Brittle Matrix Composites 10

The subjects of the symposia are on composite materials behaving as brittle, normal and special conditions of exploitation. Brittle matrix composites are applied in various domains and the series of symposia are closely related to their applications in civil engineering. In the last decades their importance is increasing along with their variety and the use of most advanced methods of testing. Papers include concretes, fibre concretes and ceramics, particularly their composition, microstructure and fracture processes. Various new and advanced engineering problems are presented in the papers.

The subjects of the symposia are on composite materials with matrices behaving as brittle in normal or special conditions. Brittle matrix composites are applied in various domains (civil engineering, mechanical equipment and machinery, vehicles, etc.) and in the last decades their importance is increasing together with their variety. Papers include: aggregate-binder composites (concretes, fibre concretes, rocks); sintered materials (ceramics); high strength composites with brittle matrices. In principle, the general problems of structures made of composite materials are not included in

Steel corrosion is a major problem with concrete structures. For concrete structures exposed to chlorides, once a critical chloride concentration is reached at the steel surface, corrosion starts to occur. For a given cover thickness, the corrosion initiation time depends on the chloride diffusivity. For different kinds of concrete, the diffusivity Do at the un-cracked state has been measured. However, in reinforced concrete design, concrete members are allowed to crack in tension. Once cracking occurs, chloride can also diffuse through

The International Symposium in Brittle Matrix Composites October 13-15, 2003 covers a wide spectrum of topics including cement based composites, ceramic composites and brittle polymer matrix composites. In the papers various topics and issues are considered such as: analytical and numerical studies related to the design of composites, prediction of behaviour and verification of strength and stability, testing methods, manufacturing processes and repair, environmental effects and durability assessment. The present volume of 55 papers proves that there are still many problems in

Aggregate occupies at least three-quarters of the volume of concrete, so its impact on concrete’s properties is large. The sieve curve traditionally defines the aggregate size range. Another essential property is grain shape. Both, size and shape influence workability and the mechanical and durability properties of concrete. On the other hand, the shape of cement particles plays also an important role in the hydration process due to surface dissolution in the hardening process. Additionally, grain dispersion, shape and size

This paper reviews the results of recent laboratory research studies focusing on the behavior of hybrid fiber Engineered Cementitious Composite (ECC) panels subjected to low- and high-velocity projectile impact. The reviewed laboratory studies include high-velocity (300-700m/s) small-size projectiles impact tests conducted on 0.30×0.17m hybrid fiber ECC prismatic panels of various thicknesses (representing a section of a door or wall), low-velocity large projectile impact tests conducted on both full scale hybrid fiber ECC blast/shelter panels (2.0×1.0×0.05-0.1m), and 1/3

Compared to concrete, the compressive strength is not a very important property of cement mortar. It is very important that mortar forms a complete, strong, and durable bond with the building material elements, because it is used as an adhesive and sealant material. The physical and mechanical properties of cement mortar, especially flexural strength, toughness, tensile strength, reduction of plastic as well as drying shrinkage, can be enhanced by the use of randomly dispersed fibres, such as steel, carbon or

The use of caleerous fly ash from brown coal combustion in Belchatow Power Plant in Poland as additive to concrete mix was studied. The strength and the resistance to chloride penetration into concrete was investigated at water to binder ratio from 0.45 to 0.60. Caleerous fly ash both in unprocessed form and grinded to specified specific surface was used for partial replacement of cement up to 30% of mass. To evaluate the concrete resistance to chloride ion penetration the standard method of determination

Concrete is one of the most widely used construction materials due to its excellent mechanical properties and relatively low cost. However, concrete is prone to crack formation. These cracks do not impair the structural integrity, but they endanger the durability of the structure as aggressive liquids and gasses may enter via these cracks and cause degradation. Therefore, crack repair is needed but these repair works increase the cost of concrete structures by 50 % as they are labour intensive and because the

The drying of cementitious materials is of interest in volume change (i.e., shrinkage) research. However, the movement of water due to drying and wetting also plays a significant role in many durability related problems (e.g., corrosion, alkali silica reactivity, freezing and thawing). Many factors can influence the drying and wetting process in concrete including: pore structure, environmental conditions, and liquid properties. This paper describes the influence of the liquid properties on the drying process. Specifically, this work examines

The electric resistance and thermoelectric properties of cement composites with addition of expanded graphite were. The expanded graphite was obtained from intercalated graphite by rapid heating in different conditions. The influence of thermal treatment on thermoelectric properties was measured. The cement pastes were prepared in the two different ways, either by mixing together expanded graphite and cement, or by rubbing compounds together in order to obtain smaller particles of graphite (even nanometric size) during mixing. The bulk density and electric

The results of research concerning flexural strength, work of fracture and compressive strength of basalt fibre reinforced cement mortars as well as basalt fibre resistance in alkaline environment are presented in the paper. Basalt fibres, 5mm and 12mm long, with the amount of 0.4kg/m3, 1kg/m3, 2kg/m3 were used as the reinforcement of 3, 7 and 28-day mortars. It was found that the addition of fibres caused the increase in flexural strength (up to 20%), the reduction in compressive strength (up

The influence of aggregate type on the compressive strength, the resistance to chloride penetration and the scaling resistance with de-icing salts of concrete made with blended cements with calcerous fly ash was investigated. The range of investigation included the air entrained concrete with water to cement ratio w/c=0.45 with the prototype blended cements containing the additives of calcerous fly ash, siliceous fly ash and ground granulated blast furnace slag. Concrete specimens were cured during first 3 days in water and

In the uniaxial tension test of concrete, inevitably some secondary flexures occur. However the characteristics of the secondary flexures are not well understood among others because of the complexity of performing the uniaxial tension test without the flexures. In this paper the uniaxial tension test in which secondary flexures are minimized, by a specially developed device, are compared to the tests where secondary flexures are left to develop freely. Experimental results and theoretical calculations are shown for the influence of
