Topic: Building Materials
Published: 6/21/2010
Authors: Kar T. Tan, Christopher C White, Donald Lee Hunston
Abstract: Adhesion of spray-applied fire-resistive materials (SFRMs) to steel structures is critical in enabling the capacity of a building to remain functional for a specific length of time during a fire for life safety and fire department assess. Empirical t ...

22. Roles of Adhesive and Interfacial Properties on Humidity-induced Failure
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 2/21/2010
Authors: Kar T. Tan, Christopher C White, Donald Lee Hunston, Kristen L Steffens, Hatlee Timothy, Kristen Hamilton, Vogt D Bryan
Abstract: Adhesion loss due to moisture is a fundamental problem in a large diversity of industries ranging from microelectronics and automotive to aerospace. This study investigates the durability of model adhesive joints consisting of a homologous series of ...

23. Measurement of yield stress for concentrated suspensions using a plate device
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 1/1/2010
Authors: Min-Hong Zhang, Chiara F Ferraris, Huaning Zhu, Vincent Picandet, Max A Peltz, Paul E Stutzman, Daniel De Kee
Abstract: Slump has often been correlated with the yield stress of concrete as defined by the Bingham model. The discussion is still open as to what the yield stress value actually is and how to measure the yield stress of a suspension in general and for a cem ...

Topic: Building Materials
Published: 10/15/2009
Authors: Kenneth Alan Snyder, Paul E Stutzman, Jacob Philip, David W. Esh
Abstract: The hydration products of varying proportions of portland cement, fly ash, ground granulated blast furnace slag, and silica fume in blended systems were identified and quantified. The proportion of portland cement varied from 100 % down to 10 %. ...

25. Mapping Heterogeneity in NanoTiO2/Polymer Coatings Using Confocal Microscopy and Depth Sensing Indentation
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 10/14/2009
Author: Li Piin Sung
Abstract: The purpose of this study is to develop relevant metrology to measure the appropriate structure-property relationship at a proper length scale to understand the interplay between nanoparticle and polymeric matrix. In this paper, we present the prelim ...

26. Virtual Cement and Concrete Testing Laboratory for Quality Testing and Sustainability of Concrete
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 10/1/2009
Authors: Jeffrey W Bullard, Paul E Stutzman, Luis M. Ordonez-Belloc, Edward Joseph Garboczi, Dale P Bentz
Abstract: The NIST-Industry Virtual Cement and Concrete Testing Laboratory (VCCTL) Consortium has developed an integrated software package for performing simulations of a number of engineering test measurements, including isothermal calorimetry, adiabatic ...

27. Contact and Stress Anisotropies in Start Up Flows of Collodial Suspensions
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 9/11/2009
Authors: Nicos Martys, William L George, Didier Lootens, Pascal Hebraud
Abstract: Spatio-temporal correlations in start-up flows of attractive colloids are explored by numerical simulations. The suspension is first allowed to flocculate during a time tw, then the stress necessary to induce its flow is computed. Whereas at low vol ...

28. Effect of Nano-Silica Fillers on Surface Morphology and Mechanical Properties of Polymer-Silica Composites
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 8/20/2009
Authors: Li Piin Sung, Dongmei Zhe, Aaron M Forster, Peter Krommenhoek, Nancy J Lin, Sheng Lin-Gibson
Abstract: Investigation on the effect of nano-silica on the effect of nano-silica on the surface morphology and mechanical properties has been carried out on two-dimensional (2D) gradient polymer-silica composite samples varied in chemical composition (e.g., f ...

29. Measuring Photocatalytic Response of Metal Oxide Fillers in Polymeric Films Using Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Spectroscopy
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 3/18/2009
Authors: Stephanie S Watson, I-Hsiang Tseng
Abstract: Metal oxide fillers, such as titanium dioxide (TiO2), are heavily utilized in polymeric coatings and plastics for opacification, pigmentation, and mechanical enhancement. It is well known that the photoreactivity of TiO2 can contribute to the degrada ...

30. Effect of Strain on the Modulus of Sealants Exposed to the Outdoors
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 3/11/2009
Authors: Christopher C White, Donald Lee Hunston, Kar T. Tan
Abstract: The effects of applied strain on sealants exposed to outdoor weathering were examined for two sealant formulations, sealants A and C. Both static and dynamic strain was applied to the sealants during the summer in a Gaithersburg, MD-outdoor location ...
