  1. A FUZZY SET APPROACH FOR SEISMIC SAFETY MARGINS ASSESSMENT.

    SBC: Eda Consultants            Topic: N/A

    THE CONTRACTOR SHALL DEVELOP A FUZZY SET METHODOLOGY FOR UNCERTAINTY ANALYSIS IN PROBABILISTIC SEISMIC SAFETY ASSESSMENT OF NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS. FUZZY SET LOGIC WILL BEUSED FOR COLLECTING, QUANTIFYING AND PROPAGATING SUBJECTIVE,ENGINEERING JUDGEMENT USED IN THE UNCERTAINTY ANALYSIS. IN PHASE I, FEASIBILITY OF THE PROPOSED APPROACH WILL BE DEMONSTRATED BY APPLYING IT TO SELECTED PARTS OF A PROBABI ...

  2. A MICROCOMPUTER-BASED DNA GEL ELECTROPHORESIS IMAGE ANALYSIS

    SBC: Genetics Data Services Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT IS TO DESIGN AND CONSTRUCT A MICROCOMPUTER-BASED INSTRUMENT FOR QUANTITATING SIZE DISTRIBUTIONS OF NUCLEIC ACIDS (DNA AND RNA) SEPARATED ACCORDING TO SIZE BY GEL ELECTROPHORESIS. THE STARTING POINT FOR ANALYSIS OF FLUORESCENCE-STAINED DNA IN GELS WILL BE THE IMAGE DIGITIZATION OF THE ENTIRE GEL ELECTROPHORETIC PATTERN (OR SPECIFIED PORTIONS OF IT) SO THAT THE RELATIVE INTENSITIES OF F ...

  5. APPLICATION OF TIME-DELAYED GELS FOR FLUID CONTROL AS AN OIL RECOVERY DISPLACEMENT PROCESS

    SBC: Remington Energy Corp            Topic: N/A

    IN MANY FLUID INJECTION PROCESSES USED FOR OIL RECOVERY, SUCH AS WATERFLOODING, THE INJECTED FLUIDS FLOW PREFERENTIALLY THROUGH THE ROCK ZONES OF HIGH FLOW CAPACITY (HIGH PERMEABILITY), BYPASSING OIL THAT IS PRESENT IN THE TIGHTER PARTS OF THE RESERVOIR ROCK. THIS MAY RESULT IN HIGH WATER-TO-OIL-PRODUCING RATIOS AND ABANDONMENT OF A PROJECT AT A RELATIVELY LOW VOLUMETRIC SWEEP EFFICIENCY. ONE APPR ...

  6. DEVELOPMENT OF VISUAL INSTRUCTION MATERIALS FOR MATH AND SCIENCE CURRICULUM USING THE TOPOLOGICAL PANORAMA CAMERA

    SBC: Janet Gelphman Photography            Topic: N/A

    LEARNING ABILITIES IN MATHEMATICS AND THE SCIENCES ARE NOT MAXIMIZED BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF VISUAL INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS. THE IMPROVEMENT OF THESE SKILLS IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE BETTER SCIENCE AND MATH ABILITIES ARE NEEDED IN THE UNITED STATES IN ORDER TO KEEP UP WITH OTHER INDUSTRIALIZED NATIONS. OUR PROPOSED SOLUTION IS TO USE A NEW TECHNOLOGY, THE TOPOLOGICAL PANORAMA CAMERA, TO CREATE COST-EFFE ...

  7. FORCE REFLECTION EFFECTS ON OPERATOR PERFORMANCE OF REMOTE MAINTENANCE AND INSPECTION SYSTEMS FOR NUCLEAR FACILITIES

    SBC: REINHART & ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    ROBOTIC MACHINES THAT DUPLICATE THE MANIPULATIVE SKILLS OF AHUMAN OPERATOR ARE CRITICALLY NEEDED IN COMMERCIAL NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS TO REDUCE OPERATOR EXPOSURE IN HIGH-RADIATION AREAS. ROBOTIC SYSTEMS WITH FORCE REFLECTION (FORCE INFORMATION REFLECTED THROUGH A CONTROL JOYSTICK) AND THREE-DIMENSIONAL VISUAL FEEDBACK CAN IMPROVE TASK PERFORMANCE AND REDUCE FATIGUE. THIS RESEARCH PROJECT WILL USE A ...

  8. METHODS OF REDUCTION OF WIND-INDUCED DYNAMIC RESPONSE IN SOLAR CONCENTRATORS AND OTHER SMALL LIGHTWEIGHT STRUCTURES

    SBC: Lajet Energy Co            Topic: N/A

    RECENT WIND TUNNEL STUDIES ON SOLAR CONCENTRATOR STRUCTURES INDICATE THAT STRUCTURES WITH LOW DAMPING PROPERTIES ARE POTENTIALLY SUSCEPTIBLE TO THE SPECTRAL NATURE OF ATMOSPHERIC WIND LOADING. SOLAR CONCENTRATORS ARE SENSITIVE TO DEFLECTIONS IN OPTICAL MOUNTING AND TRACKING SYSTEMS; CONSEQUENTLY, STRUCTURES AND DRIVES WITH SUFFICIENT RIGIDITY TO RESIST DYNAMICALLY INDUCED LOADING WITH MINIMAL DEFL ...

  10. RECOVERY OF ORGANIC VAPORS FROM PRINTING AND PAINTING OPERATIONS USING SURFACTANT-ENHANCED CARBON REGENERATION

    SBC: Surfactant Assoc Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ACTIVATED CARBON IS FREQUENTLY USED TO ABSORB ORGANIC MATERIALS FROM AIR AND WATER IN MANY INDUSTRIAL OPERATIONS. IN PARTICULAR, ACTIVATED CARBON IS USED TO ABSORB VOLATILE ORGANICS FROM THE EXHAUST AIR IN THE PRINTING AND PAINTING INDUSTRIES. A NECESSARY PART OF SUCH OPERATIONS IS THE REGENERATION OF THE ACTIVATED CARBON WITH SIMULTANEOUS RECOVERY OF THE ORGANIC MATERIAL, WHICH IS GENERALLY VERY ...
