61. Acoustophoretic Characterization of Cement Suspensions
Published: 11/1/2002
Authors: Robert J Flatt, Chiara F Ferraris
Abstract: Acoustophoresis has been used to study the evolution of the surface potential of hydrating cement suspensions because it is potentially capable of measuring zeta potentials of cement suspensions at concentrations high enough not to modify ion/particl ...

62. Simulation of SCC Flow
Published: 11/1/2002
Authors: Nicos Martys, Chiara F Ferraris
Abstract: Predicting the rheological properties of concrete is essential for its optimal use in situations such as flow between rebars. The aggregate gradation and shape, as well as the rheological properties of the mortar or cement paste will affect the flow ...

63. Analysis of the ASTM Round-Robin Test on Particle Size Distribution of Portland Cement: Phase I
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6883
Published: 5/1/2002
Authors: Chiara F Ferraris, Vincent A Hackley, A Aviles, C E Buchanan
Abstract: Particle size distribution (PSD) is an essential property of cement. The only standard method to measure the PSD of cement, namely ASTM C115, is limited in scope; this standard describes a method for determining fineness with a lower size detection l ...

64. Service Life Prediction Based on Sorptivity for Highway Concrete Exposed to Sulfate Attack and Freeze-Thaw Conditions
Published: 3/1/2002
Authors: Dale P Bentz, M A Ehlen, Chiara F Ferraris, John A. Winpigler
Abstract: This user's guide describes the set of screens and an example analysis for CONCLIFE, user-friendly software for estimating the service life of concrete pavements and bridge decks exposed to sulfate attack and freeze-thaw deterioration. CONCLIFE uses ...

65. Fresh Concrete Rheology - Recent Developments
Published: 12/1/2001
Authors: Chiara F Ferraris, F De Larrard, Nicos Martys
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 high performance concretes. The following properties are related to fresh concrete: ease of placement and ...

66. De la Pate de Ciment au Beton: Modlisation et Mesures Exprimentales des Proprietes Rhologiques. [Cement Paste to the Concrete Modisation and Measure Experimental of the Properties Rheology.]
Published: 10/1/2001
Authors: Chiara F Ferraris, Nicos Martys
Abstract: The prediction of concrete rheological properties is essential for the correct use of the material. The composition of the concrete is nowadays complex. It is not limited to cement, aggregates and water but also includes admixtures and fillers. Ther ...

67. Comparison of Concrete Rheometers: International Tests at LCPC (Nantes, France) in October 2000
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Published: 9/5/2001
Authors: Chiara F Ferraris, L Brower, D Beaupre, F Chapdelaine, P Domone, E Koehler, L Shen, M Sonebi, L Struble, D Tepke, O Wallevik, J Wallevik
Abstract: The American Concrete Institute (ACI) sub-committee 236A, Workability of Fresh Concrete, upon its creation in fall 1999, immediately faced the task of determining appropriate methods to measure concrete workability. Using a material science-based a ...

68. Comparison of Concrete Rheometers: International Tests at LCPC (Nantes, France) in October 2000
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6819
Published: 9/1/2001
Authors: L Brower, Chiara F Ferraris
Abstract: The aim of the present project was to compare measurements from the five types of concrete rheometers to provide data to establish correlations among them. As a matter of fact, differences between the various rheometers were expected, due to the comp ...

69. Sorptivity-Based Service Life Predictions for Concrete Pavements
Published: 9/1/2001
Authors: Dale P Bentz, M A Ehlen, Chiara F Ferraris, Edward Joseph Garboczi
Abstract: The degradation of concrete pavements is often controlled by the transport of a deleterious species (chloride or sulfate ions, or water in the case of freeze/thaw) into the concrete. With this in mind, a three-year research project, funded by the Fe ...

70. NIST Recommended Practice Guide: The Use of Nomenclature in Dispersion Science and Technology
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 960-3
Published: 8/1/2001
Authors: Vincent A Hackley, Chiara F Ferraris
Abstract: This Special Publication is essentially a reprint of two NIST Special Publications, SP 945 and SP 946. This particular Practice Guide provides guidelines for the use of technical and scientific nomenclature related to ceramic dispersions.The use of n ...
