A mechanical resonant system includes a voice coil actuator, a payload mass (110A,110B), a driver mass (120A,120B,120C) and a frame mass (130A,130B,130C). The voice coil actuator includes a bobbin (160), an electrical conductor (170) and a magnet assembly (180,190). The bobbin is made from a material that is electrically nonconductive. The electrical conductor is coupled to the bobbin. The magnet assembly has a housing (180) and a magnet (190) coupled to the housing. At least a portion of the bobbin (160) and at least a portion of the electrical conductor (170) are configured to be positioned within a gap formed by the magnet (190) and the housing (180). The bobbin and the magnet assembly are configured to oscillate when an alternating current is applied to the electrical conductor. The payload mass (110A,110B) is coupled to one of the bobbin and the housing. The driver mass (120A,120B,120C) is coupled to the other of the bobbin and the housing. The frame mass (130A,130B,130C) is coupled to each of the payload mass and the driver mass. The payload mass, the driver mass, and the frame mass are each independently moveable with respect to one another.

A method for protecting a boat hull is provided. A first polymer thermal spray coating is applied to a surface of a boat hull and to a rigid member. The rigid member is placed at a desired location on the surface of the boat hull. The rigid member is heated such that the first polymer thermal spray coating adhesively bonds the rigid member to the surface of the boat hull.

Resodyn Corporation proposes to develop a novel cold chain system with a Lifetime Warranty (20+ years) for the vacuum container. The container is composed of a passive energy efficient system for transporting blood and pharmaceuticals in hostile environments for up to three days. Capacity is four unit blood transfusion bags. Energy efficiency is possible by the novel shape and super insulating qualities proposed. The proposed Phase II work extends positive outcomes from a Phase I investigation. At the end of Phase II, six systems will be delivered. Systems include the cold chain container system, temperature monitoring options, and research work on vacuum insulated panel reliability for shelf life extension (SLEP) programs.

Many of the currently available options for food safety testing are expensive, slow, or limited in the range of threats that can be detected. Sending samples back to testing facilities in the United States is too slow and cumbersome to effectively respond to immediate food safety issues. SPR technology has been well-developed as a tool for molecular analysis, so it is relatively mature in terms of detection methods, chemistry and protocols. However, up until now, SPR devices have been primarily limited to large, expensive, benchtop units that require considerable expertise for operation of the devices. What is needed is the development of inexpensive, field-portable SPR devices that are extremely easy to operate in the field. Additionally, the use of a disposable fluidics card format would greatly enhance ease-of-use and device contamination concerns. Resodyn Corporation has made significant progress in developing SPR biosensors, and proposes to develop a field-portable SPR biosensor as a food safety monitoring device. This sensor would be able to detect the presence of multiple pathogens and/or toxins simultaneously at levels relevant to preventing food-borne illness. In addition to determining the presence of pathogens, specific methods are proposed to assess the viability of the pathogens as well.

ABSTRACT: Resodyn Corporation proposes to develop a portable, cost effective, near-surface residual stress measuring tools based on electromagnetic principles. Resodyn Corporation has patented technology developed for validating cold expanded button head rivet holes.The first application in Phase I is to apply this technology to countersunk cold expanded rivet holes in 7075 aluminum. In Phase II, probes will be developed for all of the common hole sizes of interest to the Air Force, and additional evaluation algorithms will be developed for other alloys such as 2024 aluminum and titanium. At the end of Phase II, field tools will be available for evaluation at Tinker AFB. The proposed work will include custom sensors, proprietary detection circuitry (patent pending), residual stress, strain and cold work studies, and correlating algorithms. Extending the technology to other surface stress processes such as peening on fan and compressor blades is also proposed for Phase II. BENEFIT: An operational need exists for a non-destructive method that can quantify the effectiveness of the cold expanded hole process. When the correct amount of residual stress is induced around a cold expanded rivet hole, fatigue life is enhanced up to 20,000 hours. However, because there is no method to guarantee, 100%, that the correct amount of residual compressive stress was created, the process cannot be given credit in design calculations. It is presently done to provide un-credited safety margin. The proposed validation device for cold expanded holes will provide 100% inspection and thus enable the design credit.

The U.S. Navy seeks a proactive approach to reinforce the thin walled corrosion resistant steel (CRES) pipes at the welded joints in order to prevent potential leaks from occurring in situations where joint cracks are generated. Currently, there is no known product available to meet this need. Resodyn Corporation proposes for development a clear, tough, corrosion protective, VOC-free thermoplastic, joint reinforcement coating (JRC) to address the U.S. Navy's need under consideration. The JRC will be capable to strongly adhere to CRES substrates, and will be sprayable in hard-to-reach, confined spaces. The clear thermoplastic component will be primarily based on a strong and affordable thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) characterized by excellent chemical resistance to hydrocarbon fluids such as JP-5, transmission fluids, motor oils, etc. The resin will be further reinforced with cutting edge anisotropic fillers in amounts that will not hurt transparency. The JRC's "see through" nature will offer the possibility to non-destructively inspect the joint welds periodically through a visual examination. Resodyn Corporation's patented Polymer Thermal Spray (PTS) technology will be employed to deposit the resultant JRC materials starting from precursor materials in the solid state, powdery form. The PTS technology also allows for coating repairment in short periods of time.

Resodyn Corporation proposes to develop a single tough thermoplastic polymer coating material and system solution for aluminum and composite boat hulls. The coating functions as an adhesive for attaching doubler plates. It encapsulates and prevents water from corroding metal substrates plus it is hydrophobic and can include corrosion inhibitors and colorant. Basic polymer components are tough thermoplastics which are intrinsically impact resistant and abrasion resistant. Thermoplastic coatings are field repairable using a heat gun. No solvents chemical mixing is required. Technical work entails procuring aluminum and composite test specimens, formulating several different coating materials, test and evaluation. Programmatic work will compare the proposed solution to current practice and estimate a cost benefit to the government. A preliminary experiment and extending Resodyn Corporations existing Polymer Thermo Spray technology suggests a high likelihood of success.
