22. Analyzing a Co-Polymer Aramid Fiber for Use in Soft Body Armor
Topic: Energy
Published: 10/25/2013
Authors: Walter G McDonough, Jae Hyun Kim, Nathanael A Heckert, Amanda Lattam Forster, Scott A Wight, Joy P Dunkers, Gale Antrus Holmes
Abstract: Since the well-publicized failure of body armor used by a police officer, it has become imperative that the long-term properties and performance of new fibers being considered for use be understood. The range of interest is from the molecular proper ...

23. Statistical Prediction of Sealant Modulus Change due to Outdoor Weathering
Topic: Energy
Published: 10/17/2013
Authors: Christopher C White, Kar T. Tan, Donald Lee Hunston, Adam L Pintar, James J Filliben
Abstract: Recently a statistically based model has been created to predict the change in modulus for a sealant exposed to outdoor weathering. The underlying high precision data supporting this model was obtained using the NIST SPHERE (Simulated Photo degrada ...

24. Validation Tests for the Congruent Matching Cells (CMC) Method Using Cartridge Cases Fired With Consecutively Manufactured Pistol Slides
Topic: Energy
Published: 10/17/2013
Authors: Wei Chu, Mingsi Tong, Jun-Feng Song
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has developed the NIST Ballistics Identification System (NBIS) based on three-dimensional (3D) topography measurements on correlation cells [1]. The Congruent Matching Cells (CMC) method is u ...

25. Effect of Concentration on R134a/Al2O3 Nanolubricant Mixture Boiling on a Reentrant Cavity Surface with Extensive Measurement and Analysis Details
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1813
Topic: Energy
Published: 9/25/2013
Author: Mark A Kedzierski
Abstract: This paper quantifies the influence of Al2O3 nanoparticles on the pool boiling performance of R134a/polyolester mixtures on a Turbo-BII-HP boiling surface. Nanolubricants with 10 nm diameter Al2O3 nanoparticles of various volume fractions (1.6 %, 2. ...

28. Johnson-noise thermometry based on a quantized-voltage noise source at NIST
Topic: Energy
Published: 9/11/2013
Authors: Alessio Pollarolo, Tae H. Jeong, Samuel Paul Benz, Paul David Dresselhaus, Horst Rogalla, Weston Leo Tew
Abstract: Johnson Noise Thermometry is an electronic approach to measuring temperature. For several years, NIST has been developing a switching-correlator-type Johnson-noise thermometer that uses a quantized voltage noise source as an accurate voltage referenc ...

29. Time-resolved surface infrared spectroscopy during atomic layer deposition
Topic: Energy
Published: 9/10/2013
Authors: Brent A Sperling, John J. Hoang, William Andrew Kimes, James E Maslar
Abstract: This work presents a novel method for obtaining surface infrared spectra with sub-second time resolution during atomic layer deposition (ALD). Using a rapid-scan Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectrometer, we obtain a series of interferograms ( ...

30. Theory and Algorithms for Weighted Total Least-Squares Fitting of Lines, Planes, and Parallel Planes to Support Tolerancing Standards
Topic: Energy
Published: 8/16/2013
Authors: Craig M Shakarji, Vijay Srinivasan
Abstract: We present the theory and algorithms for fitting a line, a plane, two parallel planes (corresponding to a slot or a slab) or many parallel planes in a total (orthogonal) least-squares sense to coordinate data that is weighted. Each of these problems ...
