1. Research Needs to Advance Concrete Pumping Technology
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Published: 4/10/2015
Authors: Chiara F Ferraris, Nicos Martys, Myoungsung Choi, Van Bui, Trey Hamilton, Didier Lootens
Abstract: With the increasing use of pumping to place concrete, the development and refinement of the industry practice to ensure successful concrete pumping is becoming an important need for the concrete construction industry. To date, research on concrete pu ...

2. Simulation Studies of Methods to Delay Corrosion and Increase Service Life for Cracked Concrete Exposed to Chlorides
Published: 2/18/2015
Authors: Scott Z Jones, Nicos Martys, Yang Lu, Dale P Bentz
Abstract: The ingress of chlorides in reinforced concrete leads to the onset of rebar corrosion and eventually compromises a structure‰s integrity. To extend its service life and improve safety, it is crucial to develop sound repair and rehabilitation stra ...

3. Real-World Considerations for Predicting Service Life of Steel-Reinforced Concrete Exposed to Chlorides
Published: 9/1/2014
Authors: Dale P Bentz, W. Spencer Guthrie, Scott Z Jones, Nicos Martys
Abstract: The prediction of concrete service life is of paramount importance for upgrading our nation‰s built infrastructure. Although computer models for predicting the service life of reinforced concrete exposed to chlorides (e.g., road salts) have been deve ...

4. Development of Standard Reference Materials for Cement-Based Materials
Published: 1/6/2014
Authors: Chiara F Ferraris, Nicos Martys, William L George
Abstract: Rotational rheometers are routinely used for homogeneous materials, but their usage for characterization of a granular fluid like concrete is a relatively new phenomenon. As measurements with rheometers can involve flow in a complex geometry, it is ...

5. Development of Standard Reference Materials for Cement-Based Materials
Published: 5/13/2013
Authors: Chiara F Ferraris, Nicos Martys, William L George
Abstract: Rheometers are used to determine the rheological properties of materials ranging from mayonnaise to concrete. While rotational rheometers are routinely used for homogeneous materials such as mayonnaise, their usage for characterization of a granular ...

6. 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 ...

7. 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 ...

8. 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 ...

9. Stress propagation in a colloidal suspension under shear
Published: 3/1/2012
Authors: William L George, Pascal Hebraud, Didier Lootens, Mouhamad Khalil, Nicos Martys
Abstract: The stress propagation in a concentrated attractive colloidal suspension, under shear, is studied using mumerical simulations. A novel way of describing the intercolloidal stress field is proposed and its spatial correlations are studied. An inertia ...
