Recommended Practice for the Use of Metric (SI) Units in Building Design and Construction

Recommended Practice for the Use of Metric (SI) Units in Building Design and Construction

Date: April 1977
Creator: Milton, Hans J.
Description: Report issued by the U.S. National Bureau of Standards discussing the use of metric units of measurement during construction. As stated in the scope, "this document outlines a selection of SI units, with multiples and sub-multiples, for general use in building design and construction" (p. 1). This report includes tables, and illustrations.

Relativistic Many-Body Bound Systems: Electromagnetic Properties

Relativistic Many-Body Bound Systems: Electromagnetic Properties

Date: April 1977
Creator: Danos, Michael
Description: Report presenting the formulae for the calculation of the electron scattering form factors, and of the static magnetic dipole and electric quadrupole moments, of relativistic many-body bound systems. The framework, given in NBS Monograph 147, is relativistic quantum field theory in the Schrodinger picture ; the physical particles, i.e. the solutions of the interacting fields, are given as linear combinations of the solutions of the free fields, called the parton fields. The parton-photon interaction is taken as given by minimal coupling, p -> p - eA ; in addition the contribution of the photon-vector meson vertex of the vector dominance model is derived.

[Letter from the United States National Bureau of Standards]

[Letter from the United States National Bureau of Standards]

Date: [1977?]
Creator: United States. National Bureau of Standards.
Description: Letter from the acting director of the U.S. National Bureau of Standards introducing the materials in the NBS Metric Kit. The kit was compiled to support the Metric Conversion Act, signed in December 1975, which would convert measurements used in the United States to the metric system of measurement. Includes an order form for additional materials and the metric kit envelope.

NBS Metric Kit : Official Metric Information

NBS Metric Kit : Official Metric Information

Date: 1977?
Creator: United States. National Bureau of Standards.
Description: Kit issued by the U.S. National Bureau of Standards containing materials regarding conversion to the metric system of measurement. The kit includes a letter of introduction; an order form; two plastic cards printed with rulers and conversion information; and four booklets that discuss how the metric system is different from the English system of measurement, why America should switch, and reference materials for converting.

Some References on Metric Information, Including a Chart on All You Need to Know About Metric

Date: January 1977
Creator: United States. National Bureau of Standards.
Description: Pamphlet issued by the United States National Bureau of Standards containing a list of government pamphlets, reports, and other resources related to the metric system of measurement. It includes a form for ordering materials from the Government Printing Office as well as an illustrated description of everyday conversions for weight, volume, length, and temperature.

Computers, Health Records, and Citizen Rights

Date: December 1976
Creator: Westin, Alan F.
Description: Report issued by the Bureau of Standards over studies on the benefits of computerized record-keeping. Medical records were chosen for the studies, and they also focus on patient privacy and rights. This report includes tables, and illustrations.

What About Metric?

What About Metric?

Date: October 1976
Creator: Barbrow, Louis E. & Halpin, Suellen
Description: Pamphlet issued by the United States National Bureau of Standards discussing the reasons that the U.S. decided passed the Metric Conversion Act of 1975 and provides tables, illustrations, and formulas for converting between customary units and metric units of measuring weight, length, volume, and temperature. It also includes a discussion of how one might expect to use metric measurements in the marketplace, in the home, and at work.

Brief History of Measurement Systems: with a Chart of the Modernized Metric System

Brief History of Measurement Systems: with a Chart of the Modernized Metric System

Date: August 1976
Creator: United States. National Bureau of Standards.
Description: Pamphlet issued by the United States National Bureau of Standards providing an overview of the English system of measurement used in the United States and of the metric system. The internal pages of the pamphlet contain a chart labeled "The Modernized Metric System" which includes tables of common conversions and a chart of the seven base units: meter/length, kilogram/mass, second/time, ampere/electric current, kelvin/temperature, mole/amount of substance, and candela/luminous intensity, as well as two supplementary units: radian/plane angle and steradian/solid angle. There is also a graphic representation of yards versus meters in ruler form at the bottom.

The Dynamics of Fields of Higher Spin

The Dynamics of Fields of Higher Spin

Date: August 1976
Creator: Hayward, Raymond W.
Description: Report presenting a relativistic theory of motion that is free of many of the difficulties common in relativistic equations of motion. This Lagrangian theory describes fields and particles with arbitrary mass and charge and having any discrete spin, integer or half integer.

The First Spectrum of Hafnium (HF I)

The First Spectrum of Hafnium (HF I)

Date: July 1976
Creator: Meggers, William F.
Description: Report continuing W. K. Meggers' previous analysis in LS-coupling. This coupling is not rigorous in Hf I, and many intervals are irregular. Consequently, the levels are given also in numerical order with the even and odd levels presented in separate tables. The long line lists are given in two Appendices: Appendix A contains the observed Zeeman data for the individual lines, 531 in all; Appendix B consists of the complete line list of observed and classified lines. By far the greater part of the analysis is that of Meggers.
