This article presents an experimental investigation on the influence of Methylhydroxyethylcellulose (MHEC) modified mortar on water absorption into tile and base substrate using Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) imaging. Addition of MHEC shifts the absorption behavior from homogeneous to inhomogeneous as a result of increased viscosity of pore...

In addition to the desired aesthetical properties, a coating is applied to protect against weathering. A coating prevents moisture accumulation in wood by reducing the water uptake into the wood by its barrier function. The studies in the coating permeability has gained interest with the shift towards waterborne coatings, which make coatings...

In this study a specialized high-temperature nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) setup is presented for measuring free moisture in monolithic refractory castables during one-sided heating (100–300 °C). This setup makes use of a high thermal-stability Birdcage-coil for measuring the quantitative moisture content at high-temperatures, while also...

An important reason to apply coatings on wood is to protect wood against moisture. As a result of regulations and ecological concerns, there has been a shift towards waterborne coatings, which make coatings intrinsically more sensitive to water. As a consequence of the higher sensitivity to water, the durability of both wood and coatings can be...

Knowledge on moisture transport in wood is important for understanding its utilization, durability and product quality. Moisture transport processes in wood can be studied by Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) imaging. By combining NMR imaging with relaxometry, the state of water within wood can be identified, i.e. water bound to the cell wall,...

High nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) fluxes from upstream agriculture threaten aquatic ecosystems in surface waters and estuaries, especially in areas characterized by high agricultural N and P inputs and densely drained catchments like the Netherlands. Controlled drainage has been recognized as an effective option to optimize soil moisture...

This study made an attempt to predict the temperature-dependent moisture diffusion of an epoxy molding compound with 3 different diffusion models: Fickian, dual stage and Langmuir diffusion. The Langmuir model provided the best prediction of the moisture diffusion when simulating the input experiments. Beyond the temperature range of the input...

Different types of aerosolization and deagglomeration testing systems exist for studying the properties of nanomaterial powders and their aerosols. However, results are dependent on the specific methods used. In order to have well-characterized aerosols, we require a better understanding of how system parameters and testing conditions influence...

Water permeation in inorganic moisture permeation barriers occurs through macroscale defects/pinholes and nanopores, the latter with size approaching the water kinetic diameter (0.27 nm). Both permeation paths can be identified by the calcium test, i.e., a time-consuming and expensive optical method for determining the water vapor transmission...

AMOLED displays using oxide TFTs and high-quality moisture barrier were fabricated on ultrathin, flexible plastic substrates to give maximum mechanical flexibility. Total display thickness is below 150μm, and repeated rollability at 1 cm roll radius has been demonstrated. Electrical/Mechanical characteristics and reliability of the flexible...

We explore the possibility of using remotely sensed soil moisture data and in situ discharge observations to calibrate a large-extent hydrological model. The model used is PCR-GLOBWB-MOD, which is a physically based and fully coupled groundwater-land surface model operating at a daily basis and having a resolution of 30 arc sec (about 1 km at...

The study presented in this paper is to investigate the possibility of using spaceborne remote sensing data for groundwater head prediction. Remotely-sensed soil moisture time series of SWI (Soil Water Index) derived from ERS (European Remote Sensing) scatterometers are used to predict groundwater head dynamics in the Rhine-Meuse basin, where...

The European Remote Sensing Soil Water Index (ERS SWI) fields, providing spatio-temporal soil moisture expressions, should be able to infer groundwater dynamics. In this study, we explore the possibility of using them to calibrate a coupled groundwater-land surface model. We apply a brute force calibration procedure by running several scenarios...

In daily life, people interact with textiles of different degrees of wetness, but little is known about the me-chanics of wetness perception. This paper describes an experiment with six conditions regarding haptic dis-crimination of the wetness of fabrics. Three materials were used: cotton wool, sponge-structured viscose and thin viscose. Two...

Inkjet printing is widely being researched as enabling technology for printed electronics; however, there are scarce publications concerning the reliability of inkjet-printed structures on different substrates. The reliability of such structures under high humidity and high temperature conditions is treated in this work. To do so, the adhesion...

Bio-inhibition of buildings and structures is an important issue. In many cases building materials have biocides added to prevent growth of micro-organisms. Growth of microorganisms on building materials has several negative effects; (1) Aesthetic damage, e.g. fungi, algae grow on the material, resulting in early replacement and high cleaning...

The suitability of using super heated steam (SHS) as an alternative to pre-frying in oil, to decrease the oil content of deep-fried battered foods while obtaining crispy crusts, is shown in this manuscript. Pre-treatment of the batters in SHS for 1, 2 and 3. min was compared to pre-frying with oil for 1. min. All samples were final fried with...
