Numerical simulation of heat and mass transport during hydration of Portland cement mortar in semi-adiabatic and steam curing conditions

A numerical model is developed to describe the thermal conductivity, hydration, and moisture content of Portland cement mortar specimens. In order to develop the model, the thermal conductivity and specific heat of the mortar specimens were measured using the transient plane source method. The model ...

Effect of a micro-copolymer addition on the thermal conductivity of fly ash mortars

A Portland cement-based composite was made using a copolymer as one of the ingredients, and the potential of the composite for the production of non-structural masonry systems was evaluated. It was found that the composite had a similar performance to that of commercial cellular concretes. ...

Incorporation of Phase Change Materials in Cementitious Systems via Fine Lightweight Aggregate

The incorporation of phase change materials (PCMs) into concrete bridge decks shows promise as a method of decreasing freeze/thaw cycling in bridge decks. The authors have conducted a study to determine the best carrier to be used for the incorporation of PCMs into concrete, ...

A slug calorimeter for evaluating the thermal performance of fire resistive materials

An equation for determining the effective thermal conductivity of fire resistive materials using a slug calorimeter was developed, and effective thermal conductivities were measured during heating and cooling cycles of these materials. The obtained values were compared to those obtained through measurements using the hot ...

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 ...
