NIST SRM 1450

This page allows you to download the datasets, the fit output and plots, and the Dataplot macros that were used to generate them for the analysis described in NIST publication:

Retrospective Analysis of NIST Standard Reference Material 1450, Fibrous Glass Board, for Thermal Insulation Measurements, by Robert Zarr, Alan Heckert, and Stefan Leigh.

The files are collected into the following zip files. These zip files can be unpacked to whatever location is convenient to you. Once the zip files are unpacked, the file names help identify the dataset being analyzed. Specifically, the following substrings in the file name are associated with the listed dataset.
