  1. THE USE OF STRAW BALES FOR BUILDING RURAL LOW INCOME HOUSING

    SBC: Straw-bale Construction            Topic: N/A

    STRAW BALES HAVE BEEN USED FOR AGRICULTURAL BUILDINGS IN THE PAST. IT IS BELIEVED THAT THIS METHODOLOGY CAN NOW BE ADAPTED TO PROVIDE SAFE, LOW COST HOUSING FOR RURAL COMMUNITIES. QUESTIONS TO BE ANSWERED ARE - THE EXTENT OF THE AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROBLEM IN RURAL COMMUNITIES - THE TECHINCAL PROBLEMS OF PRODUCING SUITABLE STRAW BALES - THE DESIGN OF A STRAW BALE HOUSE WHICH MAXIMIZES THE OPPORTINI ...

  2. A QUICK DIAGNOSTIC TEST TO DETECT A DEADLY BACTERIA INFECTING CHANNEL CATFISH

    SBC: Athens Research And Technology            Topic: N/A

    COMMERCIAL CATFISH PRODUCTION IS SIGNIFICANTLY IMPAIRED BY INFECTIOUS DISEASES, A MAJOR CAUSE OF ECONOMIC LOSSES TO THE CATFISH PRODUCER. ONE OF THE MOST DETRIMENTAL OF THESE INFECTIOUS DISEASES IS ENTERIC SEPTICEMIA OF CATFISH (ESC) CAUSED BY EDWARDSIELLA ICTALURI. IN 1987, APPROXIMATELY $4 MILLION WORTH OF FISH IN MISSISSIPPI ALONE DIED FROM ESC. PROMPT TREATMENT OF INFECTED FISH INCREASES THE C ...

  3. SELF-ASSEMBLED THIN FILM SENSORS FOR AQUACULTURE PROCESS CONTROL

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

    THE RAPID INCREASE IN WORLD SEAFOOD PRODUCTION BY AQUACULTURAL PROCESSES HAS PLACED A COMPETITIVE BURDEN ON THE UNITED STATES FISHING AND FISH FARMING INDUSTRIES. ECONOMIC PRESSURES HAVE DICTATED THE DEVELOPMENT OF HIGH DENSITY CLOSED-CYCLE AQUACULTURE (HDCCA) UNIT OPERATIONS TO PROVIDE SEAFOOD PRODUCTS AT MINIMAL UNIT COST. QUALITY CONTROL IN HDCCA IS MANDATED BY THE COMPLEXITY OF WATER RECYCLING ...

  4. A PRACTICAL METHOD TO DETERMINE VERTICAL HYDRAULIC CONDUCTIVITY IN LOW-PERMEABLE SOIL

    SBC: Daniel B. Stephens & Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    VERTICAL SATURATED HYDRAULIC CONDUCTIVITY OF SOIL ABOVE A DEEP WATER TABLE IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT CHARACTERISTICS GOVERNING FLOW AND TRANSPORT. THIS PARAMETER IS USED IN WATER BALANCE STUDIES OF CROP PRODUCTION, IRRIGATION AND DRAINAGE SYSTEM DESIGN, RANGELANDAND FOREST WATERSHED MANAGEMENT, SOIL CONTAMINATION ASSESSMENTS, AND REMEDIAL ACTION DESIGN. THE CURRENT METHODS EITHER REQUIRE ONE TO ...

  5. HIGH RESOLUTION SOIL WATER CONTENT PROFILING

    SBC: Intercomp            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP A SIMPLE TO USE, QUANTITATIVE DEVICE TO ACCURATELY MEASURE SOIL WATER CONTENT WITH SUFFICIENT RESOLUTION TO DEFINE WETTING FRONTS DUE TO RAIN EVENTS IN DEPTH PROFILES. THIS GEOPHYSICAL TOOL SENSES CHANGE IN THE ELECTROMAGNETIC ENVIRONMENT, SPECIFICALLY THE DIELECTRIC CONSTANT OF THE SOIL, WHICH IS DIRECTLY RELATED TO SOIL WATER CONTENT. THE SOIL WATER CONTENT PROFILING DEVICE ...

  6. DEVELOPMENT OF A CONTAMINATION MONITOR USING VISUAL IDENTIFICATION

    SBC: Shonka Research Associates            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT WILL RESEARCH AND DEVELOP A FLOOR MONITOR FOR QUICK DETERMINATION OF RADIOACTIVE CONTAMINATION. THE MONITOR WILL UTILIZE A NEW PORTABLE TECHNOLOGY (INCLUDING SUPPORT ELECTRONICS). IT WILL HAVE THE CAPABILITY TO MEASURE BETA CONTAMINATION BELOW 5000 DPM/100 CM SQUARED WHEN AVERAGED OVER ONE SQUARE METER AND COVER AN AREA AS LARGE AS SEVERAL SQUARE FEET PER SECOND. IT WILL ALSO BE CAPAB ...

  7. DEVELOPMLENT OF A LAUNDRY MONITOR FOR DETECTION OF HOT PARTICLE CONTAMINATION

    SBC: Shonka Research Associates            Topic: N/A

    TWO APPROACHES WILL BE EXAMINED TO SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVE THESENSITIVITY OF LAUNDRY MONITORS TO DETECT AND SPECIFY LOCATION OF HOT PARTICLES ON LAUNDERED GARMENTS. THESE PROPOSED TECNIQUES HAVE HIGH POTENTIAL FOR DETECTING BOTH LOW ENERGY BETA AND ALPHA PARTICLE RADIATION AS WELL AS IMPROVING SENSITIVITY BY REDUCING BACKGROUND COUNT RATE.

  8. Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering For Field

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

    The use of sub-therapeutic concentrations of anti-microbial agents in animal feed has contributed to theproductivity of the U.S. meat and dairy industries by preventing infectious diseases, by decreasing theamount of feed required and by increasing the rate of animal weight gain. However, failure to observerecommended practices of drug withdrawal can result in concentrations of antibiotic residue ...

  9. Development Of A Ready-to-assemble

    SBC: Blue Ridge Timberwrights            Topic: N/A

    The ready-to-assemble (RTA) construction system is a new method for assembling wood structuresbuilt from the following engineered wood products: parallel strand lumber (PSL), laminated strandlumber (LSL), and laminated veneer lumber (LVL). The RTA system is designed for rapid assemblyby small crews of unskilled labor using common hand tools. The design of the RTA systemincorporates engineered w ...

  10. A Multiple Antigen Direct Elisa For Diagnosing

    SBC: Commonwealth Biotechnologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Equine infectious anemia virus (EIAV) is a retrovirus that causes a chronic infection in horses. In theabsence of a vaccine, the control of this disease depends on the diagnosis and elimination of infectedhorses. Currently approved diagnostic procedures utilize agar gel diffusion (AGID), or enzyme-linkedimmunosorbant (ELISA) methodologies to detect antibodies against the virus in horse sera as e ...
