11. Composite thermophysical property characterization of hydrotreated renewable and Fischer-Tropsch synthetic fuels
Topic: Energy
Published: 3/16/2014
Authors: Peter Y. Hsieh, Jason A Widegren, Tara J Fortin, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: The rising cost of petroleum is driving the development of alternative hydrocarbon fuels for transportation. Hydrotreated renewable fuels and Fischer-Tropsch synthetic fuels are promising alternatives to conventional petroleum, and are chemically sim ...

13. Role of salt on adhesion of an epoxy/aluminium (oxide) interface in aqueous environments
Topic: Energy
Published: 2/16/2014
Authors: Christopher C White, Kar T. Tan, Donald Lee Hunston, Justin M Gorham, Aaron M Forster, Vogt D Bryan
Abstract: The durability of adhesive joints in hostile environments is a major area of concern in structural adhesive bonding. Therefore, understanding the mechanics and mechanisms of degradation of adhesive joints is a key factor for more extensive use in fut ...

14. Template synthesis of gold nanoparticles with an organic molecular cage
Topic: Energy
Published: 1/16/2014
Authors: Ryan McCaffrey, Hai Long, Yinghua Jin, Aric Warner Sanders, Wounjhang Park, Wei Zhang
Abstract: We report a novel strategy for the controlled synthesis of gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) with narrow size distribution (1.9 {plus or minus} 0.4 nm) through NP nucleation and growth inside the cavity of a well-defined three-dimensional, shape-persist ...

15. Applications of Surface Metrology in Toolmark Identification
Topic: Energy
Published: 1/8/2014
Authors: Xiaoyu A Zheng, Johannes A Soons, Theodore Vincent Vorburger, Jun-Feng Song, Thomas B Renegar, Robert Meryln Thompson
Abstract: Surface metrology is commonly used to characterize functional engineering surfaces. The technologies developed offer opportunities to improve forensic toolmark identification. In 2009, a report by the National Academies called into question, amon ...

16. Fast and Reliable Spectral Response Measurements of PV Cells Using Light Emitting Diodes
Topic: Energy
Published: 1/1/2014
Authors: Behrang H Hamadani, John F Roller, Brian P Dougherty, Howard W Yoon
Abstract: We present a measurement system for absolute differential spectral responsivity of solar cells based on high-powered LED arrays coupled to an optical light guide capable of large area illumination. Two different measurement techniques were developed ...

17. Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotube Layer-by-Layer Coatings With a Novel Trilayer Structure to Reduce Foam Flammability
Topic: Energy
Published: 10/29/2013
Authors: Rick D Davis, Yeon Seok Kim, Amanda A Cain, Jaime C. Grunlan
Abstract: The research presented here is the first report of fabricating multi-walled carbon nanotube (MWCNT) based thin coatings on polyurethane foam (PUF) using Layer-by-Layer assembly, and using MWCNTs to reduce the flammability of PUF. The (440.6 ± 47.1) ...

18. 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 ...

19. 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 ...
