21. Studies on the Effect of Movement During the Cure on the Mechanical Properties of Sealand
Christopher C White, Donald Lee Hunston, R S Williams
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 ...
22. The Role of Service Life Prediction
In Sustainability Determinations
Christopher C White, Kar T. Tan, Donald Lee Hunston
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 ...
23. Towards a Reference Polyurethane Foam and Bench Scale Test for Assessing Smoldering in Upholstered
Mauro Zammarano, Szabolcs Matko, William M Pitts, Douglas Matthew Fox, Rick D Davis
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 ...
