32. Applicability of post-ionization theory to laser-assisted field evaporation of magnetite
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 12/18/2014
Authors: Ann Chiaramonti Chiaramonti Debay, D. K. Schreiber, Lyle M Gordon, Karen Kruska
Abstract: Analysis of the mean Fe ion charge state from laser-assisted field evaporation of magnetite (Fe3O4) reveals unexpected trends as a function of laser pulse energy that break from conventional post-ionization theory for metals. For Fe ions evaporated ...

33. MECHANICS ANALYSIS OF MOLAR TOOTH SPLITTING
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 12/12/2014
Authors: Amir Barani, Brian Ronald Lawn, Mark Bush, Herzl Chai
Abstract: A model for the splitting of teeth from wedge loading of molar cusps from a round indenting object is presented. The model is developed in two parts: first, a simple 2D fracture mechanics configuration with the wedged tooth simulated by a compact ...

34. Surface Analysis and Materials Characterization for the Study of the Ceramic Tiles HRSI from the Space Shuttle Thermal Protective Systems
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 10/12/2014
Authors: Hanna Szczepanowska, Thomas B Renegar
Abstract: The orbital thermal management systems fall into two categories, ablative or reusable. The first type was successfully applied on the Apollo missions, the second was used on the Space Shuttle Orbiters. The ceramic High-temperature Reusable Surfac ...

35. 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 ...
