  1. A Ruggedized System for Measuring Extreme Winds

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

    We will develop technology, termed a Ruggedized Wind Measurement System (RWMS), to measure directly extreme winds with high space and time resolution, focusing on the winds that occur beneath hurricanes at land fall. This development effort will include design, fabrication of two prototype RWMS units, and a series of proof-of-concept demonstrations in strong mountain-induced downslope and severe t ...

  2. NO MOVING PARTS RAIN GAUGE

    SBC: THE CORE GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE U.S. WEATHER SERVICE PRESENTLY USES A "TIPPING BUCKET" RAIN GAUGE FOR MEASURING RAIN ACCUMULATION. THIS DEVICE IS SENSITIVE TO WIND AND MOTION (AS ON BUOYS), CANNOT MEASURE RAIN RATE, AND REQUIRES FREQUENT MAINTENANCE, BECAUSE OF MOVING PARTS. AN ALTERNATIVE DEVICE IS BEING PROPOSED, WHICH INCORPORATES A RIGID, RESONANT TUBE, CLOSED AT THE TOP BY AN ELECTRO-ACOUSTIC TRANSDUCER, AND AT THE BOTT ...

  3. Analysis Software for Near-Field Optical Microscopes

    SBC: Field Precision            Topic: N/A

    The near-field scanning optical microscope can supply information on the shape and electrical properties of surfaces with nanometer resolution. The quantitative interpretation of images is difficult because of the difficulty of electromagnetic field solutions in the near-field limit. We propose to supply software to aid in this analysis. The finite-element programs generate two and three-dimension ...

  4. New Methods for Evaluating Thermal Performance of Protective Clothing for

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A growing number of fire fighters are suffering third degree burns; this has led to questions about the adequacy of thermal protective performance (TPP) measurements for protective clothing. A new heat flux sensor, whose response approximates that of skin, will be developed to provide better measurements of heat transfer in TPP tests. This sensor will be used with nonlinear parameter estimation an ...

  5. Thermographic Phosphor Based Heat Flux Sensors

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    As fire protection engineering moves towards the implementation of performance- based fire codes, the use of validated fire models is becoming a necessity. Part of the validation process involves demonstrating model capabilities for predicting key fire environment parameters. One of the key parameters for estimating time to ignition and fire growth is the heat transfer rate to compartment surfaces ...

  6. ROBUST DESIGN ENGINEERING WORKSTATION

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: N/A

    MSI PROPOSES TO INCORPORATE BACKGROUND SUBSTITUTION OF "FAULTY MODELS" IN CAD DESIGN SIMULATION OF ELECTRONIC CIRCUITS TO PERFORM A "DESIGN OF EXPRIMENTS" DETERMINATION OF SENSITIVITY TO PARAMETRIC VARIATION IN COMPONENTS. THE INFORMATION LEARNED WILL BE USED TO SELECT COMPONENTS THAT WILL HAVE A LONGER LIFE, AND GREATER DURABILITY. THIS FORM OF ANALYSIS COMBINED WITH WORST CASE SENSITIVITY ANALYS ...

  7. ELECTROMAGNETIC ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS WITHIN A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    MRC PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A SAFETY PERFORMANCE INDICATOR (PI) OF THE ELECTROMAGNETIC (EM) PROTECTION STATUS OF A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT (NPP). WE BELIEVE THAT SUCH A PI IS NEEDED BECAUSE: (1) EM ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION IS ON THE INCREASE,(2) ADDITIONAL EM THREATS MUST BE EVALUATED, AND (3) DISRUPTION OF NPP OPERATIONS BY EM EFFECTS CAN AND MUST BE AVOIDED. PREVIOUS STUDIES HAVE ADDRESSED THE ISSUE OF E ...

  9. IMPROVED NEUTRON SPECTROMETER AND EXPOSURE METER

    SBC: Shonka Research Associates            Topic: N/A

    THE UNCERTAINTY IN MEASURING NEUTRON DOSE EQUIVALENT RATES RESULTS IN UNCERTAINTY IN ASSIGNMENT OF THE PROPER DOSE TO OCCUPATIONAL RECORDS AND CAN RESULT IN IMPROPER IMPLEMENTATION OF CONTROLS TO LIMIT THE EXPOSURE. A NOVEL PORTABLE NEUTRON SPECTROMETER IS PROPOSED WHICH WILL REDUCE THE UNCERTAINTY OF SUCH MEASUREMENTS TO LESS THAN 20%. MANYCOMPONENTS OF THIS DEVICE ARE COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE. SYS ...

  10. Diode Laser-Based Optical Flux Monitor for MBE Control

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A diode laser method for the real-time measurement of absolute flux concentrations and spatial profiles of atomic beams used in MBE will be tested. The proposed method uses the doubled output of a near-infrared diode laser to access atomic absorption lines of species such as Ga, Al and In. The detection method will combine high frequency wavelength modulation and noise canceler approaches in order ...
