1. Assessment of Crude Oil and a Dispersant in a Simulated Spartina alterniflora Salt Marsh Ecosystem
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 12/1/2014
Authors: P Key, K Chung, C Cooksey, DeLorenzo M, M Fulton, D Greenfield, T Greig, J Hylund, Bryant C Nelson, Varun Patel, P Pennington, Elijah J Petersen, E Wirth
Abstract: NOAA‰s Environmental Sensitivity Index (ESI) lists saltmarshes along the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts as the most vulnerable habitat to oil spills. As a result of the Deepwater Horizon offshore drilling rig accident, more that 200 million gallons of cr ...

2. A pilot interlaboratory comparison of protocols that simulate aging of nanocomposites and detect released fragments
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 10/1/2014
Authors: Wendel Wohlleben, Deborah L Stanley, Justin M Gorham, Li Piin Sung, Tinh Nguyen
Abstract: The safe use of nanocomposites depends, in part, on a good understanding of the fate of nanofillers throughout the nanocomposite,s lifecycle. Various modifications of ISO weathering protocols have been proposed to assess what is released and at which ...

3. Dielectric characterization by microwave cavity perturbation corrected for non-uniform fields
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 7/23/2014
Authors: Nathan Daniel Orloff, Jan Obrzut, Christian John Long, Thomas Fung Lam, James C Booth, David R Novotny, James Alexander Liddle, Pavel Kabos
Abstract: The non-uniform fields that occur due to the slot in the cavity through which the sample is inserted and those due to the sample geometry itself decrease the accuracy of dielectric characterization by cavity perturbation at microwave frequencies. ...

4. Applicability of Existing Materials Testing Standards for Additive Manufacturing Materials
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 8005
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 7/7/2014
Authors: John A. Slotwinski, Shawn P Moylan
Abstract: This NIST Internal Report (NISTIR) is the third in a series of reports from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Engineering Laboratory's project on Additive Manufacturing Materials. This project provides the measurement science ...

5. Standards Related to Prognostics and Health Management (PHM) for Manufacturing
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 8012
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 7/7/2014
Authors: Gregory W Vogl, Brian A Weiss, M. Alkan Donmez
Abstract: Prognostics and health management (PHM) systems are utilized to reduce burdensome maintenance tasks of monitored products or processes through diagnostics and prognostics, which provide actionable information that support decision-making for improved ...

6. Effects of Temperature on Surface Accumulation and Release of Silica Nanoparticles in an Epoxy Nanocoating Exposed to UV Radiation
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 6/16/2014
Authors: Chun-Chieh Tien, Ching-Hsuan Chang, Bernard Hao-Chih Liu, Deborah L Stanley, Savelas A Rabb, Lee Lijian Yu, Tinh Nguyen, Li Piin Sung
Abstract: Polymer nanocoatings are increasingly used outdoors and in harsh environments. However, because most common polymers degraded by the weathering elements, nanoparticles in polymer nanocoatings may be released into the environments. Such nanoparticle r ...

7. Infrared Thermography of the Chip-Tool Interface through Transparent Cutting Tools
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 6/2/2014
Authors: Thejas T. Menon, Viswanathan Madhavan
Abstract: In-situ observation of the chip-tool interface has been carried out while machining Ti-6Al-4V. A low-noise camera sensitive to visible and near infrared (IR) radiation has been used to record the radiation emitted by the interface, and relatively lon ...

8. An Uncertainty Analysis of Mean Flow Velocity Measurements Used to Quantify Emissions from Stationary Sources
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 5/20/2014
Authors: Rodney A Bryant, Olatunde B. Sanni, Elizabeth F Moore, Matthew F Bundy, Aaron N Johnson
Abstract: Point velocity measurements conducted by traversing a pitot tube across the cross section of a flow conduit continues to be the standard practice for evaluating the accuracy of continuous flow monitoring devices. Such velocity traverses were condu ...

9. Assessment of Guidelines for Conducting Round Robin Studies in Additive Manufacturing
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 4/16/2014
Authors: Shawn P Moylan, John A. Slotwinski
Abstract: The uniqueness of AM makes it necessary to develop specific guidance on conducting round robin studies. The existing standards on round robin studies for measurement methods provide an excellent starting point for guidance on conducting AM round rob ...

10. Metals-Based Additive Manufacturing: Metrology Needs and Standardization Efforts
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 4/16/2014
Authors: John A. Slotwinski, Shawn P Moylan
Abstract: In recent years additive manufacturing (AM) has received significant visibility, both in the popular media as well as in scientific journals, and niche successes have contributed to the fervor that makes up an inspiring future vision for additive man ...
