  1. A HIGH-EFFICIENCY TECHNIQUE FOR STEAMFLOODING DEEP, HEAVY OIL RESERVOIRS

    SBC: Carbotek Inc            Topic: N/A

    A STEAMFLOODING/STEAM GENERATION SYSTEM IS PROPOSED FOR DEEP, HEAVY OIL RESERVOIRS. THIS CONCEPT MINIMIZES THE DOWNHOLE HEAT LOSSES, IMPROVES RELIABILITY AND REDUCES THE COST OF STEAM GENERATION. ITS FEATURES WILL MAKE STEAMING OF VERY DEEP WELLS (BELOW 7500 FEET) TECHNICALLY AND ECONOMICALLY FEASIBLE, AND WILL IMPROVE THE ECONOMICS OF SHALLOWER WELL STEAMFLOODING. THIS NOVEL CONCEPT SUPPLIES HEAT ...

  3. RAPID MULTIPLE CHOPSTICK WATER SAMPLER

    SBC: General Oceanics Inc            Topic: N/A

    A FREE FALL WATER SAMPLER BASED ON THE CHOPSTICK WATER SAMPLER BAG WILL BE DEVELOPED. THIS PORCUPINE SAMPLER WILL BE CAPABLE OF TAKING UP TO 36 THREE LITER WATER SAMPLES AT DEPTHS CONTROLLED FROM THE SURFACE, OR AT DEPTHS DETERMINED BY AN INTERNAL CONTROLLER. THE SAMPLE WILL BE OPTIMIZED FORMINIMUM TRAVEL TIME FROM THE SURFACE TO THE BOTTOM AND BACK SO THAT THE CURRENT FOUR HOUR ON STATION TIME FO ...

  4. 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. 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 ...

  6. SHORT-LIVED ISOTOPE TECHNOLOGY FOR EVALUATING PLANT GENOTYPE RESPONSES TO DROUGHT AND CO2 STRESSES

    SBC: Phytoresource Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    MODERN BREEDING, GENETIC ENGINEERING, AND BIO-TECHNOLOGIES, OFFER REMARKABLE POTENTIAL FOR IMPROVED PERFORMANCE OF STRESS TOLERANT CROP PLANTS. THESE METHODS, HOWEVER HAVE OFTEN PRODUCED PLANTS REQUIRING GREATER INPUTS OF WATER, NUTRIENTS, PEST CONTROL, ENERGY, AND MANAGEMENT COSTS. TO AVOID SUCH FALSE "IMPROVEMENTS" WILL REQUIRE TECHNIQUES TO EVALUATE BASIC PHYSIOLOGICAL STRESS RSPONSE MECHANISMS ...

  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. 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 ...

  9. THE DEVELOPMENT OF OPTIMUM STRUCTURAL SUPPORTS FOR LARGE APERTURE STRETCHED MEMBRANE HELIOSTATS

    SBC: Solar Kinetics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A STRUCTURAL SUPPORT SYSTEM FOR LARGE APERTURE, STRETCHED MEMBRANE HELIOSTATS WILL BE DEVELOPED. THIS SUPPORT SYSTEM PROVIDES A TRACKING PLATFORM AND RESISTANCE TO THE WIND LOADENVIRONMENT. STRETCHED MEMBRANE HELIOSTATS ENJOY A SIMPLICITY AND STRUCTURAL EFFICIENCY THAT RESULTS IN LOW REFLECTOR COSTS. MEMBRANE TECHNOLOGY IS PARTICULARLY SUITEDTO CAPTURE ECONOMIES OF SCALE THROUGH LARGE APERTURE CON ...

  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 ...
