Lightweight clay-based concretes formulated withwood aggregates: hygrothermal behaviour

Insulating materials were made from recycled clay waste using technologies developed by the author were tested for their thermal conductivity using the transient line source technique over a temperature range of 0-60°C. The clay used was mainly composed of kaolinite. A weight reduction was obtained by using wood aggregates. Different weight percentages of wood aggregates (0, 25, 30, 40, 50%) and the thermal conductivity curves are ...

An inter-comparison of a steady-state and transient methods for measuring the thermal conductivity of thin specimens of masonry materials

The aim of this study was to determine whether steady-state methods were better at measuring thermal conductivities of oven-fired clay masonry materials than transient methods, and vice versa. The Transient Plane Source (TPS) Method was tested, and when the results were compared with the other transient methods, there was an agreement of better than +/-3%. Overall, the thermal conductivity values recorded for the transient methods were higher than when the ...

Facile preparation of fracture-free pectin/clay aerogel monoliths

Clay aerogels are typically used for insulation, filtration and absorption, and are typically favored because of their eco-friendly nature, low density and high porosity. Unfortunately, these aerogels are limiting due to their relatively high fragility. Researchers in this study aimed to create fracture-free pectin/clay aerogel monoliths. In this process, water was used as the solvent and montmorillonite as the solute. Morphologies, thermal stability and conductivity of the monoliths were ...

Effect of dispersion capability of organoclay on cellular structure and physical properties of PMMA/clay nanocomposite foams

The authors prepared PMMA/clay composites by the in situ bulk polymerization method. The prepared composites were characterized by FT-IR, WAXRD, SEM, TEM, DMA and the transient plane source (TPS) technique to measure thermal conductivity. Not only were the thermal properties of the composites studied, but physical and chemical properties as well....
