Durability of Ternary Blended Concrete Incorporating Rice Husk Ash and Calcined Clay

Research on the combined substitution of supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) has already demonstrated that it might be one of the few viable options to produce low-carbon concrete at scale. This paper presents an experimental investigation on the performance and durability of rice husk ash (RHA) and calcined clay (CC) in ternary blended concrete exposed to chloride attacks under wet/dry cycles. ...

Nanostructured SnSe: hydrothermal synthesis and disorder-induced enhancement of thermoelectric properties at medium temperatures

Nanostructured SnSe was created using hydrothermal methods and sintering in an evacuated-and-encapsulated ampoule. The effects of the synthesis and thermoelectric properties of SnSe using hydrothermal synthesis at low temperatures followed by evacuating-and-encapsulating sintering were then further investigated to determine their viability. One of the investigations centered around determining the thermal conductivities of the samples. The anisotropy of the thermal conductivity of the pressed polycrystalline SnSe was measured using the transient ...

Thermoelectric properties of partly Sb- and Zn- substituted Ba8Ga16Ge30 clathrates

Clathrates are thermoelectric materials that are used in waste heat recovery applications. This study tested the thermophysical properties of the n-doped clathrate Ba8Ga16Ge30 after gallium (Ga) and germanium (Ge) substituted antimony (Sb) and zinc (Zn). A TPS instrument measured the thermal conductivity of n-Ba8Ga16Ge30 with the transient plane source (TPS) method. Results showed that for almost every sample, thermal conductivity decreased inversely to temperature, then increased ...

High-electrical-resistivity thermally-conductive phase change materials prepared by adding nanographitic fillers into paraffin

Pristine and modified exfoliated graphite nanoplatelets (xGnPs and M-xGnPs, respectively) were dispersed into a paraffin wax phase change material (PCM) in an effort to raise the thermal conductivity of the PCM. The addition of pure xGnPs would decrease the electrical resistivity of the composite PCM, and thus its potential for use in electrical devices would be limited due to safety concerns. To eliminate this issue, the M-xGnPs were prepared. Samples ...

Effects of Reaction Temperature on Thermoelectric Properties of p-Type Nanostructured Bi2−x Sb x Te3 Prepared Using Hydrothermal Method and Evacuated-and-Encapsulated Sintering

Bi2-xSbxTe3 thermoelectric materials, where x = 1.52 and 1.55 were prepared and evaluated for their thermoelectric properties. Three samples in total were prepared, two with x = 1.52 and 1.55 were synthesized at 140oC and one with x = 1.55 was synthesized at 160 oC. It was determined that the two samples synthesized at the higher temperature had lower resistivity than that which was synthesized at higher temperature. The figure of merit for the sample synthesized at 140oC, ...
