1. ELEVATED TEMPERATURE ADHESION TESTING OF SPRAY-APPLIED FIRE-RESISTIVE MATERIALS
Published: 5/13/2015
Authors: Christopher C White, Kar T. Tan, Donald Lee Hunston, Walter Eric Byrd
Abstract: Effective fire protection of steel can be fully realized when spray-applied fire resistive materials (SFRMs) are bonded sufficiently to structural steel during the event of fire. The adhesion mechanisms and characterization at elevated temperatures, ...

2. MECHANISMS OF CRITICALITY IN ENVIRONMENTAL ADHESION LOSS
Published: 5/13/2015
Authors: Christopher C White, Kar T. Tan, Donald Lee Hunston, Kristen L Steffens, Deborah L Stanley, Bulent Akgun, Vogt D Bryan
Abstract: Moisture attack on adhesive joints is a long-standing scientific and engineering problem. A particularly interesting observation is that when the moisture level in certain systems exceeds a critical concentration, the bonded joint shows a dramatic lo ...

3. Prediction of Sealant Modulus Change due to Outdoor Weathering
Published: 5/13/2015
Authors: Christopher C White, Kar T. Tan, Donald Lee Hunston, Adam L Pintar, James J Filliben
Abstract: An empirically-based model has been created to predict the change in modulus for a sealant exposed to outdoor weathering. The underlying high precision data supporting this model was obtained using the NIST SPHERE (Simulated Photo degradation by Hi ...

4. IMPACT OF ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS ON POLYMERIC FILMS USED IN PROTECTIVE GLAZING SYSTEMS
Published: 3/11/2015
Authors: Christopher C White, Kar T. Tan, Donald Lee Hunston, Aaron M Forster, Deborah L Stanley
Abstract: Accelerated and natural aging of safety films used in protective glazing systems was investigated by the use of Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy and tensile tests. Accelerated conditions involved simult ...

5. Role of salt on adhesion of an epoxy/aluminium (oxide) interface in aqueous environments
Published: 2/16/2014
Authors: Christopher C White, Kar T. Tan, Donald Lee Hunston, Justin M Gorham, Aaron M Forster, Vogt D Bryan
Abstract: The durability of adhesive joints in hostile environments is a major area of concern in structural adhesive bonding. Therefore, understanding the mechanics and mechanisms of degradation of adhesive joints is a key factor for more extensive use in fut ...

6. An accelerated exposure and testing apparatus for building joint sealants
Published: 10/30/2013
Authors: Christopher C White, Donald Lee Hunston, Kar T. Tan, John W Hettenhouser, Jason D. Garver
Abstract: The design, fabrication and implementation of a computer-controlled exposure and testing apparatus for building joint sealants are described in this paper. This apparatus is unique in its ability to independently control and monitor temperature, rela ...

7. Statistical Prediction of Sealant Modulus Change due to Outdoor Weathering
Published: 10/17/2013
Authors: Christopher C White, Kar T. Tan, Donald Lee Hunston, Adam L Pintar, James J Filliben
Abstract: Recently a statistically based model has been created to predict the change in modulus for a sealant exposed to outdoor weathering. The underlying high precision data supporting this model was obtained using the NIST SPHERE (Simulated Photo degrada ...

8. Service Life Prediction for Sealants
Published: 8/27/2012
Authors: Christopher C White, Donald Lee Hunston, Kar T. Tan
Abstract: Previous industry consensus postulated that four elements of the weather: Temperature, Humidity, Ultraviolet Radiation, and Mechanical loading were responsible for the majority of the changes observed in sealants exposed to outdoor weathering. The N ...

9. A systematic approach to the study of accelerated weathering in building joint sealants
Published: 5/1/2012
Authors: Christopher C White, Donald Lee Hunston, Kar T. Tan, James J Filliben
Abstract: An accurate service life prediction model is urgently needed for building joint sealants to reduce the enormous cost associated with long-term field weathering. A stepping stone to the success of this effort is the precise control of environmental va ...

10. Transitory Temperatures of Organic-Film Coated Specimens under Outdoor Exposure
Published: 3/2/2012
Authors: William C. Thomas, Christopher C White, Walter Eric Byrd
Abstract: A mathematical model is presented and validated for predicting the temperature of thin polymeric films bonded to substrate materials. The National Institute of Standards and Technology provided specimen temperature and simultaneous weather data for t ...
