11. Density and Speed of Sound Measurements of Four Bio-derived Fuels
Topic: Sustainability
Published: 9/13/2012
Authors: Stephanie L Outcalt, Tara J Fortin
Abstract: Compressed-liquid densities and ambient pressure densities and speeds of sound of four biomass-derived fuels have been measured. The compressed-liquid measurements were made from 270 K to 470 K, and 0.5 MPa to 50 MPa. The ambient pressure measureme ...

15. Environmental impact of manufactured products: A measure inspired by nature
Topic: Sustainability
Published: 7/10/2009
Authors: Prabir Sarkar, Rachuri Rachuri, Hyo Won Suh, Kevin W Lyons, Ram D Sriram
Abstract: Environmental impacts of products are generally determined by using criteria or indicators. There are many criteria or indicators available and during design selecting some of them and assigning weight is difficult. As natural systems are considered ...

16. Large-area irradiance-mode spectral response measurements of solar cells by a light-emitting-diode- based integrating sphere source
Topic: Sustainability
Published: 5/30/2014
Authors: Behrang H Hamadani, John F Roller, Andrew M Shore, Brian P Dougherty, Howard W Yoon
Abstract: An irradiance-mode absolute differential spectral response measurement system based on a light emitting diode (LED) array is described. The LEDs are coupled to an integrating sphere whose output irradiance is uniform to better than 2 % over an ar ...

18. Saturation molalities and standard molar enthalpies of solution of alpha-D-xylose(cr) in H2O(l); Standard molar enthalpies of solution of 1,4-beta-D-xylobiose(am), and 1,4-beta-D-xylotriose(am) in H2O(l)
Topic: Sustainability
Published: 5/14/2012
Authors: Robert Nathan Goldberg, Brian E Lang, Bruce Coxon, Stephen R. Decker
Abstract: The saturation molality of alpha-D-xylose(cr) in water was measured by using HPLC and is m(sat) = (8.43 ± 0.42) mol∙kg-1 at the temperature T = 298.15 K. It was also established that the anhydrous form of alpha-D-xylose(cr) is the crystalline ...
