This article summarizes thermal properties testing on granular salt that has been consolidated under a wide range of temperature, stress, and moisture conditions. Thermal property measurements were taken on four ...Read More
Concrete and sand that were replaced by coal bottom ash concrete were analyzed and compared for strength and heat conductivity. Thermal conductivity was measured using a Hot Disk TPS 2500S ...Read More
Thermal characterization of a lightweight mortar containing expanded perlite for underground insulation
The shotcrete technique is a method used to pneumatically spray concrete at mine openings to provide insulative working environments. This study tested the thermal conductivity of Expanded Perlite Aggregate (EPA) ...
