Thermo-mechanical properties of fibre reinforced cement-based foam exposed to sulphate 

This paper investigates the effect sulphate exposure has on the thermal conductivity and mechanical strength of low density cement based foams, with and without microfiber reinforcement. This was done by exposing these cement foams to sulfphate over 90 days. The compressive strength and flexural toughness displayed ...

Effect of the treatment of wood shavings on the physico-mechanical characteristics of wood sand concretes

The authors prepare two series of wood sand concretes by using two types of sand concretes (dune and river) and variable amounts of wood shavings in the mixture. The mechanical and thermal properties of the concretes were then studied, using the transient plane source (TPS) ...

Experimental Measurements of Thermal Conductivity of Wood Species in China: Effects of Density, Temperature, and Moisture Content

The authors selected 5 types of softwood species and 5 types of hardwood species that are commonly grown and used for construction in China for thermal analysis. Not only was thermal conductivity measured, but its dependence on moisture content, density and temperature of the wood samples was ...

Thermal conductivity of cement composites containing rubber waste particles: Experimental study and modelling

The authors of this article look to use shredded waste tires as a component of a cement composite in order to reuse the discarded material as well as improve the thermal properties of the composite. The TPS method was used in order to determine thermal ...

Heat transfer through glassfiber fabrics coated with silicone resin

In the building and construction industry today, weather resistant and flame resistant materials have become fundamental. As such, silicone coated materials have been intensively researched, as they increase a given materials resistivity to heat and flames. Due to complications and time constraints when testing coating ...
