  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. THE USE OF NEURAL NETWORKS FOR PROGRAMMING AND CONTROL OF SENSORY BASED ROBOTICS

    SBC: Advanced Technology & Research            Topic: N/A

    TWO MAJOR IMPEDIMENTS TO THE EFFECTIVE USE OF ROBOTICS ARE 1) THE DIFFICULTY IN DEVELOPING ROBUST, ADAPTIVE, GOAL-DIRECTED BEHAVIOR BASED ON SENSORY INTERACTIVE CONTROL AND 2) THE DIFFICULTY IN REPROGRAMMING A ROBOTIC SYSTEM TO CARRY OUT NEW TASKS. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS WORK IS TO DEVELOP A HYBRID CONTROL SYSTEM MERGING TRAINABLE NEURAL NETWORK MODULES WITH A WELL-STRUCTURED KNOWLEDGE BASED CONTRO ...

  3. AN ADVANCED HYBRID NEURAL NETWORK FOR ROBOT DYNAMICS MODELING

    SBC: Advanced Technology & Research            Topic: N/A

    DYNAMICS MODELING IS IMPORTANT FOR THE DESIGN, ANALYSIS, SIMULATION, AND CONTROL OF ROBOTIC AND OTHER COMPUTER CONTROLLED MECHANICAL SYSTEMS. THE FORMULATION OF A MODEL AND THE REQUIREMENTS IMPOSED ON THE COMPUTATIONAL ALGORITHMSDIFFER FROM ONE APPLICATION TO THE OTHER. TODAY, ACCURATE MODELING CAN ONLY BE ACHIEVED BY HAVING A THOROUGH UNDERSTANDING OF THE PHYSICS OF THE SYSTEM IN ADDITION TO PERF ...

  4. NONINTRUSIVE PHOTOACOUSTIC CHARACTERIZATION OF CRITICAL PROPERTIES IN HIGH TC SUPERCONDUCTING MATERIALS

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    THE RECENT DISCOVERY OF NEW HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTOR SYSTEMS HAS CREATED A NEED TO DEVELOP COMPATIBLE MEASUREMENTTECHNIQUES TO CHARACTERIZE THE ELECTRICAL, STRUCTURAL, ACOUSTIC AND OPTICAL PROPERTIES OF THESE MATERIALS. ALTHOUGH MANY STANDARD METHODS OF MEASURING CONVENTIONAL SUPERCONDUCTING MATERIALS CAN BE ADAPTED TO NEW HIGH TC SUPERCONDUCTOR SYSTEMS, EFFECTIVE MEASUREMENT OF CRITICAL PR ...

  9. DYNAMICS OF SHOCKWAVE DISTRUCTION OF KIDNEY STONES

    SBC: Enig Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A NEW, PROPOSED SECTOR SHOCK LITHOTRIPSY (SSL) TECHNIQUE WILL BE COMPARED DIRECTLY WITH AN ELLIPTIC FOCUSED SHOCK (FS) DEVICE REPRESENTATIVE OF THE MOST WIDELY USED CLINICAL SHOCK WAVE SOURCE. THE PRESSURE FIELD PATTERNS AND PERFORMANCE AGAINST SIMULATED AND HUMAN KIDNEY STONES IN WATER WILL BE DETERMINED. THE SSL TECHNIQUE EMPLOYS AN ESTABLISHED, U.S. TECHNOLOGY, WHOSE MEDICAL APPLICATION POTENTI ...
