Caribbean Fishery Management Council; Public Meeting, 66041-66042 [2011-27582]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 206 / Tuesday, October 25, 2011 / Notices 2011 to be held at the NIST campus, with the option of participating via webbased meeting. The purpose of the meeting is to evaluate industry interest in creating a NIST/industry/Academia consortium focused on ‘‘Concrete Rheology: Enabling Metrology (CREME)’’. The goal of such a consortium could include determining key rheological parameters that best characterize the placement, finishability and consolidation of concrete. This goal would be achieved by developing test methods and models to measure and predict the performance parameters of fresh concrete in the lab and at the construction site. To move these ideas into practice and to engage industry, test bed facilities and quality control test methods for the field would be developed at NIST consortium members’ participation. The consortium would be administered by NIST with consortium members’ participation. Consortium planning, research and development would be conducted by NIST staff along with at least one technical representative from each participating member entities. Each member of the consortium will be required to sign a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (‘‘CRADA’’) with NIST. Membership fees for participation in the consortium will be Twenty-five Thousand ($25,000) per year. The initial term of the consortium is intended to be three years. The meeting will take place on November 8, 2011 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., in Bldg. 226/Rm. B205.
