481. Analysis of Construction Conditions Affecting the Structural Response of the Cooling Tower at Willow Island, West Virginia (NBS IR 80-2010)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 80-2010
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 7/30/1980
Authors: Hai Sang Lew, S. G. Fattal
Abstract: The initial investigation of the Willow Island cooling tower collapse (NBS IR 78-1578)established that the most probable cause of the collapse was the imposition of construction loads on the tower before the concrete had gained adequate strength. Th ...

483. Nanoparticle Release from Polymer Nanocomposites Used for Potable Water Infrastructure and Food Packaging: Current Progress & Beyond
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: Date unknown
Authors: Andrew Whelton, T.V. Duncan , J.L. Koontz , Tinh Nguyen
Abstract: Nanoparticle (NP) enhanced polymers have the potential to revolutionize food packaging and water pipe performance, though release from these materials has gone relatively unstudied. A literature review was conducted to identify potential NP release p ...
