  1. Electromagnetic Detection of Tornadoes

    SBC: Airborne Research Associates            Topic: N/A

    The ultimate objective of this project is to develop an instrument capable of remote detection and location of tornadoes and/or storms containing tornadoes. There are many reports, both scientific and anecdotal, suggesting that tornadoes and tornadic thunderstorms emit anomalous electromagnetic (EM) radiation-both RF and luminous. This radiation is characterized by unusually high rates of EM pulse ...

  3. 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 ...

  6. NONDESTRUCTIVE EXAMINATION TO DIRECTLY MEASURE STEAM GENERATOR TUBE U-BEND VIBRATORY RESPONSE

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    ON FEBRUARY 9, 1991, AT THE MIHAMA UNIT 2 NUCLEAR POWER STATION, OPEARTED BY KANSAI ELECTRIC CORPORATION, A STEAM GENERATOR TUBE RUPTURED AND RELEASED APPROXIMATELY 9,000 GALLONS OF REACTOR COOLANT INTO THE SECONDARY SYSTEM. THE LEAKAGE CAUSED A RAPID DEPRESSURIZATION OF THE REACTOR COOLANT SYSTEM, WHICH RESULTED IN AN AUTOMATIC REACTOR TRIP AND ACTUATION OF THE HIGH PRESSURE SAFETY INJECTION SYST ...

  7. A Dynamical Instrument for Machining Centers

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    In the program, we will develop a measurement system based on the dynamics of the machining process. This system will use the variation in the forces or accelerations occurring during machining to characterize the mechanisms occurring between the cutter and workpiece. This will provide real time indications of the finish of the surface that is being created, the proximity to the chatter threshol ...

  8. DETECTION OF INCIPIENT CORROSION IN NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS

    SBC: MASSACHUSETTS TECHNOLOGICAL LABORATORY            Topic: N/A

    ACOUSTIC FIELDS CAN BE DESIGNED TO COAX LIQUID BORNE SUBMICRONIC PARTICLES TO ANNOUNCE THEIR PRESENCE LOUDER THAN THE USUAL SCATTERING SIGNALS WHICH ARE PRIMARILY DETERMINED BY THE DENSITY AND COMPRESSIBILITY CONTRAST BETWEEN THE PARTICLE MATERIAL AND THE HOST FLUID. WE EXPECT A SIGNAL ENHANCEMENT OF AT LEAST 60DB. THE KEY CONCEPT IS TO COAX THE PARTICLES TO SOFT CAVITATE AND DETECT THE ENSUING TR ...

  9. A mobile Boundary Layer Radar Wind Profiler for Remote Measurements of Vertical Wind Shear

    SBC: Prosensing, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This project will develop a mobile boundary layer radar wind profiler intended for rapid deployment in regions of severe storm activity. The goal of this research will be investigate the feasibility of developing a low cost, low maintenance, mobile instrument capable of profiling vertical and horizontal wind velocities in the lowest 3 km of the atmosphere. The system's mobility and quick setup t ...

  10. High Resolution Surface Current Mapping Radar System for Intercoastal Waterways

    SBC: Prosensing, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Quadrant Engineering has recently developed a wide bandwidth microwave radar system, named CDKS, capable of processing radar signals using the Delta K technique. Design goals were to develop a ruggedized, compact, and low-cost instrument for operational use as part of NOAA's harbor monitoring system. In this project, the first field experiments are to be carried out using the CDKS system. These ...
