Abstract:ABSTRACT: Electrolytic Hard Chrome (ECH) is the standard coating method for 4XXX steels used in actuators and depot-based repair of damaged items. The properties of EHC coatings are excellent, and as a result EHC coatings have been used for more than 50 years. Unfortunately, EHC plating uses… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The development of weapons that can travel at hypersonic speeds is becoming a high priority to the US Air Force. A key technology needed for the continued development of these propulsion systems is the ability to cool the combustor by flowing fuel through channels machined in the walls. … more
Abstract:Climate variability and the increased frequency of climate-related risks are redefining how communities address urban development and planning, Better storm risk assessment will lead directly to better preparedness which will save lives, reduce costs, and increase resiliency. Riverside proposes a… more
Abstract:Aircraft equipped with On-Board Oxygen Generating Systems (OBOGS) selectively filter nitrogen and other gaseous contaminants in air from the aircraft's engine to provide the aircrew with an oxygen enriched breathing gas. Under suboptimal operating conditions, toxic byproducts can breach the… more
Abstract:Advancements are needed to improve and optimize the performance of existing and future nuclear power plants and nuclear power systems by developing and improving the reliability of advanced instrumentation. A need has been identified for an improved control rod position sensor for fault free… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: A significant challenge in developing aerospace engine and vehicle sensor systems is reliability. The issues involve multiple considerations, including the use environment, materials, architecture, redundancy, and communication. The fielded reliability of state-of-the-art (SOA) sensor… more
Abstract:Sporian proposes to develop a wireless sensor suite for rotorcraft Generator Control Unit (GCU) and Main Power Relay (MPR) health monitoring.

In particular, this project will provide a higher quality substitution for commonly used… more
Abstract:This project targets the development of commercially viable Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) process for the manufacturing of high voltage metal-insulator-metal (MIM) capacitors for gallium nitride (GaN) Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuits (MMICs) applications. In particular, the objective of this… more
Abstract:The Department of Energy has spent millions of dollars on the development of numerical software libraries whose use in commercial settings has been limited. However, the cutting edge capabilities offered by these packages could have a substantial commercial impact and value. One of the main… more
Abstract:Satellite electronics design requires the ability to compute the radiation dose on circuits inside a mechanical object to know whether they will survive long enough to complete their mission. Similarly, in radiation therapy there is a need to compute the radiation deposited in objects outside the… more
Abstract:Highly anisotropic magnetic materials, such as grain-oriented steel, have been shown to significantly increase the allowable peak fields in rapidly pulsed magnets, such as the magnets needed for the currently proposed rapid cycling syncrotron for muon acceleration. Detailed, cost-effective design of… more
Abstract:Plasma sheaths near metallic and dielectric surfaces in the presence of oscillating electric fields impart physics effects of critical significance for fusion experiments and industrial plasma processing applications. In magnetic fusion research, thin sheaths form near radiofrequency (RF) antenna… more
Abstract:Robust H ion sources are a key component for the Spallation Neutron Source at ORNL. Antennas used to produce H ions often fail when plasma heats the protective insulating coating on the antennas, exposing the bare metal and causing structural failure. Reducing antenna failures, which are… 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.
