Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): For such life-changing impact that bariatric surgery represents for obesity, this popular procedure is noted for its poor post- operative follow-up rates and outcomes tracking. Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass (LGB) has emer
ged as one of the most popular surgical… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Vitamin D plays a critical role in calcium metabolism and bone health in children and adults. It is now recognized that every tissue and cell in the body have a vitamin D receptor and thus every tissue and cell in the b
ody is a target for vitamin D action.… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The present lack of blood-based diagnosis requires AD patients to be subjected to either invasive spinal fluid (CSF) tapping, expensive MRI or PET imaging, or arduous psychological testing, all unsuitable and costly for
our elderly. Strategically, we shall… more

Abstract:This SBIR project aims at the development of an innovative technology that can be attached to existing submerged arc welding (SAW) systems to monitor and feedback control the depth of weld penetration. Existing SAW systems will be operated using existing welding procedures without modifications. In… more
Abstract:The aluminum alloys have low density, relatively high strength, and high strength-to-weight ratio, which brings some major advantages in marine structure design, fabrication, and operations. However, marine ships are subjected to a complex and severe loading, and the typical failure mode of aluminum… more
Abstract:Research is proposed for the development and implementation of state of the art computational and experimental tools for the investigation of the impact of control surface freeplay on the flutter and limit cycle oscillation characteristics of two-dimensional and three-dimensional wings in subsonic… more
Abstract:This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project is aiming at developing and implementing a multiscale composite model to predict the ceramic matrix composite (CMC) response to the impact loading by foreign objects. In particular, the physics-based model will be applied to describe the… more
Abstract:Turbine disks are amongst the most critical components in aero- and naval-vessel engines. They operate in a high pressure and temperature environment requiring demanding properties. Nickel-based supperalloys which have high creep and oxidation resistance at high temperatures are widely used as the… more
Abstract:Research is proposed for the development and implementation of state of the art, reduced order models for problems in

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.
