11. 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 ...

12. 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 ...

14. 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 ...

15. 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 %. ...

16. Hydrated Phases in Blended Cement Systems and Synthetic Saltstone Grouts
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7947
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 6/10/2013
Authors: Kenneth Alan Snyder, Paul E Stutzman
Abstract: A blended binder system (10 % portland cement, 45 % fly ash, and 45 % slag) is characterized as part of a broader study of its long-term effectiveness in stabilizing treated salt waste at the Savannah River Site. The binder system is reproduced in t ...

17. 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 ...

18. 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. ...

19. 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 ...

20. 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 ...
