  1. Wireless EMG and Improved Mounting System

    SBC: MOTION CONTROL, INC            Topic: N/A

    The project focuses on the development of a small, water-proof elecromyographic (EMG) sensor for a myoelectric arm prosthesis that transmits by a wireless link and can be easily and consistently installed over any muscle site. The wireless link eliminates wires and connectors inside the arm socket that can be bulky and unreliable due to corrosion and breakage of wires representing a significant i ...

  4. SBIR Phase II: Multi-Environment Probability Density Function (PDF) Method for Modeling Turbulent Combustion Using Detailed Chemistry

    SBC: Reaction Engineering International            Topic: IT

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will extend the applicability of the multi-environment probability density function (MEPDF) method to model turbulent combustion problems with realistic chemical kinetics within comprehensive Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) simulations of practical combustion equipment. The project aims to further advance the MEPDF method by extendi ...

  5. SBIR Phase II: T-Splines for Surface Intersection

    SBC: T-Spline Company            Topic: IT

    This SBIR Phase II project addresses what is considered to be a significant unsolved problem in the Computer-Aided Design (CAD) industry; the fact that many CAD models contain numerous small, unwanted holes or gaps. These gaps occur most often along the seams where two surfaces in a CAD model meet, such as where a wing meets the fuselage of an airplane, and result from fundamental mathematical lim ...

  6. High Volume Utilization of Fly Ash Containing Mercury-Impregnated Activated Carbon

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: 11

    In March of 2005, the EPA published final regulations to control mercury emissions from coal-fired electric utilities. The most mature retrofit technology available for mercury collection is the injection of a sorbent such as powdered activated carbon. Unfortunately, carbon injection technology is accompanied by high concentrations of mercury in the fly ash, (an important by-product that is used ...

  7. Proton Conducting Solid Oxide Fuel Cells

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: 18

    The use of a proton-conducting electrolyte in a solid oxide fuel cell offers the opportunity for very high efficiency operation compared to an oxygen-ion-conducting electrolyte. However, the poor stability of the proton-conducting material, within a typcial fuel gas composition, has hampered the development of this technology. This project will develop a compositional and surface modification te ...

  8. Novel Oxide Ceramic Matrix Composites for Gas Turbine Applications

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: 28

    The use of Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs) as hot-section components in gas turbines and engines could significantly increase the operating temperature, resulting in enhanced energy efficiency and reduced emission of harmful gases. CMCs offer high temperature capability compared to superalloys and improved reliability compared to monolithic ceramics. However, current non-oxide CMCs, such as SiC ...

  9. Pilot Plant Design- Integrated Coal Gasification/Shale Oil Recovery

    SBC: Combustion Resources            Topic: 16

    U.S. and world supplies of petroleum are limited, causing substantial increases and fluctuations in the cost of liquid transportation fuels. The U.S. has vast untapped oil shale reserves (an estimated recoverable 1.15 trillion bbl) in UT, CO, and WY, which could help alleviate the problem if the oil from shale could be economically recovered in an environmentally acceptable way. This project wil ...

  10. A High Temperature (400 to 650oC) Secondary Storage Battery Based on Liquid Sodium and Potassium Anodes

    SBC: Materials and Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: 15

    This project will develop technolgy for integrating a high-temperature (400 to 700ºC), high-efficiency (greater than 90%) secondary battery with a 3 to 10 kW solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) system. The battery will be based on an alkali-metal-ion-conducting, highly refractory, beta alumina solid electrolyte (BASE) and a non corrosive metal salt. The battery is expected not only to meet or exceed w ...
