11. A Robust and High-Throughput Measurement Platform for Monomer Reactivity Ratios from Surface-Initiated Polymerization
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 2/23/2012
Authors: Kirt A. Page, Derek Patton, Emily Hoff, Michael J Fasolka, Kathryn L Beers
Abstract: This article describes a robust approach to measure monomer reactivity ratios from surface-initiated copolymerization, by measuring composition of statistical copolymer brush surfaces using x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. Statistical copolymer br ...

12. A mini-review: Cell response to microscale, nanoscale, and hierarchical patterning of surface structure
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 9/12/2014
Authors: Carl George Simon Jr., Geunhyung Kim, HoJun Jeon
Abstract: Cellular behavior can be influenced by the chemical and physical surface characteristics of biomedical substrates. To understand the relationships between various topographical surface patterns and cellular activities, various types of pattern mo ...

13. 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 ...

14. A pilot interlaboratory comparison of protocols that simulate aging of nanocomposites and detect released fragments
Topic: Materials Science
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 ...

15. A review of fatigue crack growth for pipeline steels exposed to hydrogen
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 11/30/2010
Authors: Nicholas Nanninga, Andrew J Slifka, Yaakov Levy, Calvin L. White
Abstract: Hydrogen pipeline systems offer an economical means of storing and transporting energy in the form of hydrogen gas. Pipelines can be used to transport hydrogen that has been generated at solar and wind farms to and from salt cavern storage locations ...

16. 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 ...

Topic: Materials Science
Published: 1/5/2009
Authors: Angelique N Lasseigne, Kamalu Koenig, David Olson, Brajendra Mishra, Joshua Jackson, Thomas Allen Siewert, Joseph David McColskey
Abstract: New higher strength pipeline steels (X100 and X120) exhibit lower tolerance for hydrogen (diffusible and formed hydrides) before significant degradation or failure occurs. It is essential to have advanced sensors to monitor the hydrogen content and ...

18. Ab initio study of the mechanical and the transport properties of pure and contaminated silver nanowires
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 7/12/2013
Authors: Shmuel Barzilai, Francesca M Tavazza, Lyle E Levine
Abstract: The conductance and mechanical properties of pure and contaminated silver nanowires were studied using density functional theory (DFT) calculations. Several nanowires containing O2 on their surface were elongated along two different directions. All o ...

19. Accelerated Weathering of Firefighter Protective Clothing Containing Melamine Fiber Blends
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1751
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 8/14/2012
Authors: Shonali Nazare, 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 ...

20. Adhesion research at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 4/1/2010
Authors: Christopher M Stafford, Adam J. Nolte, Gale Antrus Holmes, Sheng Lin-Gibson, John A. Howarter
Abstract: NIST s involvement in adhesion research has been wide ranging and is ultimately in response to interactions between individual project leaders and our industrial partners. In this way, NIST s participation in the Adhesion Society has been instrument ...
