31. Reliability-Based Method for Service Life Prediction of Materials
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 9/17/2003
Authors: Christopher C White, Jonathan W. (Jonathan W.) Martin, S F Weber, L Shultz
Abstract: Standard test methods, such as ASTM C719, evaluate sealant performance though threshold test measurements. This method and its derivatives do not offer reliable predictions of in-service performance. This presentation will detail efforts to move aw ...

32. 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 ...

33. Roles of Adhesive and Interfacial Properties on Humidity-induced Failure
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 2/21/2010
Authors: Kar Tean 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 ...

35. Service Life Prediction for Sealants
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 9/29/2011
Authors: Christopher C White, Donald Lee Hunston, Kar Tean Tan, James J Filliben
Abstract: Previous industry consensus postulated that four elements of the weather: Temperature, Humidity, Ultraviolet Radiation, and Mechanical loading were responsible for the majority of the changes observed in sealants exposed to outdoor weathering. The N ...

36. Statistical Modeling Cement Heat of Hydration
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 9/15/2010
Author: Paul E Stutzman
Abstract: The heat of hydration of hydraulic cements results from the complex sets of phase dissolution and precipitation activity accompanying the addition of water to a cement. Heat of hydration is currently measured in one of two ways: 1) through an acid ...

37. 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 ...

38. The Economics of New-Technology Materials: A Case Study of FRP Bridge Decking
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5864
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 7/1/1996
Authors: M A Ehlen, Harold E. Marshall
Abstract: Many new materials are bing developed from polymers, metals, and ceramics. Industry is beginning to introduce some of these high-performance or new-technology materials in construction and manufacturing applications because the materials have advant ...

39. The Role of Service Life Prediction In Sustainability Determinations
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 2/14/2011
Authors: Christopher C White, Kar Tean 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 ...

40. Thermal Properties and Thermal Modeling of Ballistic Clay Box
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7840
Topic: Building Materials
Published: 12/30/2011
Authors: Dale P Bentz, Amanda Lattam Forster, Kirk D Rice, Michael A Riley
Abstract: A critical component of hard and soft body armor testing is the utilization of a clay block behind the component being evaluated. One of the performance metrics used to evaluate products is the penetration depth into the clay of an indentation ...
