21. Exploring background variability of a low-level (quartz) gas proportional counter using pulse shape and distribution analysis
Published: 8/29/2012
Authors: George A Klouda, James J Filliben
Abstract: Low-level gas proportional counting presents special challenges to the measurement process. Generally, measurement systems for this purpose have unique signal-processing capabilities through specialized electronics and software for maintaining a sta ...

22. Optimization of processing method for recovery of bacteria from wipes used in biological surface sampling
Published: 8/3/2012
Authors: Autumn S. Downey, Sandra Maria Da Silva, Jayne B Morrow, James J Filliben, Nathanael D Olson
Abstract: Environmental sampling for microbiological contaminants is a key component of hygiene monitoring and risk characterization practices utilized across diverse fields of application. However, confidence in surface sampling results, both in the field an ...

23. Composites Failure Criteria, Uncertainty Propagation, and Estimation of the A-Basis and B-Basis Design Allowables
Published: 7/7/2012
Authors: Jeffrey T Fong, Nathanael A Heckert, James J Filliben
Abstract: In a 2002 paper on a summary of the so-called World-Wide Failure Exercise by Hinton, Kaddour, and Soden (Composites Science and Technology, 62: 1725-1797), in which fourteen deterministic theories for predicting failure in composite laminates were "t ...

24. Predicting Global Failure Regimes in Complex Information Systems
Published: 6/19/2012
Authors: Christopher E Dabrowski, James J Filliben, Kevin L Mills
Abstract: Over the past five years, we investigated methods to characterize global behavior in large distributed systems and applied those methods to predict effects from deploying alternate distributed control algorithms. The methods we used assess global beh ...

25. Sensitivity Analysis for Biometric Systems: A Methodology Based on Orthogonal Experiment Designs
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7855
Published: 5/17/2012
Authors: Yooyoung Lee, James J Filliben, Ross J Micheals, P Jonathon Phillips
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to introduce an effective and structured methodology for carrying out a biometric system sensitivity analysis. The goal of sensitivity analysis is to provide the researcher/developer with the insight and understanding of ...

26. A systematic approach to the study of accelerated weathering in building joint sealants
Published: 5/1/2012
Authors: Christopher C White, Donald Lee Hunston, Kar T. Tan, James J Filliben
Abstract: An accurate service life prediction model is urgently needed for building joint sealants to reduce the enormous cost associated with long-term field weathering. A stepping stone to the success of this effort is the precise control of environmental va ...

27. Comparing VM-Placement Algorithms for On-Demand Clouds
Published: 11/29/2011
Authors: Kevin L Mills, James J Filliben, Christopher E Dabrowski
Abstract: Much recent research has been devoted to investigating algorithms for allocating virtual machines (VMs) to physical machines (PMs) in infrastructure clouds. Many such algorithms address distinct problems, such as initial placement, consolidation, or ...

28. Ocular and Iris Recognition Baseline Algorithm
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7828
Published: 11/7/2011
Authors: Yooyoung Lee, Ross J Micheals, James J Filliben, P Jonathon Phillips, Hassan A. Sahibzada
Abstract: Due to its distinctiveness, the human eye is a popular biometricv feature used to identity a person with high accuracy. The Grand Challenge in biometrics is to have an effective algorithm for subject verification or identification under a broad ...

Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Report Number: 116-5
Published: 10/5/2011
Authors: Kevin L Mills, James J Filliben
Abstract: Experimenters characterize the behavior of simulation models for data communications networks by measuring multiple responses under selected parameter combinations. The resulting multivariate data may include redundant responses reflecting aspects of ...

30. Service Life Prediction for Sealants
Published: 9/29/2011
Authors: Christopher C White, Donald Lee Hunston, Kar T. Tan, James J Filliben
Abstract: Previous industry consensus postulated that four elements of the weather: Temperature, Humidity, Ultraviolet Radiation, and Mechanical loading were responsible for the majority of the changes observed in sealants exposed to outdoor weathering. The N ...
