Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2011
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project proposes to combine the latest technologies in processing of lightweight materials using ultrasonic vibration(USV), in mold cooling, and in continuous casting, and to develop an enabling USV & #8208;GRTM technology for producing metal ingots of ultrafine grains without the use of fo...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: M2-2010
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to advance the cast-on technology for the metal casting industry to produce lightweight metal composite castings. Cast-on method is a cost effective method for the reinforcement of casting with dissimilar metals but suffers from defect formation such as de-bond, oxidation, and p...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project entitled ""USV-Grain Refining"" aims at advancing the grain refining technologies for the production of aluminum or magnesium alloy ingots or castings. Grain refining is usually one of the first processing steps for the production of metal and alloy products. The conventional methods use c...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Purdue University

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2008
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

The Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase I project will develop a reliable and effective processing technique to produce a next-generation metal matrix composite comprised of aluminum oxide or silicon carbide nanoparticles dispersed in an aluminum alloy metal matrix. The proposed technology combines the merits of the traditio...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2007
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07

The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will utlize ultrasonic vibrations during pouring of molten metal around a reinforcement insert placed in a mold and during solidification of the composite casting. The proposed processing route will help develop a defect-free metallurgical bond between two dissimilar metals. The pro...
