Published: 11/5/2015
Authors: Kar T. Tan, Christopher C White, Donald Lee Hunston, Justin M Gorham, Michael Imburgia, Aaron M Forster, Vogt D Bryan
Abstract: Engineering joints consisting of polymer/inorganic interfaces are commonly exposed to less than ideal conditions during normal service; these environmental conditions present a significant challenge for maintaining the structural integrity of the int ...

2. NIST-TAPPI Workshop on Measurement Needs for Cellulose Nanomaterial
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1192
Published: 6/23/2015
Authors: Chelsea Simone Davis, Robert J Moon, Sean Ireland, Linda Johnston, Jo Anne Shatkin, Kim Nelson, E. Johan Foster, Aaron M Forster, Michael T Postek, Andras Vladar, Jeffrey W Gilman
Abstract: A one-day workshop focused on the Measurement Needs for Cellulosic Nanomaterials was organized by the National Institute of Standards and Technology and held in conjunction with the 2014 TAPPI International Conference on Nanotechnology for Renewa ...

3. Materials Testing Standards for Additive Manufacturing of Polymer Materials: State of the Art and Standards Applicability
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 8059
Published: 5/15/2015
Author: Aaron M Forster
Abstract: Additive manufacturing (AM) continues to grow as an advanced manufacturing technique. The most recent industry report from Wohlers and Associates indicates AM represented $1.6Bin revenue from parts, systems, and other supporting industries in 201 ...

Published: 3/11/2015
Authors: Christopher C White, Kar T. Tan, Donald Lee Hunston, Aaron M Forster, Deborah L Stanley
Abstract: Accelerated and natural aging of safety films used in protective glazing systems was investigated by the use of Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy and tensile tests. Accelerated conditions involved simult ...

5. Long-Term Stability of UHMWPE Fibers
Published: 2/18/2015
Authors: Amanda Lattam Forster, Aaron M Forster, Joannie W Chin, Chiao-Chi Lin, Sylvain H. Petit, Kai-Li Kang, Nicholas G Paulter Jr., Michael A Riley, Kirk D Rice
Abstract: The superior performance of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene fi bers is predicated on the development of a highly aligned molecular structure that allows the polymer to exhibit a superior strength in the axial direction of the fi ber. Body ar ...

6. Role of salt on adhesion of an epoxy/aluminium (oxide) interface in aqueous environments
Published: 2/16/2014
Authors: Christopher C White, Kar T. Tan, Donald Lee Hunston, Justin M Gorham, Aaron M Forster, Vogt D Bryan
Abstract: The durability of adhesive joints in hostile environments is a major area of concern in structural adhesive bonding. Therefore, understanding the mechanics and mechanisms of degradation of adhesive joints is a key factor for more extensive use in fut ...

7. Recommendations for Specifying Idealized Bust Surrogates for the Testing of Female Stab Resistant Armor
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7962
Published: 11/20/2013
Authors: Amanda Lattam Forster, Kirk D Rice, Michael A Riley, Aaron M Forster
Abstract: This document describes recommendations provided to the National Institute of Justice's (NIJ) Special Technical Committee (STC) for the revision of the Stab Resistant Body Armor Standard related to the specification of idealized bust surrogates for a ...

8. Indentation device for in situ Raman spectroscopic and optical studies
Published: 12/12/2012
Authors: Yvonne Beatrice Gerbig, Chris A Michaels, Aaron M Forster, John W Hettenhouser, Walter Eric Byrd, Dylan J. Morris, Robert Francis Cook
Abstract: Instrumented indentation is a widely used technique to study the mechanical behavior of materials at small length scales and thus has been exploited in particular for metals, ceramics, glasses, and polymers. Mechanical tests of bulk materials, micros ...

9. Imaging the Molecular Structure of Polyethylene Blends with Broadband Coherent Raman Microscopy
Published: 11/8/2012
Authors: Young Jong Lee, Chad R Snyder, Aaron M Forster, Marcus T Cicerone, Wen-Li Wu
Abstract: Polyethylene (PE) is a ubiquitous material in our daily life appearing as milk bottles, toys and diapers. A lesser-known but increasingly important use of PE is as underground gas and water pipes, because of its ease of installation and lack of corr ...

10. Identifying the Dynamic Compressive Stiffness of a Prospective Biomimetic Elastomer by an Inverse Method
Published: 5/14/2012
Authors: Steven P Mates, Aaron M Forster, Donald Hunston, Richard Everett, Kirth Simmonds, Amit Bagchi
Abstract: Elastomeric materials that mimic real soft human tissues are sought to provide realistic experimental devices to simulate the human body‰s response to concussive loading so that better protective equipment can be developed. Tissue injury occurs under ...
