Abstract:Space travel is fraught with ever changing emergencies and accidents that place human life and expensive one-of-a-kind autonomous systems at risk. Hypothetical collisions with space debris, human and computer errors are just a few examples of such risk. In this effort, we propose space based… more
Abstract:"We propose two key enhancements to the SAAS-MOD system that encompasses the major Phase I objectives. The first enhancement to SAAS-MOD proposed is the optimization of the UCL for maximally efficient collection of those items at the ASP. The added valueofthis optimization will be a physical"… more
Abstract:"In future advanced military diesel engine propulsion systems, the engine's tribological considerations have been limited by the temperature capability of the lubricating fluid. Thermal oxidation resulting in lubricant breakdown and formation of films anddeposits are typical causes of engine… more
Abstract:"A small engine concept is being proposed for a 0.25 cid two-stroke commercially available engine that will allow the elimination of volatile fuel additives and lubricating oil. The concept will lead to fuel consumption improvements and increases in powerdensity in heavy-fueled small bore… more
Abstract:"This proposal comprises research efforts to study a dynamic non-stationary friction regime with a variable range of external factors or parameters. This research method considers the development of special non-linear mathematical models for enginetribology including the lubricating oil film… more
Abstract:"The aim of our Phase II activity is to incorporate the Cohesive Volumetric Plate and Shell (Finite) Elements into LS-DYNA3D, thus enhancing its capabilities in modeling HRAM loading and damage in composite structures. In Phase I, we reported oninterlaminar failure criteria and modes, based on… more

Abstract:"The objective of this project is to develop and validate a 2nd generation crack-growth prediction methodology for cold-worked fastener holes. The methodology will be based on a three-dimensional weight function, and will handle cracks growing from theedge of the hole, as well as cracks initiating… more
Abstract:70753 Energy production and combustion of fossil fuels are sources of organic aerosols that have been linked to environmental degradation, human health problems, and changes in the radiative transfer properties of earth¿s atmosphere. New techniques are needed for the time-resolved in-situ… more
Abstract:70589 Time-resolved, quantitative measurements of particulate organic compounds, which contribute to atmospheric pollution, are needed to identify their direct and precursor sources. Carboxcylic acids are an important component of the organic fraction. This project will develop an automated… more

Abstract:Conventional fluorescence-activated cell sorters (FACSs) are widely used to study eukaryotic cell populations. Although they provide impressively efficient sorting, they are costly, mechanically complex, and require large sample volumes and trained personnel for operation and maintenance. In… more
There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
