  1. INTEGRATED CONE PENETRATION AND GROUND PENETRATING RADAR TECHNOLOGIES

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A SIGNIFICANT COST COMPONENT IN MANY CIVIL CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS IS GEOTECHNICAL EXPLORATION. THE RESEARCH PROPOSEDFOCUSES ON DEVELOPMENT OF A GEOTECHNICAL EXPLORATION SYSTEM THAT WOULD HAVE CAPABILITIES NOT FOUND IN ANY CURRENTLY AVAILABLE SYSTEM. THE SYSTEM UNDER CONSIDERATION IS A COMBINATION OF TWO KNOWN TECHNOLOGIES, ELECTRIC CONE PENETRATION TESTING (ECPT), AND GROUND PENETRATING RADAR (GPR) ...

  2. INTEGRATION OF CLOSE RANGE PROXIMITY AND TACTILE SENSING

    SBC: BONNEVILLE SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT WILL TAKE AN IMPORTANT STEP TOWARD THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN INTELLIGENT GENERAL PURPOSE ROBOTIC SYSTEMCAPABLE OF OBJECT LOCATION, IDENTIFICATION, AND MANIPULATIONTHROUGH THE JUDICIAL USE OF NON-VISUAL SENSING MODALITIES. CURRENTLY, ROBOTIC APPLICATIONS IN MANUFACTURING REQUIRE A HIGHLY STRUCTURED ENVIRONMENT SO THAT POSITION CONTROL OF THE ROBOT IS SATISFACTORY FOR THE TASK (E.G., PAINT ...

  3. STRENGTHENING OF STRUCTURAL CERAMICS BY DIFFERENTIAL CREEP

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: N/A

    A NOVEL METHOD FOR STRENGTHENING CERAMICS AND ALLOWING STRENGTH RETENTION TO HIGH TEMPERATURE IS PROPOSED. THE PHASE I RESEARCH WILL DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF INTRODUCING SUBSTANTIAL SURFACE COMPRESSIVE RESIDUAL STRESSES IN ALUMINA, SILICON CARBIDE, AND SILICON NITRIDE USING A DIFFERENTIAL CREEP MECHANISM. THE PHASE II RESEARCHWILL OPTIMIZE PARAMETERS FOR CONTROLLING THE MAGNITUDE AND STRESS DI ...

  5. COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS CODES FOR MODERN LUBRICATION PROBLEMS

    SBC: Ecodynamics Research Associate            Topic: N/A

    A FUNDAMENTAL APPROACH IS PROPOSED TO MODERN LUBRICATION PROBLEMS, INCLUDING THERMOHYDRODYNAMICS PROBLEMS, VIA COMPUTER SIMULATION OF THE FULL NONLINEAR, THREE-DIMENSIONAL, TIME-DEPENDENT NAVIER-STOKES EQUATIONS, I.E. VIA MODERN COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS (CFD). THE APPROACH IS CAPABLE OF ADDRESSING SEVEN MAJOR PROBLEM AREAS IN MODERN LUBRICATION PROBLEMS: (1) THERMAL EFFECTS IN THE FLUID (THERM ...

  7. CONTINUOUS MONITORING OF PPB LEVEL CATIONS AND ANIONS WITH SELECTIVE LIGAND-BONDED CONCENTRATOR COLUMNS

    SBC: IBC ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS A NEED FOR A DEVICE TO CONTINUOUSLY MONITOR CATIONSAND ANIONS IN THE PPB RANGE IN THE PRESENCE OF OTHER MORE CONCENTRATED MATRIX SPECIES. THIS NEED EXISTS IN RELATION TO SPECIES THAT ARE TOXIC, VALUABLE, OR OTHERWISE OF INTEREST. SUCH A DEVICE IS NEEDED IN MUNICIPAL WATER TREATMENT PLANTS, INDUSTRIAL PLANTS, AND OTHER PLACES WHERE THESE SPECIES SHOULD BE MONITORED WITH GREATER ACCURACY AN ...

  8. IMPROVED DYNAMIC SEAL PERFORMANCE USING DIFFERENTIAL WEAR PROCESSES

    SBC: Mechanical Seal Technology,            Topic: N/A

    DYNAMIC SEAL PERFORMANCE CAN BE IMPROVED BY FAVORABLY CONTROLLING THE FLUID PRESSURE BETWEEN THE TWO SLIDING SURFACES. FAVORABLE CONTROL OF FLUID PRESSURE IN THE MIXED FRICTION REGIME CAN LEAD TO REDUCED GROSS WEAR AND REDUCED FRICTION. IN TRADITIONAL DESIGN THE DETAIL OF THE MIXED FRICTION LUBRICATION IS LEFT TO THE INHERENT CHARACTERISTICSOF THE MATERIALS THEMSELVES. BY ALTERING MATERIAL PROPERT ...

  10. DEVELOPMENT OF A COMPACT, INEXPENSIVE X-RAY LASER DRIVER

    SBC: Multilayer Optics And X-ray            Topic: N/A

    THE PHYSICALLY LARGE DRIVERS CURRENTLY USED TO DEMONSTRATE AMPLIFIED SPONTANEOUS EMISSION (ASE) IN THE SOFT X-RAY REGION MAKE THEIR USE AS LABORATORY X-RAY LASERS IMPRACTICAL. A CAPILLARY DISCHARGE OR SLIDING SPARK DEVICE PROVIDES AN ALTERNATE WAY TO ACHIEVE THE PLASMA CONDITIONS NECESSARY FOR SOFT X-RAY ASE IN ELEMENTS SUCH AS ARGON AND KRYPTON. CAPILLARY DISCHARGES RESULT IN REPRODUCIBLE, STABLE ...
