  1. REMOVAL OF SULFUR OXIDES AND NITROGEN OXIDES FROM FLUE GAS BY CATALYTIC CONVERSION USING REDUCED ZIRCONIA

    SBC: Advanced Ceramic Research            Topic: N/A

    EMISSION OF SULFUR OXIDES (SOX) AND NITROGEN OXIDES (NOX) IN FLUE GASES IS A MAJOR CAUSE OF AIR POLLUTION AND ACID RAIN. CURRENT TECHNOLOGIES FOR SOX REMOVAL ARE EXPENSIVE AND CUMBERSOME. SULFUR DIOXIDE IS CONVERTED TO SULFURIC ACID, WHICH IS VERY CORROSIVE AND DIFFICULT TO STORE AND TRANSPORT. REMOVAL OF NOX IS ACCOMPLISHED BY CATALYTIC CONVERSION USING PLATINUM CATALYSTS. PLATINUM CATALYSTS ARE ...

  3. SOLID-STATE CLINICAL GAS ANALYZER

    SBC: Albion Instruments            Topic: N/A

    A SMALLER, LIGHTER, MORE EFFICIENT, AND MORE RELIABLE CLINICAL GAS ANALYZER FOR RESPIRATORY AND ANESTHETIC GAS MONITORING IS NEEDED. EXISTING LASER RAMAN-BASED INSTRUMENTATION USES A LARGE, HEAVY, AND EXTREMELY INEFFICIENT (0.1 PERCENT) ARGON ION LASER WITH AN INTRACAVITY GAS CELL. THE LONG-TERM OBJECTIVE OF THIS STUDYIS TO IMPLEMENT A SOLID-STATE ALTERNATIVE TO THE EXISTING ION LASER. SUCH A LASE ...

  4. IMPROVED POLLUTION CONTROL USING RAMAN SCATTERING GAS ANALYSIS

    SBC: Albion Instruments            Topic: N/A

    REAL TIME ON-LINE ANALYSIS OF STACK GASSES IS NECESSARY TO MONITOR EFFLUENTS AND TO PERMIT FEEDBACK CONTROL OF COMBUSTION PROCESS AND DOWN STREAM SCRUBBER SYSTEMS. MULTIMEDIA POLLUTION ANALYSIS REQUIRES MULTIPLE SENSOR TECHNOLOGY WITH PRESENT COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE INSTRUMENTATION. CURRENTLY, COMPLEX ANALYTICAL SYSTEMS MUSTBE ASSEMBLED THAT ARE EXPENSIVE, PRONE TO DRIFT, AND DIFFICULT TO OPERATE A ...

  6. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. HIGH SPEED MACHINING OF TITANIUM ALLOYS USING CERAMIC CUTTING TOOLS

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: N/A

    TITANIUM MACHINING HAS INCREASED SUBSTANTIALLY DURING THE PAST 25 YEARS BUT DESPITE INTENSE INTEREST IN FINDING IMPROVED TOOL MATERIALS,WC-6 WT. % CO IS STILL USED AT CUTTING SPEEDS LESS THAN 75 M/MIN. RECENT WORK AT CERAMATEC SHOWED THAT NOVEL CERAMIC CUTTING TOOLS COULD BE USED TO MACHINE TITANIUM ALLOYS WITH 30-75% LESS FLANK WEAR THAN CONVENTIONAL CEMENTED CARBIDES AT SPEEDS OF 100-175 M/MIN. ...
