41. Feasibility of Using a Concrete Mixing Truck as a Rheometer(Orlando, Florida)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7447
Published: 9/19/2007
Authors: Chiara F Ferraris, Roy Cooley, Joe Grein, Max A Peltz, Michael Topputo, Steve Verdino
Abstract: The goal of the tests reported here was to further determine the feasibility of using a concrete mixing truck as a rotational rheometer. This work is the continuation of preliminary tests [ , ] that seemed to indicated that the yield stress and the ...

42. Cement and Concrete Materials Research at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
Published: 9/5/2007
Authors: Edward Joseph Garboczi, Dale P Bentz, Jeffrey W Bullard, Chiara F Ferraris, Nicos Martys, Max A Peltz, Sudalin Rodrigues, Paul E Stutzman, Kenneth Alan Snyder, John A. Winpigler
Abstract: The materials science of cement and concrete is the focus of the Inorganic Materials Group at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). These experimental and computational research efforts include component and finished materials ch ...

43. Computational Model Predictions of Suspension Rheology: Comparison to Experiment
Published: 7/25/2007
Authors: Nicos Martys, Chiara F Ferraris, V Gupta, Josephine H Cheung
Abstract: Predicting the rheological properties of fresh concrete, mortars, and cement paste from first principles remains a great challenge. While progress has been made in modeling the rheological properties of idealized hard sphere-like suspensions, there i ...

44. Concrete Rheology: Knowledge and Challenges?
Published: 9/13/2006
Author: Chiara F Ferraris
Abstract: The design of concrete with specified properties for an application is not a new science, but it has taken on a new meaning with the wide use of special concretes, such as self compacting concrete (SCC). General terms such as flow under its own weig ...

45. New Approach to Identify Compatibility of Materials for Concrete Related to Early Stiffening
Published: 9/13/2006
Authors: Chiara F Ferraris, Philip R Taylor
Abstract: The measurement of the evolution of mechanical characteristics during the setting period of concrete is needed to control the schedule of construction (pumping, placement, finishing and saw-cutting). This evolution is affected by the compatibility (o ...

46. Certification of SRM 114q: Part I
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 260-161
Published: 6/14/2006
Authors: Chiara F Ferraris, William F Guthrie, A Aviles, Robin K Haupt, Bruce S MacDonald
Abstract: The standard reference material (SRM) for fineness of cement, SRM 114, is an integral part of the calibration material routinely used in the cement industry to qualify cements. Being a powder, the main physical properties of cement, prior to hydratio ...

48. Feasibility on Using a Concrete Mixing Truck as a Rheometer
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7333
Published: 6/14/2006
Authors: S Amziane, Chiara F Ferraris, E Koehler
Abstract: Fresh concrete properties are crucial for the performance of the concrete in its hardened state. The measurement of workability is usually done using a simple slump test. This test, although widely used for almost 100 years, does not provide a full p ...

49. 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 ...

50. Particle Size Distribution by LASER Diffraction Spectrometry: Application to Cementitious Powders
Published: 4/19/2006
Authors: Chiara F Ferraris, Jeffrey W Bullard, Vincent A Hackley
Abstract: Particle size distribution (PSD) measurements are now routinely employed to characterize cement powders. A variety of techniques is available for this purpose. However, at present, an industry standard does not exist for PSD analysis, nor do uniform ...
