21. Measuring the Mechanical Properties of Nanocomposites: Potential Complications From the Mullins Effect
Christopher C White, Donald Lee Hunston
Quantification of mechanical properties, such as non-linear viscoelastic behavior, for filled elastomers (model nanocomposites) is complicated by the presence of the Mullins effect. This paper examines the potential complications due to the Mullins ...
22. Studies on the Effect of Movement During the Cure on the Mechanical Properties of Sealand
Christopher C White, Donald Lee Hunston, R S Williams
A novel sealant-testing device was used to con-tinuously monitor the mechanical properties of a one part silicone sealant for movement cycles initiated from 10 h to 168 h after sample creation. These cure times fall between the proposed RILEM TC-139 ...
23. Reliability-Based Method for Service Life Prediction of Materials
Christopher C White, Jonathan W. Martin, S F. Weber, L Shultz
Standard test methods, such as ASTM C719, evaluate sealant performance though threshold test measurements. This method and its derivatives do not offer reliable predictions of in-service performance. This presentation will detail efforts to move aw ...
