51. A test method for monitoring changes during durability tests on building joint sealants
Topic: Energy
Published: 2/8/2012
Authors: Christopher C White, Donald Lee Hunston, Kar Tean Tan
Abstract: The durability of building joint sealants is generally assessed using a descriptive methodology involving visual inspection for defects. It is widely known that this methodology has many inherent limitations and is only qualitative in nature. A new ...

52. The Effects of Folding on High Strength Fibers Used in Soft Body Armor
Topic: Energy
Published: 1/23/2012
Authors: Haruki Kobayashi, Walter G McDonough, Joy P Dunkers, Jae Hyun Kim, Hae-Jeong Lee, Scott A Wight, Amanda Lattam Forster, Kirk D Rice, Gale Antrus Holmes
Abstract: Poly (p-phenylene benzobisoxazole) (PBO) fibers have been used in soft body armor (SBA) because of their high mechanical strength. However, there was an unexpected failure of a first responder‰s SBA which was composed of PBO fiber that was in service ...

53. Distributed Application of the Traffic Scheduling Technique for Smart Grid Advanced Metering Applications Using Multi-Gate Mesh Networks
Topic: Energy
Published: 12/1/2011
Author: Hamid Gharavi
Abstract: In this paper, we present a multi-gate mesh network architecture that has been developed to ensure high performance and reliability under emergency conditions when a system expects to receive power outage notifications and exchanges. In order to hand ...

54. Towards realization of a large-area, LED-based solar simulator
Topic: Energy
Published: 11/27/2011
Authors: Behrang H Hamadani, Kangbin Chua, John F Roller, Howard W Yoon, Brian P Dougherty
Abstract: LED-based solar simulators have shown great promise as alternative light sources for indoor testing of PV cells as compared to their traditional counterparts. However, large-area uniform illumination more suitable for larger cells and module measurem ...

55. Demand Response and Standards: Enabling a New Role for Buildings in the Smart Grid
Topic: Energy
Published: 11/1/2011
Author: David G Holmberg
Abstract: The role of buildings in the electric grid is steadily being transformed to that of active participant in managing the grid, serving as a key player in maintaining grid reliability. The necessity for this transformation is based on three factors: gri ...

56. Service Life Prediction for Sealants
Topic: Energy
Published: 9/29/2011
Authors: Christopher C White, Donald Lee Hunston, Kar Tean Tan, James J Filliben
Abstract: Previous industry consensus postulated that four elements of the weather: Temperature, Humidity, Ultraviolet Radiation, and Mechanical loading were responsible for the majority of the changes observed in sealants exposed to outdoor weathering. The N ...

59. Development of a Seebeck Coefficient Standard Reference Material (SRM),
Topic: Energy
Published: 8/1/2011
Authors: Nathan Lowhorn, Winnie K Wong-Ng, John Lu, Joshua Brooks Martin, Martin L Green, John E Bonevich, Evan L. Thomas, Neil Dilley, Jeff Sharp
Abstract: We have successfully developed a Seebeck coefficient Standard Reference Material (SRM,), Bi2Te3, that is essential for interlaboratory data comparison and for instrument calibration. Certification measurements were performed using a differential stea ...

60. The Effect of Folding on the Mechanical Properties and Internal Structures of Fibers Used in Ballistic Applications
Topic: Energy
Published: 7/18/2011
Authors: Haruki Kobayashi, Walter G McDonough, Hae-Jeong Lee, Jae Hyun Kim, Amanda Lattam Forster, Kirk D Rice, Gale Antrus Holmes
Abstract: The failure of a first responder‰s soft body armor (SBA) composed of poly (p-phenylene benzobisoxazole) (PBO) fibers has prompted researchers to assess the long-term durability and effectiveness of current and future SBA products. Based on existing d ...
