411. The Economics of New-Technology Materials: A Case Study of FRP Bridge Decking
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5864
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 7/1/1996
Authors: M A Ehlen, Harold E. Marshall
Abstract: Many new materials are bing developed from polymers, metals, and ceramics. Industry is beginning to introduce some of these high-performance or new-technology materials in construction and manufacturing applications because the materials have advant ...

412. LIFE-CYCLE COSTING MANUAL for the Federal Energy Management Program, NIST Handbook 135, 1995 Edition
Series: Handbook (NIST HB)
Report Number: 135
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 2/1/1996
Authors: S Fuller, Steve Petersen
Abstract: Handbook 135 is a guide to understanding the life-cycle cost (LCC) methodology and criteria established by the Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) for the economic evaluation of energy and water conservation projects and renewable energy project ...

413. A nonlinear model for gusset plate connections
Topic: Materials Science
Published: Date unknown
Authors: Dat Duthinh, Chiara Crosti
Abstract: The investigation of the 2007 collapse of the I-35 W Bridge in Minnesota, United States, used very detailed nonlinear finite-element (FE) analysis, which is too difficult for routine design. On the other hand, simple guidelines amenable to hand calcu ...

414. Characterization of Standard Reference Material 2942, Ce-Ion-Doped Glass, Spectral Correction Standard for UV Fluorescence
Topic: Materials Science
Published: Date unknown
Authors: Paul C DeRose, Melody V Smith, Klaus Mielenz, Jeffrey R. Anderson, Gary W Kramer
Abstract: Standard Reference Material (SRM) 2942 is a cuvette-shaped, Ce-ion-doped glass, recommended for use for relative spectral correction of emission and day-to-day performance verification of steady-state fluorescence spectrometers. Properties of this st ...

415. Characterizing and Fractionating Native Cellulose Nanofibers
Topic: Materials Science
Published: Date unknown
Authors: Iulia Alisa Sacui, Jeffrey W Gilman
Abstract: Cellulose nanofibers have good elastic modulus properties and can be used as nano-reinforcements in polymer composites. Native cellulose nanofibers from wood, Tunicate, and bacteria (Acetobacter xylium) were characterized by atomic force microscopy ( ...

416. Development of Multicolor Flow Cytometry Standards: Assignment of Equivalent Reference Fluorophores (ERF) Unit
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Topic: Materials Science
Published: Date unknown
Authors: Lili Wang, Adolfas Kastytis Gaigalas
Abstract: A procedure is described for assigning values of the number of equivalent reference fluorophores (ERF) to microspheres labeled with a fluorophore designed to produce fluorescence in a given channel of a multicolor flow cytometer. There is a different ...

417. Electron-Excited Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectrometry in the Variable Pressure Scanning Electron Microscope (EDS/VPSEM): It‰s Not Microanalysis Anymore!
Topic: Materials Science
Published: Date unknown
Authors: Dale E Newbury, Nicholas W m Ritchie
Abstract: X-ray spectra measured in the variable-pressure scanning electron microscope (VPSEM, chamber pressure 1 to 2500 Pa) suffer significantly degraded spatial resolution compared to high-vacuum SEM (operating pressure < 10 mPa). Depending on the gas path ...

418. In situ Mapping and Characterization of Biodegradable Polymers within Soil Bacteria using Surface-Enhanced Micro-Raman Spectroscopy
Topic: Materials Science
Published: Date unknown
Authors: Santanu S. Kundu, Michael S. (Michael Stephan) Waters, Irene G. Calizo, Angela R Hight Walker, Kathryn L Beers
Abstract: Several species of environmental bacteria can be optimized to produce commercially harvestable biodegradable polymers (e.g. polyhydroxyalkanoates), and to degrade pollutants (e.g. halogenated aromatic compounds). Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) are incr ...

419. Origins of enhanced capacity retention in copolymerized sulfur - based composite cathodes for high-energy density Li-S batteries
Topic: Materials Science
Published: Date unknown
Authors: Vladimir Pavlovich Oleshko, Jenny J. Kim, Jennifer Lyn Schaefer, Steven D Hudson, Christopher Soles, Adam Simmonds, Jared Griebel, Kookheon Char, Jeff Pyun
Abstract: Poly(sulfur-random-(1,3-diisopropenylbenzene) (poly(S-r-DIB)) copolymers synthesized via inverse vulcanization form high molecular mass electrochemically active polymers capable of realizing enhanced capacity retention (1005 mAh/g at 100 cycles) and ...

420. Carbon Nanomaterials Standards Efforts at NIST
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 5/24/0009
Author: Jeffrey A Fagan
Abstract: Development of carbon nano-materials for applications has been hindered to date by a lack of standard protocols, i.e. documentary standards, and physical standards such as reference materials, which enable the common inter-comparison between laborato ...
