1. ADHESION TEST METHOD FOR SPRAYED APPLIED FIRE RESISTANT MATERIALS
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 ...

2. AN ADHESION TEST METHOD FOR SPRAY-APPLIED FIRE-RESISTIVE MATERIALS
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 6/21/2010
Authors: Kar T. 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. Alkali-Silica Reaction Degradation of Nuclear Power Plant Concrete Structures: A Scoping Study
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7937
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 3/11/2013
Authors: Kenneth Alan Snyder, Hai Sang Lew
Abstract: Alkali-silica reaction (ASR) is a concrete degradation phenomenon in which the alkalis that are typically found in concrete react with certain amorphous or micro-crystalline siliceous phases in the aggregate and, in the presence of moisture, form ...

5. 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 ...

6. 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 ...

7. Contact and Stress Anisotropies in Start Up Flows of Collodial Suspensions
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 9/11/2009
Authors: Nicos Martys, William L George, Didier Lootens, Pascal Hebraud
Abstract: Spatio-temporal correlations in start-up flows of attractive colloids are explored by numerical simulations. The suspension is first allowed to flocculate during a time tw, then the stress necessary to induce its flow is computed. Whereas at low vol ...

8. 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 ...

9. Development of Standard Reference Materials for Cement-Based Materials
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 1/6/2014
Authors: Chiara F Ferraris, Nicos Martys, William L George
Abstract: Rotational rheometers are routinely used for homogeneous materials, but their usage for characterization of a granular fluid like concrete is a relatively new phenomenon. As measurements with rheometers can involve flow in a complex geometry, it is ...

10. 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 ...
