21. 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 ...

23. 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 ...

24. 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 ...

25. 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 ...

26. Reliability-Based Method for Service Life Prediction of Materials
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 9/17/2003
Authors: Christopher C White, Jonathan W. Martin, S F. Weber, L Shultz
Abstract: 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 ...
