The Technology Utilization Program of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration aims to transfer space-related technology to the solution of nonspace problems. One of the areas is transportation. Members of SRI Technology Applications Team routinely work with a user community comprising, among others, DOT and the railroads. Rail industry needs addressed by the team included: the need for early warning of impending roller bearing failure; detection of residual stresses in wheels and rails; dynamic relationships between cars and track; quieting of diesel locomotive exhaust; fire-resistant construction materials and improved management techniques (for the rapid-transit industry).
