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 obtained by using wood aggregates. Different weight percentages of wood aggregates (0, 25, 30, 40, 50%) and the thermal conductivity curves are ...

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) technique. The addition of wood shavings to the sand concrete mix improved the strength of the concretes, and didn't have much of an effect on ...
