  1. DEVELOPMENT OF ELECTROSTATIC PESTICIDE APPLICATORS

    SBC: Terronics Development Corp.            Topic: N/A

    PRESENT DAY HERBICIDE SPRAYING OF FIELD ROW CROPS IS VERY INEFFICIENT; OVER 75% OF THE HERBICIDE IS WASTED AS OVER- SPRAY, WHICH IS COSTLY AND CONTAMINATES THE ENVIRONMENT. THEFEASIBILITY OF EFFICIENTLY APPLYING TRANSLOCATABLE HERBICIDEWITH ELECTROSTATIC SPRAY DEPOSITION TECHNIQUES WILL BE EX- AMINED. STUDIES WILL EVALUATE DIFFERENT PARTICLE CHARGING MEANS, INCLUDING INDUCTION CHARGING, CORONA CHA ...

  2. INVERSION OF LAPLACE TRANSFORMS ON MICROCOMPUTERS

    SBC: Micromath Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE APPLICATION OF PHYSICAL-CHEMICAL PRINCIPLES TO BIOLOGICAL SYSTEMS FREQUENTLY LEADS TO SITUATIONS IN WHICH THE QUANTITATIVE TREATMENT OF CONCEPTUALLY SIMPLE MODELS IS CONFOUNDED BY THE COMPLEXITY OF THE SYSTEM. SUCH IS THE CASE, FOR EXAMPLE, IN THE STUDY OF THE PERMEATION (AND POSSIBLE CONCURRENT METABOLISM) OF DRUGS THROUGH COMPLEX BIOLOGICAL MEMBRANES, THE PHYSIOLOGICAL MODELING OF THE DISTRI ...

  3. AN ULTRASONIC PLATELET HARVESTER

    SBC: Technical research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    TECHNICAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC. PROPOSES THE DEVELOPMENTOF A NOVEL PLATELET-HARVESTING SYSTEM BASED ON A PREVIOUSLY DEVELOPED ULTRASOUND SEPARATION TECHNOLOGY. THIS TECHNOLOGY, DEVELOPED UNDER AN NHLBI GRANT, ALLOWS THE SEQUENTIAL SEPARATION OF CELLS BASED ON THEIR SIZE, EVEN THOSE CELLS THAT HAVE IDENTICAL DENSITIES. FIRST, RESIDUAL ERYTHROCYTES AND LARGE LEUKOCYTES CAN BE SEPARATED FROM PLAT ...

  5. HEAVY METAL REMOVAL AT THE PPB LEVEL FROM CULINARY WATER USING A NOVEL MACROCYCLE-SILICA GEL DEVICE

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

    IT IS DESIRABLE TO HAVE A MTHOD FOR EFFICIENT, COST EFFEC- TIVE, AND SIMULTANEOUS REMOVAL OF PB(II), AG(I), CD(II) AND HG(II) FROM POTABLE WATER TO LEVELS WELL BELOW THEIR EPA LIMITS. SUCH A METHOD COULD BE USED BY BOTH MUNICIPAL WATER WASTE TREATMENT PLALNTS. THE INTERACTION OF THE MACROCYCLE TETRAAZA-18CROWN WITH THE METALS OF INTEREST IS OF SUFFI- CIENT STRENGTH AND SELECTIVITY TO REMOVE THE ME ...

  6. STOICHIOMETRIC DIESEL ENGINE

    SBC: ADIABATICS INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    A FEASIBILITY STUDY ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF A STOICHIOMETRIC DIESEL ENGINE IS PROPOSED USING THE THERMAL IGNITION COMBUSTION CHAMBER. THE ADIABATIC DIESEL ENGINE WITHOUT WATER OR AIR COOLING ALLOWS THE THERMAL IGNITION CHAMBER TO STORE HEAT DURING COMBUSTION AND RELEASE THE ENERGY FOR IGNITION IN THE FOLLOWING CYCLE. INJECTION OF FUEL ON TO 1800-2000 DEG. F WALL TEMPERATURE WILL PREPARE THE FUEL FOR ...

  7. HYPERSONIC RAMJET LEADING EDGE MATERIALS DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: N/A

    CERAMATEC HAS CONDUCTED EXPLORATORY RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT ON MONOLITHIC AND COMPOSITE MATERIALS IN THE ZRB2 AND TIB2 SYSTEMS AND HAS OBTAINED VERY ENCOURAGING RESULTS WITH SEVERAL PROPRIETARY COMPOSITIONS/CONSTRUCTIONS. THE AVERAGE STRENGTH OF A BASELINE TIB2 COMPOSITION WAS MEASURED AT 877 MPA (127.3 KSI). COMPOSITE STRUCTURESWITH DISCONTINUOUS REINFORCEMENT HAD STRENGTHS IN THE RANGE 400-600 ...

  8. INJECTION MOLDING OF CERAMIC MATRIX COMPOSITES

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: N/A

    THE OVERALL OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE SUCCESSFUL FABRICATION AND DENSIFICATION OF CERAMIC MATRIX COMPOSITES FORMED BY INJECTION MOLDING. TO ACCOMPLISH THIS OBJECTIVE, A DESIGNED TEST MATRIX WILL BE DEVELOPED THAT WILL SYSTEMATICALLY INVESTIGATE THE KEY INJECTION MOLDING AND DEBINDING PARAMETERS SUCH AS BINDER COMPOSITION, SOLIDS RATIO, MOLDING CONDITIONS, DEBINDING CONDITIONS ...

  9. LIPOSOME SIALIDATION

    SBC: Siagenic Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL IS TO DEMONSTRATE FEASIBILITY OF INSERTION OF SIALIC ACID MOLECULES INTO MEMBRANES OF LIPOSOMES CARRYING HEMOGLOBIN. THE LIPOSOMES MAY BE PROVIDED BY NAVY CONTRACTORS OR PREPARED BY OFFEROR ACCORDING TO CONTRACTORS' SPECIFICATIONS FOR FOMULATION. THE ADDED SIALIC ACID WILL PROTECT THE LIPOSOMES FROM CLEARANCE BY THE RETICULOENDOTHELIAL SYSTEM AND THEREBY INCREASE THE RESIDENCY TIME O ...

  10. MANUFACTURE OF HIGH T(C) SUPERCONDUCTING COMPOSITE WIRES

    SBC: Technical research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    IN ORDER TO USE THE NEW CERAMIC SUPERCONDUCTOR MATERIALS IN MANY APPLICATIONS, THE NORMALLY BRITTLE MATERIALS MUST BE FORMED INTO WIRES. THIS PROPOSAL SUGGESTS A WET CHEMISTRY TECHNIQUE FOR FORMING THE SUPERCONDUCTOR COMPOUND INTO A WIRE, WHICH WILL THEN BE COATED WITH A METAL JACKET TO PROTECT THE WIRE FORM PHYSICAL ABUSE AND ENVIRONMENTAL DEGRADATION. BECAUSE THE COATING PROCESS WILL BE ESSENTIA ...
