991. Analyzing Carbon Fiber Composite Materials with Equivalent Layer
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 11/1/2005
Authors: Christopher L Holloway, M. S. Sarto, Martin Johansson
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is toinvestigate the use of effective layer models for the analysis of carbon fiber composite materials. In this paper, we present three different models for the electromagnetic characterization (effective material propertie ...

992. Characterization of Candle Flames
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 11/1/2005
Authors: Anthony P Hamins, Matthew F Bundy, Scott E. Dillon
Abstract: Common household open flame and radiant ignition sources are the actual or suspected cause for many fires. The purpose of this research is to identify the burning behavior and properties of common candles in order to provide additional tools for use ...

993. Characterization of Candles Flames as Ignition Sources
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 11/1/2005
Authors: Scott E. Dillon, Anthony P Hamins, Matthew F Bundy
Abstract: Common household open flame and radiant ignition sources are the actual or suspected cause for many fires. Because of their popular use, fire investigators have identified candles as one of the most important of these ignition sources. In spite of ...

994. Radiation Patterns of Unintentional Antennas: Estimates, Simulations, and Measurements
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 11/1/2005
Author: Perry F. Wilson
Abstract: Electronic devices designed for purposes other than transmitting and receiving electromagnetic fields nonetheless act as unintentional antennas. Measurements methods are needed to characterize these antennas for electromagnetic compatibility tests; h ...

995. Realization of a Controllable Metafilm (``Smart Surface'') Composed of Resonant Magnetodielectric Particles: Measurements and Theory
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 11/1/2005
Authors: Christopher L Holloway, Pavel Kabos, Mohamed Mohamed, Edward Kuester, Michael D Janezic, James R. Baker-Jarvis
Abstract: In previous work, we derived generalized sheet-transition conditions (GSTCs) for the average electromagnetic fields across a metafilm, which, when properly designed, can have certain desired reflection and transmission properties. A metafilm is the t ...

996. Reflection and Transmission Properties of a Metafilm with Application to a Controllable Surface Composed of Resonant Particles
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 11/1/2005
Authors: Christopher L Holloway, Mohamed Mohamed, Edward Kuester
Abstract: In recent work, we derived generalized sheet transition conditions (GSTCs) for the average electromagnetic fields across a metafilm, which, when properly designed, can have certain desired reflection and transmission properties. A metafilm is the two ...

997. Secure Messaging in BACnet
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 11/1/2005
Author: David G Holmberg
Abstract: A proposal for BACnet secure messaging is nearing public release by the BACnet standard committee (ASHRAE SSPC-135). The proposal adds a level of BACnet specific security to existing IT security, extending the BACnet standard to offer basic security ...

998. Angular Errors in Polarimetric Radar Cross Section Calibration Using a Rotating Dihedral
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 10/30/2005
Authors: Lorant A. Muth, Crystol William, Donald Morales, Timothy Conn
Abstract: We examine how accurately a radar cross section measurement system?s transmit and receive parameters can be determined by use of a rotating dihedral as the polarimetric calibration device. We derive expressions for the errors due to misalignment in t ...

999. Comparison of Gains Determined from the Extrapolation and Pattern Integration Methods
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 10/30/2005
Authors: Michael H Francis, Katherine MacReynolds, Jeffrey R Guerrieri
Abstract: Scientists at the National Institute of Standards (NIST) have measured the gain of several antennas using two different methods. The first method is the three-antenna extrapolation method developed at NIST in the early 1970s. The second method is the ...

1000. Planar Near-Field Measurements Results up to 94 GHz Using Probe Position Correction
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 10/30/2005
Authors: Jeffrey R Guerrieri, Katherine MacReynolds, Michael H Francis, Ronald Curtis Wittmann, Douglas T. Tamura
Abstract: This paper presents results of planar near-field measurements at 16, 35 and 94 GHz using probe position correction algorithms. The algorithms correct for position errors of the probe near the scan plane. The probe?s actual position is measured using ...
