11. Measurement Science Needs for the Expanded Use of Green Concrete: Workshop Summary Report
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1783
Published: 2/6/2013
Authors: Kenneth Alan Snyder, Dale P Bentz, Jeffrey W Bullard, Chiara F Ferraris, Nicos Martys, Paul E Stutzman
Abstract: In July 2012, NIST conducted the Green Concrete Workshop to bring together stakeholders from the concrete construction industry and identify critical needs for the expanded use of industrial by- product materials, such as fly ash and slag, in conc ...

12. Identifying improved standardized tests for measuring cement particle size and surface area
Published: 1/14/2013
Authors: Chiara F Ferraris, Edward Joseph Garboczi
Abstract: The Blaine fineness (Blaine) of a cement powder is a single parameter that is meant to characterize the specific surface area of a cement, and is assumed to be linked to physical and mechanical properties such as strength, setting time, and rheology. ...

13. Certification of SRM 2492: Bingham Paste Mixture for Rheological Measurements
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 260-174Rev. 2012
Published: 6/7/2012
Authors: Chiara F Ferraris, Paul E Stutzman, William F Guthrie
Abstract: Rheological measurements are often performed using a rotational rheometer. In this type of rheometer, the tested fluid is sheared between two surfaces, one of which is rotating [1]. Usually, the angular velocity is imposed and the response of the mat ...

14. Concrete rheometers
Published: 5/1/2012
Authors: Chiara F Ferraris, Nicos Martys
Abstract: The scope of this chapter is to introduce the current technology for measuring the rheological properties of concrete. The need to evaluate or assess the flow properties of concrete has resulted in the invention or design and standardization of hundr ...

15. Influence of Particle Size Distributions on Yield Stress and Viscosity of Cement-Fly Ash Pastes
Published: 2/1/2012
Authors: Dale P Bentz, Chiara F Ferraris, Michael A Galler, John Guynn, Andrew Hansen
Abstract: The rheological properties of blended cement-based materials depend strongly on mixture proportions and the characteristics of the components, such as cement and fly ash. In this study, design of experiments is used to investigate the influence of t ...

18. Rheological Characterization of Flow Table Reference Material
Published: 4/29/2011
Authors: Chiara F Ferraris, Haleh Azari
Abstract: The flow table is a standardized test that is widely used to qualify a mortar to be tested for compressive strength and air content. It is also the only standard test to quantify a mortar workability property. Therefore, the calibration of this dev ...

20. Optimization of Particle Sizes in High Volume Fly Ash Blended Cements
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Published: 2/2/2011
Authors: Dale P Bentz, Chiara F Ferraris, James J Filliben
Abstract: One major objective of the sustainable construction movement is to decrease the energy and carbon dioxide footprints of concrete. Since the production of portland cement is a major contributor in both of these areas, concretes with increasing quanti ...
