Topic: Building Materials
Published: 3/12/2008
Authors: Christopher C White, Kar Tean 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 ...

Topic: Building Materials
Published: 6/21/2010
Authors: Kar Tean 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 ...

3. Best Practice Guidelines for Structural Fire Resistance Design of Concrete and Steel Structures ** DRAFT FOR PUBLIC COMMENT (for Final Version see NIST TN 1681)**
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 ...

4. Certification of SRM 2492: Bingham Paste Mixture for Rheological Measurements
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 260-174Rev. 2012
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 6/7/2012
Authors: Chiara F Ferraris, Paul E Stutzman, William F Guthrie
Abstract: Rheological measurements are often performed using a rotational rheometer. In this type of rheometer, the tested fluid is sheared between two surfaces, one of which is rotating [1]. Usually, the angular velocity is imposed and the response of the mat ...

5. 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 ...

6. Development of Standard Reference Materials for Cement-Based Materials
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 5/13/2013
Authors: Chiara F Ferraris, Nicos Martys, William L George
Abstract: Rheometers are used to determine the rheological properties of materials ranging from mayonnaise to concrete. While rotational rheometers are routinely used for homogeneous materials such as mayonnaise, their usage for characterization of a granular ...

7. 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 Tean 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 ...

8. 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 ...

9. 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 ...

10. 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 ...
