82. System Dynamics Modeling of Corn Ethanol as a Bio Transportation Fuel in the United States
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7649
Topic: Energy
Published: 1/28/2010
Authors: Deogratias Kibira, Guodong Shao, Stephen - Nowak
Abstract: The production capacity of corn ethanol as a transportation fuel is experiencing rapid growth in the United States. The demand is driven by increased prices of gasoline, government mandates, incentives, and the need to achieve energy independence. Co ...

83. Density and Speed of Sound Measurements of Hexadecane
Topic: Energy
Published: 1/7/2010
Authors: Stephanie L Outcalt, Arno R Laesecke, Tara J Fortin
Abstract: The density and speed of sound of hexadecane have been measured using two instruments. Both instruments use the vibrating-tube method for measuring density. Ambient pressure (83 kPa) density and speed of sound measurements were carried out with a r ...

84. Enhanced Water Splitting Performance of Potassium-Adsorbed Titania Nanotube Arrays
Topic: Energy
Published: 12/7/2009
Authors: Christiaan Richter, Cherno Jaye, Eugen Panaitescu, Daniel A Fischer, Laura H. Lewis, Ronald J. Willey, Latika Menon
Abstract: It is demonstrated that vertically-aligned titania nanotube planar arrays fabricated by electrochemical anodization using standard potassium-containing electrolytes invariably contain a significant amount of surface-adsorbed potassium ions that enhan ...

85. Measuring the Structure of Epitaxially Assembled Block Copolymer Domains with Soft X-ray Diffraction
Topic: Energy
Published: 11/30/2009
Authors: Gila Stein, James Alexander Liddle, Andrew Aquila, Eric M Gullikson
Abstract: The size, shape, and roughness of poly(styrene-b-methyl methacrylate) block copolymer domains assembled on an epitaxial template are characterized with soft x-ray diffraction. The domain size and shape are deformed when the dimensions of the epitax ...

87. Interoperability and the DMIS experience
Topic: Energy
Published: 10/30/2009
Author: John A Horst
Abstract: Because they enable true interoperability, information exchange standards can help manufacturers reduce cost and improve product quality, but only if the standards are developed and implemented correctly. We will answer questions manufacturers and su ...

88. Mapping Heterogeneity in NanoTiO2/Polymer Coatings Using Confocal Microscopy and Depth Sensing Indentation
Topic: Energy
Published: 10/14/2009
Author: Li Piin Sung
Abstract: The purpose of this study is to develop relevant metrology to measure the appropriate structure-property relationship at a proper length scale to understand the interplay between nanoparticle and polymeric matrix. In this paper, we present the prelim ...

89. Effect of RP-1 Compositional Variability on Thermophysical Properties
Topic: Energy
Published: 10/6/2009
Authors: Marcia L Huber, Eric W Lemmon, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: We compare experimental and predicted thermophysical properties of two samples of rocket propellant RP-1 obtained from different batches of RP-1 that exhibit compositional variations. One sample is atypical, due to a high olefin content. The effect o ...

90. Thermal Decomposition Kinetics of Kerosene-based Rocket Propellants. 1. Comparison of RP-1 and RP-2
Topic: Energy
Published: 9/11/2009
Authors: Jason A Widegren, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: The decomposition kinetics of the kerosene-based rocket propellants RP-1 and RP-2 was studied. For RP-2, decomposition reactions were performed at 375, 400, 425, and 450 {degree}C. For RP-1, decomposition reactions were only performed at 450 {degree} ...
