911. Cost-Effectiveness Tool Primer: Software Overview
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 1/31/2006
Authors: Robert E Chapman, Amy S. Rushing
Abstract: Economic tools are needed to help the owners and managers of buildings, industrial facilities, and other critical infrastructure to select cost-effective combinations of mitigation strategies that respond to natural and man-made hazards. Economic to ...

912. Surface oxidation of Permalloy thin films
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 1/24/2006
Authors: M. R. Fitzsimmons, Thomas J Silva, T. M. Crawford
Abstract: The chemical and magnetic structures of oxides on the surface of Permalloy Ni^d81^Fe^d19^ films were investigated as functions of annealing time with x-ray and polarized neutron reflectometry. For annealing times of less than one hour, the oxide cons ...

913. Enhanced ferromagnetic damping in Permalloy/Cu bilayers
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 1/18/2006
Authors: Thomas Gerrits, Michael Schneider, Thomas J Silva
Abstract: We have investigated the enhancement of ferromagnetic damping for thin Permalloy (Ni^d80^Fe^d20^) films grown with Cu capping layers of variable thickness (5-1000nm). The measurements were performed with a pulsed inductive microwave magnetometer in t ...

914. Effect of tensile strain on grain connectivity and flux pinning in Bi^d2^Sr^d2^Ca^d2^Cu^d3^O^dx^ tapes
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 1/17/2006
Authors: Daniel Cornelis van der Laan, John (Jack) Ekin, Hans JN van Eck, M Dhalle, Bennie ten Haken, Michael W Davidson, Justin Schwartz
Abstract: The grain-to-grain connectivity in Bi^d2^Sr^d2^Ca^d2^Cu^d3^O^dx^ tapes is still poorly understood, even though they have been commercially available in long lengths for several years. This letter explains the effects of tensile strain on the grain-to ...

915. Mechanical properties of pure Ni and Ni-alloy substrate materials for Y-Ba-Cu-O coated suprconductors
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 1/4/2006
Authors: Cameron C. Clickner, John (Jack) Ekin, Najib Cheggour, C. L. H. Thieme, You-Lin Qiao, Y Y Xie, P Goyal
Abstract: Mechanical properties of rolling-assisted, biaxially-textured substrates (RABiTS) and substrates for ion-beam assisted deposition (IBAD) coated superconductors are measured at room temperature, 76, and 4 K. Yield strength, Young's modulus, and the pr ...

916. Building Tactical Information System for Public Safety OfficialsIntelligent Building Response (iBR)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7314
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 1/2/2006
Authors: David G Holmberg, William D. Davis, Stephen J. Treado, K A. Reed
Abstract: The present work has as its vision that there should be a standard means of collecting and transporting building information (and most importantly real-time system data) available in buildings out to the public safety officers that need it. This incl ...

917. A Hierarchical Rule-Based Fault Detection and Diagnostic Method for HVAC Systems
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 1/1/2006
Authors: J Schein, Steven T Bushby

918. A Review of the History of Fire Suppression of U.S. DOD Aircraft
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 984-4
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 1/1/2006
Author: Donald Bein
Abstract: A review of the history of fire suppression on U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) aircraft is presented to provide a context against which the findings of the Next Generation Fire Suppression Technology Program (NGP) can be assessed. These findings are ...

919. Capital Facilities Information Handover Guide
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7259
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 1/1/2006
Authors: Kristine K Fallon, Mark E Palmer
Abstract: This document provides guidelines for establishing the requirements and mechanisms for the exchange of facilities information among parties, from project inception through operations and maintenance to facility disposal.

920. Covariance-Based Uncertainty Analysis of the NIST Electro-optic Sampling System
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 1/1/2006
Authors: Dylan F Williams, Arkadiusz C. (Arkadiusz) Lewandowski, Tracy S. Clement, C. M. Wang, Paul D Hale, Juanita M. Morgan, Darryl A. Keenan, Andrew Dienstfrey
Abstract: We develop a covariance matrix describing the uncertainty of mismatch-corrected measurements performed on the National Institute of Standards and Technology's electro-optic sampling system. This description offers a general way of describing the unce ...
