  1. REGENERATIVE HEAT EXCHANGERS FOR CRYOCOOLERS

    SBC: Cryo General Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED PROJECT IS TO FABRICATE AND MEASURE THE PERFORMANCE OF TWO NOVEL DESIGNS FOR REGENERATIVE HEAT EXCHANGERS APPLICABLE TO VARIOUS TYPES OF CRYOCOOLERS, SUCH AS STIRLING AND GIFFORD MCMAHON REFRIGERATORS. THE REGENERATORS PRESENTLY USED ARE LIMITED TO TWO TYPES, AND BASICALLY TWO MATERIALS, DUE TO FABRICATION CONSTRAINTS. THEY ARE RATHER COSTLY, LABOR INTENSIVE, SUBJECT ...

  3. CRYOGENIC RADIO FREQUENCY WINDOW DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: GENESIS LABORATORIES, INC            Topic: N/A

    RADIO FREQUENCY VACUUM WINDOWS COOLED WITH LIQUID HELIUM WILL BE DEVELOPED IN THIS PROJECT. SINGLE CRYSTAL SAPPHIRE WILL BE USED FOR THE DIELECTRIC BARRIER MATERIAL. A COMPRESSIVE SEAL TECHNIQUE WILL BE USED TO FORM THE VACUUM JOINT BETWEEN THE SAPPHIRE AND CONDUCTORS THAT MAKE UP THE WINDOW ASSEMBLY. THIS TECHNIQUE HAS BEEN USED SUCCESSFULLY FOR ROOM TEMPERATURE VACUUM SEALS. IN PHASE I THE SEAL ...

  4. RELATIVISTIC KLYSTRON TWO-BEAM ACCELERATOR DEVELOPMENT APPLICATIONS

    SBC: North Star Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS INCREASING INTEREST WITHIN THE HIGH ENERGY PHYSICS COMMUNITY IN INVESTIGATING ELECTRON INTERACTION PHENOMENA ATENERGIES NEAR 1 TEV. A LINEAR COLLIDER, HAVING A DESIGN BASED ON THE RELATIVISTIC KLYSTRON TWO-BEAM ACCELERATOR (RK/TBA) DESCRIBED BY SESSLER AND YU, OFFERS A PARTICULARLY ATTRACTIVE APPROACH TO ACHIEVING SUCH ENERGIES. IN THIS APPROACH, HIGH ENERGY, LOW CURRENT ELECTRON BEAMS AR ...

  5. THE REDUCED INSTRUCTION SET COMPUTER BASED PROCESSOR MODULE FOR FASTBUS COMPUTATION APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE FASTBUS SYSTEM SPECIFICATION FOR HIGH ENERGY PHYSICS ANDOTHER DATA-SYSTEM APPLICATIONS ANTICIPATES THE USE OF MULTIPLE, HIGH PERFORMANCE PROCESSOR MODULES FOR DATA CONTROL AND EVENT REDUCTION ASSOCIATED WITH EXPERIMENTS IN THE PHYSICAL SCIENCES. EXISTING PROCESSOR DESIGNS WILL BE UNABLE TO COPE WITH THE PROJECTED DATA-REDUCTION AND EVENT-HANDLING REQUIREMENTS OF THE COMPLEX EXPERIMENTS PLANNED ...

  6. ENHANCED COAL COMMINUTION AND CLEANING USING SPARK-GENERATEDFOCUSED SHOCKS

    SBC: Tetra Corporation            Topic: N/A

    ONE OF THE MANY WAYS OF USING COAL AS A FUEL FOR GENERATING ELECTRIC POWER IS TO PULVERIZE IT INTO A VERY FINE SIZE (2-20 MICRONS) AND MIX IT WITH A LIQUID CARRIER SUCH AS WATER. THE RESULTING SLURRY CAN BE TRANSPORTED THROUGH A PIPELINE AND INJECTED DIRECTLY INTO A BOILER FOR COMBUSTION. PULVERIZING COAL INTO A FINE POWDER LEADS TO GREATER ASH REJECTION LEVELS AND THEREFORE TO CLEANER COAL. THIS ...

  7. LANDFILL GAS RECOVERY FOR COMPRESSED NATURAL GAS VEHICLES AND FOOD GRADE CARBON DIOXIDE

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

    LANDFILL GAS (LFG), COMPRISED OF METHANE (CH4) AND CARBON DIOXIDE (CO2) IN ROUGHLY EQUAL PROPORTIONS ALONG WITH MYRIAD TRACE CONTAMINANTS, IS NOW ESSENTIALLY A WASTED RESOURCE THAT COULD PROVIDE LOCALLY SIGNIFICANT SUPPLEMENTALENERGY. LFG HAS BOTH EXPLOSIVE AND TOXIC PROPERTIES THAT MUST BE MITIGATED AT THE LANDFILL SITE; CONSEQUENTLY MOST INSTALLED LFG TECHNOLOGY IS CONTROL ORIENTED AND ADDRESSES ...

  9. AN EFFICIENT LAGRANGIAN METHOD FOR THE COMPUTATION OF THREE-DIMENSIONAL REACTIVE FLOWS ON CONCURRENT COMPUTERS

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE ULTIMATE GOAL OF THE PHASE I AND PHASE II EFFORTS OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP A FAST O(NLOGN) OR O(N) COMPUTATIONAL METHOD FOR THE TREATMENT OF A THREE-DIMENSIONAL, UNSTEADY, REACTIVE FLOW ON A CONCURRENT COMPUTER. IN THE PHASE I FEASIBILITY STUDY, A ROBUST O(N(4/3)) THREE-DIMENSIONAL VORTEX PARTICLE METHOD IS BEING DEVELOPED. THIS METHOD, BASED ON THE PROPER TREATMENT OF THE NEAR- AND FAR-F ...
