1. Performance Challenges Identification Method for Smart Manufacturing Systems
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Topic: Energy
Published: 11/27/2015
Authors: Kiwook Jung, Katherine C Morris, Kevin W Lyons, Swee Kong Leong, Hyunbo Cho
Abstract: Smart Manufacturing Systems (SMS) need to be agile to adapt to new situations by using detailed, precise, and appropriate data for intelligent decision-making. The intricacy of the relationship of strategic goals to operational performance across ...

2. Layered Double Hydroxide-Based Fire Re-sistant Coatings for Flexible Polyurethane Foam
Topic: Energy
Published: 11/5/2015
Authors: Yu-Chin Li, John R Shields, Rick D Davis
Abstract: Montmorillonite clay (MMT) is frequently used to create fire resistance in Layer-by-Layer (LbL) applied coatings. This manuscript reports that switching the MMT with layered double hydroxides (LDH) produced a more effective fire resistant coating on ...

Topic: Energy
Published: 11/5/2015
Authors: Kar T. Tan, Christopher C White, Donald Lee Hunston, Justin M Gorham, Michael Imburgia, Aaron M Forster, Vogt D Bryan
Abstract: Engineering joints consisting of polymer/inorganic interfaces are commonly exposed to less than ideal conditions during normal service; these environmental conditions present a significant challenge for maintaining the structural integrity of the int ...

4. Guest Editorial Article: Special Issue on Cyber Physical Systems and Security for Smart Grid
Topic: Energy
Published: 9/1/2015
Author: Hamid Gharavi
Abstract: Although there are many important CPS systems in practice, one of the most complex applications is the Smart Grid whose function is to distribute reliable and efficient electric energy with a high degree of sustainability. While the Smart Grid aims t ...

5. Hitting the bounds of chemistry: Limits and tradeoffs for low-GWP refrigerants.
Topic: Energy
Published: 8/19/2015
Authors: Mark O McLinden, J. Steven Brown, Andrei F Kazakov, Piotr A Domanski
Abstract: We explore the possibilities for low-GWP refrigerants through two approaches. First, we explore the performance of hypothetical refrigerants to define the limits of what is allowed by thermodynamics. In the second approach, we apply property estimati ...

6. Aging of Polymeric Films used in Protective Glazing Systems
Topic: Energy
Published: 7/7/2015
Authors: Christopher C White, Donald Lee Hunston, Kar T. Tan
Abstract: The toughness of polymer and glass laminates or win-dow glazing, are used to protect buildings and occupants from shattered glass resulting from natural disasters (e.g., hurricanes, tornadoes, seismic events), and intentional events (e.g., robbery, t ...

7. Characterizing the three-dimensional structure of block copolymers via sequential infiltration synthesis and scanning transmission electron tomography
Topic: Energy
Published: 5/26/2015
Authors: Tamar Segal-Peretz, Jonathan P Winterstein, Manolis Doxastakis, Abelardo Ramirez-Hernandez, Mahua Biswas, Jiaxing Ren, Hyo Seon Suh, Seth B. Darling, James Alexander Liddle, Jeffrey Elam, Juan J. de Pablo, Nestor Zaluzec, Paul Nealey
Abstract: Understanding and controlling the three-dimensional structure of block copolymer (BCP) thin films is critical for utilizing these materials for sub-20 nm nanopatterning in semiconductor devices, as well as in membranes and solar cell applications. Co ...

Topic: Energy
Published: 5/13/2015
Authors: Christopher C White, Kar T. Tan, Donald Lee Hunston, Walter Eric Byrd
Abstract: Effective fire protection of steel can be fully realized when spray-applied fire resistive materials (SFRMs) are bonded sufficiently to structural steel during the event of fire. The adhesion mechanisms and characterization at elevated temperatures, ...

9. Findings and Recommendations the NIST Workshop on Alternative Fuels and Materials: Biocorrosion
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Topic: Energy
Published: 5/4/2015
Authors: Elisabeth Mansfield, Jeffrey W Sowards, Wendy J. Crookes-Goodson
Abstract: The Applied Chemicals and Materials Division of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) hosted a workshop to identify and prioritize testing and data challenges in the area of biocorrosion. Materials used to store and distribute al ...

10. Deployment of a Load Simulator in Simulating Residential Household Appliances
Topic: Energy
Published: 4/9/2015
Authors: Wenqi Guo, Tania Ullah
Abstract: Real-time electricity monitoring in residences is a growing market, with a number of systems being commercialized that provide feedback to occupants on electrical power and energy consumption. These systems are also useful for research purposes, by ...
