Correlation Between the Pressure Dependence of the Critical Temperature and the Reversible Strain Effect on the Critical Current and Pinning Force in Bi 2 Sr 2 CaCu 2 O 8+x Wires

December 16, 2011

Xifeng Lu, Loren F. Goodrich, Daniel C. van der Laan, Jolene D. Splett, Najib Cheggour, T G. Holesinger, F J. Baca
Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+x round wires are among the most promising high-temperature superconductor candidates for making high-field magnets that operate at fields above 20 Tesla. Owing to the brittle nature of high-temperature superconductors, their electro

Loren F. Goodrich, Najib Cheggour, Xifeng Lu, Jolene D. Splett, Theodore C. Stauffer, Bernard J. Filla
We have defined a rigorous and reliable method for determining the irreversible strain limit of Nb3Sn wires. The critical current (Ic) is measured as a function of applied longitudinal strain (ε), Ic(ε), at one magnetic field and a temperature of 4.0 K

Dylan F. Williams, Arkadiusz C. Lewandowski, Denis X. LeGolvan, Ronald A. Ginley, Chih-Ming Wang, Jolene D. Splett
We present measurements indicating that electronic calibration units are stable enough to be used in place of mechanical vector-network-analyzer verification artifacts. This enables a new fully automated approach to verifying microwave vector-network

Influence of Ti and Ta doping on the irreversible strain limit of ternary Nb 3 Sn superconducting wires made by the restacked-rod process

April 1, 2010
Author(s)
Najib Cheggour, Loren F. Goodrich, Theodore C. Stauffer, Jolene D. Splett, Xifeng Lu, A. K. Ghosh, G. Ambrosio
Nb3Sn superconducting wires made with restacked-rod process (RRP®) were found to have a dramatically improved resilience to axial tensile strain when alloyed with Ti as compared to Ta. Whereas Ta-alloyed Nb3Sn in RRP wires showed permanent damage to its

September 1, 2008
Author(s)
Jolene D. Splett, Christopher N. McCowan, Chih-Ming Wang
The purpose of this document is to clarify some issues pertaining to uncertainty statements and the ASTM E 23 limits used in the Charpy machine verification program. We explain some of the distributional subtleties associated with uncertainty and

Dynamic Force Measurement: Instrumented Charpy Impact Testing

January 1, 2008
Author(s)
Christopher N. McCowan, Jolene D. Splett, E. Lucon
The maximum forces measured by the machines in this round robin are in good agreement. This general result shows that the static force calibration of instrumented strikers is quite robust, and that the various striker designs evaluated here performed in a

An Empirical Model for the Warm-Up Drift of a Commercial Harmonic Phase Standard

June 1, 2007
Author(s)
Jeffrey A. Jargon, Jolene D. Splett, Dominic F. Vecchia, Donald C. DeGroot
We develop an empirical model for the warm-up drift in a harmonic phase standard used to calibrate the phase distortion of a nonlinear vector network analyzer. The model enables us to estimate the time at which the standard reaches stability.

Current Ripple Effect on n-Value

June 1, 2007
Author(s)
Loren F. Goodrich, Jolene D. Splett
We studied the systematic effect of current ripple on the determination of n-value, which is the index of the shape of the electric field-current (E-I) curve. Commercial Nb3Sn wires were measured with controlled amounts of ac ripple. Substitution-box

Evaluation Specimens for Izod Impact Machines (SRM 2115): Report of Analysis

October 1, 2006

Thomas A. Siewert, Jolene D. Splett, Raymond L. Santoyo
In the past few years, we have received a number of requests for verification specimens for Izod impact machines, similar to what we offer for Charpy impact machines. Although there are similarities between Izod and Charpy impact testing, there are some

International Comparison of Impact Reference Materials (2004)

April 3, 2006

Jolene D. Splett, Christopher N. McCowan
Indirect verification tests, used to verify the performance of Charpy impact machines according to ASTM Standard E23, are evaluated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the data from these tests are co1lected in a database. The
