  1. Long Term Behavior, Failure Analysis & In-Service Testing of Composite Cylinders

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: 101PH1

    TRI proposes to develop reliable methodology and protocols for in-service inspection,recertifying and retiring DOT COPVs to maximize service life while ensuring personnel safety. This method must be sufficiently robust to prevent in-service failures, while being straightforward and affordable enough to be conducted at cylinder recertification facilities. To accomplish this with a high degree of co ...

  2. Development of a non-destructive, quantitative residual stress assessment tool

    SBC: Generation 2 Materials Technology Llc            Topic: 111PH2

    A nondestructive tool will be developed to quatitatively assess residual stress in pipelines from the exterior and through coatings. Residual stress is a critical factor that determines the cracking susceptibility of pipeline steels, but existing methods for measuring mechanical damage in pipeline steels are incapable of quantifying the residual stress levels. A larger gouge or dent does not nec ...

  6. Improved Heterogeneous Catalyst for the Transesterification of Fats and Oils to Biodiesel

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: 88

    World oil reserves are concentrated in just a few countries, primarily in the Middle East which holds nearly two-thirds of the world's oil reserves. With a rising demand in industrialized nations and an even faster increasing demand from developing countries (e.g. India, China, etc.), the pressure on these oil reserves increases and could serve as a basis for future conflicts between nations ...
