Estimation of the thermal properties of hardened cement paste on the basis of guarded heat flow meter measurements

A new analysis method based on the guarded heat flow meter apparatus is proposed to measure the thermal properties of cement-based pastes in a hydrated form. In a steady state, a specimen with 0.4 water-to-cement ratio was found to have a thermal conductivity and a thermal ...

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 ...

Thermal probe technology for buildings: the transition from laboratory to field measurements

This article describes an attempt to modify the transient line source probe to be useful in making in-situ measurements in the field. The field of construction, as well as many others would benefit if a new thermal probe could be applied to uncontrolled environments. Three ...

Comparative study of the mechanical and thermal properties of lightweight cementitious composites

A comparative study was conducted on the properties of lightweight cementitious composites (LWCCs) mixed with four types of filler particles; EPS beads, dry-expanded plastic microspheres, hollow glass microspheres, and fly ash cenospheres. Thermal conductivity was tested using the transient plane source method. Results showed that ...

Experimental study on anti-icing and deicing performance of polyurethane concrete as road surface layer

Deicing and anti-icing performance of an innovative polyurethane pavement surface layer that replaces asphalt binder was studied. Thermal properties of polyurethane concrete and asphalt concrete were measured using a Thermal Constants Analyzer with transient plane source (TPS) method. Results found that polyurethane concrete had similar ...
