21. 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 ...

22. 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 ...

23. Application of Microwave Scanning Probes to Photovoltaic Materials
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/20/2010
Authors: Kristine A Bertness, John B. Schlager, Norman A Sanford, Atif A. Imtiaz, Thomas M Wallis, Joel C Weber, Pavel Kabos, Lorelle M. Mansfield
Abstract: We demonstrate that near field scanning microwave microscopy (NSMM) can be used to detect photoresponse in photovoltaic materials with potential for submicrometer resolution. In this approach, a radio-frequency scanning tunneling microscopy (RF-STM) ...

24. Application of Pressure-Controlled Advanced Distillation Curve Analysis: Virgin and Waste Oils
Topic: Energy
Published: 12/12/0012
Authors: Bret Windom, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: One of the most important properties measured for liquid fuels is the volatility, usually as expressed by the distillation curve. In previous work, we introduced the composition explicit or advanced distillation curve (ADC) metrology, which we have ...

25. Application of Thermal Gradients to Achieve Orientational Order in Block Copolymer Thin Films
Topic: Energy
Published: 8/18/2009
Authors: Nathaniel J Fredin, Brian Berry, Kevin G. Yager, Alamgir Karim, Sushil K. Satija, Deanna Pickel, Ronald Leland Jones
Abstract: The development of methods that permit control over the long-range order and orientation of microdomains in block copolymer (BCP) thin films for bottom-up approaches to nanoscale surface patterning is of great interest for many applications, includ ...

26. Application of the Advanced Distillation Curve Method to Fuels for Advanced Combustion Engine Gasolines
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/9/2015
Authors: Jessica Lynne Burger, Nico Schneider, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: Abstract: Incremental but fundamental changes are currently being made to fuel composition and combustion strategies in order to diversify feed-stocks, decrease pollution, and increase efficiency. This rapid increase in parameter space makes it diff ...

27. Application of the Advanced Distillation Curve Method to the Variability of Jet Fuels
Topic: Energy
Published: 5/24/2012
Authors: Jessica Lynne Burger, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: In this paper, we report the application of the advanced distillation-curve approach to the gas turbine fuels Jet-A, JP-8, and JP-5, in order to obtain information about the variability of these gas turbine fuels. The measurements of the temperatures ...

28. 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 ...

29. Beyond Standard Efficiency Ratings
Topic: Energy
Published: 5/6/2014
Author: David A Yashar
http://www.nist.gov/manuscript-publication-search.cfm?pub_id=915884

30. Biomass Particle Models with Realistic Morphology and Resolved Microstructure for Simulations of Intraparticle Transport Phenomena
Topic: Energy
Published: 12/9/2014
Authors: Peter Ciesielski, Michael F Crowley, M R Nimlos, Aric Warner Sanders, Gavin Wiggins, Bryon Donohoe
Abstract: Biomass exhibits a complex microstructure of directional pores that can vary substantially between species of origin. However, models of biomass particles employed in simulations of conversion processes typically employ over-simplified geometry such ...
