21. Rheological Characterization of Flow Table Reference Material
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 4/29/2011
Authors: Chiara F Ferraris, Haleh Azari
Abstract: The flow table is a standardized test that is widely used to qualify a mortar to be tested for compressive strength and air content. It is also the only standard test to quantify a mortar workability property. Therefore, the calibration of this dev ...

22. Roles of Adhesive and Interfacial Properties on Humidity-induced Failure
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 2/21/2010
Authors: Kar T. Tan, Christopher C White, Donald Lee Hunston, Kristen L. Steffens, Hatlee Timothy, Kristen Hamilton, Vogt D Bryan
Abstract: Adhesion loss due to moisture is a fundamental problem in a large diversity of industries ranging from microelectronics and automotive to aerospace. This study investigates the durability of model adhesive joints consisting of a homologous series of ...

Abstract: N/A

24. 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 ...

25. The Role of Service Life Prediction In Sustainability Determinations
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 2/14/2011
Authors: Christopher C White, Kar T. Tan, Donald Lee Hunston
Abstract: Sustainability calculations are based on assumptions about the energy required to produce, transport place in-service items. A critical component of these calculations is the expected service life of the material, component or system. Estimates of t ...

26. Towards a Reference Polyurethane Foam and Bench Scale Test for Assessing Smoldering in Upholstered Furniture
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 12/8/2013
Authors: Mauro Zammarano, Szabolcs Matko, William M Pitts, Douglas Matthew Fox, Rick D Davis
Abstract: Smoldering poses a severe fire hazard due to the potentially lethal amount of toxic carbon monoxide released, and the possibility to reach flashover (through transition from smoldering to flaming) with heat sources otherwise too weak to directly ...
