Abstract:AGRICULTURAL ENGINEERS AND SCIENTISTS HAVE EXPRESSED A NEED FOR A TRULY PORTABLE FLOW MEASUREMENT SYSTEM THAT RELIES ON SIMPLE PHYSICAL PRINCIPLES. THE SYSTEM SHOULD INCLUDE INEXPENSIVE AND RELIABLE SENSORS CAPABLE OF INTERFACING WITH ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT. THIS RESEARCH WILL INVESTIGATE THE… more
Abstract:As cancer treatments improve, the view that the illness is "chronic" rather than "terminal" isbecoming widespread. Under this new paradigm, caregivers have an increasing obligation to helppatients and their families learn how to live with the illness. While attention is given to "quality of life"as… more
Abstract:Many military installations and Department of Defense (DoD) contractors are subject to recently promulgated regulations that require storm water flow metering and collection of both grab samples (in response to a rainfall event of a specified intensity) and flow-weighted composite samples. Such… more
Abstract:REMOVAL OF TOXIC METALS FROM WASTEWATER STREAMS HAS BECOME A PROBLEM OF INCREASING NATIONAL IMPORTANCE, AS A RESULT OF INCREASING CONCERN FOR OUR ENVIRONMENT, AND INCREASINGLY STRINGENT WASTE DISPOSAL REGULATIONS. CHROMATOCHEM, INC., HAS DEVELOPED AN ECONOMICAL AND EFFECTIVE NEW TECHNOLOGY FOR THE… more
Abstract:1Certain microorganisms are capable of degrading polyurethane coatings. This feat is accomplished by enzymes normally produced by these microorganisms. But microbial paint stripping, an environmentally compatible alternative to chemical and physical paint stripping, is unacceptably slow. The rate of… more
Abstract:ALTHOUGH INDIVIDUAL COMPONENTS DERIVED FROM OATS (AVENA SATIVA) HAVE BEEN FOUND TO POSSESS NOVEL PROPERTIES, THESE HAVE NOT BEEN EXPLOITED COMMERCIALLY TO ANY GREAT EXTENT, THE BIGGEST OBSTACLE BEING A LACK OF MARKETS FOR BY-PRODUCTS. APPLICATIONS FOR PROTEINACEOUS FRACTIONS OF OATS HAVE BEEN… more
Abstract:THERE IS GREAT NEED FOR A FAST-KILLING, PERSISTENT AGENT TO PROTECT HIGH VALUE CROPS FROM GRASSHOPPERS. BECAUSE GRASSHOPPERS MIGRATE AND MODERN CHEMICALS DO NOT PERSIST, EXPENSIVE, REPEATED TREATMENTS ARE NECESSARY. NOSEMA LOCUSTAE (NL), THE ONLY AVAILABLE PERSISTENT AGENT, ACTS TOO SLOWLY,… more
Abstract:IMPROVED TECHNOLOGY IS NEEDED TO PROVIDE RAPID, INEXPENSIVE, ON-SITE TREATMENT AND CLEANUP OF SOILS CONTAMINATED BY PETROLEUM HYDROCARBONS AND SOLVENTS. TREATED SOILS SHOULD BE SUITABLE FOR REPLACEMENT IN THEIR OWN EXCAVATION, AND THE TREATMENT PROCESS SHOULD NOT GENERATE ANY SECONDARY WASTES. IN… more
Abstract:BASIC BIO SYSTEMS, INC., PROPOSES TO INVESTIGATE A NOVEL APPROACH TO OIL SPILL CLEANUP UTILIZING A NATURAL, OAT-DERIVED DISPERSANT. PROTEINACEOUS OAT FRACTIONS DEVELOPED BY BASIC BIO SYSTEMS, INC. HAVE THE ABILITY TO ABSORB SEVERAL TIMES THEIR WEIGHT OF A WIDE RANGE OF COMPOUNDS, INCLUDING… more
Abstract:THE METHODS TO BE EMPLOYED IN THIS PARTICIPATORY EXPERIMENT SEEK TO UTILIZE VISUAL AND DEMONSTRATION METHODS IN TEACHINGNEW CRAFTS AND BUSINESS SKILLS TO WOMEN WITH MULTIPLE BARRIERS, (E.G. ENGLISH LANGUAGE DEFICIENCIES; LOW SELF-ESTEEM; LACK OF PERSONAL PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS) IN ORDER TO OVERCOME… more
Abstract:THE ABANDONED BERKELEY PIT COPPER MINE SITE IN BUTTE, MONTANA, IS A MAJOR COMPONENT OF THE BUTTE SILVERBOW CREEK SUPERFUND SITE. IT CONSISTS OF SEVERAL BILLION GALLONS OF ACID (PH 2-3) MINE DRAINAGE THAT IS CONTAMINATED WITH TOXIC LEVELS OF A VARIETY OF HEAVY METALS, ARSENIC, AND SULFURIC ACID. THE… more
Abstract:WATER AND WASTEWATER PIPELINES COMPRISE A SIGNIFICANT PORTION OF THE NATION'S INVESTMENT IN INFRASTRUCTURE. ONLY ONE TECHNOLOGY IS AVAILABLE FOR INSITU REHABILITATION OF THESE PIPELINES WITHOUT EXTENSIVE EXCAVATION--BUT IT IS EXPENSIVE AND RELIES ON A RIGID THERMOSET PLASTIC LINING THAT IS SUBJECT… 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.
