Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7570
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 2/4/2009
Author: Long Thanh Phan
Abstract: ** DRAFT FOR PUBLIC COMMENT (for Final Version see NIST TN 1681) ** This document is intended to provide practicing engineers and building code officials with a technical resource that contains the current best practice for fire-resistant design of ...

Topic: Building Materials
Published: 2/1/2009
Authors: G Sant, Dale P Bentz, W Weiss
Abstract: Assessing the fluid-to-solid transition in cementitious systems at early-ages is crucial for scheduling construction operations, determining when laboratory testing can begin, and for assessing when computer simulations of shrinkage stress should beg ...

33. Etude de la mesure de la contrainte seuil l aide d une plaque mobile : application aux p tes de ciment
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 10/1/2008
Authors: Vincent Picandet, Chiara F Ferraris
Abstract: Un dispositif de conception assez simple a été développé pour mesurer directement le seuil de cisaillement de diverses suspensions concentrées. Il consiste en une plaque immergée verticalement dans le mat&eac ...

34. Elastic Modulus Characterization of Nanocomposite Latex Coatings
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 9/24/2008
Authors: Aaron M Forster, Stephanie S Watson, Jonathan White
Abstract: The elastic modulus of a polystyrene-butyl acrylate latex coating was measured using three different techniques: instrumented indentation, dynamic mechanical analysis, and tensile testing. The coating was formulated with 25 nm and 250 nm diameter Ti ...

35. Characterizing the Non-Linear Viscoelastic Properties of Sealant Including the Mullins Effect
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 9/23/2008
Authors: Christopher C White, Donald Lee Hunston
Abstract: Quantification of the mechanical properties, such as the non-linear viscoelastic behavior, for a cured sealant is complicated by the presence of the Mullins Effect. The Mullins Effect, commonly observed in elastomers, refers to an observed increase ...

36. Mechanisms of Moisture Attack in Adhesive bonds Exposed to High Humidity
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 7/23/2008
Authors: Kar T. Tan, Christopher C White, Cyril Clerici, Donald Lee Hunston, Bryan D. Vogt, Sushil K. Satija, Joshua E. Goldman, Kristen L Steffens
Abstract: Studies have show that certain adhesive joints exhibit a dramatic loss of strength when exposed to humidities above a certain critical value. Although much is know about this effect, questions still exist. This study combines neutron reflectivity e ...

37. Interfacial Characterization of Multiple Layer Coatings on Thermoplastic Olefins (TPO)
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 5/30/2008
Authors: Aaron M Forster, Chris A Michaels, Justin Lucas, Li Piin Sung
Abstract: Thermoplastic olefins (TPO) have made significant inroads as polymeric materials for interior and exterior automotive parts. Spray applied chlorinated polyolefins (CPO) are often used to improve paint adhesion to the low surface energy TPO substrate ...

Topic: Building Materials
Published: 3/12/2008
Authors: Christopher C White, Kar T. Tan, Donald Lee Hunston
Abstract: Fire resistive materials are exceptional at providing an effective thermal barrier to structural steel from the heat flux from a fire, provided it is in close proximity to the steel during the fire event. The adhesion of the fire resistive materials ...

39. Measuring the Mechanical Properties of Nanocomposites: Potential Complications From the Mullins Effect
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 9/20/2006
Authors: Christopher C White, Donald Lee Hunston
Abstract: 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 ...

40. Studies on the Effect of Movement During the Cure on the Mechanical Properties of Sealand
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 2/8/2004
Authors: Christopher C White, Donald Lee Hunston, R S Williams
Abstract: 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 ...
