  1. Enhanced Strength Aerospace Carbon Foam Heat Exchanger

    SBC: TOUCHSTONE RESEARCH LABORATORY LTD (INC)            Topic: N/A

    Touchstone Research Laboratory and its partners propose to investigate the utilization of lightweight and efficient carbon foam for heat exchangers in aircraft. In general, carbon foams have the potential to be a revolutionary material in aerospace due totheir light weight and thermal management capabilities. CFOAMr should meet the cost criteria since it is produced from bituminous coal and is mu ...

  2. A Hydrostatic Processing Facility for Superconducting Wire

    SBC: Alabama Cryogenic Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    72984S03-I Currently available methods impose limits on the processing of multi-filamentary, superconducting wires used in high energy physics experiments. These limits can be severe when one of the wire components has a mechanical strength substantially smaller than the other component(s), and can eliminate many desirable wire designs from consideration. Niobium-Tin and Niobium-Aluminum are e ...

  3. Acoustically-Enhanced Extractive Fermentation for Biomass Utilization

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    72428S03-I Combining the unit operations of solvent extraction and fermentation would substantially lower the capital cost and operating expense of converting biomass to usable products. However, attempts to develop these extractive fermentations have suffered from oxygen and mass transfer limitations and long coalescing times. This project will apply novel acoustic agitation technology in the ...

  4. Sonically-Enhanced Microbubble Flotation Column

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    72427S03-I Industry discards approximately one-tenth of mined coal. Also, nearly one-third of the phosphates mined in Florida, one-fifth of the tungsten mined in the world, and one-half of the tin mined in Bolivia are discarded as unrecoverable fine material. Large amounts of energy are invested in grinding these minerals, much of which is lost as uneconomical mining byproducts that are eventua ...

  5. Nanostructured Tungsten for Improved Plasma Facing Component Performance

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: N/A

    70508B02-II To reduce the cost of burning-plasma experiments conducted for fusion energy research, refractory metals are required to increase high heat flux limitations for plasma facing component applications. For refractory metals such as tungsten (W) to be used in fusion applications, improvements in both mechanical and physical properties are needed. Because recent work identified the be ...

  6. Low NOx Commerical Burner

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: N/A

    70848T02-II Fuel oil is an important part of the energy supply mix for commercial and large residential buildings, but the development of low emission, high performance burners has received little attention. Recent advances in recirculating burner development with low pressure air atomization provide an opportunity to introduce such improved systems to the market. This project will develop a ...

  8. A Down-Hole Probe for Real-Time Ore Grade Assessment in "Look Ahead" Mining

    SBC: Resonon, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    73147B03-I The removal, sorting, disposal, and treatment of waste rock in mining operations are expensive processes, wasteful of energy, hazardous, and environmentally damaging. The best possible remedy is to avoid creating the waste rock in the first place. This can be accomplished with existing mining techniques if ¿look-ahead¿ ore grading were used to evaluate unmined rock in real time ...

  9. Keyhole Squeeze-Off Tool to Enable Repair of Large (4" and 6") Polyethylene Gas Pipes

    SBC: Timberwolf Corporation            Topic: N/A

    70281S02-II There is a critical need for safe, reliable and cost effective repair of aging and expanding natural gas transmission and distribution polyethylene (PE) pipelines in the United States. The industry is moving to ¿keyhole¿ access to repair these pipelines because of safety, reliability, and cost benefits. The critical first step in gas line maintenance and repair is to stop t ...
