Instrument: Diode pumped, solid state high speed Nd:YVO4 laser system. Manufacturer: Edgewave GmgH, Germany. Intended Use: The instrument will be used to conduct particle imaging velocimetry, and Rayleigh scattering and planar laser-induced fluorescence, to understand the fundamental roles of fluid turbulence on scalar mixing and reaction rates by studying fundamental fluid mechanics and chemical kinetics in turbulent flows with and without chemical reaction and combustion. The primary targets are non-reacting turbulent flows consisting of compressed air and combusting turbulent flows with fuels of methane and oxidizer of air. The products of combustion are water, carbon dioxide, and nitrogen. The instrument is required to operate over a broad range of experiment conditions with specific targets of repetition rates ranging from 1 to 50 kHz. At these repetition rates, a minimum output power of 20 Watts is required at all operating conditions. A high-quality beam profile of M2<2 is also needed. The pulse duration of the laser must also be less than 10 nanoseconds. Without these characteristics, accurate velocity and scalar fields, including species concentration, temperature, and density cannot be measured. Justification for Duty-Free Entry: There are no instruments of the same general category manufactured in the United States. Application accepted by Commissioner of Customs: April 3, 2014. Dated: June 10, 2014. Gregory W. Campbell, Director of Subsidies Enforcement, Enforcement and Compliance.

that it would issue its preliminary determination no later than 140 
days after the publication date of the initiation.

Pueblo, Gerdau Ameristeel US Inc., Keystone Consolidated Industries, 
Inc., and Nucor Corporation (hereafter, the petitioners) made timely 
requests, pursuant to section 733(c)(1)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.205(e), for a 50-day postponement of the preliminary determination
