11. HYDRATED PHASES IN BLENDED CEMENTITIOUS SYSTEMS FOR NUCLEAR INFRASTRUCTURE
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 10/15/2009
Authors: Kenneth Alan Snyder, Paul E Stutzman, Jacob Philip, David W. Esh
Abstract: The hydration products of varying proportions of portland cement, fly ash, ground granulated blast furnace slag, and silica fume in blended systems were identified and quantified. The proportion of portland cement varied from 100 % down to 10 %. ...

12. IDENTIFYING THE FLUID-TO-SOLID TRANSITION IN CEMENTITIOUS MATERIALS AT EARLY AGES USING ULTRASONIC WAVE VELOCITY AND COMPUTER SIMULATION
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 ...

13. Identifying improved standardized tests for measuring cement particle size and surface area
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 4/1/2013
Authors: Chiara F Ferraris, Edward Joseph Garboczi
Abstract: The Blaine fineness (Blaine) of a cement powder is a single parameter that is meant to characterize the specific surface area of a cement, and is assumed to be linked to physical and mechanical properties such as strength, setting time, and rheology. ...

14. 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 ...

15. Mapping Heterogeneity in NanoTiO2/Polymer Coatings Using Confocal Microscopy and Depth Sensing Indentation
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 10/14/2009
Author: Li Piin Sung
Abstract: The purpose of this study is to develop relevant metrology to measure the appropriate structure-property relationship at a proper length scale to understand the interplay between nanoparticle and polymeric matrix. In this paper, we present the prelim ...

17. Measurement of yield stress for concentrated suspensions using a plate device
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 1/1/2010
Authors: Min-Hong Zhang, Chiara F Ferraris, Huaning Zhu, Vincent Picandet, Max A Peltz, Paul E Stutzman, Daniel De Kee
Abstract: Slump has often been correlated with the yield stress of concrete as defined by the Bingham model. The discussion is still open as to what the yield stress value actually is and how to measure the yield stress of a suspension in general and for a cem ...

18. Measuring Photocatalytic Response of Metal Oxide Fillers in Polymeric Films Using Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Spectroscopy
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 3/18/2009
Authors: Stephanie S Watson, I-Hsiang Tseng
Abstract: Metal oxide fillers, such as titanium dioxide (TiO2), are heavily utilized in polymeric coatings and plastics for opacification, pigmentation, and mechanical enhancement. It is well known that the photoreactivity of TiO2 can contribute to the degrada ...

19. 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 ...

20. Mechanisms of Moisture Attack in Adhesive bonds Exposed to High Humidity
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 7/23/2008
Authors: Kar Tean 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 ...
