1. Wasserman, Kenneth, 1989-. Durability of an inorganic polymer concrete coating.

Degree: MS, Civil and Environmental Engineering, 2012, Rutgers University

The objective of the research p4rogram reported in this thesis is to evaluate the durability of an inorganic polymer composite coating exposed to freeze/thaw cycling and wet-dry cycling. Freeze/thaw cycling is performed following ASTM D6944-09 Standard Practice for Resistance of Cured Coatings to Thermal Cycling and wet/dry cycling is performed following guidelines set forth in a thesis written by Ronald Garon at Rutgers University. For both sets of experiments, four coating mixture proportions were evaluated. The variables were: silica/alumina ratio, mixing protocol using high shear and normal shear mixing, curing temperatures of 70 and 120 degrees Fahrenheit and use of nano size constituent materials. The mix with highest silica/alumina ratio was designated as Mix 1 and mixes with lower ratios were designated as Mix 2 and Mix 3. Mix 4 had nano silica particles. Four prisms were used for each variable including control that had no coating. The performance of the coating was evaluated using adhesion strength measured using: ASTM D7234 Test Method for Pull-Off Strength of Coatings on Concrete Using Portable Adhesion Testers. Tests were performed after every five consecutive cycles of thermal conditioning and six consecutive cycles of wet-dry exposure. Results from the thermal cycling and wet-dry testing demonstrate that all coating formulations are durable. The minimum adhesion strength was 300 psi even though a relatively weak base concrete surface was chosen for the study. The weak surface was chosen to simulate aged concrete surfaces present in actual field conditions. Due to the inherent nature of the test procedure the variation in test results is high. However, based on the test results, high shear mixer and high temperature curing are not recommended. As expected nano size constituent materials provide better performance.

3. Kong, Qiang. Sensitivity analysis for nonlinear structures.

Degree: PhD, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, 2008, Rutgers University

Sensitivity analysis of total strain energy for nonlinear structures is studied. Based on the law of energy-consistent, the effective strain and stress have been defined to provide scalar measures of the strain and stress for the two and three dimensional problems. The total strain energy is transformed in the form of the effective stain and stress. A closed-form approach for sensitivity calculation is derived. This method can also be extended to large displacement, large rotation problems using the 2nd Piola-Kirchhoff stress and Green-Langrange stress. The numerical examples with both geometric and material nonlinearity are presented to demonstrate the applications for the proposed sensitivity analysis calculation for strain energy. To evaluate the accuracy of the new method, numerical results obtained by the proposed method are compared with those from both analytical solution (for simple geometry) and finite differencing method. The closed-form solution of design sensitivity is also applied for reliability-based structural design. Specifically, the case study is performed for the problem for the uncertain applied force performed, and uncertain Young's modulus with nonlinear materials. The numerical results obtained by the close-formed solution are compared with those from Monte Carlo simulation.
