1. A Tribometer for Measurements in Hostile Environments
Published: 6/1/1993
Authors: Andrew J Slifka, J Chaudhuri, R Compos, James D. Siegwarth
Abstract: A tribometer at the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Boulder, Colorado is used to measure the coefficient of friction and the wear rate for various specimens in a controlled atmosphere of oxygen or non-corrosive gas. The wide range ...

2. A Uniaxial BioMEMS Device for Quantitative Force-Displacement Measurements
Published: 4/3/2007
Authors: David Serrell, Tammy L. Oreskovic, Andrew J Slifka, Roop L Mahajan, Dudley Finch
Abstract: There is a need for experimental techniques that allow the simultaneous imaging of cellular cystoskeletal components with quantitative force measurements on single cells. A bioMEMS device has been developed for the application of strain to a single c ...

3. A Uniaxial bioMEMS device for imaging single cell response during quantitative force-displacement measurements
Published: 12/1/2008
Authors: David Serrell, Jera Law, Andrew J Slifka, Roop L Mahajan, Dudley S. Finch
Abstract: Mechanical forces play a key role in many cellular processes such as apoptosis and differentiation. A microfabricated device has been developed for imaging of a single, adherent cell while quantifying force under an applied strain. The device works i ...

4. A review of fatigue crack growth for pipeline steels exposed to hydrogen
Published: 11/30/2010
Authors: Nicholas Nanninga, Andrew J Slifka, Yaakov Levy, Calvin L. White
Abstract: Hydrogen pipeline systems offer an economical means of storing and transporting energy in the form of hydrogen gas. Pipelines can be used to transport hydrogen that has been generated at solar and wind farms to and from salt cavern storage locations ...

5. An Experimental Method for Measuring Mechanical Properties of Rat Pulmonary Arteries Verified With Latex
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Published: 6/1/2003
Authors: Elizabeth S Drexler, Andrew J Slifka, J Wright, Christopher N McCowan, Dudley Finch, Timothy P Quinn, J D McCloskey, Dunbar Ivy, Robin Shandas
Abstract: A study of the biomechanics and hemodynamics of pulmonary hypertension is incomplete without including mechanical properties data comparing healthy and diseased arterial tissue. In the initial stabe of this study, Sprague-Dawley rats will be induced ...

6. Apparatus for Accelerating Measurements of Environmentally Assisted Fatigue Crack Growth at Low Frequency
Published: 3/4/2014
Authors: Elizabeth S Drexler, Joseph David McColskey, Marc Dvorak, Neha N. Rustagi, Damian S Lauria, Andrew J Slifka
Abstract: Testing the fatigue crack growth of materials at low frequencies has been a tug-of-war between the investment of time and starting at high values of the stress intensity factor. Running a test at a frequency less than 1 Hz can take weeks and if meani ...

7. Apparent Mobility of Interfaces in Integral Resistor Material
Published: 1/1/2003
Authors: Andrew J Slifka, John W. Drexler
Abstract: Measurements were made on an integral resistor sample that showed apparent interfacial mobility. Initial measurements were made using infrared, optical, and scanning electron microscopies. Analysis of infrared microscopy measurements showed a broad ...

8. Characterization of Interfaces Involving Electrically Conductive Adhesives Using Electron-Beam Moire and Infrared Microscopy
Published: 3/1/2002
Authors: Andrew J Slifka, Elizabeth S Drexler
Abstract: The complimentary techniques of electron-beam moire and infrared microscopy were used to determine the mechanical and thermal degradation of interfaces involving electrically conductive adhesives. The infrared microscopy technique was used to examin ...

9. Comparison of Strength Properties of Normotensive and Hypertensive Rat Pulmonary Arteries
Published: 10/1/2004
Authors: Elizabeth S Drexler, Christopher N McCowan, J Wright, Andrew J Slifka, Dunbar Ivy, Robin Shandas
Abstract: A series of tests were conducted to quantify the difference in the mechanical properties of normo-and hypertensive pulmonary arteries. A bubble-test design was emplpoyed to measure the biaxial properties of a segment of artery. The test results compa ...

10. Comparison of hydrogen embrittlement in three pipeline steels in high pressure gaseous hydrogen environments
Published: 2/15/2012
Authors: Nicholas Nanninga, Yaakov Levy, Elizabeth S Drexler, Ryan Condon, April Stevenson, Andrew J Slifka
Abstract: The tensile properties of API-5L grades X52, X65, and X100 pipeline steels have been measured in a high pressure (13.8 MPa) hydrogen gas environment. Significant losses in elongation to failure and reduction in area were observed when testing in hyd ...
