  1. Electromagnetic Resonance Sensors for Determination of Moisture Content in Concrete

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

    The overall quality and the comprehensive strength, in particular, of concrete are critically dependent on the water content in the concrete mixture. It is also essential to know if the concrete has reached a stage of moisture equilibrium before surface finishes such as paint or carpet can be applied. At present, no reliable method or easy-to-use instrument exists for determining the moisture co ...

  2. Process-Based Assurance Product Suite

    SBC: Arca Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Arca proposes research leading to development of a suite of methodology support products to help meet the need for innovative assurance techniques appropriate for emerging information technologies. The product will consist of a licensable methodology and supporting materials for specifying, building, and evaluating assurance arguments for products and systems based on the capability of security en ...

  3. CAD of Non-linear Optical Properties of Thin-film Structures

    SBC: Autometric Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal addresses development of CAD software for simulating non-linear optical materials. The software will provide a virtual lab in which experimental setups are simulated. The proposed software is based on the use of a Maxwell differential equation solver, the Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) method. This numerical method has been developed by numerous researchers since 1968 and no ...

  4. Algorithms for Health Care Quality Management and Outcomes Assessment

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    American health care is in the midst of momentous change. Quality improvement principles are being used increasingly to enhance productivity and efficiency of health care delivery and to help contain costs. In producing patient outcomes and resource utilization measures, it is vital to control appropriately for case mix (i.e., differences in patients due, e.g., to illness severity) in the predicti ...

  5. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Development of an On-Line Density Measurement Technique for Fluid Flow with a 0.001% Accuracy

    SBC: HY-Tech Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    The accurate measurement of fluid densities flowing in pipes is important for custodial monitoring of valuable and/or controlled substances. Most on-line fluid flow meters require independent determination of the fluid density while Coriolis type meters, which directly measure the fluid mass, are off-lie devices. HY-Tech is proposing to develop a laser based diagnostic techique for measuring the ...
