  1. Forest pest risk analysis in dynamic landscapes

    SBC: Applied Biomathematics Inc            Topic: N/A

    Forest insect pests cause significant economic and ecological damage every year. Dramatically increased pest activity in recent years suggests that changing climate conditions will inflate the uncertainty associated with pest risk assessments. Advances in forest pest risk analysis methodology are needed to allow managers to better explore the consequences and value of alternative management scenar ...

  2. New indust. crop yielding a biomaterial that will reduce dependence on foriegn oil and increase the econ. sustainability of farms in America

    SBC: Ecovative Design Llc            Topic: N/A

    Foreign petroleum constitutes more than 60% of the oil used in the United States, and although significant strides are being taken to ensure future independence for fuel needs, the 10% of petroleum imports that are used as feedstock to produce materials are typically ignored. High density petrol-foams such as Divinycell or H1, are commonly used in products from vehicle panels to wind turbine blade ...

  3. Rapid, In-Field Method for Genomic-Based Identification of BVDV


    BVDV is a highly contagious disease that affects ruminant livestock. The virus is spread among cattle, is found in most parts of the world and is considered a high priority by the USDA. BVDV affects nutrition, milk production, respiratory and reproduction functions of cattle. BVD can suppress the immune system thus increasing susceptibility to pneumonia, diarrhea (scours), and reproductive failure ...

  4. Attract and Kill Technology to Control Citrus Leafminer in Citrus Nurseries and Orchards

    SBC: ALPHA SCENTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The citrus leafminer (CLM), Phyllocnistis citrella, Stainton (Lepidoptera: Gracillariidae), is an important pest of citrus originally found in Florida in 1993 and in Texas in 1994. Feeding by the larval stage results in serious damage to leaves and predisposes trees to citrus canker. Female CLM release their pheromone to attract males for mating. Attract and Kill (A&K) is the practice of deploying ...

  6. Engineering Models for Damage to Structural Components Subjected to Internal Blast Loading

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA08006

    Weidlinger Associates Inc. proposes to develop effective technology for simulating explosive detonations within civil buildings where the propagation of airblast and failure of weak internal walls are strongly coupled. We will conduct a field test program designed to complement other internal detonation testing efforts such as DTRA''s Distinct Cobra, expanding the available database. We will perfo ...

  7. High Fidelity Modeling of Building Collapse with Realistic Visualization of Resulting Damage and Debris

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA082005

    An approach for performing high fidelity modeling for blast and progressive collapse simulations of buildings will be developed. The modeling approach will allow complete simulations of building response to be performed within several days of computing time on desktop PCs. An 'easy to use' modeling interface will also be demonstrated in this effort. All response regimes will be addressed includi ...

  9. "intelligent Reports" For Dairy Herd


    The rapid development of the Internet, combined with the increasing power of microcomputers,provides an opportunity to improve greatly the quality of information available to the managers of dairyfarms. Internet technology provides a framework upon which information can be distributed quickly,with great flexibility, and at low cost, but existing information tools for dairy management are largelyo ...

  10. A Canopy Weather Forecast System To Support


    An objective Canopy Weather Forecast System (CWFS) will be developed and tested. The system willbe based on a site-specific one-dimensional (1-D) soil-canopy-atmospheric boundary layer numericalmodel which is coupled to a three-dimensional (3-D) mesoscale atmospheric numerical model. Theoutput from the CWFS will be designed for input into a variety of models that provide directinformation for cr ...
