1. A Photoconductivity Technique for the Assessment of Pigment Reactivity
Published: 11/19/2003
Authors: Joannie W Chin, S J Scierka, T Kim, Amanda Lattam Forster
Abstract: Large volumes of titanium dioxide (TiO2) are utilized each year in coatings, sealants, plastics and paper for opacification and pigmentation purposes. It is well known that the photoreactivity of TiO2 can contribute to the degradation of the materia ...

2. A State of the Art Report on the Durability Aspects of Fiber-Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Composites
Published: 7/1/2001
Authors: Joannie W Chin, V M Karbhari, D R Reynaud
Abstract: Although fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites are increasingly being used for the renewal of civil infrastructure, there are still some major questions related to the durability of these materials in a civil engineering environment. This concer ...

3. Accelerated UV Weathering Device Based on Integrating Sphere Technology
Published: 11/1/2003
Authors: Joannie W Chin, E Byrd, E Embree, Jason D. Garver, B Dickens, T Finn, Jonathan W. Martin
Abstract: An accelerated ultraviolet (UV) weathering device based on integrating sphere technology has been designed, fabricated, and implemented in weathering studies of polymers. This device has the capability of irradiating multiple speciments with exptreme ...

4. Accelerated Weathering of Firefighter Protective Clothing Containing Melamine Fiber Blends
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1751
Published: 8/14/2012
Authors: Shonali Nazare, Rick D Davis, Joannie W Chin
Abstract: In this study, environmentally stressed OS fabrics containing melamine fiber blends were evaluated for thermal and mechanical properties that are critical to the protective performance of firefighter turnout gear. Environmental stress factors ...

5. Accelerated Weathering of Firefighter Protective Clothing: Delineating the Impact of Thermal, Moisture, and Ultraviolet Light Exposures
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1746
Published: 6/27/2012
Authors: Rick D Davis, Shonali Nazare, Joannie W Chin
Abstract: Previously we quantified the chemical and mechanical deterioration of polyaramid and polybenzimidazole-based protective clothing fabrics that resulted from concurrent thermal, moisture, and simulated sunlight exposure. This paper reports on individu ...

6. Accelerated weathering of polyaramid and polybenzimidazole firefighter protective clothing fabrics
Published: 5/10/2010
Authors: Rick D Davis, Joannie W Chin, Chiao-Chi Lin, Sylvain H. Petit
Abstract: Exposure to simulated ultraviolet sunlight at 50 C and 50% relative humidity caused a significant deterioration in the mechanical performance of polyaramid and polyaramid/polybenzimidazole based outer shell fabrics used in firefighter jacket and p ...

7. Aging Effects on the Dynamic Tensile Response of Zylon Fibers
Report Number: 823037
Published: 6/4/2007
Authors: Richard L. Rhorer, Joannie W Chin, Amanda Lattam Forster, Weinong Wayne Chen, Bo Song, Xu Nie
Abstract: This paper reports on dynamic tests of fibers used in soft body armor. The type of fiber tested is poly(p-phenylene-2,6- benzobisoxaxole) (PBO), or brand name Zylon. Aged fibers were tested using a modified split Hopkinson pressure bar that loads the ...

8. Analysis of the Single-Fiber Fragmentation Test
Published: 1/1/1998
Authors: Tinh Nguyen, Joannie W Chin, Tze-Jer Chuang, S Lee
Abstract: An analysis of the single-fiber fragmentation test was investigated. An approximate solution for the stress fields of a fiber embedded in a polymer matrix of different elastic moduli was obtained by the Eshelby method. The fiber was modeled as a prol ...

9. Application of a Reliability-Based Methodology for Predicting the Outdoor Service Life of Polymers
Published: 5/1/2002
Authors: Joannie W Chin, Jonathan W. Martin, E Byrd, Tinh Nguyen, N Embree, J D Tate
Abstract: Organic polymers are a commercially important class of materials that are being increasingly used in outdoor applications such as paints, coatings, sealants, siding and roofing membranes, to name just a few. One of the most damaging elements in the ...

10. Characterization of Airborne Nanoparticle Released from Consumer Products
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1787
Published: 8/29/2013
Authors: Li Piin Sung, Joannie W Chin, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: This interim report summarizes research results to date under the FY2012 interagency agreement between CPSC and NIST to develop testing and measurement protocols for determining the quantities and properties of nanoparticles released from floorin ...
