  1. MATERIALS TO ASSIST IN RECRUITMENT AND PREPARATION OF STENOCAPTIONERS

    SBC: Captionamerica            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSES SUBTOPIC 1.D, "DEVELOPMENT OF SELF- INSTRUCTIONAL MODULES, EQUIPMENT, OR SOFTWARE THAT CAN BE USED TO TRAIN COURT STENOGRAPHERS TO DO REAL-TIME CAPTIONING." REAL-TIME CAPTIONING BASED ON COMPUTER-AIDED TRANSCRIPTION (CAT) EQUIPMENT HAS BEEN A MAJOR ADVANCE IN CAPTIONING SERVICES FOR HEARING IMPAIRED PEOPLE. HOWEVER, CAPTIONING AGENCIES ARE CURRENTLY HAVING DIFFICULTY FINDIN ...

  4. "MILD GASIFICATION IN TRANSPORT REACTORS"

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THERE HAS BEEN RECENT INTEREST IN THE SMALL SCALE PRODUCTIONOF LIQUIDS FROM COAL BY MILD GASIFICATION WHICH CAN BE INTEGRATED INTO THE CURRENT ENERGY INFRASTRUCTURE. WHILE MOST WORK ON MILD GASIFICATION IS ADDRESSING DENSE PHASE REACTORS OR LARGE PARTICLES, SEVERAL LABORATORIES REPORT THAT FLASH PYROLYSIS USING SMALL PARTICLES IN DISPERSED-PHASE REACTORS PRODUCES A HIGHER YIELD (SOMETIMES TWO TO T ...

  5. FT-IR INSTRUMENTATION FOR SOLAR CHEMICAL AND PHYSICAL PROCESSES

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE U.S. EPA ESTIMATES THAT 290 MILLION TONS OF HAZARDOUS WASTE ARE PRODUCED ANNUALLY IN THE U.S. THE MOST PROMISING METHOD FOR THE PERMANENT DISPOSAL OF ORGANIC WASTES IS HIGH-TEMPERATURE INCINERATION. WHILE SOLAR INCINERATION OFFERS SIGNIFICANT PROMISE AS A WASTE DISPOSAL TECHNOLOGY, THERE IS A STRONG NEED FOR ON-LINE AND IN-SITU DIAGNOSTICS DURING THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE PROCESS AND FOR EVENTUAL ...

  6. A HELIUM TEMPERATURE REGENERATIVE CRYOCOOLER

    SBC: Alabama Cryogenic Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE BASIC THEORY OF REGENERATIVE CRYOCOOLERS INDICATES THAT OPERATION AT HELIUM TEMPERATURES IS POSSIBLE. HOWEVER,POOR REGENERATOR PERFORMANCE HAS BEEN A BARRIER TO OPERATION BELOW ROUGHLY 10-12 KELVIN. THIS PROPOSAL COVERS THE DEVELOPMENT OF HIGH PERFORMANCE, HELIUM TEMPERATURE REGENERATORS THAT SHOULD LIFT THE OPERATIONAL BARRIER. THE REGENERATORS CAN BE APPLIED WITH VARIOUS REGENERATIVE CYCLES, ...

  7. A MORE ECONOMICAL LOW LOSS NB3SN FOR PULSED FIELD APPLICATIONS, MADE BY A MODIFIED "INTERNAL TIN" PROCESS.

    SBC: Intermagnetics General Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE AIM OF THE PROPOSED WORK IS TO MODIFY THE "INTERNAL TIN"PROCESS TO PROVIDE AN ECONOMICAL, HIGH JC, NB3SN MATERIAL WITH LOW LOSSES IN PULSED FIELD APPLICATIONS. IT WILL BE MANUFACTURED IN THE UNITED STATES TO COMPETE WITH THE OVERSEAS SUPPLIERS OF BRONZE PROCESSED MATERIAL WHICH HAS A HIGHER COST AND LOWER PERFORMANCE CAPABILITY. IGC/ASI HAS BEEN DEVELOPING THE INTERNAL TIN PROCESS FOR THEMANUF ...

  8. CHANGES IN NB3SN CONDUCTORS MADE BY THE "INTERNAL TIN" METHOD, TO IMPROVE MAGNET PERFORMANCE.

    SBC: Intermagnetics General Corp            Topic: N/A

    AS RESULT OF A DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM CARRIED OUT OVER A PERIOD OF MANY YEARS, IGC/ASI HAS BEEN ABLE TO PRODUCE "INTERNAL TIN" MATERIAL IN LONG PIECE LENGTHS WITH FILAMENTSOF A VARIETY OF DIFFERENT COMPOSITIONS. HOWEVER, A LACK OF CONFIDENCE IN THE ABILITY OF NB3SN TO PERFORM RELIABLY IN A RANGE OF DIFFERENT MAGNET DESIGNS EXISTS IN THE MINDS OF MANY MAGNET BUILDERS, MAKING IT VERY DIFFICULT TO COMME ...

  9. UTILIZATION OF FLUIDIZED BED RESIDUALS FOR PRODUCING SYNTHETIC AGGREGATE BY VACUUM EXTRUSION

    SBC: Valley Forge Laboratorytori            Topic: N/A

    THE PROJECT IS DIRECTED TOWARD ASSESSING THE POTENTIAL OF USING RESIDUALS FROM THE AFBC PROCESS AS A SOURCE OF LIME IN PRODUCING A SYNTHETIC AGGREGATE. THE SPENT BED MATERIAL FROM THE FLUIDIZED BED PROCESS WILL BE MIXED WITH PULVERIZED COAL FLY ASH AND OTHER RESIDUALS AND PROCESSED IN A UNIQUE FASHION TO PRODUCE THE AGGREGATE. THE UNIQUE ASPECT INVOLVES THE USE OF A VACUUM EXTRUDER TO PRODUCE A HI ...

  10. A CRYOCOOLER FOR SUPERCONDUCTING DEVICES

    SBC: Alabama Cryogenic Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT IS CONCERNED WITH THE DEVELOPMENT OF A HELIUM TEMPERATURE (4 KELVIN) CRYOCOOLER. THIS CRYOCOOLER CAN BE USED FOR CONTINUOUS COOLING OF SUPERCONDUCTING DEVICES THAT REQUIRE THESE TEMPERATURES. THESE INCLUDE MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING (MRI) SUPERCONDUCTING MAGNET SYSTEMS AND SUPERCONDUCTING QUANTUM INTERFERENCE DETECTOR (SQUID)-BASED MAGNETOENCEPHALOGRAPHY (MEG) SYSTEMS. THE CRYOCOOLER ...
