  1. OF APPARENT INTEREST TO THE DEFENSE NUCLEAR AGENCY (DNA) IS THE ABILITY TO DETECT THE LOCATION OF TUNNEL BORING MACHINES(TBM).

    SBC: Utah Geophysical, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    OF APPARENT INTEREST TO THE DEFENSE NUCLEAR AGENCY (DNA) IS THE ABILITY TO DETECT THE LOCATION OF TUNNEL BORING MACHINES(TBM). THESE TYPES OF DEVICES ARE USED TO DRILL TUNNELS FOR MILITARY PURPOSES, SUCH AS THE STORAGE OF NUCLEAR DEVICES AND THE CONSTRUCTION OF MISSILE SILOS. BY LOCATING TBM'S IN OPERATION, UNFRIENDLY FORCES COULD IDENTIFY POTENTIAL MILITARY TARGETS. IT IS THEREFORE OF INTEREST TO ...

  3. SODIUM HEAT ENGINE DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: N/A

    THE SODIUM HEAT ENGINE (SHE) IS AN EFFICIENT DEVICE FOR THE DIRECT CONVERSION OF THERMAL ENERGY TO ELECTRICAL ENERGY. THE DEVICE HAS HIGH SPECIFIC POWER BOTH ON A VOLUME AND WEIGHT BASIS, HIGH CONVERSION EFFICIENCY WHICH IS INDEPENDENT OF SIZE, AND NO MOVING PARTS WHICH IMPLIES POTENTIALLY HIGH RELIABILITY. THESE ATTRIBUTES MAKE THE SHE AN ATTRACTIVE DEVICE FOR SDI APPLICATIONS. ALTHOUGH THE PRINC ...

  4. THE EFFECT OF PRESHOCK LOADING ON THE RESPONSE OF NTS TUFF

    SBC: Terra Tek Inc.            Topic: N/A

    PRESHOCKED PRECONDITIONING OF TUFF MAY OCCUR IN TWO MANNERS AT THE NEVADA TEST SITE. FIRST, THE MATERIAL IS "PRESHOCKED" IN A LINEOF-SIGHT TYPE UNDERGROUND NUCLEAR TEST BY THE FIRST WAVE PASSAGE. THE SECOND MANNER MAY OCCUR AS A RESULT OF AREAL SPACE LIMITATIONS WHEN A SECOND EVENT IS SITED WITHIN A REGION OF PRESHOCKED MATERIAL. UNDER CERTAIN LOAD-UNLOADED CONDITIONS THE MATERIAL STRENGTH MAY BE ...

  5. UNDRAINED SHEAR BEHAVIOR OF SATURATED JOINTED ROCKS AT DEEP BASING CONDITIONS

    SBC: Terra Tek Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SHEAR DISPLACEMENT ALONG ROCK MASS DISCONTINUITIES (JOINTS) UNDER SATURATED, UNDRAINED CONDITIONS IS ONE OF THE CRITICAL FAILURE MODES FOR A DYNAMICALLY LOADED DEEP BASE STRUCTURE. THE FAILURE MODE HAS NOT BEEN EXPERIMENTALLY SIMULATED FOR DEEP BASE CONDITIONS. THE COMBINED APPLICATION OF NORMAL AND SHEAR STRESSES AT DYNAMIC RATES, WITHOUT PORE PRESSURE DRAINAGE, IS LIKELY TO PRODUCE HIGH PORE PRE ...

  7. LABORATORY STUDY OF EXTENSION FAILURE IN NEVADA TEST SITE TUFFS

    SBC: Terra Tek Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CALCULATED GROUND MOTION FROM NUCLEAR EXPLOSIONS PREDICT THAT AT LOCATIONS NEAR THE CAVITY THE ROCK FAILURE SURFACE WILL BE ENCOUNTERED IN EXTENSION DURING LATER STAGES OF UNLOAD. THE RESULTING HOOP FRACTURES WILL PRODUCE A FAILED ROCK ZONE SURROUNDING THE CAVITY. HIGH PRESSURE CAVITY GASES COULD INITIATE A HYDRAULIC FRACTURE THROUGH THE FRACTURE ROCK WHICH, UNDER THE WORST CONDITION, WOULD LEAD T ...

  8. HIGH POWER SHORT PULSE BATTERY/CAPACITOR

    SBC: ERNEST MEADOWS INDUSTRIAL DESIGN            Topic: N/A

    BIPOLAR BATTERIES CAN, IN PRINCIPLE, YIELD ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE HIGHER SPECIFIC POWER THAN CONVENTIONAL, PARALLEL PLATE BATTERIES. SUCH BATTERIES BEGIN TO HAVE PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICS SIMILAR TO CAPACITORS AND COULD POSSIBLY BE USED TO REPLACE CAPACITOR FOR SOME APPLICATIONS. BATTERY PERFORMANCE OF BETWEEN 5 AND 2 A/CM2 AT 1.0 V CELL POTENTIAL FOR A TIME PERIOD OF 500 MICROSECONDS WITH ELECTROD ...

  9. MAINTENANCE-AND-VIBRATION-FREE SOLID ELECTROLYTE CRYOGENIC COOLER

    SBC: LONE PEAK ENGINEERING COMPANY            Topic: N/A

    THE COOLING REQUIRED FOR THE PROPER OPERATION OF VARIOUS SENSORS AND INSTRUMENTS IS A KEY PROBLEM IN SPACE-BASED FACILITIES. A NOVEL CONCEPT HAS BEEN DEVELOPED AT LONE PEAK ENGINEERING BASED ON THE COMPRESSION OF A GAS TO HIGH PRESSURES USING A SOLID ELECTROLYTE COMPRESSOR. RAPID EXPANSION OF THE COMPRESSED GAS (JOULE-THOMSON EFFECT) CAN BE USED TO COOL SPACECRAFT INSTRUMENTS AND EQUIPMENT. SOME O ...

  10. DEVELOPMENT OF A RESIDUAL IN-SITU STRESS GAUGE

    SBC: Terra Tek Inc.            Topic: N/A

    QUANTITATIVE VERIFICATION OF THE RESIDUAL IN-SITU STRESS FIELD WHICH CREATES THE CONTAINMENT CAGE IS NEEDED TO ASSESS THE FACTOR OF SAFETY AGAINST HYDRAULIC FRACTURING FROM THE CAVITY WALL. PHASE I WILL ESTABLISH THE FEASIBLITY OF DEVELOPING A PASSIVE STRESS GAUGE, ABSENT OF ACTIVE INSTRUMENTATION, AND CAPABLE OF RECORDING THE RESIDUAL IN-SITU STRESS FIELD IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING THE NUCLEAR DEVICE ...
