  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 ...

  2. Innovative technologies for nondestructive determination of fracture toughness for pipeline steels in transportation infastructure

    SBC: Innerspec Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 180PH1

    In the inspection and quality assurance framework, coercimetry refers to non-destructive testing of mechanical properties based on measurements of the magnetic characteristics of a metal. This technology relies on the continuous and noticeable (100-400%) increase in the magnitude of the coercivity, while the metal passes from as-delivered to its final state. As both magnetic and mechanical propert ...

  3. Simulating Signal Phase and Timing with an Intersection Collision Avoidance Traffic Model

    SBC: Harmonia Holdings Group, LLC            Topic: 101FH3

    eTEXAS is an integrated traffic and communications simulator developed in cooperation with the US Department of Transportation (USDOT) to support the development of Connected Vehicle (CV) Apps and to perform research on vehicle and roadside Dedicated Short-Range Communication/Wireless Access in Vehicular Environments (DSRC/WAVE) communications using the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) standa ...

  4. Software Package for Material Model Evaluation

    SBC: APTEK, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I and II SBIR will develop a user-friendly, run-time efficient software package dedicated to fitting and evaluating material models used in finite element codes like LS-DYNA. The software package will consist of a pre-processor, a core driver, and a post-processor. The pre-processor will allow the user to specify the material model, model parameters, and desired load history. The dri ...

  5. Portland Cement Concrete Pavement Recycling

    SBC: Road Processing Resources Inc.            Topic: N/A

    RPR's Phase I contract proved the feasibility of concrete recycling based o a shock-producing hammer/anvil concept for fracturing and sizing aggregate and separating reinforcing steel into marketable scrap. The Phase II project will develop a portable self-propelled prototype to remove and process a 12 foot wide roadway at a rate of about a mile a day. This is called "Fast Track" highway removal ...

  6. METHODOLOGY FOR CORRELATION OF ATC CONTROLLER WORKLOAD AND ERRORS

    SBC: Computer Technology Associates            Topic: N/A

    THE PURPOSE OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO STUDY THE FEASIBILITY OF QUANTIFYING THE EFFECTS OF IREASED AUTOMATION ON THE WORKLOAD AND PERFORMANCE OF THE FEDERAL AVIATION ADMINISTRA-TION'S AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLER. IN PHASE I, RESEARCH WILL FOCUS ON ADAPTRING OUR CURRENT HUMAN PERFORMANCE MODEL TO REPRESENT THE JOB CHARACTERISTICS OR ATTRIBUTES THAT WILL DETERMINE LEVELS OF WORKLOAD AND PERFORMANCE IN THE AD ...

  7. RESEARCH ON AN AIRBORNE WIND SHEAR SENSOR

    SBC: OPHIR CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    THE RECOGNIZED LOW LEVEL WIND SHEAR PHENOMENON KNOWN AS A MICROBURST POSES A SERIOUS AIR SAFETY THREAT TO COMMERCIAL AVIATION WHILE IN A LANDING OR POSES A SERIOUS COMMERCIAL AVIATION WHILE IN A LANDING OR TAKEOFF PATTERN. THIS LOW LEVEL WIND SHEAR HAS BEEN DEMONSTRATED TO DE A THIS LOW LEVEL WIND SHEAR HAS BEEN DEMONSTRATED TO BE A MAJOR CONTRIBUTING FACTOR TO SEVERAL CRASHES OF COMMERCIAL AIRLIN ...

  8. LASER GENERATED SURFACE ACOUSTIC WAVES FOR FLAW DETECTION IN TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS.

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM STUDIES REQUIRE IN-SERVICE INSPECTION USING NONDESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION (NDE) TECHNIQUES FOR FLAW DETECTION AND CHARACTERIZATION. IN CASES WHERE SUCH DEFECTS ARE SMALL COMPARED WITH THE THICKNESS OF THE SECTION, ULTRASONIC METHODS ARE CONSIDERED TO BE THE MOST SUITABLE. IT WOULD BE IDEAL TO MAKE SUCH MEASUREMENTS REMOTELY WITH A SYSTEM COMBINING THE STRONG FEATURES OF ULTRASONI ...
