Autoclaved aerated concrete: experimental evaluation of its thermal properties at high temperatures

This article studied the thermal conductivity of samples of autoclaved aerated concrete with various densities at high temperatures in order to produce data that could be used to assess and predict the performance of buildings during a fire. The mica sensor was employed for high ...

Effect of Temperature on Thermal and Mechanical Properties of Steel Bolts

High-strength steel used in bolts was tested for its thermo-physical properties in order to determine how steel bolts would respond in a fire. It was determined that the thermal and mechanical properties of the steel were dependent on temperature, and that the thermal conductivity of ...

Measurement of Thermal Properties of Gypsum Board at Elevated Temperatures

An investigation was conducted to determine the thermal properties of different types of gypsum boards from the USA and Japan. The thermal conductivity and specific heat were determined at room temperature using the transient plane source technique. Measurements were first performed with the paper backing ...

Studying the effect of addition a composite of silanized Nano-Al2O3 and plasma treated polypropylene fibers on some physical and mechanical properties of heat cured PMMA denture base material

The authors have presented a method for the addition of alumina nanoparticles and polypropylene fibers to a poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) matrix. This composite material shows promise for use as denture base material. The composite material was subsequently subjected to a number of tests to ...


Mechanistic Approach to Structural Fire Modeling of Composites

A thermo-mechanical property model for composites subjected to fire loading conditions was developed for the purpose of reducing testing time for prediction of the performance of new materials. The thermal diffusivity and conductivity were used to describe the thermal property evolution. A micro-mechanics based model ...
