71. 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 ...

72. 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 ...

73. 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 ...

74. 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 ...

75. 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, Leslie 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 ...

76. 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 ...

77. 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 ...

78. 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 ...

79. Concrete Mixing Methods and Concrete Mixers: State of the Art
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Published: 4/1/2001
Author: Chiara F Ferraris
Abstract: The performance of concrete is determined by its microstructure. Its microstructure, in turn, is determined by its composition, its curing conditions, and also by the mixing method used to process the concrete. This paper gives an overview of the var ...

80. The Influence of Mineral Admixtures on the Rheology of Cement Paste and Concrete
Published: 2/1/2001
Authors: Chiara F Ferraris, K H Obla, R Hill
Abstract: Rheological tests on cement paste were used to successfully select the type and dosage of mineral admixtures that improved concrete workability. Among the six different mineral admixtures tested, the ultra fine fly ash (UFFA), was determined to give ...
