The influence of nanomaterials on the thermal resistance of cement-based composites – a review

Pawel, Sikora ; Abd Elrahman, Mohamed ; Stephan, Dietmar (2018-06-26)

Exposure to elevated temperatures has detrimental effects on the properties of cementitious composites, leading to irreversible changes, up to total failure. Various methods have been used to suppress the deterioration of concrete under elevated temperature conditions. Recently, nanomaterials have been introduced as admixtures, which decrease the thermal degradation of cement-based composites a...

Evaluation of the effects of crushed and expanded waste glass aggregates on the material properties of lightweight concrete using image-based approaches

Chung, Sang-Yeop ; Abd Elrahman, Mohamed ; Sikora, Pawel ; Rucinska, Teresa ; Horszczaruk, Elzbieta ; Stephan, Dietmar (2017-11-25)

Recently, the recycling of waste glass has become a worldwide issue in the reduction of waste and energy consumption. Waste glass can be utilized in construction materials, and understanding its effects on material properties is crucial in developing advanced materials. In this study, recycled crushed and expanded glasses are used as lightweight aggregates for concrete, and their relation to th...

Leaching of inorganic and organic substances from construction materials and their ecotoxicological impact

Märkl, Veronika (2018)

In the last few years a growing environmental awareness in the field of construction materials can be observed. This has been, and continues to be, exacerbated since the Construction Products Regulations entered into force in 2013. In general construction products are in direct contact with the surrounding environment such as groundwater and soil. Especially grouting materials that often contai...

Alkalisch aktivierte Systeme auf Basis von Hüttensandmehlen

Tänzer, Ricarda (2018)

Alternative Bindemittel besitzen ökonomische und ökologische Vorteile sowie eine Vielzahl an positiven Eigenschaften (hoher Widerstand gegen aggressive Medien, hohe Druckfestigkeit, hoher Frostwiderstand, geringe beziehungsweise schnelle Abgabe von Reaktionswärme, geringe Porosität oder hohe Temperaturbeständigkeit). Die Eigenschaften hängen aber maßgeblich von der Art des Bindemitteltyps ab. F...
