  1. PROGRAMMABLE REFLECTANCE OF ARTIFICIAL FLAWS IN RAIL MATERIALS

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

    A PROGRAMMABLE DEFECT SIMULATOR IS NEEDED TO TEST ULTRASONIC RAIL FLAW DETECTION SYSTEMS. CALIBRATION STANDARDS CAN BE DEVELOPED WITH VARIABLE PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS ACCORDING TO A PREDESCRIBED SCHEME THAT SIMULATES COMMONLY-OCCURRING FLAWS (CROSS-HEAD FATIGUE CRACKS) IN RAILWAY SYSTEM RAILS. THIS PROJECT WOULD DEVELOP A METHOD OF ALTERING THE EFFECTIVE REFLECTIVITY OF A SOLID-GAS INTERFACE THRO ...

  7. Development of Innovative Welding for High Performance Bridge Steel

    SBC: KAI, LLC            Topic: 132FH1

    With this research, we would like to provide new materials joining methods to the DOT. This will be achieved with a pulse energy store that has already demonstrated game changing capability in welding a wide variety of metals and alloys. The process we are proposing is known as Homopolar Welding. The weld is created by a solid state fusion welding process whereby high current is passed through ...

  8. Broad Spectrum Absorption-Fluorescence Method for Determining Adsorption Capacity of Fly Ash

    SBC: PHOSPHORTECH            Topic: 171FH1

    Interference of unburned and activated carbon in fly ash with air-entraining admixtures (AEA’s) in fresh concrete mixtures is a major concern in the concrete industry. Therefore, a rapid and accurate measurement of adsorption capacity of fly ash is of great interest to this industry. In this project, a new method is suggested, which can qualitatively and quantitatively measure different surfact ...

  9. Resilient Wayside Structures and Passenger Car Survivability

    SBC: PROTECTION ENGINEERING CONSULTANTS LLC            Topic: 171FR3

    Additional passenger fatalities and injuries can occur during derailments due to interaction with wayside structures, such as catenary poles, bridge abutments, and discontinuities in third rails at highway grade crossings. Resilient wayside structures can reduce these risks, by lessening the amount of intrusion, penetration, and passenger motion. PEC and Arup will work together to develop resilien ...
