91. A review of fire blocking technologies for soft furnishings
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 4/23/2012
Authors: Shonali Nazare, Rick D Davis
Abstract: Fire barrier fabrics are expected to play an increasingly important role in complying with existing and proposed soft furnishing flammability regulations. The number of commercial fire blocking technologies is large in order to accommodate the vast ...

92. Nano-Apatitic Composite Scaffolds for Stem Cell Delivery and Bone Tissue Engineering
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 4/15/2012
Authors: Hockin H. K. Xu, Carl George Simon Jr
Abstract: The need for bone defect repair and regeneration arises from trauma, disease, congenital deformity, and tumor resection. Bone fracture occurs to seven million people each year in the United States, and musculoskeletal conditions cost $215 billion ann ...

93. Ground Truth for Evaluating 6 Degrees of Freedom Pose Estimation Systems
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 3/28/2012
Authors: Jeremy A Marvel, Joseph A Falco, Tsai Hong Hong
Abstract: Systems developed to estimate poses of objects in 6 degrees of freedom (6DOF) Cartesian space (X, Y, and Z coordinates plus roll, pitch, and yaw) are reliant on the vendors' own processes to determine performance and measurement accuracy. These pract ...

94. Flexible polyurethane foam with well characterized and reproducible smoldering
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 3/24/2012
Authors: Mauro Zammarano, Szabolcs Matko, Rick D Davis, Roland H. Kraemer
Abstract: Smoldering is a self-sustaining heterogeneous oxidation reaction that induces a slow, low temperature, flameless combustion.1 Flexible polyurethane foams (PUF) are particularly prone to smoldering due to their high air permeability and low density. I ...

95. 2011 Solutions in Perception Challenge Performance Metrics and Results
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 3/22/2012
Authors: Jeremy A Marvel, Tsai Hong Hong, Elena R Messina
Abstract: The 2011 Solutions in Perception Challenge (SPC) presented an international collection of teams with the opportunity to develop algorithms that could positively identify and accurately locate in space an arbitrary collection of artifacts. Researchers ...

96. An Overview of Robot-Sensor Calibration Methods for Evaluation of Perception Systems
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 3/22/2012
Authors: Mili Indra Shah, Roger D. Eastman, Tsai Hong Hong
Abstract: In this paper, an overview of methods that solve the robot-sensor calibration problem of the forms AX = XB and AX = YB is given. Each form will be split into three solutions: separable closed-form solutions, simultaneous closed- form solutions, and i ...

97. Measuring domain sizes and compositional heterogeneities in P3HT-PCBM bulk heterojunction thin films with 1H spin diffusion NMR spectroscopy
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 3/21/2012
Authors: Ryan C Nieuwendaal, Hyun Wook Ro, David Germack, Regis J Kline, Calvin Chan, Amit Kumar Agrawal, David J Gundlach, David Lloyd VanderHart, Dean M DeLongchamp
Abstract: In this manuscript we show that 1H spin diffusion NMR is a valuable method for estimating the domain sizes in thin films of a polymer-fullerene blend for bulk heterojunction (BHJ) photovoltaics. Variations in common BHJ film processing parameters hav ...

98. Assessment of Factors Affecting Fire Performance of Mattresses: A Review
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1740
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 3/20/2012
Authors: Shonali Nazare, Rick D Davis
Abstract: An in-depth analysis of U.S. residential fire statistics shows that although the total number of fires and deaths due to mattress fires has dropped as a result of several regulatory approaches, the number of deaths per 1000 mattress/bedding fires ...

99. In situ observation of the indentation-induced phase transformation of silicon thin films
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 3/5/2012
Authors: Yvonne Beatrice Gerbig, Chris A Michaels, Aaron M Forster, Robert Francis Cook
Abstract: Indentation-induced phase transformation processes were studied by in situ Raman microspectroscopy of the deformed contact region of silicon on sapphire samples during contact loading and unloading. During loading, the formation of Si-II and another ...

100. Freeform Fabricated Scaffolds with Roughened Struts that Enhance both Stem Cell Proliferation and Differentiation by Controlling Cell Shape
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 3/1/2012
Authors: Girish Kumar, Carl George Simon Jr, Michael S. (Michael Stephan) Waters, Tanya M. Farooque, Marian F Young
Abstract: We demonstrate that imparting freeform fabricated (FFF) scaffolds with surface roughness on their struts enhances osteogenic differentiation of primary human bone marrow stromal cells (hBMSCs) by controlling cell shape. Previous work showed that hBM ...
