Brittle Matrix Composites 9

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 the papers. Various approaches to the material engineering problems are presented in the papers.

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

This paper presents the results from an experimental study on the behaviour of Reactive Powder Concretes (RPC) at high temperature. The exposure to high temperature is related to the potential risk of fire. A previous study has shown that RPC is prone to spalling in such circumstances and for this reason polypropylene fibres were used in RPC concrete to prevent this occurring. The addition of PP fibres reduces the risk of spalling due to an increase in permeability, however it

Construction industry like any other area of economic and social life undergoes continuous alterations and improvements in order to successfully comply with the requirements of sustainable development. Consumers demand more durable, less labour and service intensive materials at a competitive price. To meet these expectations numerous new composite materials have been developed over the last couple of decades, including cementitious materials modified by superabsorbent polymers (SAP). The paper presents part of the larger research project on the performance of cementitious

The aim of the paper was to show the important aspect of treating waste additives as the main way to achieve sustainable development in the concrete technology. The author considers the effects of minimizing the use of cement replacing it with waste additives, on the concrete durability. The depth of carbonation is adopted as the possible measure of durability. Results of accelerated and natural tests of carbonation progress for concrete with normal and fluidal fly ash, silica fume and blast

Fibre reinforced polymer-cement compositions for self-levelling flooring are studied. The individual and combined effects of dispersible polymer powder with properties of binder and superplasticiser, of various methylcelluloses, and of polypropylene fibre on effective viscosity of the mix and mechanical properties of the hardened mortar are evaluated and analysed. Used for analysis are multifactor experimental-statistical models built on the data obtained for 18 mixes (of the same workability) in the designed experiment and describing the fields of rheological model parameters, of strength,

More recent investigations on cellulose-cement composites predominantly deal with durability aspects, whereby use is made of accelerated weathering cycles as the main approach to establishing the deterioration mechanisms and the efficiency of treatment methods. As moisture transport is the main mechanism that leads to the deterioration of those composites, accelerated ageing tests are commonly based on wet-drying cycles with a combination of temperature and relative humidity (R.H.) variations. Both variables result in dimensional changes of the samples, leading to

The paper presents results of tests on self-compacting mixtures with the addition of steel fibres (Steel Fibre Reinforced Self-Compacting Concrete). Four types of steel fibres at 3 levels of the volume ratio are considered. The results include studies on samples belonging to classes of slump flow SF, classes of viscosity T500, and rheological tests. The studies were based on application of two rheometers for rheological properties of concrete mixtures - BT2 Rheometer and Viskomat XL. Additionally, a study of compressive strength

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

The main motivation for this work was the attempt to limit the rapid destruction of brittle high performance concrete UPC and, in consequence, to obtain SRCC (safe rope effect cement composite). In the high performance fiber reinforced cement composites HPFRC deflection and flexural strength are increased. The rope effect in HPFRC results in a highly deflected damaged specimen with multicracking effect and with post-peak load at bending exceeding that corresponding to the first crack, which enables to obtain cement composite

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

Ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) have proven to be useful for a wide range of applications because of properties such as their light weight, toughness and temperature resistance. Advances in ceramic matrix composites summarises key advances and types of processing of CMCs. After an introductory chapter, the first part of the book reviews types and processing of CMCs, covering processing, properties and applications. Chapters discuss nanoceramic matric composites, silicon carbide-containing alumina nanocomposites and advances in manufacture by various infiltration techniques including
