  1. NANOMETER-SIZE STEP HEIGHT TEST STRUCTURES

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    MCNC PROPOSES A FEASIBILITY STUDY AND EVALUATION OF THREE PROMISING APPROACHES TO THE FABRICATION OF SURFACE TEST STRUCTURES ON SILICON. SURFACE FEATURES ON THE FIRST STRUCTURE WILL BE PRODUCED BY CONTROLLABLY ETCHING THERMALLYGROWN OXIDES. FEATURES ON THE SECOND WILL BE MADE BY ETCHING PIEZOELECTRIC THIN FILMS. USING THE PIEZOELECTRIC FILM AS PART OF A CAPACITOR, STEP-HEIGHT CAN BE VARIED AND PRO ...

  2. INVESTIGATION OF DISCRETE STOCHASTIC MODELING OF THUNDERSTORM WINDS

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECT OF THIS PROPOSED RESEARCH IS TO PRODUCE MORE RELIABLE ESTIMATES OF EXTREME WINDS IN THE UNITED STATES BY SEPARATELY ANALYZING WINDS DUE TO THUNDERSTORMS AND LARGE SCALE EXTRATROPICAL STORMS. THE PRESENT STATE OF THE ART METHODS FOR ESTIMATING DESIGN WIND SPEEDS IN NON-HURRICANE REGIONS OF THE UNITED STATES DO NOT DISTINGUISH BETWEEN WINDS ORIGINATING FROM THE LARGE SCALE EXTRATROPICAL P ...

  3. DEMONSTRABLY CORRECT COMPILATION (DCC)

    SBC: Baldwin/mchugh Assoc., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A TECHNIQUE FOR OBTAINING TRUSTWORTHY COMPILATION BASED ON A COMPILATION CHECKER (SIMILAR TO A PROOF CHECKER) IS PROPOSED. THE TRANSFORMATIONS USED IN A COMPILER WILL BE FORMALLY SPECIFIED AND VERIFIED USING INTERPRETER EQUIVALENCE METHODS. THE COMPILER WILL BE INSTRUMENTED TO PRODUCE A TRACE OF THE TRANSFORMATIONS APPLIED IN THE COMPILATION OF A GIVEN PROGRAM. THE COMPILATION CHECKER WILL VALIDAT ...

  5. AN INTERACTIVE SOFTWARE SHELL FOR EXPERIMENT SIMULATION IN SCIENCE EDUCATION

    SBC: QUANTUM RESEARCH SERVICES            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP THE RUDIMENTS, IN PHASE I, OF A SOFTWARE SHELL THAT WILL ALLOW TEACHERS AND OTHERS INTERESTED IN SCIENTIFIC EDUCATION TO CONSTRUCT SPECIFIC SCIENTIFIC "EXPERIMENTS" ON PERSONAL COMPUTERS. THE SHELL WILL INCORPORATE A GRAPHICAL USER INTERFACE, ALREADY DEVELOPED IN PREVIOUS WORK, GRAPHICS FILES, AND OTHER STORAGE AND PRESENTATION UTILITIES IN A WAY THAT DRAMATICALLY STREAMLINES ...

  6. LIMITED-SCAN BACKSCATTER TECHNIQUE FOR DETECTION OF HIDDEN CORROSION

    SBC: QUANTUM RESEARCH SERVICES            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO INVESTIGATE IN PHASE I A VOLUME-SPECIFIC, LIMITED-SCAN PHOTON BACKSCATTER TECHNIQUE FOR THE DETECTION OF LOCALIZED CHANGES IN COMPOSITION AND/OR THICKNESS OF A LAYER HIDDEN UNDER A SURFACE LAYER, AS A GENERIC ANALOGUE OFTHE HIDDEN CORROSION PROBLEM. FEATURES INHERENT IN THE WELL-ESTABLISHED GAMMA-RAY BACKSCATTER DENSITY GAUGE CONCEPTS AND IN BACKSCATTER IMAGING TOMOGRAPHY INDICATE TH ...

  7. TWO-COMPONENT CUTTING/COOLANT FLUIDS FOR HIGH-SPEED MACHINING

    SBC: Triangle Research and Development Corporation            Topic: N/A

    A PHASE I PROGRAM IS PROPOSED TO INVESTIGATE THE POTENTIAL FOR DEVELOPMENT OF NEW CUTTING/LUBRICATING FLUID SLURRIES THAT WOULD HAVE SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER THERMAL CAPACITIES THANTHOSE CURRENTLY AVAILABLE AND WOULD HAVE POTENTIAL APPLICATION TO HIGH-SPEED MACHINING. SIGNIFICANT RESULTS HAVE BEEN ACHIEVED ON A NUMBER OF OTHER SBIR PROJECTS AT TRDC (FOR NASA AND DOD) THAT HAVE UTILIZED PRESSURIZED, CL ...

  8. STUDY OF SHOCK WAVE PROPAGATION AND PHASED-ARRAY FOCUSING FOR LITHOTRIPSY

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PHASE I EFFORT WILL APPLY THEORETICAL METHODS BASED PRINCIPALLY ON CAGNIARD'S FORMALISM (PREVIOUSLY INCORPORATED BY US INTO OUR POWERFUL SWREF CODE), TO THE PROPAGATION AND FOCUSING, IN BOTH REFLECTIVE AND PHASED-ARRAY EQUIPMENT, OF SHOCK-WAVES PRODUCED BY UNDERWATER SPARKS. THE OBJECTIVE IS TO INVESTIGATE AND PROVIDE DESIGN DATA FOR LITHOTRIPSY EQUIPMENT IN WHICH FOCUSED SHOCK WAVES ARE USED ...

  9. VARIABLE MODE SHAPE HIGH-FREQUENCY FORCE-BALANCE

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE SERVICEABILITY LIMIT STATE ASSOCIATED WITH OCCUPANT COMFORT UNDER WIND INDUCED LATERAL AND TORSIONAL MOTION IS BECOMING AN INCREASINGLY IMPORTANT CONSIDERATION IN THE DESIGN OF TALL BUILDINGS. IN SOME INSTANCES, STRUCTURAL MODIFICATIONS REQUIRED TO PRODUCE ACCEPTABLE PREDICTED RESPONSE CHARACTERISTICS CAN COST HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS OR EVEN MILLIONS OF DOLLARS. WITH THESE KINDS OF CO ...

  10. ACTIVELY CONTROLLED GAS BEARINGS

    SBC: Burton Technologies Inc            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT WILL BE CARRIED OUT TO PROVIDE PROTOTYPE, ACTIVELY CONTROLLED GAS BEARINGS FOR PRECISION MOVEMENT IN INSTRUMENTS AND MACHINE TOOLS. THIS WILL DRAW UPON PRELIMINARY WORK ON (1) FABRICATION, (2) DYNAMIC ANALYSIS OF THE BEARING AND SUPPORTED MASS, (3) PIEZOELECTRIC VALVING AND PIEZOELECTRIC DISPLACEMENT OF THE BEARING SURFACE, AND (4) THE ADAPTATION OF A MICROPROCESSOR TO SER ...
