  1. Easy Access to Freight Locomotives

    SBC: GS Engineering Inc.            Topic: 141FR3

    GS Engineering is proposing an innovative access system for freight locomotives that will make on-boarding and off-boarding significantly easier and safer by reducing the effort required and assisting workers with the climb up and down. The proposed solutions would eliminate the large first step and reduce / eliminate the additional steps required to board the train. An improved anti-skid step wil ...

  2. Corrosion Resistant Prestressing Strand for Prestressed Concrete Bridges

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: 141FH6

    Prestressing strands are the core constituents of prestressed concrete structures. Steel offers important advantages over the emerging classes of composite tendons in this application; susceptibility of prestressing steel to corrosion, however, is a concern. The market appeal of existing corrosion-resistant strands has been dampened by their high cost and some enduring technical concerns. In recen ...

  3. LookOut: A Scenario-based Driving Simulator for Enhancing Hazard Detection and Avoidance

    SBC: Quantum Signal LLC            Topic: 132FH2

    the goal of driver's education is to provide students with the skills necessary to safely and effectively operate a motor vehicle. While effective training has been implemented since the 1930s, research suggest opportunities to enhance driver hazard anticipation and avoidance, which could in turn dramatically impact public safety. Hazard-related training has traditionally been difficult to accom ...

  4. Equity in Agricultural Water Quality Monitoring (EAWQM)

    SBC: AQUA VITAE MONITORING, LLC            Topic: 84

    Problem. The farming industry is a significant contributor of nutrients to the nation & #39;s waterways yet, as a non-point source, remains unregulated by the USEPA. Excessive nitrogen has created hypoxic zones in water bodies such as the Gulf of Mexico, which receives drainage from 41 percent of the continental United States. Nutrient point sources such as POTWs will require costly expansions ...

  5. Value-Added Use of Non-Wood Biomass Combustion Ash Towards Prod. of Sustainable, Economical and High-Performance Geopolymer Concrete

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: 88

    The project will develop value-added applications for non-wood biomass combustion ashes, relying upon their typical chemical composition, in inorganic polymers (geopolymers). as sustainable, safe, high-performance and economically competitive binder materials. Biomass ash-based geopolymers promise important environmental (carbon footprint, energy content), performance (barrier, durability, chemica ...

  6. Glycerol Determination in Biodiesel Fuels using Glycerol Oxidase

    SBC: THE NITRATE ELIMINATION CO INC            Topic: 88

    Whenever biodiesel is made, ten percent of the reaction is the by-product glycerol (also called glycerin). Glycerol has many uses, but it is not a fuel: burning glycerol in any engine will cause irreversible damage. So glycerol must be removed from biodiesel before it can be sold or used. ASTM Intermational, the trade association that sets standards for purity of many industrial products, has set ...

  7. Development of a 3-D multi-planar biopsy system using new ultrasound tomographic

    SBC: Delphinus Medical Technologies, Inc            Topic: NCI

    PROJECT SUMMARY Biopsy capability is an absolute requirement for imaging facilities planning to provide breast cancer screening services. The limitations of mammography have ushered in several other imaging technologies, such as magnetic resonance (MR), positron emission mammography, and breast specific gamma, or molecular breast imaging. However, these are all relatively expensive modalities and ...

  9. Microfabricated Cochlear Electrode Arrays

    SBC: MEMStim LLC            Topic: NIDCD

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In the USA, about 36 million adults suffer from hearing loss and three out of every 1,000 children are born deaf or hard-of-hearing. When conventional hearing aids provide no appreciable benefit, implantable electronicdevices using electrode arrays inside the cochlea are a viable solution. With these cochlear implants, the profoundly deaf achieve reasonable wor ...

  10. Calcaftor, a CFTR stabilizer for Cystic Fibrosis treatment

    SBC: Calista Therapeutics, Inc.            Topic: NIDDK

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Calista Therapeutics has invented Calcaftor, a first-in-class peptide drug that can treat all Cystic Fibrosis (CF) patients. Calcaftor is validated in the gold standard pre-clinical model of CF using F508 -CFTR lung tissue harvested from CF transplant patients. Results from this model demonstrated a gt25 hour duration of action that enables once daily inhaled n ...
