411. The Pilot Environmental Specimen Bank Program
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 10/1/1984
Authors: Stephen A Wise, Rolf Louis Zeisler

412. The Precision Alignment of a Kolsky Bar Apparatus
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 1/1/2002
Authors: Timothy J Burns, Brian S. Dutterer, Michael Kennedy, Matthew A. Davies, Richard L. Rhorer
Abstract: The modeling of machining processes is often limited by the availability of material data appropriate for the high strain rates and rapid heating associated with the metal cutting process. A new NIST facility - the pulse heated Kolsky bar apparatus ...

413. The Role of Service Life Prediction In Sustainability Determinations
Topic: Environment/Climate
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 ...

414. The Solubility Behavior of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons in Aqueous Systems
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 12/1/1980
Author: Willie E May

415. The Stability of Low Radial Immersion Milling
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 1/1/2000
Authors: Matthew A. Davies, Jon Robert Pratt, Brian S. Dutterer, Timothy J Burns
Abstract: Traditional regenerative stability theory predicts a set of spindle speeds with locally optimum stability at integer fractions of the natural frequency of the most flexible mode of the system.  The assumptions of this theory become invalid for h ...

416. The Surprising Affects of Strain on the Long Term Rheology of Filled Viscoelastic Solids (Building Joint Sealant)
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 5/7/2008
Authors: Donald Lee Hunston, Kar T. Tan, Christopher C White
Abstract: Filled viscoelastic solids, have been used for the last 40 years as building sealants to separate indoor from outdoor environments.  The most important property of the sealant is the ability to respond to imposed strain while maintaining the cri ...

417. The development and certification of Standard Reference Materials (SRMs) to assess and ensure accurate measurement of Pb in the environment
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 8/1/2001
Authors: John D. Fassett, Bruce S MacDonald

418. The dynamics of chip formation in machining
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 1/1/1997
Authors: Matthew A. Davies, Christopher J. Evans, Timothy J Burns
Abstract: In this paper, we provide experimental, numerical and analytical evidence suggesting that the onset of segmented chip formation is the result of a Hopf bifurcation in the material flow. We modify the conventional one-dimensional model for orthogonal ...

419. The winter time South Pole tropospheric water vapor column: Comparisons of radiosonde and recent terahertz radiometry, use of the saturated column as a proxy measurement; and inference of decadal trends
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 7/7/2012
Authors: Richard Addison Chamberlin, Erich N Grossman
Abstract: We use a fifty year record of winter time radiosonde observations at the South Pole to estimate the precipitable water vapor column (PWV) over the entire period. Humidity data from older radiosondes is of limited reliability; however, we think an est ...

420. Thermal Imaging of Metals in a Kolsky-Bar Apparatus
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 1/1/2003
Authors: Eric Paul Whitenton, Richard L. Rhorer, Howard W Yoon, D Basak, Richard Joel Fields, Lyle E Levine, Timothy J Burns
Abstract: For materials testing at elevated temperatures, we describe the design and the development of a resistively heated Kolsky-bar apparatus. The temperature of the sample is determined by non-contact thermometry and the spatial temperature gradients in t ...
