51. Advanced Distillation Curve Analysis of Marine Diesel Fuel
Topic: Energy
Published: 1/17/2013
Authors: Peter Y. Hsieh, Kathryn Rosemary Abel, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: Ocean-going ships burn heavy fuel oil. The combustion of heavy fuel oil in marine diesel engines emits nitrogen oxides, sulfur oxides, and particulates into the air. Growing public concern over air quality has led to increased scrutiny of heavy fue ...

52. Monitoring methane in the boundary layer using a network of instruments at tall towers in the northeastern US
Topic: Energy
Published: 12/24/2012
Authors: Kuldeep R Prasad, Elena Novakovskaia
Abstract: Methane is one of the major greenhouse gases and in recent years more efforts have been undertaken to estimate its emissions at local and regional scales utilizing new observing systems. During 2012, Earth Networks Inc. deployed a dense GHG obse ...

53. Standard Reference Materials: SRM 1453, Expanded Polystyrene Board, for Thermal Conductivity from 281 K to 313 K
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 260-175
Topic: Energy
Published: 12/21/2012
Authors: Robert R Zarr, Adam L Pintar
Abstract: Thermal conductivity measurements at and near room temperature are presented as the basis for certified values of thermal conductivity of SRM 1453, Expanded Polystyrene Board. The measurements have been conducted in accordance with a randomized ...

54. Modeling Line Edge Roughness in Templated, Lamellar Block Copolymer Systems
Topic: Energy
Published: 12/11/2012
Authors: Paul N. Patrone, Gregg M. Gallatin
Abstract: Block copolymers offer an appealing alternative to current lithographic techniques with re- gard to fabrication of next generation microprocessors. However, if copolymers are to be useful on an industrial manufacturing scale, they must meet or exce ...

55. A Dual Mode Evolutionary Algorithm Approach for Designing Optimized Finned-Tube Heat Exchangers
Topic: Energy
Published: 9/27/2012
Authors: David A Yashar, Piotr A Domanski, Janusz Wojusiak, Kenneth Kaufman
Abstract: The efficiency of a vapor compression system is strongly influenced by the performance of the finned-tube heat exchangers it employs. Heat exchanger performance is strongly influenced by the refrigerant circuitry, i.e., the connection sequence of th ...

56. X-Ray Scattering Study on the Damage in Fibers Used in Soft Body Armor After Folding
Topic: Energy
Published: 9/21/2012
Authors: Haruki Kobayashi, Walter G McDonough, Joy P Dunkers, Scott A Wight, Hae-Jeong Lee, Jae Hyun Kim, Amanda Lattam Forster, Kirk D Rice, Gale Antrus Holmes

57. Commissioning Cost-Benefit and Persistence of Savings: A Report on Cost-Effective Commissioning of Existing and Low Energy Buildings
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1727
Topic: Energy
Published: 9/17/2012
Authors: Hannah Friedman, Marti Frank, David Claridge, Kristin Heinemeier, Kim Crossman, Eliot Crowe, Cory Toole, Natascha Sylvia Milesi-Ferretti, Daniel Choniere
Abstract: Commissioning of new and existing buildings has been shown to reduce energy usage and can also produce non-energy related benefits such as improved occupant comfort. When compared with other initiatives such as installation of high efficiency equ ...

58. Signal Processing Techniques for Smart Grid: Scanning the Issue
Topic: Energy
Published: 9/2/2012
Author: Hamid Gharavi
Abstract: This is an editorial article for a special issue on Smart Grid. The main emphasis of this issue is the technical challenges of the Smart Grid from a signal processing perspective. Therefore, the selected articles aim at articulating signal processing ...

59. Confocal Microscopy Analysis of Breech Face Marks on Fired Cartridge Cases from Ten Consecutively Manufactured Pistol Slides
Topic: Energy
Published: 7/1/2012
Authors: Xiaoyu A Zheng, Robert Meryln Thompson, Todd Weller
Abstract: Ten (10) pistol slides with consecutively manufactured breech faces, were obtained from Sturm, Ruger Co, Inc. A total of nine (9) test fires from each pistol, for a total of ninety (90) test fired cartridge cases, were compared using comparison micr ...

60. Johnson Noise Thermometry Measurement of the Boltzmann Constant with a 200 Ohm Sense Resistor
Topic: Energy
Published: 7/1/2012
Authors: Alessio Pollarolo, Tae H. Jeong, Samuel Paul Benz, Horst Rogalla
Abstract: In 2010 NIST measured the Boltzmann constant k by use of an electronic technique that measured the Johnson noise of a 100 Ohm resistor at the triple point of water (TPW). The NIST Johnson noise thermometry (JNT) system used as a reference a voltage ...
