351. The Effects of Folding on High Strength Fibers Used in Soft Body Armor
Topic: Energy
Published: 1/23/2012
Authors: Haruki Kobayashi, Walter G McDonough, Joy P Dunkers, Jae Hyun Kim, Hae-Jeong Lee, Scott A Wight, Amanda Lattam Forster, Kirk D Rice, Gale Antrus Holmes
Abstract: Poly (p-phenylene benzobisoxazole) (PBO) fibers have been used in soft body armor (SBA) because of their high mechanical strength. However, there was an unexpected failure of a first responder‰s SBA which was composed of PBO fiber that was in service ...

352. The Evolution of Performance Metrics in the RoboCup Rescue Virtual Robot Competition
Topic: Energy
Published: 12/28/2007
Authors: Stephen B. Balakirsky, Christopher J. Scrapper Jr, S Carpin
Abstract: This paper presents an overview of the 2007 RoboCup Rescue Virtual Robot Competition and the performance metrics that were used to judge the competition. For this competition, great effort was placed in bringing together researchers with diverse inte ...

353. The Fallacy of Monitoring Surge Voltages: SPDs and PCs Galore
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/1/1999
Authors: A. Mansoor, K. O. Phipps, Francois D. Martzloff
Abstract: To support the recommendation of shifting transient monitoring from voltage surges to current surges, the paper presents experimental results as well as numerical modeling results demonstrating two mechanisms causing an apparent decrease of surge act ...

354. The Origin of Critical Relative Humidity in Adhesion
Topic: Energy
Published: 5/11/2009
Authors: Christopher C White, Kar T. Tan, Bryan D. Vogt, Donald Lee Hunston
Abstract: Water is ubiquitous in the atmosphere. Unfortunately, adhesive bonding is susceptible to the environmental attack of water leading to significant depreciation in joint strength and subsequently to premature failures [1-6]. This susceptibility of bond ...

355. The Role of Service Life Prediction In Sustainability Determinations
Topic: Energy
Published: 2/14/2011
Authors: Christopher C White, Kar T. 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 ...

358. Theory and Algorithms for Weighted Total Least-Squares Fitting of Lines, Planes, and Parallel Planes to Support Tolerancing Standards
Topic: Energy
Published: 8/16/2013
Authors: Craig M Shakarji, Vijay Srinivasan
Abstract: We present the theory and algorithms for fitting a line, a plane, two parallel planes (corresponding to a slot or a slab) or many parallel planes in a total (orthogonal) least-squares sense to coordinate data that is weighted. Each of these problems ...

359. 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} ...

360. Thermal Decomposition Kinetics of Kerosene-based Rocket Propellants. 2. RP-2 with Three Additives
Topic: Energy
Published: 9/9/2009
Authors: Jason A Widegren, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: The thermal decomposition of RP-2 with three potential stabilizing additives was investigated. The additives were 1,2,3,4-tetrahydroquinoline (THQ), 1,2,3,4-tetrahydronaphthalene (tetralin) and the additive package that is used to make JP-8+100 (here ...
