Emerging technologies in the field of thermometry

June 2, 2022
Author(s)
Zeeshan Ahmed, Graham Machin, Sergey Dedyulin
The past decade saw the emergence of new temperature sensors that have the potential to disrupt a century-old measurement infrastructure based on resistance thermometry. In this review we present an overview of emerging technologies that are either in the

Fire Resilience of a Steel-Concrete Composite Floor System: Full-Scale Experimental Evaluation for Influence of Slab Reinforcement (Test #2)

Lisa Choe, Matthew Hoehler, Matthew Bundy, Rodney A. Bryant, Brian Story, Anthony R. Chakalis, Artur A. Chernovsky, Selvarajah Ramesh, Xu Dai
The National Institute of Standards and Technology is currently conducting a series of large compartment fire tests to investigate the behavior and fire-induced failure mechanisms of the full-scale composite floor assemblies with the two-story steel

Reference Material 8376 Microbial Pathogen DNA Standards for Detection and Identification

June 1, 2022
Author(s)
Jason Kralj, Dieter Tourlousse, Monique Hunter, Erica Romsos, Blaza Toman, Peter Vallone, Scott Jackson
Reference Material (RM) 8376 is intended for NGS-based measurements quantitative to the chromosome. A unit of RM 8376 consists of 20 components (A-T, 19 bacteria and 1 human) each containing well-characterized DNA in 10 mmol/L Tris-HCl, 1 mmol/L EDTA pH 8

Agile Robotic Planning with Gwendolen

May 31, 2022
Author(s)
John L. Michaloski, Craig I. Schlenoff, Rafael Cardoso, Michael Fisher
The future of robotics foresees autonomous behavior that can complete tasks intelligently, with a focus on adaptability, flexibility, and versatility. In such systems, it is critical for robots to quickly and safely perform an operation. However, such

Assessment of intra-build variations in tensile strength in electron beam powder-bed fusion Ti-6Al-4V part 2: Effects of powder mixing

May 31, 2022
Author(s)
Nicholas Derimow, Jake Benzing, Orion Kafka, Newell Moser, Priya Pathare, Michael Walker, Frank DelRio, Nik Hrabe
In Part 2 of this paper series, high-throughput tensile testing and characterization of porosity, microstructure, and oxygen content was carried out on Ti-6Al-4V samples that were fabricated via electron beam powder-bed fusion (PBF-EB) to test our

Implementing NIST infiltration correlations

May 27, 2022
Author(s)
Jyrteanna Teo, Lisa Ng
This tutorial is a guide on how to implement the NIST infiltration correlations (Ng et al., 2021) into EnergyPlus building energy simulation software for the US Department of Energy prototype commercial buildings. The implementation can also be generalized

Blockchain for Access Control Systems

May 26, 2022
Author(s)
Vincent C. Hu
The rapid development and wide application of distributed network systems have made network security – especially access control and data privacy – ever more important. Blockchain technology offers features such as decentralization, high confidence, and

Communicating Confidence of Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substance (PFAS) Identification via High Resolution Mass Spectrometry

May 26, 2022
Author(s)
Joseph Charbonnet, Carrie McDonough, Feng Xiao, Trever Schwichtenberg, Dunping Cao, Sarit Kaserzon, Kevin Thomas, Pradeep Dewapriya, Benjamin Place, Emma Schymanski, Jennifer Field, Damian Helbling, Christopher Higgins
Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) are important environmental contaminants, yet relatively few analytical reference standards exist for this class. Nontarget analyses performed by means of high-resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS) are increasingly

Consumer Perspectives on Loss of Support for Smart Home Devices

May 26, 2022
Author(s)
Julie Haney, Susanne M. Furman
Unsupported smart home devices can pose serious safety and security issues for consumers. However, unpatched and vulnerable devices may remain connected because consumers may not be alerted that their devices are no longer supported or do not understand

A Framework to Evaluate the Cost-Effectiveness of Recovery-Based Design

May 24, 2022
Author(s)
Juan Fung, Yating Zhang, Katherine Johnson, Dustin Cook, Siamak Sattar
Modern building codes and standards are generally focused on safeguarding public health and safety by ensuring buildings meet life safety performance objectives following an earthquake event. Certain classes of buildings, such as hospitals and schools, may

Improved Accuracy for Calibrated Mass Distribution Measurements of Bimetallic Nanoparticles

May 23, 2022
Author(s)
Kaleb Duelge, George Mulholland, Antonio Montoro Bustos, Michael Zachariah, Michael Zachariah, John Pettibone
Implementation of hybrid nanoparticles (HNPs), consisting of two different metal components, into applied systems has been hindered by an incomplete understanding of structural and chemical properties responsible for their enhanced, yet inconsistent

Pairs of Heron and right triangles with a common area and a common perimeter

May 23, 2022
Author(s)
Abhishek Juyal, Dustin Moody
A Heron triangle is one in which the side lengths and area are integers. An integral right triangle is an example of a Heron triangle. In this paper, we show that there are infinitely many pairs of integral right triangles and Heron triangles with a common

A Data Structure for Integrity Protection with Erasure Capability

May 20, 2022
Author(s)
D. Richard Kuhn
This document describes a data structure, referred to as a data block matrix, that supports the ongoing addition of hash-linked records while also allowing for the deletion of arbitrary records, thereby preserving hash-based integrity assurance that other
