31. Re-Certification of SRM 2492: Bingham Paste Mixture for Rheological Measurements
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 260-182
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 8/25/2015
Authors: Chiara F Ferraris, Alex Olivas, William F Guthrie, Blaza Toman
Abstract: Rheological measurements are often performed using a rotational rheometer. In this type of rheometer, the tested fluid is sheared between two surfaces, one of which is rotating [1]. Usually, an angular velocity is imposed on the fluid (through the ro ...

32. Diffraction limited focusing and directing of gap plasmons by a metal-dielectric-metal lens
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 8/24/2015
Authors: Brian Scott Dennis, David Czaplewski, Michael Haftel, Daniel Lopez, Girsh Blumberg, Vladimir A Aksyuk
Abstract: Passive optical elements can play key roles in photonic applications such as plasmonic integrated circuits. Here we experimentally demonstrate passive gap-plasmon focusing and directing in two-dimensions. This is accomplished using a high numerical-a ...

33. Performance of a dual Fabry-Perot cavity refractometer
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 8/18/2015
Authors: Patrick F Egan, Jack A Stone Jr., Jay H Hendricks, Jacob E Ricker, Gregory E Scace, Gregory F Strouse
Abstract: We have built and characterized a refractometer that utilizes two Fabry-Perot cavities formed on a dimensionally stable spacer. In the typical mode of operation, one cavity is held at vacuum and the other cavity is filled with nitrogen gas. The dif ...

34. Using the Amplitude Variation of a Reverberation Chamber Channel to Predict the Synchronization of a Wireless Digital Communication Test System
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 8/16/2015
Authors: Ray R Tanuhardja, Luis Alberto Gonzalez, Chih-Ming Wang, William F Young, Catherine A Remley
Abstract: This contribution discusses the use of a metric based on the amplitude variation of a channel in the signal bandwidth to predict whether or not a digital wireless communication test system receiver will be able to demodulate a test signal. This metri ...

35. Ignition of Wood Fencing Assemblies Exposed to Continuous-Wind Driven Firebrand Showers
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 7/30/2015
Authors: Sayaka Suzuki, Erik L Johnsson, Alexander Maranghides, Samuel L Manzello
Abstract: A series of experiments were conducted to examine ignition of wood fencing assemblies subjected to continuous, wind-driven firebrand showers. Specifically, Western Red Cedar and Redwood fencing assemblies were exposed to continuous, wind-driven ...

36. A Differential Form of the Kramers-Kronig Relation for Determining a Lorentz-Type of Refractive Index
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 7/22/2015
Authors: Sung Kim, David R Novotny, Joshua A Gordon, Jeffrey R Guerrieri
Abstract: The integral forms of the Kramers-Kronig (KK) relations that relate the real and imaginary parts, n' and n", of a refractive index require the integral to be conducted over the full spectrum. In this paper, we derive a differential form of the KK rel ...

37. High Performance IAQ Specification for Net Zero Energy Homes
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 7/19/2015
Authors: Anthony Bernheim, Alred Hodgson, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) constructed a Net Zero Energy Residential Test Facility (NZERTF) to support the development and adoption of cost-effective NZE designs and technologies. Key design objectives include providing ...

38. Indoor Environmental Resilience: White Paper
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 7/16/2015
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: NIST is developing a framework to define programs and strategies to increase community-based resilience in the face of a broad range of natural disasters and other extreme events. Many of these events will affect indoor environmental quality either t ...

39. Interference and Coexistence of Wireless Systems in Critical Infrastructure
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1885
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 7/7/2015
Authors: Galen H. Koepke, William F Young, John M Ladbury, Jason B Coder
Abstract: We examine interference and coexistence testing issues, test methods, and the need to update and develop new test methodologies related to the use of wireless devices in critical infrastructure systems. A case study on interference is presented ...

40. HIGH-Q ON-CHIP MICROWAVE RESONATOR FOR SENSITIVE PERMITTIVITY DETECTION IN NANOLITER VOLUMES
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 6/21/2015
Authors: A Padilla, Alex Watson, Christopher L Holloway, James C Booth
Abstract: This work presents the design, fabrication and characterization results for a thick film (6µm Cu), coplanar waveguide (CPW) resonator operating at 2.2GHz with a high Q (~177), integrated with a microfluidic channel. We demonstrate detection of change ...
