  1. SOLAR HEATED ENCLOSED NURSERY WITHIN A POND TO HEAD START SHRIMP.

    SBC: Ocean Ventures Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSAL DESCRIBES A METHOD OF HEAD STARTING SHRIMP IN AGREENHOUSE COVERED ENCLOSURE WITHIN CULTURE PONDS. PONDS ARE EQUIPED WITH INTERNAL DIVIDERS SO THAT THEY CAN BE DIVIDED INTO THREE UNITS. UNIT A IS 0.08 ACRE, UNIT B WILL BE 0.4 ACRE AND UNIT C WILL BE THE 2.0 ACRE FARM POND. A GREENHOUSE WILL BE PLACED OVER UNIT A. SHRIMP WILL BE GROWNIN THE GREENHOUSE UNTIL THE WATER TEMPERATURE REACHES ...

  2. SELECTIVE LASER SINTERING

    SBC: Nova Graphics International            Topic: N/A

    THREE-DIMENSIONAL PARTS OF GENERAL SHAPE CAN BE PRODUCED DIRECTLY FROM A COMPUTER DATABASE WITHOUT PART-SPECIFIC TOOLING OR HUMAN INTERVENTION BY A NEW PROCESS CALLED SELECTIVE LASER SINTERING. EACH BUILT-UP LAYER CORRESPONDS TO A CROSS-SECTION OF THE PART. A THIN LAYER OF POWDER IS FIRST DEPOSITED INTO A CONTAINER. THE POWDER SURFACE IS RASTER-SCANNED WITH A HIGH-POWER LASER BEAM FROM ABOVE. BEAM ...

  3. A SOFTWARE IMPLEMENTED FAULT-TOLERANCE (SIFT) LAYER FOR RELIABLE COMPUTING ON MASSIVELY PARALLEL COMPUTERS

    SBC: Reliable Computer Technology            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS A COMMON MISCONCEPTION THAT MASSIVELY PARALLEL COMPUTERS ARE NATURALLY RELIABLE, FAULT-TOLERANT, AND RECONFIGURABLE BECAUSE OF THEIR ABUNDANCE OF RESOURCES. IN FACT, THE ONLY ATTRIBUTE GAINED BY MULTIPLE PROCESSORS IS A HIGHER TOTAL FAILURE RATE. HOWEVER, DESIGNERS ARE LARGELY IGNORING THIS ISSUE TO CONCENTRATE ON THE CONSTRUCTION OF SYSTEMS WITH PEAK PERFORMANCE BEYOND THE TERAFLOP BOU ...

  5. A NEW DIFFUSING-VORTEX NUMERICAL SCHEME

    SBC: Intelligent Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A DIFFUSING-VORTEX METHOD, FOR SOLVING THE TWO-DIMENSIONAL INCOMPRESS NAVIER-STOKES EQUATION, WILL BE EXTENDED AND APPLIED TO THE EXTERNAL INCOMPRESSIBLE VISCOUS FLOW OVER A GENERALLY SMOOTH BLUNT BODY. THE NUMERICAL ADVANTAGES OVER OTHER LAGRANGIAN VORTEX METHODS WILL BE FURTHER DEMONSTRATEDBY REDUCING TOTAL CPU TIME AND BY AVOIDING CUT-OFF PROCEDURES. THE NEW APPROACH WHICH IS AN APPROXIMATE EXP ...

  6. ENHANCED CELL CULTURE GROWTH RATES

    SBC: Taylor S R & Assocs            Topic: N/A

    COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS OF BIOTECHNOLOGY WILL BE LIMITED TO HIGH VALUE PRODUCTS AS LONG AS PRODUCTION COSTS ARE CONTROLLED BY THE CAPACITY OF EXISTING CULTURE SYSTEMS. ULTRASONICALLY ENHANCED DIFFUSION CAN ACCELERATE PLANT AND CELL GROWTH AND THESE PHENOMENA OPERATE AT THE NEAR MOLECULAR LEVEL, AN EXTENT OF EFFECT WHICH IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH GROSS MECHANICAL AGITATION. THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED W ...

  7. VALIDATION & TESTING OF THE VAM2D COMPUTER CODE

    SBC: Hydrogeologic Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1988 Nuclear Regulatory Commission
  8. ULTRA-HIGH-SPEED GAS CHROMATOGRAPH

    SBC: Ionics International, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE USE OF MICROBORE CAPILLARY COLUMNS FOR GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY PROMISES TO FACILITATE THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN INSTRUMENT CAPABLE OF RESOLVING AS MANY AS 15 COMPONENTS PERSECOND. THUS, MANY ANALYSES COULD BE COMPLETED IN JUST A FEW SECONDS PERMITTING, FOR THE FIRST TIME, REAL-TIME ANALYSIS BY GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY. TO TRANSLATE THIS CONCEPT INTO A PRACTICAL INSTRUMENT, WE SHALL HAVE TO REDESIGN EVERY COM ...

  9. INSTRUMENTATION FOR HIGH RESOLUTION ELECTRON LOSS SPECTROSCOPY FOR VIBRATIONAL ANALYSIS OF ROUGH PRACTICAL SURFACES

    SBC: Ionwerks, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ELECTRON LOSS SPECTROSCOPY FOR VIBRATIONAL ANALYSIS IS AN ESTABLISHED TECHNIQUE BEST SUITED FOR ADSORBATES ON POLISHEDMETALLIC SURFACES. IONWERKS PROPOSES A DEPARTURE FROM THE STANDARD INSTRUMENTATION WHICH ALLOW VIBRATIONAL MEASUREMENTS ON PRACTICAL SURFACES SUCH AS ROUGH METALLIC OXIDES. OUR TECHNIQUE DERIVES INCREASED SENSITIVITY AND VIBRATIONAL RESOLUTION FROM USING LOW ENERGY ELECTRONS IN A W ...

  10. PROTECTED GRAPHITE MATERIALS FOR HIGH TEMPERATURE INDUSTRIALAPPLICATIONS

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE UNIQUE PHYSICAL AND MECHANICAL PROPERTIES EXHIBITED BY GRAPHITE MAKES IT AN ATTRACTIVE ENGINEERING MATERIAL FOR HIGH TEMPERATURE INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS. HOWEVER, THE STRONG CHEMICAL REACTIVITY OF GRAPHITE IN OXIDIZING ENVIRONMENTS AT ELEVATED TEMPERATURES REQUIRES THAT GRAPHITESURFACES BE PROTECTED IN SUCH APPLICATIONS. A NEED EXISTS: FOR MODIFYING THE SURFACE CHEMISTRY OF GRAPHITE, FOR DEVEL ...
