  • Adjustable Joist Hanging/Spacer Tool | TechLink
    and precisely position and mount joist hangers for various joist sizes The Technology The Naval Undersea Warfare Center Division Newport has developed and prototyped a patent pending tool for the fast and accurate installation of joist hangers The Adjustable Joist Hanging Spacer Tool holds the joist hanger in the proper position and squeezes it to the appropriate width making it easy for an individual to rapidly secure these otherwise cumbersome pieces of hardware with nails or screws The device is fully adjustable to accommodate different joist sizes 2x4 2x6 etc operate either right or left handed and could be modified to adjust to different joist spacings The tool maintains proper spacing without the risk of the hanger slipping out of preferred horizontal position and includes a level to maintain proper vertical orientation Benefits Simple One Person Operation One person can easily mount joist hangers avoiding what is typically an awkward three handed job Fast Accurate Holds joist hangers firmly in place and at the desired spacing to ensure consistent installation includes a level for additional precision Adjustable The tool can be adjusted to fit various joist sizes 2x4 2x6 etc and spacings The Opportunity A pending US patent is available

  • All-Terrain Wheel Chair | TechLink
    applied for a patent on an innovative design for a wheel chair that can more easily navigate on soft and uneven outdoor terrain such as grass and gravel The chair uses three wheels Two wheels in the front approximately the same size as the rear wheels on a traditional four wheeled chair and a third wheel in the back that is roughly two thirds as tall as the front wheels The relatively large size of all three wheels makes it easier to maneuver over a variety of surfaces and the back wheel can pivot 360 degrees for easy turning The design is very stable and the overall chair is occupies a footprint only slightly larger than traditional designs In addition to enhanced performance outdoors the chair is also ideal for situations where the occupant of the chair is larger than the person pushing the chair Additional features include bicycle style brakes and a wheel ratchet design that can be activated to prevent the chair from rolling backwards Benefits Simple Chair is easy to maintain and light weight because it does not require electronics or complex machinery Effective Existing three wheel designs utilize a small rear wheel that provides stability and

  • Zinc-Coated Lead (The Use of Zinc-Plated Lead Wire to Create Bullets and Other Forms) | TechLink
    These patents are available for licensing and commercialization Lead leaching into soil and water creates an environmental hazard that is costly to clean up One study recently documented a presently unmitigated human health exposure Lead weights used to balance motor vehicle wheels are lost and deposited in urban streets where they are rapidly ground into tiny pieces by the traffic One study estimates that 3 3 million pounds of lead is annually deposited on U S urban roads only to be scattered into the wind as dust washed into storm sewers and waterways and picked up by shoes animal paws and bicycle tires Sporting and military ammunition have relied significantly on the use of lead despite the threats to public health Lead shot presents a costly clean up problem for sport shooting ranges and is banned for hunting purposes in many regions Even lead usage in an essential product like radiation shielding has raised concerns as a result of corrosion and disposal issues Industry continues to seek environmentally sound alternatives to lead without compromising critical performance and cost factors Image Right The Technology Instead of fully replacing lead the patented solution is to provide a structural means to inhibit the mobility of lead when exposed to corrosive conditions The solution proposed by ERDC is to form lead objects from compressed zinc plated lead wires Pieces of fine lead wire are electroplated with zinc or zinc alloys The coated wires are placed in a die and are fully compressed into a solid shape yielding a final product that has zinc distributed throughout When exposed to outdoor elements the inherent electrolytic protection of the zinc further encapsulates any lead exposed in a bullet fragment Early stage testing has demonstrated attainment of EPA environmental impact standards while retaining the performance characteristic of lead

  • Adjustable Depth Air Sparging (ADAS) System | TechLink
    the contaminants from a liquid phase to a vapor phase and transports the volatile compounds via air channels to the unsaturated zone The extent of air within the remedial zone of an air sparging site affects the level of contact with the target contaminants leading to a site s successful cleanup Present systems use discrete depth air sparge wells to inject into the subsurface The level of air distribution is increased by using a composite set of wells to vary the air injection depth Attempts to mechanically adjust air sparge wells with specialized equipment have met with only limited success The Opportunity ADAS is a sparging system that allows the user to precisely and repeatedly adjust the depth of air injection without the expense of having to install new air sparge wells The ADAS system employs an inflatable flow through packer a device that slides annularly through the same type of directly driven well as used for conventional air sparge systems The flow through packer is designed to seal off the interior of the air sparge well so that injection air flowing out from the bottom of the packer does not travel back up the interior of the well The system allows an operator to easily raise and lower the packer without the need for specialized equipment The ADAS system has been enhanced to include dual point air injection a process that improves air distribution by increasing air channel formation throughout the remedial zone A modified ADAS system can facilitate in situ chemical oxidation ISCO by injecting air mixed with a chemical oxidizer into the soil subsurface or by using air as a propellant to push oxidizers further into the subsurface The ADAS flow through packer is set at any injection depth advantageous to oxidizer action The oxidizer is injected
