Amelioration of crushed brick - lime composites using nano-additives
Crushed brick is widely known as a pozzolanic additive for composite building materials. However, crushed brick - lime composites usually show high porosity, low compressive strength and slow reaction kinetics. In this ...
Testing the soundness of aggregates using different methodologies
This paper compares the European (EN) and US (ASTM) standard tests for the soundness of aggregates. The main purpose of the paper is to identify the differences between these two methods and to investigate the extent of ...
Application of the Sharp Front Model to capillary absorption in a vuggy limestone
The unusual pore size distribution and in particular the presence of large pores in certain construction materials, results in an anomalous sorptivity and a marked deviation from the standard t1/2 law. In this paper, we ...
Mechanical properties and durability performance of reinforced concrete containing fly ash
This study presents the effect of Greek fly ash as a partial replacement of cement, on the durability and mechanical resistance of reinforced concrete immersed in sodium chloride (NaCl) solution. The aforementioned additive ...
