281. Design and Modeling of Thermally Actuated MEMS Nanopositioners
Topic: Energy
Published: 11/11/2005
Authors: Sebastien Bergna, Jason John Gorman, Nicholas G Dagalakis
Abstract: Several micro-scale nanopositioning mechanisms, or MEMS nanopositioners, have been developed for application in nanotechnology and optical sensors. In this paper, the design and modeling of these devices is presented along with initial experimental r ...

282. Moisture Diffusion and Temperature History Models for Thin Organic Coatings Exposed to Ambient Air
Topic: Energy
Published: 9/20/2005
Authors: William C. Thomas, Christopher C White, Mark R VanLandingham
Abstract: Baseline models are developed for predicting moisture concentration and temperature in extremely thin polymeric films bonded to impermeable substrate materials. These simplified models are based on analytical rather than numerical solutions to circum ...

283. Towards AGV Safety and Navigation Advancement - Obstacle Detection Using a TOF Range Camera*
Topic: Energy
Published: 7/20/2005
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Tsai Hong Hong, Rajmohan Madhavan
Abstract: The performance evaluation of an obstacle detection and segmentation algorithm for Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) navigation using a 3D real-time range camera is the subject of this paper. Our approach has been tested successfully on British safety s ...

284. Knowledge Representation and Decision Making for Mobile Robots
Topic: Energy
Published: 7/13/2005
Authors: Elena R Messina, Stephen B. Balakirsky
Abstract: Knowledge is central to a mobile robot's ability to carry out its missions and adapt to changes in the environment it is traversing. The knowledge subsystem must support acquisition of information from external sources, maintain prior knowledge, in ...

285. Viscoelastic Characterization of Polymers Using Instrumented Indentation I. Quasi-static Testing
Topic: Energy
Published: 7/13/2005
Authors: Mark R VanLandingham, N-K Chang, P L Drzal, Christopher C White, S-H Chang
Abstract: The use of instrumented indentation to characterize the mechanical response of polymeric materials was studied. A model based on contact between a rigid probe and a linear viscoelastic material was used to calculate values for creep compliance and s ...

286. Viscoelastic Characterization of Polymers Using Instrumented Indentation II. Dynamic Testing
Topic: Energy
Published: 7/13/2005
Authors: Christopher C White, Mark R VanLandingham, P L Drzal, N-K Chang, S-H Chang
Abstract: Dynamic nanoindentation was preformed on a cured epoxy, poly(methyl methacrylate), and poly(dimethyl siloxane) or PDMS. These samples, two glassy polymers and a rubbery material are used to illustrate the agreement between classical rheological instr ...

287. HiCASS Target Tracking Sensor Study
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7220
Topic: Energy
Published: 5/20/2005
Author: Richard J Norcross
Abstract: The High Capacity Alongside Sea base Sustainment (HiCASS) program intends to generate substantial improvements in skin-to-skin at-sea replenishment. HiCASS requires real-time tracking and dynamic load position sensing.

289. Influence of Experimental Set-Up and Plastic Deformation on the Shaft-Loaded Blister Test
Topic: Energy
Published: 5/11/2005
Authors: S Goldfarb, E P O'Brien, Christopher C White
Abstract: The effect of film thickness, substrate hole diameter, and shaft tip diameter on the applied strain energy release rate, G, of a thin film was measured using the shaft-loaded blister test. Test specimens consisted of plies of Kapton pressure sensiti ...

290. Hierarchical Control and Performance Evaluation of Multi-Vehicle Autonomous Systems
Topic: Energy
Published: 5/4/2005
Authors: Stephen B. Balakirsky, Christopher J. Scrapper Jr, Elena R Messina
Abstract: This paper will describe how the Mobility Open Architecture Tools and Simulation (MOAST) framework can facilitate performance evaluations of RCS compliant multi-vehicle autonomous systems. This framework provides an environment that allows for simula ...
