  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  5. INTEGRATION OF CLOSE RANGE PROXIMITY AND TACTILE SENSING

    SBC: BONNEVILLE SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT WILL TAKE AN IMPORTANT STEP TOWARD THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN INTELLIGENT GENERAL PURPOSE ROBOTIC SYSTEMCAPABLE OF OBJECT LOCATION, IDENTIFICATION, AND MANIPULATIONTHROUGH THE JUDICIAL USE OF NON-VISUAL SENSING MODALITIES. CURRENTLY, ROBOTIC APPLICATIONS IN MANUFACTURING REQUIRE A HIGHLY STRUCTURED ENVIRONMENT SO THAT POSITION CONTROL OF THE ROBOT IS SATISFACTORY FOR THE TASK (E.G., PAINT ...

  6. STRENGTHENING OF STRUCTURAL CERAMICS BY DIFFERENTIAL CREEP

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: N/A

    A NOVEL METHOD FOR STRENGTHENING CERAMICS AND ALLOWING STRENGTH RETENTION TO HIGH TEMPERATURE IS PROPOSED. THE PHASE I RESEARCH WILL DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF INTRODUCING SUBSTANTIAL SURFACE COMPRESSIVE RESIDUAL STRESSES IN ALUMINA, SILICON CARBIDE, AND SILICON NITRIDE USING A DIFFERENTIAL CREEP MECHANISM. THE PHASE II RESEARCHWILL OPTIMIZE PARAMETERS FOR CONTROLLING THE MAGNITUDE AND STRESS DI ...

  7. CONTINUOUS MONITORING OF PPB LEVEL CATIONS AND ANIONS WITH SELECTIVE LIGAND-BONDED CONCENTRATOR COLUMNS

    SBC: IBC ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS A NEED FOR A DEVICE TO CONTINUOUSLY MONITOR CATIONSAND ANIONS IN THE PPB RANGE IN THE PRESENCE OF OTHER MORE CONCENTRATED MATRIX SPECIES. THIS NEED EXISTS IN RELATION TO SPECIES THAT ARE TOXIC, VALUABLE, OR OTHERWISE OF INTEREST. SUCH A DEVICE IS NEEDED IN MUNICIPAL WATER TREATMENT PLANTS, INDUSTRIAL PLANTS, AND OTHER PLACES WHERE THESE SPECIES SHOULD BE MONITORED WITH GREATER ACCURACY AN ...

  8. DEVELOPMENT OF A COMPACT, INEXPENSIVE X-RAY LASER DRIVER

    SBC: Multilayer Optics And X-ray            Topic: N/A

    THE PHYSICALLY LARGE DRIVERS CURRENTLY USED TO DEMONSTRATE AMPLIFIED SPONTANEOUS EMISSION (ASE) IN THE SOFT X-RAY REGION MAKE THEIR USE AS LABORATORY X-RAY LASERS IMPRACTICAL. A CAPILLARY DISCHARGE OR SLIDING SPARK DEVICE PROVIDES AN ALTERNATE WAY TO ACHIEVE THE PLASMA CONDITIONS NECESSARY FOR SOFT X-RAY ASE IN ELEMENTS SUCH AS ARGON AND KRYPTON. CAPILLARY DISCHARGES RESULT IN REPRODUCIBLE, STABLE ...

  10. SELECTION OF OPTIMUM WASTE TREATMENT OPERATIONS FOR THE POLAR ENVIRONMENT

    SBC: Technical research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    POLAR EXPLORATION AND STUDY OF THE POLAR WORLD HAVE BROUGHT ABOUT THE NECESSITY FOR HOUSING ENGINEERS AND SCIENTISTS WHO PRODUCE LIQUID AND SOLID WASTES THAT MUST BE DISPOSED OFIN WHAT CONSTITUTES A HOSTILE ENVIRONMENT. THIS STUDY DEALSWITH SELECTING WASTE WATER TECHNIQUES WHICH WHEN OPERATING EFFICIENTLY, WILL LEAST PERTURBATE THE NATURAL POLAR MICROBIOLOGICAL AND CHEMICAL ENVIRONMENT. THE OBJECT ...
