  1. WHISKER MATRIX INTERFACE IN CERAMIC-CERAMIC COMPOSITES

    SBC: Flow Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED WORK WILL EVALUATE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING PROCESSING SCIENCE TO TAILOR THE COMPOSITION AND INTERFACE BONDING OF WHISKER-REINFORCED CERAMIC COMPOSITES. MICROSTRUCTURAL CONTROL WILL BE EVALUATED BY VARYING GEL STRUCTURES (COLLOIDAL VERSUS POLYMERIC) AND SINTERING (LIQUID STATE VERSUS SOLID STATE) CONDITIONS. THE MULLITE-MULLITE AND MULLITE-ALUMINA COMPOSITES WERE SELECTED FOR THE STUD ...

  2. THE DIRECT PRODUCTION OF INTERMETALLIC COM- POUND POWDER

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    THE PRESENT PROCESS OF PRODUCING INTERMETALLIC ALLOY POWDER BY MELTING, CASTING, AND A POWDER ATOMIZA- TION STEP IS EXPENSIVE AND TECHNICALLY LACKING, THUS LIMITING THE ULTIMATE MECHANICAL AND PHYSICAL PRO- PERTIES OF THE INTERMETALLIC MATERIAL. THIS PROJECT EX- AMINES THE FEASIBILITY OF PRODUCING NICKEL AND TITA- NIUM ALUMINIDE INTERMETALLIC ALLOY POWDER BY THE DIRECT REDUCTION OF METAL CHLORIDE ...

  3. ENORMOUS AMOUNTS OF LIGNOCELLULOSE ARE WASTED BUT THE ECONOMY OF PREPARING IT FOR INDUSTRIAL USE HAS HITHERTO PREVENTED DEVELOPMENT.

    SBC: Mycotech Corporation            Topic: N/A

    ENORMOUS AMOUNTS OF LIGNOCELLULOSE ARE WASTED BUT THE ECONOMY OF PREPARING IT FOR INDUSTRIAL USE HAS HITHERTO PREVENTED DEVELOPMENT. CHEMICAL AND MECHANICAL LIGNINOLYTICMETHODS TEND TO BE ENERGY INTENSIVE AND/OR ARE ECOLOGICALLY UNDESIRABLE. MANY LIGNIN DEGRADING WHITE ROT BASIDIOMYCETESARE KNOWN, BUT PRODUCTION ON A LARGE SCALE HAS BEEN HAMPEREDBY SOME UNUSUAL OXYGEN REQUIREMENTS AND A SLOW REACT ...

  4. SYNTHETIC PULSE METHODS FOR ULTRASONIC NONDESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION (NDE)

    SBC: Sigma Research Corp            Topic: N/A

    LARGE-GRAIN MATERIALS ARE DIFFICULT TO INSPECT WITH CONVENTIONAL ULTRASONIC NONDESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION (NDE) METHODS. THIS IS PARTICULARLY TRUE OF THE CEN- TRIFUGALLY CAST STAINLESS STEEL USED FOR COOLANT PIPING IN PRESSURIZED WATER REACTORS (PWR). REDUCED TEST FREQUENCIES MUST BE USED TO PENETRATE THE MATERIAL. HOWEVER, A CORRESPONDING DECREASE IN NEAR-SURFACE RESOLUTION IS INCURRED RESULTING IN A ...

  6. DEVELOPMENT OF A DIODE LASER DOPPLER VELOCIMETER WITH DIRECTIONAL SENSING CAPABILITIES-

    SBC: Waterjet Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    RECENT DEVELOPMENT OF THE DIODE LASER DOPPLER VELO- CIMETER (DLDV) HAS REVOLUTIONIZED THE USES OF LASER VELOCIMETRY. THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SECOND-GENERATION DLDV THAT HAS DIRECTIONAL SENSING CAPABILITIES AND CAN OPERATE IN A BACKSCATTER MODE IS PLANNED. SUCCESSFUL INCORPORATION OF THESE TWO FEATURES WILL ENHANCE THE THE VERSATILITY, COMPACTNESS, AND OPERATIONAL SIMPLICITY OF THE PROVEN DLDV FOR DEP ...
