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 ...

Mechanical and thermal performance of concrete and mortar cellular materials containing plastic waste

The expanding production of polymeric materials is causing plastic waste to become a growing concern. This study aimed to fabricate cement and mortar composites that contained plastic in an attempt to extend the life of non-reusable plastics. The thermal conductivity of the composite material was ...

The use of slag stone concrete to improve the thermal performance of light steel buildings

The purpose of this article was to investigate the thermal performance of light steel structures. Responsible and sustainable building practices are becoming the norm, and light steel can provide a good alternative to other construction materials. However, it is important that the finished building has ...
