71. Design, Fabrication and Implementation of Thermally-Driven Outdoor Testing Devices for Building Joint Sealants
Topic: Energy
Published: 2/23/2011
Authors: Christopher C White, Kar Tean Tan, Emmett P O'Brien, Donald Lee Hunston, R. S. Williams
Abstract: The paper describes the development, implementation and testing of two thermally driven outdoor exposure instruments. These devices are unique in their ability to impose thermally driven strain while monitoring the resulting stress and displacement f ...

72. P-{rho}-T Behavior of Four Lean Synthetic Natural-Gas-Like Mixtures from 250 K to 450 K with Pressures to 37 MPa
Topic: Energy
Published: 2/18/2011
Author: Mark O McLinden
Abstract: The p-{rho}-T behaviors of four lean synthetic natural gas mixtures were measured along isotherms of 250 K, 350 K, and 450 K with pressures to 37 MPa with a two-sinker, magnetic-suspension densimeter. The gravimetrically prepared mixtures have seven ...

73. Analysis of Three Different Regression Models to Estimate the Ballistic Performance of New and Environmentally Conditioned Body Armor
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7760
Topic: Energy
Published: 2/14/2011
Authors: Diane Mauchant, Michael A Riley, Kirk D Rice, Amanda Lattam Forster, Dennis D Leber, Daniel Victor Samarov
Abstract: The performance standard for ballistic-resistant body armor published by the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), NIJ Standard 0101.06, recommends estimating the perforation performance of body armor by performing a statistical analysis on V50 bal ...

74. The Role of Service Life Prediction In Sustainability Determinations
Topic: Energy
Published: 2/14/2011
Authors: Christopher C White, Kar Tean Tan, Donald Lee Hunston
Abstract: Sustainability calculations are based on assumptions about the energy required to produce, transport place in-service items. A critical component of these calculations is the expected service life of the material, component or system. Estimates of t ...

75. Vertical Release of Hydrogen in a Partially Enclosed Compartment : Role of Wind and Buoyancy
Topic: Energy
Published: 1/25/2011
Authors: Kuldeep R Prasad, William M Pitts, Jiann C Yang
Abstract: The natural and wind driven mixing and dispersion of hydrogen released in an accidental manner in a partially enclosed compartment with two vents is investigated using theoretical tools. A simple analytical model is constructed to predict the entra ...

76. Reduced Nonlinearity Effect on the Electronic Measurement of the Boltzmann Constant
Topic: Energy
Published: 1/10/2011
Authors: Jifeng Qu, Samuel Paul Benz, Alessio Pollarolo, Horst Rogalla
Abstract: NIST has developed a quantum voltage noise source (QVNS) calibrated Johnson noise thermometer (JNT) to provide a new electronic measurement technique for determining the Boltzmann constant. Improvements in electronics and synthesized noise waveforms ...

77. Development of a Four-channel System for Johnson Noise Thermometry
Topic: Energy
Published: 12/30/2010
Authors: Alessio Pollarolo, Chiharu Urano, Paul David Dresselhaus, Jifeng Qu, Horst Rogalla, Samuel Paul Benz
Abstract: Long integration time is necessary to reach low uncertainty when measuring temperature through Johnson Noise Thermometry (JNT). The main goal of the NIST JNT experiment is to achieve a 6×10-6 relative uncertainty in the measurement of the water tripl ...

78. On Modeling the Peak Temperature on the Tool-Chip Interface during High-Speed Machining of AISI 1045 Steel
Topic: Energy
Published: 12/8/2010
Authors: Timothy J Burns, Steven P Mates, Richard L. Rhorer, Eric Paul Whitenton, Debasis Basak
Abstract: New experimental data on AISI 1045 steel from the NIST pulse-heated Kolsky Bar Laboratory is presented. The material is shown to exhibit a stiffer response to compressive loading when it has been rapidly preheated than it does when it has been heated ...

79. Multitone Waveform Synthesis with a Quantum Voltage Noise Source
Topic: Energy
Published: 11/9/2010
Authors: Samuel Paul Benz, Paul David Dresselhaus, Charles J Burroughs
Abstract: We have developed a quantum voltage noise source (QVNS) based on pulse-driven Josephson arrays and optimized its waveform synthesis for use with Johnson noise thermometry (JNT). The QVNS synthesizes multitone waveforms with equal amplitude harmonic t ...

80. A Machining and Measurement Process Planning Activity Model for Manufacturing System Interoperability Analysis
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7734
Topic: Energy
Published: 10/29/2010
Authors: Fiona Zhao, Frederick M Proctor, John A Horst
Abstract: Manufacturing systems consist of many activities. Each of these activities may include one or more software and hardware. In order to make these software and hardware systems interoperable, the data exchange and share among them must be seamless. How ...
