  1. DEVELOPMENT OF A TOTAL PEROXY DETECTOR FOR FLAME AND COMBUSTION MEASUREMENTS

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM IS PROPOSED WHICH WILL DETERMINE THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF AN INSTRUMENT DESIGNED TO PROVIDE THE CAPABILITY OF MEASURING THE CONCENTRATION OF OXY AND PEROXY FREE RADICALS IN COMBUSTION STUDIES. THE DETECTOR FOR THE INSTRUMENT IS BASED ON AN AMBIENT FREE RADICAL DETECTOR WHICH USES AN AMPLIFICATION CHAIN REACTION BETWEEN THE FREE RADICALS AND CO AND NO WHICHRES ...

  2. THE PREPARATION OF HIGH TEMPERATURE INTERMETALLIC COMPOUNDS AT LOW TEMPERATURES

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    INTERMETALLIC COMPOUNDS, IN PARTICULAR ALUMINIDES, SILICIDES, AND BERYLIDES, ARE KNOWN FOR THEIR HIGH MELTING POINTS AND CORROSION AND OXIDATION RESISTANCE. MANY OF THESE COMPOUNDS HAVE LOW DENSITIES AND VERY HIGH STRENGTHS AND, THEREFORE, ARE OF INTEREST FOR HIGH TEMPERATURE APPLICATIONS. HOWEVER, CONVENTIONAL PROCESSING OF INTERMETALLIC COMPOUNDS SUFFERS SEVERE LIMITATIONS, NAMELY REACTIONS WITH ...

  4. PREMONOCHROMATOR X-RAY OPTIC SUBSTRATE DEVELOPMENT FOR NEW GENERATION SYNCHROTRON SOURCE BEAMLINES

    SBC: Aracor            Topic: N/A

    THE NEW GENERATION OF SYNCHROTRON RADIATION (SR) SOURCES PROMISES TO EXTEND SIGNIFICANTLY THE REGIMES OF PHOTON ENERGY AND INTENSITY AVAILABLE TO MATERIALS SCIENTISTS AND OTHER RESEARCHERS. A KEY CHALLENGE TO DEVELOPING THESE NEW SR SOURCES IS THE CONSTRUCTION OF PREMONOCHROMATOR X-RAY BEAMLINE OPTICS THAT SURVIVE AND FUNCTION UNDER THE INTENSE HEAT LOADING PRODUCED BY THESE MACHINES. AN EFFICIENT ...

  5. A THREE-DIMENSIONAL DISPLAY FOR EMISSION COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECT OF THE PLANNED RESEARCH IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF PRODUCING A TRUE THREE-DIMENSIONAL (3-D) DISPLAY FOR VIEWING THE IMAGERY PRODUCED BY EMISSION COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY SYSTEMS IN THE FIELD OF MEDICINE. THE ULTIMATE OBJECTIVE IS TO DISPLAY HARD AND/OR SOFT COPY COMPUTER-GENERATED HOLOGRAMS VERY RAPIDLY. DURING PHASE I OF THE PROGRAM, A HOLOGRAPHIC DISPLAY INSTRUMENT (HDI) WILL BE ...

  6. OPERATIONAL MODEL FOR DESIGN OF OPTIMAL WIND FARM ARRAYS

    SBC: AEROVIRONMENT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    WIND FARM DESIGNERS REQUIRE AN OPERATIONAL TOOL TO DESIGN OPTIMAL WIND FARMS ON SITES WITH IRREGULAR TERRAIN AND NONUNIFORM WIND FLOWS. SUCH SITES WILL BE MORE IMPORTANT ASTHE WIND FARM DENSITY INCREASE IN THE MOST WINDY AREAS, FLAT SITES BECOME UNAVAILABLE, AND REDUCED TAX CREDITS MAKE CAREFUL MANAGEMENT OF ENERGY PRODUCTION CRITICAL TO ECONOMICVIABILITY. THE DESIGN TOOL PROPOSED INCORPORATES WIN ...

  7. A CRYOCOOLER STAGE FOR OPERATION BETWEEN 20 AND 4 K

    SBC: Alabama Cryogenic Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1987 Department of Energy
  8. ETHANOL-WATER FRACTIONATION BY A NON-BOILING HEAT AND MASS TRANSFER PROCESS

    SBC: Albers Research & Dev. Assocs            Topic: N/A

    FEASIBILITY AND FUNDAMENTAL OPERATION OF AN INNOVATIVE NONBOILING MINIMUM ENERGY HEAT AND MASS TRANSFER DEVICE WILLBE INVESTIGATED. AN ETHANOL/WATER BINARY SYSTEM WAS SELECTED BECAUSE OF ITS COMMERCIAL IMPORTANCE. THE HEAT ANDMASS TRANSFER DEVICE USES AN INERT CARRIER GAS OPERATING AT ATMOSPHERIC PRESSURE TO EVAPORATE ETHANOL AND WATER AND THEN TO CONDENSE WATER AND ETHANOL IN A MANNER SO AS TO RE ...

  9. A BORON PHOSPHIDE SEMICONDUCTOR NEUTRON DETECTOR

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SINCE THEIR DISCOVERY NEUTRONS HAVE REMAINED ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT FORMS OF RADIATION TO DETECT. THE MOST EFFECTIVE NEUTRON DETECTORS IN CURRENT USE ARE GAS FILLED DETECTORS EMPLOYING EITHER 3HE OR BF3 AS THE DETECTION MEDIUM. UNFORTUNATELY, GAS FILLED DETECTORS SUFFER FROM A NUMBER OF DEFICIENCIES INCLUDING LARGE SIZE (GASES HAVE LOW VOLUMETRIC EFFICIENCY FOR STOPPING NEUTRONS), MECHANICAL FR ...

  10. LASER-BASED ULTRASONIC EXCITATION AND SPECKLE INTERFEROMETRIC DETECTION SYSTEMS FOR NONDESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION OF HIGH-TEMPERATURE CERAMICS

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

    THE USE OF ADVANCED MATERIALS SUCH AS CERAMICS, CERAMIC COMPOSITES, AND HIGH TEMPERATURE COATINGS HAS LED TO IMPROVED PERFORMANCE OF CRITICAL HEAT ENGINE AND ENERGY-RELATED COMPONENTS AND SYSTEMS. HOWEVER, THE REQUIREMENTS FOR NONDESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION (NDE) OF CERAMIC MATERIALS RESULTING FROM COMPLEX GEOMETRY, INHOMOGENEITY, REDUCED FLAW SIZE, AND ADVERSE PROCESSING ENVIRONMENTS HAVE PRODUCED LON ...
