Mechanical Properties of Structural Materials at Low Temperatures: A Compilation From the Literature

Description: From Introduction: "The data are presented with the idea that an engineer who is making initial calculations on equipment for operation at cryogenic temperatures is more interested in obtaining quickly a definite figure that he in evaluating the experimental data given in several detailed reports on the same material. The graphs and tables presented here, consequently, represent an attempt by the authors to perform evaluation of data which have appeared in the literature and to present the design engineer with the result."

Low Temperature Mechanical Properties Of Copper and Selected Copper Alloys: A Compilation From the Literature

Description: From Abstract: "In the past 60 years considerable data have been accumulated concerning the mechanical properties of copper and its alloys.It was felt that there was great need to adequately document these results in one publication. Therefore a unique type of compilation is presented. The compilation is divided into four parts. The first section is intended for quick reference use for those who are interested in average values. The second section includes data from most of the investigators who have published results on the mechanical properties of copper and its alloys. The third section is composed of tables classifying the investigations which were not in section two. The fourth section section lists, in alphabetical order, all references used."

Testing of Metal Volumetric Standards

Description: From Purpose: "The specifications and tolerances contained in this Monograph should be of assistance to purchasers of metal capacity standards. The information on methods of calibration and use of these measures should prove valuable to weights and measures officials and those persons in industry who are concerned with measurements of volumes of fluids."

Properties of High-Temperature Ceramics and Cermets: Elasticity and Density at Room Temperature

Description: From Introduction: "The present paper contains detailed descriptions of the methods used in calculating both the elastic constants and the statistical parameters. These detailed descriptions have been included for two reasons: (1) To leave no doubt as to the exact procedure, and (2) to act as a guide to other workers who might wish to make similar determinations."

A Method for the Dynamic Determination of the Elastic, Dielectric, and Piezoelectric Constants of Quartz

Description: From Abstract: "Several dynamic determinations have been made of the constants of quartz. Most of these determinations do not take into account the piezoelectric effect; those that do, suffer from certain deficiencies which are discussed in this paper."

A Complete Mode Sum for LF, VLF, ELF Terrestrial Radio Wave Fields

Description: Report discussing the VLF, ELF propagation in the earth-ionosphere waveguide emphasizing the total field found by summing all modes which contribute appreciably. Solutions are given and calculations are made for a homogeneous isotropic ionosphere, a homogeneous ionosphere with a constant radial magnetic field imposed, and an ionosphere with a magnetic field of arbitrary dip angle.

Effects of Finite Lattice Heat Capacity on Spin Lattice Relaxation: Theory and Numerical Analysis

Description: Report discussing the transient magnetic behavior of a paramagnetic substance, after an initial disturbance, considered theoretically for a variety of situations in which the lattice temperature rises as a result of energy flow from the magnetic (electron spin) system. Next, the opposite extreme is considered - that in which the resonant and remaining modes are totally uncoupled. Finally, there is a consideration of the case of spins coupled only to the resonant phonons, which in turn are coupled to a constant temperature bath, whether this be the helium or the remaining modes.

The NBS Standard Hygrometer

Description: Report describing a gravimetric hygrometer that serves as the NBS standard instrument for the measurement of the moisture content of gases on an absolute basis in terms of mixing ratio (mass water vapor/ unit mass of dry gas). The National Bureau of Standards and other laboratory reference and working instruments are compared and calibrated with this instrument. The measuring operation involves the absorption of the water vapor from a water vapor-gas mixture by a solid desiccant and the determination of the mass of this water vapor by precision weighing; it also involves the determination of the volume of the associated gas of known density by counting the fillings of two calibrated stainless steel cylinders. The construction and operation of the instrument is described. Discussions of the tests and calibrations of component parts, and of the sources of errors also are included. There is also an analysis of the random and systematic errors effecting the overall accuracy in the determination of mixing ratio.
