1. Use of the Grand Canonical Transition-Matrix Monte Carlo Method to Model Gas Adsorption in Porous Materials
Topic: Evaluation
Published: 2/21/2013
Authors: Daniel W Siderius, Vincent K Shen
Abstract: We present grand canonical transition-matrix Monte Carlo (GC-TMMC) as an efficient method for simulating gas adsorption processes, with particular emphasis on subcritical gas adsorption in which capillary phase transitions are present. As in other a ...

2. Discriminating the states of matter in metallic nanoparticle transformations: What are we missing?
Topic: Evaluation
Published: 2/20/2013
Authors: John M Pettibone, Julien C. Gigault, Vincent A Hackley
Abstract: A limiting factor in assessing the risk of current and emerging nanomaterials in biological and environmental systems is the ability to accurately detect and characterize their size, shape and composition in broad distributions and complex media. Asy ...

3. Coming Full Circle: The Application of Microtechnology Techniques to Evaluate Bulk Materials
Topic: Evaluation
Published: 11/29/2010
Authors: David Thomas Read, Nicholas Barbosa
Abstract: A tensile test procedure that accommodates specimens with gauge section 25 μm by 70 μm by 300 μm was developed and demonstrated. The instrumentation and technique were adapted from those previously developed and used to test thin films ...

4. On Lamb Modes as a Function of Acoustic Emission Source Rise Time
Topic: Evaluation
Published: 1/1/2010
Author: Marvin Arnold Hamstad
Abstract: A study was carried out to examine Lamb-wave modal content as a function of the acoustic emission (AE) source rise time. The study used a validated finite element code to model the source operation and subsequent wave propagation up to a distance of ...

5. A Practical and Systematic Review of Weibull Statistics for Reporting Strengths of Dental Materials
Topic: Evaluation
Published: 9/11/2009
Authors: Janet Quinn, George David Quinn
Abstract: Objective: To review the history, theory and current applications of Weibull analysis sufficient to make informed decisions regarding practical use of the analysis in dental material strength testing. Data: References are made to examples in the eng ...

6. Comparison of Wavelet Transform and Choi-Williams Distribution to Determine Group Velocities for Different Acoustic Emission Sensors
Topic: Evaluation
Published: 12/31/2008
Author: Marvin Arnold Hamstad
Abstract: Acoustic emission (AE) sources in a plate generate dispersive Lamb waves. In this research, pencil lead breaks (PLBs) were made on an edge of a 3.1 mm thick aluminum alloy plate to generate such AE waves. The PLBs were made near the plate midplane an ...

7. Crystallographic Texture in Ceramics and Metals
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Topic: Evaluation
Published: 12/1/2001
Author: Mark D Vaudin
Abstract: Preferred crystallographic orientation, or texture, occurs almost universally, both in natural and man-made systems. Many components and devices in electronic and magnetic systems are fabricated from materials that have crystallographic texture. The ...
