82. Accelerated Stress Test Assessment of Through-Silicon Vias Using RF Signals
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 6/1/2013
Authors: Chukwudi Azubuike Okoro, Pavel Kabos, Jan Obrzut, Klaus Hummler, Yaw S Obeng
Abstract: In this work, radio frequency (RF) signal is demonstrated as an effective metrology tool for the assessment of the effect of thermal cycling on the reliability of through-silicon via (TSV) stacked dies. It was found that RF signal integrity of TSV da ...

83. Assessment of the glassy phase reactivity in fly ashes used for geopolymer cements
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 6/1/2013
Authors: Paul E Stutzman, Katherine Aughenbaugh, Maria Juenger
Abstract: Geopolymer cements have not found widespread use as a portland cement replacement, in part due to the difficulty in proportioning mixtures in a reliable manner. Unlike portland cements, which are mixed with water, geopolymer cements contain caus ...

84. Use of RF-Based Technique as a Metrology Tool for TSV Reliability Analysis
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 5/28/2013
Authors: Chukwudi Azubuike Okoro, Yaw S Obeng, Jan Obrzut, Pavel Kabos, Klaus Hummler
Abstract: In this work, we used radio frequency (RF) based measurement technique is used as a prognostic tool for the assessment of the effect of thermal cycling on the reliability of through-silicon via (TSV) stacked dies. It was found that RF signal integrit ...

85. Analysis of the NIST Commercial and Institutional Building Envelope Leakage Database
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 5/22/2013
Authors: Steven J Emmerich, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: In 1998, NIST published a review of commercial and institutional building airtightness data that found significant levels of air leakage and debunked the ,mythŠ of the airtight commercial building (Persily 1998). Since then, NIST has expanded and mai ...

86. MIMO Capacity in 2-D and 3-D Isotropic Environments
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 5/21/2013
Authors: Ryan J. Pirkl, Catherine A Remley
Abstract: We analyze the distribution of MIMO channel capacity for different antennas in 2-D and 3-D statistically isotropic environments. These represent possible test environments that may be generated by multi-probe anechoic and reverberation chambers, ...

87. R134a/Al2O3 Nanolubricant Mixture Boiling on a Rectangular Finned Pool Boiling Surface with Extensive Measurement and Analysis Details (NIST TN 1721)
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1721
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 5/16/2013
Author: Mark A Kedzierski
Abstract: This paper quantifies the influence of Al2O3 nanoparticles on the pool boiling performance of R134a/polyolester mixtures on a rectangular finned boiling surface. A nanolubricant containing roughly 10 nm diameter Al2O3 nanoparticles of various vo ...

89. Impact of Test and Foam Design on Smoldering
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1799
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 5/14/2013
Authors: Mauro Zammarano, Szabolcs Matko, Rick D Davis
Abstract: Smoldering propensity of fabrics used in upholstered furniture can be assessed using foam mockups according to the CPSC proposed regulation. This approach requires a polyurethane flexible foam with reproducible and well- characterized smoldering ...
