An accelerated exposure and testing apparatus for building joint sealants

October 30, 2013
Christopher C. White, Donald L. Hunston, Kar T. Tan, John W. Hettenhouser, Jason D. Garver
The design, fabrication and implementation of a computer-controlled exposure and testing apparatus for building joint sealants are described in this paper. This apparatus is unique in its ability to independently control and monitor temperature, relative

Indentation device for in situ Raman spectroscopic and optical studies

December 12, 2012
Yvonne B. Gerbig, Chris A. Michaels, Aaron M. Forster, John W. Hettenhouser, Walter E. Byrd, Dylan J. Morris, Robert F. Cook
Instrumented indentation is a widely used technique to study the mechanical behavior of materials at small length scales and thus has been exploited in particular for metals, ceramics, glasses, and polymers. Mechanical tests of bulk materials, microscopic

Fate of nanoparticles during life cycle of polymer nanocomposites

July 6, 2011
Tinh Nguyen, Bastien T. Pellegrin, Coralie Bernard, Xiaohong Gu, Justin M. Gorham, Paul E. Stutzman, Deborah S. Jacobs, Walter E. Byrd, John W. Hettenhouser, Joannie W. Chin
Nanoparticles are increasingly used in consumer and structural polymeric products to enhance a variety of properties. Under the influences of environmental factors (e.g., ultraviolet, moisture, temperature) and mechanical actions (e.g., scratching
