11. Enhancing the Performance of High Volume Fly Ash Concretes Using Fine Limestone Powder
Published: 10/29/2013
Authors: Jussara Tanesi, Dale P Bentz, Ahmad Ardani
Abstract: One of the primary approaches being explored to produce more sustainable concretes consists of replacing a significant portion of the portland cement with industrial by-products. In high volume fly ash (HVFA) concretes, for example, the nominal goal ...

12. Fluid Transport in High-Volume Fly Ash Mixtures with and without Internal Curing
Published: 10/7/2013
Authors: Igor de la Varga, Robert Spragg, Carmelo di Bella, Javier Castro, Dale P Bentz, Jason Weiss
Abstract: The transport of fluid and ions in concrete mixtures is central to many aspects of concrete deterioration. As a result, transport properties are frequently measured as an indication of the durability that a concrete mixture may be expected to have. T ...

13. Electrical Resistivity Measurements in Cementitious Systems: Observations of Factors that Influence the Measurements
Published: 10/1/2013
Authors: Robert Spragg, Chiara Villani, Kenneth Alan Snyder, Dale P Bentz, Jeffrey W Bullard, Jason Weiss
Abstract: The electrical resistivity of concrete is increasingly measured as an indicator of its fluid transport properties, for use in quality control or for service life prediction. While electrical tests have the advantage of being easy and rapid to perfo ...

14. Influence of Sample Curing Conditions on Internal Curing Benefits Seen in Cementitious Materials
Published: 9/27/2013
Authors: Michael Golias, Dale P Bentz, Jason Weiss
Abstract: Internal curing uses pre-wetted fine lightweight aggregate (LWA) to supply cementitious systems with water. This increases the hydration of cement and reduces the influence of self-desiccation resulting in concrete with increased compressive strength ...

15. Best Practices Guide for High-Volume Fly Ash Concretes: Assuring Properties and Performance
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1812
Published: 9/18/2013
Authors: Dale P Bentz, Chiara F Ferraris, Kenneth Alan Snyder
Abstract: A best practices guide is developed from a synthesis of recent research on high-volume fly ash (HVFA) concrete mixtures. These best practices can be applied by the concrete construction industry to achieve desired properties and ensure the (high) per ...

16. Viscosity Modifiers to Enhance Early Age Performance and Long Term Durability of Concrete
Published: 9/1/2013
Authors: Dale P Bentz, Kenneth Alan Snyder, Max A Peltz, K H Obla, Haejin Kim
Abstract: The service life distribution of concrete structures typically follows a ,bathtubŠ-shaped function, with a finite probability of early-age failures being followed by a life with a relative low probability of failure that ultimately increases dramatic ...

17. Using a Saturation Function to Interpret the Electrical Properties of Partially Saturated Concrete
Published: 8/29/2013
Authors: William Jason Weiss, Kenneth Alan Snyder, Jeffrey W Bullard, Dale P Bentz
Abstract: Electrical properties are frequently measured in the concrete construction industry as a part of mixture qualification and quality control testing. While there are several factors that influence the electrical response of concrete, one of the most i ...

18. Ternary Blends for Economical and Environmentally Friendly Concretes
Published: 7/31/2013
Authors: Dale P Bentz, Jussara Tanesi, Ahmad Ardani
Abstract: As sustainability moves to the forefront of trends in construction, concrete mixture proportions must be adjusted and adapted to a new set of economic and environmental demands. While high-volume fly ash concretes have been investigated extensively s ...

19. A Comparison Study of Portland Cement Hydration Kinetics as Measured by Chemical Shrinkage and Isothermal Calorimetry
Published: 5/1/2013
Authors: Xueyu Pang, Dale P Bentz, Christian Meyer, Gary Funkhouser, Robert Darbe
Abstract: Two different methods of evaluating cement hydration kinetics, namely chemical shrinkage and isothermal calorimetry tests, are used to investigate the early stage hydration of different classes of oilwell cement at various temperatures. For a given c ...

20. Modeling of the Influence of Transverse Cracking on Chloride Penetration into Concrete
Published: 4/23/2013
Authors: Dale P Bentz, Edward Joseph Garboczi, Yang Lu, Nicos Martys, Aaron Richard Sakulich, William Jason Weiss
Abstract: Concrete service life models have proliferated in recent years due to increased interest in designing infrastructure elements with at least a 75-year service life, along with greater emphasis on life cycle costing in general. While current models con ...
