81. Estimating Uncertainties in Antenna Measurements
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 4/8/2013
Author: Michael H Francis
Abstract: We describe general methods of estimating uncertainties in antenna measurements. These include estimates based on theory (analysis1), simulation, and altering the measurement system (self-coparison tests). The important component sources of uncertain ...

83. Identifying improved standardized tests for measuring cement particle size and surface area
Topic: Building and Fire Research
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. ...

84. Simulating the Behavior of Restrained Steel Beams to Flame Impingement From Localized Fires
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 4/1/2013
Authors: Chao Zhang, Guo-Qiang Li, Usmani Asif
Abstract: Steel structures may be exposed to localized heating by ignition of the fire source nearby. Flame impingement from localized fire may lead to high temperatures in the exposed steel members, which may lead to structural collapse. This paper numerica ...
