61. Compact Force Sensors for Low-Force Mechanical Probe Calibration
Published: 9/1/2002
Authors: Jon Robert Pratt, Douglas T Smith, S Woody
Abstract: The loading mechanisms of instrumented indentation machines are often calibrated using deadweights. In many cases, due to the geometry of the loading frame, the applied deadweight is tensile, while the indentation leads to be measured are compressive ...

63. The NIST Microforce Realization and Measurement Project
Published: 6/1/2002
Authors: David B Newell, Jon Robert Pratt, John A Kramar, Douglas T Smith, Edwin Ross Williams
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has launched a five-year Micro-force Realization and Measurement project focusing on the development of an instrument and laboratory capable of realizing and measuring the SI unit of force bel ...

65. Regenerative Stability Analysis of Highly Interrupted Machining
Published: 5/1/2002
Authors: Matthew A. Davies, Jon Robert Pratt, Brian S. Dutterer, Timothy J Burns
Abstract: We discuss theoretical and experimental work that supports the use of very low radia immersion in the high-speed milling of difficult-to-machine materials, such as titanium alloys. Our theory is based upon modeling the cutting process by a kicked ha ...

66. Stability Prediction For Low Radial Immersion Milling
Published: 5/1/2002
Authors: Matthew A. Davies, Jon Robert Pratt, Brian S. Dutterer, Timothy J Burns
Abstract: Traditional regenerative stability theory predicts a set of optimally stable spindle speeds at integer fractions of the national frequency of the most flexible mode of the system. The assumptions of this theory become invalid for highly interrupted m ...

67. A Flexure Balance With Adjustable Restoring Torque for Nanonewton Force Measurement
Published: 1/1/2002
Authors: Jon Robert Pratt, David B Newell, John A Kramar
Abstract: The NIST electrostatic force balance compares mechanical probe forces to an SI realization of force derived from measurements of the capacitance gradient and voltage in an electronic null balance. As we approach the nanonewton regime, the finite stif ...

68. Interrupted machining-a Doubling in the Number of Stability Lobes? Part 1 Theoretical Development
Published: 1/1/2002
Authors: Matthew A. Davies, Jon Robert Pratt, Brian S. Dutterer, Timothy J Burns
Abstract: Traditional regenerative stability theory predicts sets of spindle speeds that are most resistant to the development of chatter.  Considering regeneration alone, these spindle speeds are approximately at integer fractions of the natural frequenc ...

69. NIST Electrostatic Force Balance Experiment
Published: 1/1/2002
Authors: John A Kramar, David B Newell, Jon Robert Pratt
Abstract: We have designed and built a prototype electrostatic force balance for realizing forces in the micronewton range. The active electrodes are concentric cylinders, the outer serving as the reference and the inner suspended and guided by a rectilinear f ...

70. SI Traceability of Force at the Nanonewton Level
Published: 7/1/2001
Authors: David B Newell, Jon Robert Pratt, John A Kramar, Douglas T Smith, L. A. Feeney, Edwin Ross Williams
Abstract: Although nanonewton force measurements are commonplace in industry, no National Measurement Institute supports a link to the International System of Units (SI) below one newton. The National Institute of Standards and Technology has launched a five- ...
