  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. SOFT HUB FOR BEARINGLESS ROTORS

    SBC: Advanced Technologies, Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE ROTARY WING INDUSTRY HAS STRIVED TO DEVELOP A BEARINGLESS MAIN ROTOR (BMR), HAVING NO MECHANICAL BEARINGS. ALL TRUE BMR SYSTEMS ARE LIMITED BY THE STRENGTH IN STATIC-FATIGUE LOADS VERSUS FLAPWISE FLEXIBILITY, RESULTING IN LIMITED "G" MANEUVERS FROM A HIGHLY RESPONSIVE ROTOR SYSTEM. ATI'S SOFT HUB ROTOR CONCEPT ALLOWS TILTING OF THE ROTOR DISC MOVING THE VIRTUAL HINGE INBOARD ELIMINATING THIS U ...

  9. IMPROVED ANTENNA FOR SAR CALIBRATOR

    SBC: CENTER FOR REMOTE SENSING, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES A PLAN FOR THE IMPROVEMENT OF THE ANTENNAS OF A SAR CALIBRATOR. THE IMPROVEMENTS ARE SOUGHT IN TERMS OF LOW CROSS POLARIZATION, LOW SIDELOBE, LOW COST AND WEIGHT, IMPROVED STABILITY, ETC. WE PROPOSE TO USE NUMERICAL MODELING AND EVALUATE THE PERFORMANCE OF VARIOUS ANTENNA CONFIGURATIONS UNDER REALISTIC ENVIRONMENT. SEVERAL ANTENNA CONFIGURATIONS WILL BE CONSIDERED. RESULTS ...

  10. NEW FABRICATION METHODS FOR DIMENSIONALLY STABLE GRAPHITE/MAGNESIUM SPACE STRUCTURES

    SBC: CORDEC CORP.            Topic: N/A

    OUR RECENT EFFORTS IN FABRICATING THIN-GAUGE GRAPHITE/MAGNESIUM COMPOSITES HAVE RESULTED IN THE FIRST SUCH MATERIAL TO HAVE A ZERO COEFFICIENT OF THERMAL EXPANSION AND NO PERCEPTIBLE DIMENSIONAL HYSTERESIS DURING CYCLING OVER THE ENTIRE ORBITAL TEMPERATURE RANGE OF -250 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT, EVEN AFTER 100 CYCLES. COUPLED WITH DENSITY OF LESS THAN 2 GRAMS PER CUBIC CENTIMETER, TENSILE STRENGTH OVER ...
