  1. Synoptic Approach to Harmonize Discrete Data Streams in Application Development

    SBC: It Works Inc            Topic: 180NH1

    Research conducted in Phase I identified a range of data sources providing vehicle related information to consumers shopping around or interested in knowing more about vehicles. Majority of the commercial data sources focused on vehicle features, new/used/CPO pricing, and vehicles listings. Such data sources lacked safety as their central focus, which is a concern for U.S. Department of Transporta ...

  6. SENSITIVE LOW Z STRAIN GAGE

    SBC: APTEK, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS ACTIVITY WILL INVESTIGATE THE USE OF PVDF FILM FOR USE AS A LOW Z STRAIN GAGE. THE PVDF MATERIAL IS AN ORDER OF MAGNITUDE MORE SENSITIVE THAN PZT AS A PIEZOELECTRIC MATERIAL AND HAS AN ATOMIC NUMBER MUCH LOWER (LOW Z) THAN PRESENT RESISTIVE STRAIN GAGE MATERIALS. THEREFORE, PVDF AS A STRAIN GAGE WILL BE CAPABLE OF MEASURING MUCH LOWER LEVELS OF STRAIN THAN PRESENT GAGING TECHNIQUES, AND WILL ...
