92. Gradient Nanofiber Scaffold Libraries for Screening Cell Response to Poly(e-caprolactone)-Calcium Phosphate Composites
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 3/1/2013
Authors: Carl George Simon Jr., Limin Sun, Laurence Chung Lung Chow, William Miles, Christopher K. Tison, Kaushik Chatterjee, Marian F Young, Vinoy Thomas, Murugan Ramalingam
Abstract: A 2-spinnerette approach has been developed for fabricating nanofiber scaffold gradients for use as 1) scaffold libraries for screening the effect of nanofiber properties on cell response and 2) templates for generating graded tissue interfaces. Alt ...

93. Modeling flat to slant fracture transition in CTOA specimens using the computational cell methodology
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 2/23/2013
Authors: Christopher N McCowan, Jacques Besson, Elizabeth S Drexler
Abstract: Macroscopicmode I ductile crack propagation in thin metallic sheets often starts in mode I as a flat triangle whose normal corresponds to the loading direction. After some limited extension, the crack becomes slanted and propagates under local mixed ...

94. Use of the Grand Canonical Transition-Matrix Monte Carlo Method to Model Gas Adsorption in Porous Materials
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 2/21/2013
Authors: Daniel W Siderius, Vincent K Shen
Abstract: We present grand canonical transition-matrix Monte Carlo (GC-TMMC) as an efficient method for simulating gas adsorption processes, with particular emphasis on subcritical gas adsorption in which capillary phase transitions are present. As in other a ...

95. Benefits and Costs of Energy Standard Adoption in New Commercial Buildings
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1147
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 2/6/2013
Author: Joshua D Kneifel

96. Markup Instructions for Extended Friction Ridge Features
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1151
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 2/5/2013
Authors: Melissa K Taylor, Will Chapman, Austin Hicklin, George Kiebuzinski, Peter Komarinski, John Mayer-Splain, Rachel Wallner
Abstract: This document provides instructions for latent print examiners in marking friction ridge features to maximize consistency among examiners. This document builds upon the Extended Feature Set (EFS) defined in American National Standards Institute/N ...

97. Spontaneous wrinkling in azlactone-based functional polymer thin films in 2d and 3d geometries for guided nanopatterning
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 2/4/2013
Authors: Muruganathan Ramanathan, Bradley S Lokitz, Jamie M Messman, Christopher M Stafford, S. Michael Kilbey
Abstract: We report a simple, one step process for developing wrinkling patterns in azlactone-based polymer thin films and brushes in 2D and 3D surfaces. The polymer used in this work wrinkles spontaneously upon deposition and solidification on a substrate wi ...

98. Correlating Chlorine-Induced Changes in Mechanical Properties to Performance in Polyamide-Based Thin Film Composite Membranes
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 1/26/2013
Authors: Junghyun Lee, Jun Y. Chung, Edwin P Chan, Christopher M Stafford
Abstract: Understanding the degradation of polyamide-based (PA) thin-film composite membranes by chlorine is imperative to develop chlorine-resistant membranes, an important characteristic that is needed to provide the desired long-term performance of membrane ...

99. Extended Feature Set Profile Specification
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1134
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 1/14/2013
Authors: Melissa K Taylor, Will Chapman, Austin Hicklin, George Kiebuzinski, John Mayer-Splain, Rachel Wallner, Peter Komarinski
Abstract: This specification defines Extended Feature Set (EFS) Profiles - sets of features to be used in latent friction ridge (fingerprint, palmprint or plantar) searches of automated friction ridge identification systems (AFIS). The EFS Profiles are des ...

100. Protective performance of environmentally stressed fabrics containing melamine fiber blends
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 1/12/2013
Authors: Shonali Nazare, Shaun M. Flynn, Rick D Davis, Joannie W Chin
Abstract: In this study, environmentally stressed OS fabrics containing melamine fiber blends were evaluated for thermal and mechanical properties that are critical to the protective performance of firefighter turnout gear. Environmental stress factors that a ...
