Preparation of Porous Mullite Ceramics Using Fly Ash Cenosphere as a Pore‐Forming Agent by Gelcasting Process

This article discusses the creation of a porous mullite ceramic through the incorporation of fly ash cenospheres (FAC) into mullite powder through the gelcasting process. Sintering temperature and the amount of FAC added were investigated as factors affecting density and strength. The authors found that ...

Understanding damage in polymer-bonded explosive composites

Three model polymer-bonded explosive compositions were prepared to determine the effects of damage on their mechanical and thermal properties. The composites were damaged in a controllable manner such that three different levels of damage could be produced, and the strain on the samples could be ...


The effects of oil palm shell volume fractions on thermal conductivity for insulation concrete 

The thermal properties of oil palm shell (OPS) are investigated to determine if it could be used as a lightweight aggregate for a concrete mixture. The thermal conductivity, diffusivity, and specific heat were all tested through a transient plane source (TPS) method. The thermal conductivity ...

High temperature thermal properties of vanadium steel 

The high temperature fire resistance of vanadium is not well documented, so its properties are usually approximated to the same as conventional structural steels. The goal of this study is to determine the properties that influence the fire resistance of structural steel, thermal conductivity, specific ...


Transport and mechanical properties of vapour grown carbon nanofibre/silicone composites

Silicone materials have high electrical and thermal insulation properties that are useful for engineering applications. In this study, vapour grown carbon nanofibers (VGCNF) were produced by two different methods and were added to silicone rubber to improve conductivity. A thermal constant analyser measured the thermal ...
