  5. 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 ...

  6. AN INTEGRATED FRAMEWORK FOR KNOWLEDGE REPRESENTATION AND ACQUISITION

    SBC: Decision Science Associates            Topic: N/A

    MANY DIVERSE METHODS OF KNOWLEDGE REPRESENTATION HAVE BEEN USED BY AI RESEARCHERS. NONE APPEAR POWERFUL ENOUGH TO CAPTURE THE DIVERSE TYPES OF KNOWLEDGE THAT PEOPLE POSSESS NOR DO THEY APPEAR FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO SUPPORT THE ACQUISITION OF KNOWLEDGE. THE PROPOSED PROJECT WILL DEVELOP A KNOWLEDGE REPRESENTATION SCHEME THAT INTEGRATES THREE MAJOR FRAMEWORKS: SCHEMAS/FRAMES, PRODUCTION RULES AND MENTAL ...

  10. 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 ...
