11. Microscopy of Clinker and Hydraulic Cements
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 4/2/2012
Author: Paul E Stutzman
http://www.nist.gov/manuscript-publication-search.cfm?pub_id=907698

12. Flexible polyurethane foam with well characterized and reproducible smoldering
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 3/24/2012
Authors: Mauro Zammarano, Szabolcs Matko, Rick D Davis, Roland H. Kraemer
Abstract: Smoldering is a self-sustaining heterogeneous oxidation reaction that induces a slow, low temperature, flameless combustion.1 Flexible polyurethane foams (PUF) are particularly prone to smoldering due to their high air permeability and low density. I ...

13. Thermal Properties and Thermal Modeling of Ballistic Clay Box
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7840
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 12/30/2011
Authors: Dale P Bentz, Amanda Lattam Forster, Kirk D Rice, Michael A Riley
Abstract: A critical component of hard and soft body armor testing is the utilization of a clay block behind the component being evaluated. One of the performance metrics used to evaluate products is the penetration depth into the clay of an indentation ...

14. Service Life Prediction for Sealants
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 9/29/2011
Authors: Christopher C White, Donald Lee Hunston, Kar T. Tan, James J Filliben
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 ...

Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1704
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 8/15/2011
Authors: Chiara F Ferraris, Nicos Martys
Abstract: This report summarizes the results of the workshop ,Measurement Science Roadmap for Workability of Cementitious MaterialsŠ held on March 18, 2011 in Gaithersburg Maryland and sponsored by the National Institute of Standards and Technology with collab ...

16. Quantitative Characterization of Fly Ash Reactivity for use in Geopolymer Cements
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 6/15/2011
Author: Paul E Stutzman
Abstract: The ability to characterize the reactivity of fly ashes is an essential part of making use of this aluminosilicate-rich waste product in geopolymer binders. Most fly ash reactivity investigations only consider the bulk reactivity of the ash because ...

17. Rheological Characterization of Flow Table Reference Material
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 4/29/2011
Authors: Chiara F Ferraris, Haleh Azari
Abstract: The flow table is a standardized test that is widely used to qualify a mortar to be tested for compressive strength and air content. It is also the only standard test to quantify a mortar workability property. Therefore, the calibration of this dev ...

18. The Role of Service Life Prediction In Sustainability Determinations
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 2/14/2011
Authors: Christopher C White, Kar T. Tan, Donald Lee Hunston
Abstract: Sustainability calculations are based on assumptions about the energy required to produce, transport place in-service items. A critical component of these calculations is the expected service life of the material, component or system. Estimates of t ...

19. PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENTS INSIGHTS ON THE USE OF CEMENTS IN WASTE MANAGEMENT
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 11/7/2010
Authors: David W. Esh, Jacob Philip, Kenneth Alan Snyder
Abstract: The use of cementitious materials has been proposed in a variety of waste management systems because these materials can have a variety of desirable performance characteristics: hydraulic isolation, chemical isolation, structural stability. Cementit ...

20. Statistical Modeling Cement Heat of Hydration
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 9/15/2010
Author: Paul E Stutzman
Abstract: The heat of hydration of hydraulic cements results from the complex sets of phase dissolution and precipitation activity accompanying the addition of water to a cement. Heat of hydration is currently measured in one of two ways: 1) through an acid ...
