1. 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 ...

2. Best Practices Guide for High-Volume Fly Ash Concretes: Assuring Properties and Performance
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1812
Published: 9/18/2013
Authors: Dale P Bentz, Chiara F Ferraris, Kenneth Alan Snyder
Abstract: A best practices guide is developed from a synthesis of recent research on high-volume fly ash (HVFA) concrete mixtures. These best practices can be applied by the concrete construction industry to achieve desired properties and ensure the (high) per ...

3. Application of physical and chemical characterization techniques to metallic powders
Published: 8/28/2013
Authors: Edward Joseph Garboczi, John A Slotwinski, Max A Peltz, Chiara F Ferraris, Stephanie S Watson, Paul E Stutzman
Abstract: Systematic studies have been done on two different powder materials used for additive manufacturing: stainless steel and cobalt-chrome. The characterization of these powders is important in NIST efforts to develop appropriate measurements and standa ...

4. Physical and chemical characterization techniques for metallic powders
Published: 8/28/2013
Authors: John A Slotwinski, Paul E Stutzman, Stephanie S Watson, Edward Joseph Garboczi, Max A Peltz, Chiara F Ferraris
Abstract: Systematic studies have been done on two different powder materials used for additive manufacturing: stainless steel and cobalt-chrome. An extensive array of characterization techniques were applied to these two powders. The physical techniques inclu ...

5. SRM 2492 RHEOMETER USER GUIDE FOR GAP VERIFICATION AND TEST PROTOCOL
Published: 7/17/2013
Authors: Chiara F Ferraris, Jussara Tanesi
Abstract: N/A

6. 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 ...

7. Development of a Reference Material for the Calibration of Cement Paste Rheometers
Published: 4/22/2013
Authors: Chiara F Ferraris, Paul E Stutzman, Zhuguo Li, Min-Hong Zhang
Abstract: Rheometers are usually calibrated using a standard reference oil. On the other hand the calibration of rheometer for paste or concrete cannot be calibrated using an oil as it is a Newtonian fluid, while the rheometers are designed to measure non-Newt ...

8. Identifying improved standardized tests for measuring cement particle size and surface area
Published: 4/1/2013
Authors: Chiara F Ferraris, Edward Joseph Garboczi
Abstract: The Blaine fineness (Blaine) of a cement powder is a single parameter that is meant to characterize the specific surface area of a cement, and is assumed to be linked to physical and mechanical properties such as strength, setting time, and rheology. ...

9. 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 ...
