Thermal characterisation of a lightweight mortar containing expanded perlite for underground insulation 

Perlite was added to mortar in order to determine if the resulting composite was more thermally insulating than conventional shotcrete. This study was conducted to determine if shotcrete in which sand has been replaced by perlite can potentially be used as thermal insulation for underground mines. It was found that the addition of perlite decreased the weight of the shotcrete, as well as the thermal conductivity and diffusivity, but decreased ...

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) to determine its effectiveness as an insulative material in conjunction with concrete for mining applications. A Thermal Constants Analyser TPS measured the thermal conductivity of the EPA composites using the transient plane source (TPS) method. Results showed that the addition ...
