Download as PDF asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 21846 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 71 / Wednesday, April 13, 2016 / Notices To ensure safe laboratory procedures, each participant will need to conduct his/her operations in a manner consistent with NIST’s safety policies and procedures. The participant will need to provide information regarding the technical qualifications of his/her personnel who would conduct laboratory work at NIST (‘‘Participant Project Team’’). Furthermore, the participant will need to provide a proposed safety standard operation procedure (SSOP) that would require approval from the NIST Consortium Manager. Each participant will be responsible for its Participant Project Team. Each member of the Participant Project Team working in the laboratory housing the NIST ASR Specimens will be required to take a one-time laboratory safety awareness training by NIST prior to accessing the laboratory. This training will require less than two (2) hours, and may take place before the first day of the Participant’s Project Team’s scheduled access to the NIST ASR specimens. To minimize disruption to NIST’s ongoing laboratory work, participants’ access to the specimens will be limited. Because the kinetics of the expansion cannot be predicted accurately, NIST may not be able to provide the participants with advance notice regarding the availability of the NIST ASR Specimens to the participants for measurements. NIST will inform the participants only after the specimen undergoes a measureable change in expansion. Unless a periodic access schedule is already in place between NIST and a participant, the participant would need to be able to arrive, set-up, and conduct its measurements with as little as one (1) week of notice. In general, it is expected that the NIST ASR Specimens will be available to the participants for measurements about one (1) month after casting of the NIST ASR Specimens, and periodically for the three (3) months thereafter. NIST also intends to provide each participant with one (1) day per scheduled visit to set up the NDE equipment and to complete data collection. Participants must not employ NDE measurement processes that can alter the physical or chemical state of the existing concrete blocks. Any data and intellectual property resulting from the research under this Consortium will be owned by the party that developed the data or intellectual property. NIST will not seek any patent protection on any invention conceived by NIST employees under this Consortium. Each participant in the Consortium will be required to inform NIST of any intellectual property developed by the members of its VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:41 Apr 12, 2016 Jkt 238001 Participant Project Team in the performance of the research under this Consortium. Any intellectual property conceived by a member of its Participant Project Team will be subject to a non-exclusive, non-transferrable, paid-up license to practice to have practiced the intellectual property for government purposes, including research purposes. Each participant may use its own results for internal research, but a participant may not disclose the results to the public or any other third party without the prior written permission of NIST Consortium Manager. Participation Process: Eligibility will be determined by NIST based on the information provided by prospective participants in response to this notice on a first-come, first-serve basis. All participants will be required to sign the Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) for this Consortium, and each participant will be bound to the same terms and conditions in consideration of participation in the Consortium. Participants will not be required to contribute any funds or pay any fee. NIST will evaluate the written responses from prospective participants to determine eligibility to participate in this Consortium. Prospective participants should provide the following information to NIST’s Consortium Manager: (1) Can the NDE technology quantify, or does it have the potential to quantify, the mechanical properties of the concrete throughout the reinforced concrete block? (2) Can the NDE technology quantify, or does it have the potential to quantify, the degree of expansion/crack development throughout the reinforced concrete block? (3) Can the NDE technology quantify, or does it have the potential to quantify, the degree of the ASR reaction throughout the concrete block? (4) Can the NDE technology quantify, or does it have the potential to quantify, the degree of expansion/stress on the surface of the reinforced concrete block? A responding organization should not include any business proprietary information in its response to this request for information. NIST will not treat any information provided in response to this request as proprietary information. Phillip Singerman, Associate Director for Innovations and Industry Services.
