1. 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 ...

2. 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. A Numerical Study of the Flow of Bingham-Like Fluids In Two Dimensional Vane And Cylinder Rheometers Using a Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamic (SPH) Based Method
Published: 4/7/2010
Authors: Huaning Zhu, Nicos Martys, Chiara F Ferraris, Daniel De Kee
Abstract: A vane rheometer is commonly used to determine the rheological properties of suspensions, colloids such as cement-based materials, many of which can be described as a Bingham fluid. Due to the complex flow geometry of the vane rheometer, relating mea ...

8. Virtual Testing of Concrete Transport Properties
Published: 10/1/2009
Authors: Dale P Bentz, Edward Joseph Garboczi, Nicos Martys, Kenneth Alan Snyder, W. S. Guthrie, Konstantinos Kyritsis, Narayanan Neithalath
Abstract: The transport properties of concrete are critical to its field performance. Commonly encountered degradation mechanisms are dependent on ionic diffusivity, sorptivity, and permeability. In this paper, virtual testing of two of these concrete transp ...

10. Virtual Cement and Concrete
Published: 9/1/2009
Authors: Jeffrey W Bullard, Chiara F Ferraris, Edward Joseph Garboczi, Nicos Martys, Paul E Stutzman, Judith Ellen Terrill
Abstract: Design and optimization of cement or concrete mixes typically is accomplished by intensive trial-and-error experimentation, primarily because the design space has many parameters and because interactions between these parameters are incompletely unde ...
