition of the whole assembly.This signature can therefore be recorded, analyzed, and tracked to determine the condition and health of instrumentation and control systems.This is very important to the nu ...

  3. Very High Field Hybrid Superconducting Magnet Using Bi-2212

    SBC: Cryomagnetics, Inc.            Topic: 26b

    High energy physics research, modern medicine and advanced materials are continually demanding stronger magnetic fields. Efforts to generate fields in excess of 25 Tesla have been a principal driver of High Temperature Superconductor research. Although HTS materials were discovered decades ago and have always shown significant potential for high field use, until recently magnets using the technolo ...

  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 ...

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

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: 10b

    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 ...

  7. Dissimilar Metal Bonding of Corrosion-Resistant Cladding to Structural Materials in Next-Generation Nuclear Reactors

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: 13a

    As the United States aging fleet of nuclear reactors approach the end other their lifetimes, a new generation of nuclear reactors (Generation IV) are being developed to ensure national energy security without emissions or pollutants as a byproduct. However, there are many technological hurdles associated with the extreme corrosive environments required by molten salt reactor designs. This presents ...

  8. Integrated Sorbent-based Lithium, Power, and Water Recovery from Geothermal Brines

    SBC: STRATOFIRE LC            Topic: 17a

    Geothermal brines used in power generation can be a potential source of critical elements, such as lithium. However, current technological approaches cannot achieve high selectivity of target elements available in trace concentrations from a complex geothermal brine matrix with high concentration of non-desirable mineral content. StratoFire and Southern Research propose to develop and optimize an ...

  9. Pulsating Heat Pipes for Particle Accelerator Magnet Systems

    SBC: Cryomagnetics, Inc.            Topic: 29d

    Many modern superconducting magnets, such as those used in advanced particle accelerators, small scale fusion reactors, medical systems and basic magnetic research are cooled to their low operating temperature by contact with a refrigerator. It is frequently a challenge for designers to cool these large magnets uniformly due to thermal gradients that occur at cryogenic temperature. Systems experie ...

  10. Novel Treatment of Produced Waters from Shale Gas with Zero Liquid Discharge by Geothermal Heat

    SBC: SAVENGY TECHNOLOGIES., LLC            Topic: 17a

    Vast amounts of impaired waters are produced in gas and oil wells. Energy-efficient desalination systems are needed to treat these waters to produce fresh water and concentrated brines. Mineral recovery systems can also yield valuable critical materials as byproducts. Savengy Technologies and University of Central Florida (UCF) will develop and commercialize an energy efficient system to treat sha ...
