Microstructure and Thermal Conductivity of Hydrated Calcium Silicate Board Materials

Two calcium silicate boards of different densities, porosities and pore size were analyzed for their thermal properties, specifically thermal conductivity. The boards were heated from room temperature to 400°C and the thermal conductivity was monitored during this time. A separate experiment 'aged' the boards first by heating at 1000°C for 4 hours before testing the thermal conductivity from room temperature to 400°C once again. The experimental results were compared with three ...

Transient plane source measurements of the thermal properties of hydrating cement pastes

Since cracking in concrete is usually caused by thermal processes, relevant thermophysical properties such as heat capacity and thermal conductivity are important. This article details the measurement of thermal conductivity and heat capacity using the transient plane source method of two different (0.3 and 0.4) water-to-cement (w/c) ratio hydrated cement pastes. These thermophysical properties are measured during the initial application of the cement as well as over a period of 28 days. ...
