21. Frequency-stabilized cavity ring-down spectrometer for high-sensitivity measurements of water vapor concentration
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 8/12/2006
Authors: Joseph Terence Hodges, D Lisak
Abstract: We present a portable spectrometer that uses the frequency-stabilized cavity ring-down spectroscopy technique to realize high-precision measurements of trace water vapor concentration. Measuring one of the strongest rovibrational transitions in the 1 ...

22. Persistent Organic Pollutants in Alaska Ringed Seals (Phoca hispida) and Walrus (Odobenus rosmarus) Blubber From the National Biomonitoring Specimen Bank Archive
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 8/1/2006
Authors: John R Kucklick, M M Krahn, Paul R Becker, Barbara J. Porter, Michele M Schantz, Geoffrey S York, T M O'Hara, Stephen A Wise
Abstract: Since 1987, the Alaska Marine Mammal Tissue Archival Project (AMMTAP) has collected tissues from 18 marine mammals species. Specimens are archived in the National Institute of Standards and Technology s National Biomonitoring Specimen Bank (NIST-NBS ...

23. Determination of Parametric Uncertainties for Regression-Based Modeling of Turning Operations
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 5/30/2006
Authors: Robert W Ivester, Laurent Deshayes, Michael L McGlauflin, Y Marcon
Abstract: Uncertainty associated with model-based predictions of machining performance plays an important role in the application of machining modeling. This paper presents a technique for model development and characterization of the uncertainty in the resul ...

24. Towards an Information Processing Representation for Dynamic Process Optimization in Smart Machining Systems
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 5/1/2006
Authors: Laurent Deshayes, Lawrence A Welsch, Aurelie Vacher, M Alkan Donmez
Abstract: Smart Machining Systems (SMS) are an important part of today''s manufacturing companies.  SMS include the use of diverse technologies that once integrated together, provide the capabilities of: producing the first and every product corre ...

25. Ionizing Radiation-Induced Destruction of Benzene and Dienes in Aqueous Media
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 3/28/2006
Authors: M I Al-Sheikhly, Dianne L Poster, Jung-Chul An, Pedatsur Neta, Joseph Silverman, Robert Elliott Huie
Abstract: Pulse radiolysis with spectrophotometric and conductometric detection was utilized to study the formation and reactions of radicals from benzene and dienes in aqueous solutions. The benzene OH adduct, C6H6OH, reacts with O2 (k = 3 x 108 L mol-1 s-1) ...

26. Dependence of Metal Cutting Simulations on the Johnson-Cook Model Thermal Softening Parameter
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 1/1/2006
Authors: A Deshpande, V Madhavan, V Pednekar, A H Adibi-Sedeh, Robert W Ivester
Abstract: The accuracy of the constitutive model is an important contributor towards the accuracy of finite element analyses of different manufacturing processes.  Due to the presence of high values of strain, strain rate and temperature in machining, the ...

27. Effects of Organochlorine Contaminants on Loggerhead Sea Turtle Immunity: Comparison of a Correlative Field Study and In Vitro Exposure Experiments
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 1/1/2006
Authors: Jennifer M Lynch, P.D. McClellan-Green, John R Kucklick, D.E. Keil, Margie Peden-Adams

28. High Rate Tensile Strength Measurements of Frangible Bullets Using a Kolsky Bar
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 1/1/2006
Authors: S P Mates, Richard L. Rhorer, S Banovic, Eric Paul Whitenton, Richard Joel Fields
Abstract: The tensile strength of frangible bullets is measured by a high rate diametral compression test (DCT) performed with a Kolsky Bar. Frangible bullets, meant to disintegrate on impact by brittle failure, also exhibit significant plasticity in compressi ...

29. Optimizing Machining Processes for Precision: An Example using calculated cutting forces
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 1/1/2006
Author: Richard L. Rhorer
Abstract: A common machining problem is to find the maximum material rate possible by adjusting the cutting speed, width of cut, and depth of cut for a given process. This maximum is found within given boundaries, or constraints, such as power and speed limit ...

30. Mitogen-induced Lymphocyte Proliferation in Loggerhead Sea Turtles: Comparison of Methods and Effects of Gender, Plasma Testosterone Concentration, and Body Condition on Immunity
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 12/1/2005
Authors: Jennifer M Lynch, P.D. McClellan-Green, A.M. Lee, M.D. Arendt, P.P. Maier, A.L Sefars, J.D. Whitaker, D.E. Keil, Margie Peden-Adams
