11. Formation of Extended Ionomeric Network by Bulk Polymerization of L,D-lactide with Layered Double Hydroxide
Topic: Green Manufacturing
Published: 11/22/2012
Authors: Edward D. McCarthy, Mauro Zammarano, Douglas M. Fox, Ryan C Nieuwendaal, Yeon S. Kim, P H Maupin, Paul C Trulove, Jeffrey W Gilman
Abstract: We report the formation of an ionomeric network in a poly(L,D-lactide) hybrid nanocomposite, (PLDLA-HYB) during in-situ melt polymerization of L,D lactide in the presence of magnesium/aluminium layered-double-hydroxide (LDH) without added catalyst. ...

Topic: Green Manufacturing
Published: 8/17/2012
Authors: Mahesh Mani, Jatinder Madan, Jae H. Lee, Kevin W Lyons, Satyandra Kumar Gupta
Abstract: Manufacturing industries lack the measurement science and the needed information base to measure and effectively compare performances of manufacturing processes, resources and associated services with respect to sustainability. The current use of ...

Topic: Green Manufacturing
Published: 6/15/2012
Authors: Jatinder Madan, Mahesh Mani, Princepal Singh, Amrik Singh
Abstract: Currently available sustainability analysis systems for the die-casting process primarily depend on the material properties and do not account for process information. As a result they are unable to assess or compare the sustainability of parts made ...

14. Control of Molecular Mass Distributions in Enzymatic Lactone Polymerizations
Topic: Green Manufacturing
Published: 2/2/2012
Authors: Santanu S. Kundu, Peter M. Johnson, Kathryn L Beers
Abstract: Using a model developed for the enzyme catalyzed polymerization and degradation of poly(caprolactone), we illustrate methods and the kinetic mechanisms necessary to improve molecular mass distributions by manipulating equilibrium reactions in the kin ...

15. Simulation and Analysis for Sustainability in Manufacturing Processes
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7790
Topic: Green Manufacturing
Published: 5/11/2011
Authors: Mahesh Mani, Kevin W Lyons, Alexander Paul Muroyama, Bjorn Johan Ingemar Johansson
Abstract: Sustainability has become a ubiquitous term in almost every field, especially in engineering design and manufacturing. Recently, an increased awareness of environmental problems and resource depletion has led to an emphasis on environmentally friendl ...

Topic: Green Manufacturing
Published: 5/2/2011
Authors: Shaw C Feng, Prabir Sarkar, Che B. Joung, John Carrell
Abstract: Sustainable manufacturing promotes manufacturing processes that minimize environmental and social impacts while maintaining economic benefits. To achieve this, manufacturers seek metrics and measurement methods to enable them to track the progress an ...

17. Information Model for Disassembly for Reuse, Recycling, and Remanufacturing
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7772
Topic: Green Manufacturing
Published: 4/13/2011
Author: Shaw C Feng
Abstract: Disassembly process is an essential activity in the mid and end of a product‰s service life cycle. Maintenance is a mid product life activity, which involves disassembly, cleaning, repair, replace, inspection, and reassembly. Remanufacturing, reuse, ...

18. An Engineer Grapples with Sustainable Manufacturing
Topic: Green Manufacturing
Published: 4/1/2011
Author: Vijay Srinivasan
Abstract: A personal view by the author of how, as a research engineer and manager, first in the private sector and now in government service, he witnessed the emergence of a compelling case for sustainable manufacturing and also gained several important insig ...

19. A Prototype of Modeling and Simulation for Sustainable Machining
Topic: Green Manufacturing
Published: 1/19/2011
Authors: Guodong Shao, Eric Chernow, Deogratias Kibira, Kevin W Lyons
Abstract: Modeling and simulation techniques have frequently been utilized to analyze manufacturing processes. The simulation of Numerically Controlled (NC) machine tools is preferred to real machine testing of the programs due to the potential savings of time ...

20. National Workshop on Challenges to Innovation in Advanced Manufacturing: Industry Drivers and R&D Needs
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7723
Topic: Green Manufacturing
Published: 9/30/2010
Author: John A. Slotwinski
Abstract: Representatives from manufacturers, academic research laboratories, the federal government and other organizations met on November 3rd and 4th, 2009 in Gaithersburg, Maryland to discuss the drivers that are encouraging companies and industries to int ...
