Designer diamond anvils created to withstand highly extreme environments to extend life of sensors, circuits, and tools used in advanced platforms.

Sensor technology improvement and extension of life of sensors in extreme environments

Engineering

Inventors at The University of Alabama at Birmingham have found a way to analyze whole unfractured cylindrical core samples, the entire outer surface areas of which are eligible to receive the pulse.

Geological Measurements

Engineering

Investigators at UAB have developed a system and method for measuring linear and rotational forces that incorporate a dummy to dummy impact that can accurately replicate on-field impact conditions.

Testing of athletic head gear

Engineering

Investigators at UAB have developed a clamp (or stop collar) and hardware system that can attach buoyancy modules to the landing string drill pipes, reducing the overall weight carried by the drilling rig.

Offshore drilling

Engineering

Researchers at The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) have designed a novel coiled containment terminal solution which prevents a compression-induced hinging event.
