NIST Study details progress of wildland-urban fire.NIST Study details progress of wildland-urban fire.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
June 19, 2009 To better understand Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) fires as well as how best to prevent or fight them, researchers at NIST have issued an in-depth study on fire behavior and defensive actions taken in a community during such a fire. Data collected pertaining to the Oct. 21-22, 2007 "Witch Fire" north of San Diego, CA details its approach from the wildlands, the effects of the fire in the community, and defensive actions taken by owners and first responders.
Strain at Grain Boundaries suppresses superconductivity.Strain at Grain Boundaries suppresses superconductivity.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
June 19, 2009 According to NIST researchers, reduction in mechanical strain at boundaries of crystal grains can improve performance of high-temperature superconductors. Although it is known that dislocations cause part of grain boundary cross-section to become non-superconducting, effect of strain which extends from dislocations into remaining superconducting bridges was previously unknown. New understanding could advance development of materials for power transmission and power grid reliability applications.
