22. 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 ...

23. 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 ...

24. 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 ...

25. 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 ...
