Certification Approaches for Weigh-In-Motion Systems in Law Enforcement Applications

March 26, 2024
Katrice Lippa, Jan Konijnenburg, Loren Minnich, Tanvi Pandya, James Willis
Every day, overweight and excessively heavy vehicles cause damage to roads, bridges, and other vehicle-based infrastructure. To protect this vital transportation infrastructure for the U.S., states have imposed weight limits for commercial and fleet

An Evolving Regulatory Landscape for Commercial Electric Vehicle Fueling

August 22, 2023
Tina G. Butcher, Michael Nelson
Plug-in electric vehicles (PEV), which include "all-electric" battery EV (BEV) and plug-in hybrid EV (PHEV), comprise a rapidly growing proportion of the U.S. automobile market – nearly 8% of all light-duty vehicles sold in Oct. 2022, a 41.4% rise over

Considering Interoperability for Electric Vehicle Charging: A Commission Case Study

March 13, 2023
Cuong Nguyen, Avi Gopstein, Danielle Sass Byrnett, Kerry Worthington, Christopher Villarreal
As adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) increases across the United States and charging equipment to power vehicles is installed, the electricity system, states, utilities, EV manufacturers, EV supply equipment (EVSE) manufacturers, and stakeholders are

NVLAP Federal Warfare System(s)

July 21, 2021
Bradley Moore, John Matyjas, Raymond Tierney, Jesse Angle, Jeannine Abiva, Jeff Hanes, David Dobosh, John Avera
NIST Handbook 150-872 presents the technical requirements and guidance for the accreditation of laboratories under the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP) Federal Warfare System(s) (FWS) program. It is intended for information and

National Institute of Standards and Technology Environmental Scan 2020

February 9, 2021
Heather Evans, Kristen K. Greene, William M. Healy, Elizabeth Hoffman, Kate Rimmer, Anna V. Sberegaeva, Neil M. Zimmerman
The 2020 National Institute of Standards and Technology Environmental Scan provides an analysis of key external factors that could impact NIST and the fulfillment of its mission in coming years. The analyses were conducted through four separate lenses

Deterministic Intra-Vehicle Communications: Timing and Synchronization

July 26, 2020
Hamid Gharavi
As we power through to the future, in-vehicle communications' reliance on speed is becoming a challenging predicament. This is mainly due to the ever-increasing number of electronic control units (ECUs), which will continue to drain network capacity, hence

Fatigue Testing of Pipeline Welds and Heat-Affected Zones in Pressurized Hydrogen Gas

April 26, 2019
Elizabeth S. Drexler, Andrew J. Slifka, Robert L. Amaro, Jeffrey W. Sowards, Matthew J. Connolly, May L. Martin, Damian S. Lauria
Several welds and associated heat-affected zones (HAZs) on two API X70 and two API X52 pipes were tested to determine the fatigue crack growth rate (FCGR) in pressurized hydrogen gas and assess the area of the pipe that was most susceptible to fatigue when

Fundamentals and characterizations of scratch resistance on automotive clearcoats

September 11, 2018
Li Piin Sung, Linqian Feng, Nadia Benhamida, Pierre Morel, Andrew T. Detwiler, Jon M. Skelly, Leslie T. Baker, Deepanjan Bhattacharya
As original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) strive to deliver improved coating performance with a sustainable footprint, opportunities for innovation are emerging, particularly on improving mechanical properties, appearance, and solids content. Resistance

Cooperative Vehicular Networking: A Survey

March 8, 2018
Hamid Gharavi
With the remarkable progress of cooperative communication technology in recent years, its transformation to vehicular networking is gaining momentum. Such a transformation has brought a new research challenge in facing the realization of cooperative


July 31, 2017
Andrew Slifka, Robert L. Amaro, Devin T. O'Connor, Benjamin E. Long, Elizabeth S. Drexler
In this work, we applied a finite element model to predict the cyclic lifetime of 4130 steel cylinders under the influence of hydrogen. This example is used to demonstrate the efficacy of a fatigue crack growth (FCG) model we have developed. The model was


July 31, 2017
Andrew Slifka, Robert L. Amaro, Elizabeth S. Drexler, Devin T. O'Connor, Benjamin E. Long
In this work we further develop a model to predict hydrogen-assisted fatigue crack growth in steel pipelines and pressure vessels. This implementation of the model is informed by finite element code, which uses an elastic-plastic constitutive model in
