  2. Gap-Free Model-Based Engineering for Manufacturing and Analysis: Digital Thread without Translation

    SBC: Nvariate, Inc.            Topic: None

    Modern Model-Based Enterprise / Engineering (MBE) systems rely on freeform surfaces built as complex combinations of geometric primitives to define engineered objects. Unfortunately, the intersection of freeform surfaces in MBE applications results in highly approximated solutions, degrading models that cost billions annually by US industry to fix. Current technology limits the abilities of users ...

  8. Socket Diagnostic Tool Innovation for Upper Extremity Prostheses

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: SB151001

    Despite the advancement of prosthetics design, there exists a lack of quantifiable diagnostic fitment information for assessing the characteristics of the socket-limb interface. The lack of diagnostic data yield improperly fitted, uncomfortable, and unstable sockets. Responding to the need to develop innovative diagnostic tools for socket-limb interface quantification, TRI/Austin proposes an elec ...

  9. Individual Water Ready Device

    SBC: HYDROGY, LLC            Topic: SB151002

    The primary objective of this proposed effort is to demonstrate the feasibility of a game changing desalination concept. Given the thermodynamic minimum energy required for seawater desalination as 0.70 Wh/L, the proposed desalination process has the potential to reach an energy efficiency as low as 1.2 Wh/L. The secondary objective is to demonstrate a human powered energy harvester that powers ...
