Increasing the Service Life of Bridge Decks by Incorporating Phase-Change Materials to Reduce Freeze-Thaw Cycles

The effects of incorporating phase change materials (PCMs) into concrete on the potential service lives of bridges were investigated. It was determined that PCMs could potentially be used in the future to reduce the effects of freeze-thaw cycles on bridges, but more work needed to ...

Thermal Properties and Thermal Modeling of Ballistic Clay Box

In order to test the protective capabilities of body armor, a clay box is placed behind the armor during testing and the penetration depth into the clay is measured after firing. Procedures for the preparation of the Plastilina clay used to make these boxes require ...

Thermal properties of high-volume fly ash mortars and concretes

In this study, three series of high-volume fly ash (HVFA) mortars and concretes were studied using the transient plane source (TPS) technique. Each series of sample contained varying weight % of fly ash from 0 to 75%. The three sample sets were prepared by different laboratories and the ...

Combination of Transient Plane Source and Slug Calorimeter Measurements to Estimate the Thermal Properties of Fire Resistive Materials

Using a combination of transient plane source (TPS) technique and slug calorimetry, 4 commercially available fire resistive materials (FRMs) are studied from room temperature to 1000°C. The materials studied in this report are two gypsum-based and two calcium-silicate based materials. These materials are heterogeneous and thus ...


Microstructure and Thermal Conductivity of Hydrated Calcium Silicate Board Materials

Two calcium silicate boards of different densities, porosities and pore size were analyzed for their thermal properties, specifically thermal conductivity. The boards were heated from room temperature to 400°C and the thermal conductivity was monitored during this time. A separate experiment 'aged' the boards first ...
