121. Cement Hydration: Building Bridges and Dams at the Microstructure Level
Published: 7/12/2006
Author: Dale P Bentz
Abstract: The concurrent goals of cement hydration are to percolate (bridge) the original cement particles into a load-bearing network and to depercolate (dam) the original water-filled capillary porosity. The initial volume, particle size distribution, and f ...

122. Report of Phase One Measurement and Analysis of Building Water System Contamination and Decontamination
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7351
Published: 7/3/2006
Authors: Stephen J. Treado, Mark A Kedzierski, Stephanie S Watson, Dale P Bentz, Nicos Martys, Kenneth D Cole
Abstract: This report describes the results of the first phase of a research project to evaluate how contaminants accidentally or intentionally introduced into the water supply might accumulate in building plumbing systems, and how these contaminants might be ...

123. Virtual Testing of Cement and Concrete
Published: 5/10/2006
Authors: Dale P Bentz, Edward Joseph Garboczi, Jeffrey W Bullard, Chiara F Ferraris, Nicos Martys, Paul E Stutzman
Abstract: Concrete is a unique multi-phase, random, complex, and composite material that provides both strength and impermeability to engineered structures. Unlike most construction materials, the properties of concrete continue to develop over time and in pl ...

124. Quantitative Comparison of Real and CEMHYD3D Model Microstructures Using Correlation Functions
Published: 2/8/2006
Author: Dale P Bentz
Abstract: A quantitative comparison of real and computer-generated (model) cement paste microstructures based on the analysis of three-dimensional image sets is presented. In addition to a visual presentation of extracted two-dimensional images, the compariso ...

125. Influence of Water-to-Cement Ratio on Hydration Kinetics: Simple Models Based on Spatial Considerations
Published: 2/1/2006
Author: Dale P Bentz
Abstract: sed on simple spatial considerations, models to describe the hydration kinetics of portland cement are developed and compared to existing experimental data, particularly in terms of the influence of the starting water-to-cement ratio (w/c) on hydrat ...

126. Modeling the Influence of Limestone Filler on Cement Hydration in CEMHYD3D
Published: 2/1/2006
Author: Dale P Bentz
Abstract: The ASTM C150 standard specification for portland cement now permits the addition of up to 5 % limestone filler. While these and much higher levels of limestone filler substitution have been employed in Europe and elsewhere for many years, the chang ...

127. Curing With Shrinkage-Reducing Admixtures Beyond Drying Shrinkage Reduction.
Published: 12/1/2005
Author: Dale P Bentz

128. Mixture Proportioning for Internal Curing.
Published: 12/1/2005
Authors: Dale P Bentz, Pietro Lura, J W Roberts

129. Replacement of Coarse" Cement Particles by Inert Fillers in Low w/c Ratio Concretes. Part 2. Experimental Validation. Communication.
Published: 12/1/2005
Author: Dale P Bentz

130. Towards a Methodology for the Characterization of Fire Protection Materials With Respect to Thermal Performance Models
Published: 10/12/2005
Authors: Dale P Bentz, Kuldeep R Prasad, Jiann C Yang
Abstract: A methodology is proposed for the characterization of fire protection materials with respect to thermal performance models. Typically in these models, materials are characterized by their densities, heat capacities, thermal conductivities, and any e ...
