  5. NEW TECHNOLOGY IN THE USE OF HIGH TEMPERATURE COATINGS AS A REFERENCE FOR ULTRA HIGH TEMPERATURE STRAIN MEASURMENTS

    SBC: Terra Tek Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT METHODS USED TO MEASURE STRAIN AT HIGH TEMPERATURES DEPEND ON UNDESIRABLE ATTACHMENTS, EXTENSIONS, OR INDENTATIONS OF THE TEST SAMPLES. THIS STUDY WILL INVESTIGATE THE USE OF NEW TECHNOLOGY TO APPLY HIGH TEMPERATURE COATING MARKS TO TEST SAMPLES. THESE APPLIED MARKS WILL ACT AS A REFERENCE OR GAUGE FOR OPTICAL STRAIN MEASUREMENT. MATERIALS INCLUDING REFRACTORY METALS AND CERAMICS WILL BE A ...

  6. ONE-MILLION POUND COMPRESSION REACTION LOADER AND COMPUTER CONTROL SYSTEM DESIGN

    SBC: Terra Tek Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A ONE-MILLION POUND COMPRESSION REACTION LOADER IS REQUIRED TO OPERATE IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE WATERWAYS EXPERIMENT STATION 6-KBAR TRIAXIAL TEST DEVICE. TERRA TEK HAS DESIGNED AND CONSTRUCTED SIMILAR TEST SYSTEMS FOR IN-HOUSE TESTING. TERRA TEK HAS ALSO DEVELOPED UNIQUE COMPUTER CONTROL CODES SPECIFICALLY FOR ROCK MECHANICS APPLICATIONS. THE PROPOSED PHASE I EFFORT IS TO DESIGN A COMPRESSION REACT ...

  7. FATIGUE LIFE PREDICTION BASED ON THREE-DIMENSIONAL STRESS ANALYSIS

    SBC: Terra Tek Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE NAVY IS DEVELOPING METHODS TO DETERMINE THE SIZE AND TYPE OF DEFECTS IN HELICOPTER GEARBOXES. WITH THIS KNOWLEDGE A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF THE FATIGUE-CRACK PROPAGATION CHARACTERISTICS OF THE GEARS AND BEARINGS WILL BE POSSIBLE AND ENHANCE THE ACCURACY IN PREDICTING THE FATIGUE LIFE. THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROPOSAL IS TO UNDERTAKE THIS STEP BY INVESTIGATING THE THREE-DIMENSIONAL STRESS DISTRIBUT ...

  8. DEVELOPMENT OF AN INNOVATIVE COST-EFFECTIVE SEALANT FOR CONCRETE AIRFIELD PAVEMENTS

    SBC: Terra Tek Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS AN EMPHATIC NEED FOR RESEARCH INTO DEVELOPMENT OF NEW COST-EFFECTIVE MATERIALS TO SEAL AND RESEAL CONCRETE AIRFIELD PAVEMENT JOINTS. PRESENT METHODS/MATERIALS EMPLOYED RESULT IN INADEQUATE SERVICE LIFE OF THE JOINTS BECAUSE OF MATERIAL DETERIORATION DUE TO 1) HIGH TEMPERATURE JET EXHAUST BLASTS, 2) LOADING/ENVIRONMENTALLY INDUCED STRESSES, AND 3) INADEQUATE FUEL/SOLVENT RESISTANCE. THESE ...

  9. X-RAY COMPUTERIZED TOMOGRAPHY APPLICATIONS TO CERAMAICS AND COMPOSITES

    SBC: Terra Tek Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL WILL EVALUATE THE USE OF X-RAY COMPUTERIZED TOMOGRAPHY (CT) AS A VIABLE TECHNIQUE TO QUANTITATIVELY MEASURE FIBER CONCENTRATION, ALIGNMENT AND DISTRIBUTION. THREE DIMENSIONAL PROFILING OF FIBERS WILL BE DEVELOPED. SECONDLY, INDICATIONS OF QUANTITATIVELY MEASURING IMPACT DAMAGE HAS BEEN ATTAINED. THIS PROJECT WILL, IN CONJUNCTION WITH ONGOING EFFORTS IN DESTRUCTIVE MAPPING OF IMPACT D ...

  10. LABORATORY STUDY OF EXTENSION FAILURE IN NEVADA TEST SITE TUFFS

    SBC: Terra Tek Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CALCULATED GROUND MOTION FROM NUCLEAR EXPLOSIONS PREDICT THAT AT LOCATIONS NEAR THE CAVITY THE ROCK FAILURE SURFACE WILL BE ENCOUNTERED IN EXTENSION DURING LATER STAGES OF UNLOAD. THE RESULTING HOOP FRACTURES WILL PRODUCE A FAILED ROCK ZONE SURROUNDING THE CAVITY. HIGH PRESSURE CAVITY GASES COULD INITIATE A HYDRAULIC FRACTURE THROUGH THE FRACTURE ROCK WHICH, UNDER THE WORST CONDITION, WOULD LEAD T ...
