The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Algorithms for Health Care Quality Management and Outcomes Assessment

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    American health care is in the midst of momentous change. Quality improvement principles are being used increasingly to enhance productivity and efficiency of health care delivery and to help contain costs. In producing patient outcomes and resource utilization measures, it is vital to control appropriately for case mix (i.e., differences in patients due, e.g., to illness severity) in the predicti ...

  2. Optical Fiber Devices for Composite Process Monitoring

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    The primary objective of the Phase 1 program was the development of optical fiber devices and cost-effective signal conditioning systems to produce commercially available composite process monitoring systems. The tasks successfully completed during the Phase 1 effort are as follows: (1) examined the performance requirements of the optical fiber devices and demodulation systems for FT-IR- and fluor ...

  3. Analysis Software for Near-Field Optical Microscopes

    SBC: Field Precision            Topic: N/A

    The near-field scanning optical microscope can supply information on the shape and electrical properties of surfaces with nanometer resolution. The quantitative interpretation of images is difficult because of the difficulty of electromagnetic field solutions in the near-field limit. We propose to supply software to aid in this analysis. The finite-element programs generate two and three-dimension ...

  4. New Methods for Evaluating Thermal Performance of Protective Clothing for

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A growing number of fire fighters are suffering third degree burns; this has led to questions about the adequacy of thermal protective performance (TPP) measurements for protective clothing. A new heat flux sensor, whose response approximates that of skin, will be developed to provide better measurements of heat transfer in TPP tests. This sensor will be used with nonlinear parameter estimation an ...

  5. Characterization of Consolidation of Non-Spherical Powders

    SBC: Matsys Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    We propose to characterize the early stage of consolidation of non-spherical powders to further the development of process models to enable simulation of powder metallurgy manufacturing for the consumer market, especially the automotive industry. Typically, spherical powders with a narrow size distribution are used for aerospace applications, while low-cost powders with irregular shapes and a wide ...

  6. High-Temperature Thermal Conductivity Measurements of Ceramic Powders

    SBC: MetSys Corporation            Topic: N/A

    It is proposed to develop an advanced field apparatus for measuring the thermal conductivity of ceramic powders over the range of temperatures from room temperature to 1500 to 2500 K, depending upon the particular material and its compatibility with other materials. The apparatus will have the capability to carry out fully automated thermal conductivity measurements, by transient or steady-state m ...
