  3. AN ALTERNATE MATERIAL FOR CONSTRUCTION OF SHELL PADS TO ESTABLISH OYSTER SEED BEDS AND COMMERCIAL REEFS

    SBC: Continental Shelf Assocs Inc.            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCH ON AN ALTERNATE MATERIAL, ANHYDRITE CALCIUM SULFATE, FOR USE AS CULTCH IN CONSTRUCTING SEED BEDS AND ARTIFICIAL OYSTER REEFS IS HEREIN PROPOSED. GIVEN THE FACTS THAT OYSTER PRODUCTION IN THE UNITED STATES HAS DECLINED GREATLY SINCE 1908 AND THAT NATURAL OYSTERSHELL IS SCARCE AND EXPENSIVE, MOTIVATION FOR USE OF THIS ALTERNATE MATERIAL AS CULTCH INCLUDES ITS CONTINUOUS PRODUCTION, LOW COST ...

  5. DEVELOPMENT OF ANALYSIS TOOL FOR HIGH AND LOW VELOCITY ICE INDENTATION PROBLEMS

    SBC: Simtex Inc.            Topic: N/A

    TWO MAJOR OBSTACLES CONFRONTED PREVIOUS ATTEMPTS TO ANALYZE FIELD ICE BEHAVIOR; NAMELY: THE LACK OF PROPER CONSTITUTIVE LAWS TO MODEL REALISTIC ICE BEHAVIOR, PARTICULARLY AT HIGH STRAIN-RATES, AND THE DIFFICULTY IN INCORPORATING LARGE ICE DEFORMATIONS IN THE ANALYSIS. THIS PROPOSAL PRESENTS A STUDY WHICH WILL IMPLEMENT AN ICE CONSTITUTIVE MODEL SUBROUTINE TO WORK IN CONJUNCTION WITH A LAGRANGE EXP ...

  6. FLAW DETECTION, SIZING AND LOCATION BY DIFFERENTIAL GAMMA SCATTERING SPECTRUM TECHNIQUE

    SBC: Florida Nuclear Associates Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE PROGRAM PROPOSED HEREIN INVOLVES ANALYTICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL RESEARCH TO CAREFULLY EVALUATE AND FURTHER DEVELOP THE DIFFERENTIAL GAMMA SCATTERING TECHNIQUE FOR ACCURATE NON-INVASIVE DETERMINATION OF VOIDS, CRACKS, FLAWS IN MATERIALS AND THE DEFECTS SIZING AND LOCATION CAPABILITIES OF THIS METHOD. THIS NEW DEVICE, WHICH WE HAVE TERMED "DIFFERENTIAL GAMMA SCATTERING SPECTRUM PROBE (DGSSP)," IS B ...

    SBIR Phase II 1987 National Science Foundation
  7. GLOBAL CONVERGENCE PROCESSING OF STEROSCOPIC IMAGES

    SBC: Coprocessor Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THIS EFFORT WILL INVESTIGATE A THREE DIMENSIONAL VIDEO DISPLAY SYSTEM. THE SYSTEM WILL NOT REQUIRE VIEWING APPARATUS (SPECIAL GLASSES, ETC.) AND IS COMPATIBLE WITH EXISTING TV SYSTEMS. IT WILL USE A BASIC STEREOSCOPIC 3D TECHNIQUE DEVELOPED SEVERAL YEARS AGO, BUT THE NEW SYSTEM WILL INCORPORATE UNIQUE IMAGE PROCESSING THAT CORRECTS DEFECTS OTHERWISE INHERENT IN ALL SYSTEMS THAT DISPLAY STEREOSCOPI ...

    SBIR Phase I 1987 National Science Foundation
  8. IMPROVED DRILLING TOOL CONTROL SYSTEM

    SBC: Larry Russell & Assocs.            Topic: N/A

    THIS IMPROVED DOWNHOLE DRILLING TOOL CONTROL SYSTEM PROVIDES A SIMPLER, LESS EXPENSIVE, AND MORE RELIABLE MEANS OF OPERATING MANY TYPES OF DRILLING, TEST, AND COMPLETION TOOLS. THE SYSTEM IS OPERATED BY TEMPORARY INCREASES IN PUMP PRESSURE, WITH AUTOMATIC COMPENSATION FOR CHANGES IN HYDROSTATIC PRESSURE. THE SYSTEM PROVIDES FEEDBACK, IS OF FULL-BORE DESIGN, IS COMPATIBLE WITH OTHER TYPES OF TOOLS, ...

    SBIR Phase I 1987 National Science Foundation
  9. MULTI-ROBOT CONTROL FOR FLEXIBLE MANUFACTURING SYSTEMS

    SBC: Knowledge Systems Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED WORK WOULD RESULT IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SUPERVISORY CONTROL SYSTEM FOR FLEXIBLE MANUFACTURING SYSTEMS (FMS) IN GENERAL, AND COOPERATING MULTI-ROBOT SYSTEMS IN PARTICULAR. THIS SYSTEM, TO BE REFERRED TO AS ANACTIVITY CONTROLLER (AC), WILL BE ORGANIZED IN A HIERARCHICAL STRUCTURE WHERE THE LEVELS OF THE HIERARCHY CORRESPOND TO THE DIFFERENT DECISION TYPES NECESSARY TO CONTROL A FMS. A ...

    SBIR Phase I 1987 National Science Foundation
  10. NUMERICAL SIMULATION OF MISCIBLE FLOODING

    SBC: Reservoir Simulation Research            Topic: N/A

    IMPROVED PREDICTIONS OF PETROLEUM RESERVOIR PERFORMANCE ARE NEEDED TO REDUCE THE RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH FIELD SCALE MISCIBLE FLOODING. A MAJOR SHORTCOMING OF CURRENT PREDICTION TECHNIQUES IS THE FAILURE TO ACCURATELY MODEL THE EFFECTS OF MOBILITY RATIO AND VISCOUS FINGERING ON VOLUMETRIC SWEEP AND DISPLACEMENT EFFICIENCY. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH WILL DEVELOP IMPROVED NUMERICAL TECHNIQUES FOR THIS PRO ...
