921. Modeling the Influence of Limestone Filler on Cement Hydration in CEMHYD3D
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/1/2006
Author: Dale P Bentz
Abstract: The ASTM C150 standard specification for portland cement now permits the addition of up to 5 % limestone filler. While these and much higher levels of limestone filler substitution have been employed in Europe and elsewhere for many years, the chang ...

922. R-22 Replacement Status (in Italian)
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/1/2006
Authors: J M Calm, Piotr A Domanski
Abstract: Since its initial recognition in 1928 and commercialization in 1936, R-22 has been applied in systems ranging from the smallest window air conditioners to the largest chillers and heat pumps, including those for district cooling and heating. Individ ...

923. Requirements for an Effective Reverberation Chamber: Unloaded or Loaded
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/1/2006
Authors: Christopher L Holloway, David Allan Hill, Galen H Koepke, John M Ladbury
Abstract: In this paper we present two versions of a threshold metric for the purpose of accessing the effectiveness of a reverberation chamber. One metric is based on the chamber quality factor (Q), and the other is based on the volume of the loaded reverbera ...

924. 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 ...

925. 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 ...

926. 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 ...

927. 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 ...

928. 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 ...

929. 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 ...

930. 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
