    Influence of Recycled Concrete Fine Powder on Durability of Cement Mortar

    Yadong Bian1, Xuan Qiu1, Jihui Zhao2,*, Zhong Li2, Jiana Ouyang2

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.20, No.1, pp. 45-58, 2024, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2023.029299

    Abstract In this paper, the durability of cement mortar prepared with a recycled-concrete fine powder (RFP) was examined; including the analysis of a variety of aspects, such as the carbonization, sulfate attack and chloride ion erosion resistance. The results indicate that the influence of RFP on these three aspects is different. The carbonization depth after 30 days and the chloride diffusion coefficient of mortar containing 10% RFP decreased by 13.3% and 28.19%. With a further increase in the RFP content, interconnected pores formed between the RFP particles, leading to an acceleration of the penetration rate of CO2 More > Graphic Abstract

    Influence of Bayer Red Mud on the Operational and Mechanical Characteristics of Composite Cement Mortar

    Cheng Hu1,2, Weiheng Xiang1,3,*, Ping Chen2,3, Yi Yang4,5, Libo Zhou3, Jiufang Jiang5, Shunkai Li2,4, Yang Ming1, Qing Li3

    Journal of Renewable Materials, Vol.11, No.11, pp. 3945-3956, 2023, DOI:10.32604/jrm.2023.027544

    Abstract The aim of this study is to enhance the value and utilization of red mud generated in the Bayer process by preparing composite cement mortars. The effects of two different types of Bayer red mud with varying physical and chemical characteristics on the fluidity, mechanical strength, mineral composition, and microstructure of the composite cement mortar were systematically evaluated. The results showed that the optimal addition of red mud A was 10 wt%, while it was 20 wt% for red mud B. The mechanical properties of the composite cement mortar met the standards for P·O42.5 cement.

    Effect of Dry-Wet Cycles on the Transport and Mechanical Properties of Cement Mortar Subjected to Sulfate Attack

    Wei Chen1,*, Weijie Shan1, Yue Liang1, Frederic Skoczylas2

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.19, No.3, pp. 679-696, 2023, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2022.021249

    Abstract This study deals with the analysis of the detrimental effects of a “sulfate attack” on cement mortar for different dry-wet cycles. The mass loss, tensile strength, and gas permeability coefficient were determined and analyzed under different exposure conditions. At the same time, nitrogen adsorption (NAD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and X-ray diffraction (XRD) techniques were used to analyze the corresponding variations in the microstructure and the corrosion products. The results show that certain properties of the cement mortar evolve differently according to the durations of the dry-wet cycles and that some damage is caused to More >

    Microscopic Model Containing Micro-Voids for Analysis of Cement Mortar Damage Fracture Process

    Jichang Wang, Xiaoming Guo*, Xiaoxiao Sun

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.21, No.4, pp. 79-79, 2019, DOI:10.32604/icces.2019.05248

    Abstract Cement mortar is an important component of many composite materials and one of the most widely used materials in engineering construction. At microscopic level, cement mortar can be regarded as a multiphase material composed of fine aggregates, cement paste, and a great many of initial defects, the form of which are micro-cracks and micro-voids. The macroscopic properties of cement mortar will be influenced by mechanical properties of different constituents and complex internal structures. The microscopic model containing micro-voids is established by the method of secondary development. The process of cement mortar damage fracture is studied.… More >

    Influence of Water Stability on Bond Performance Between Magnesium Phosphate Cement Mortar and Steel Fibre

    Hu Feng1, Guanghui Liu1, Jiansong Yuan2,*, M. Neaz Sheikh3, Lu Feng4, Jun Zhao1

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.13, No.1, pp. 105-121, 2019, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2019.04864

    Abstract The fibre pullout test was conducted to investigate the influence of the water stability on the bond behaviour between the Magnesium phosphate cement (MPC) matrix and the steel fibre. The composition of the MPC-matrix and the immersion age of the specimens are experimentally investigated. The average bond strength and the pullout energy are investigated by analysing the experimental results. In addition, the microscopic characteristics of the interface transition zone are investigated using scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The experimental results showed that the bond performance between the MPC-matrix and the steel fibre decreased significantly with the More >

    A New Method of Controlling Shrinkage Cracking in Repaired Concrete Structures Using an Interface Layer of Carbon Fiber Reinforced Cement Mortar

    Shen Yubin1, Xie Huicai1,2, Den Wei1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.3, No.2, pp. 49-54, 2006, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2006.003.049

    Abstract Bonding an overlay of new concrete onto the damaged concrete is a usual repair method. Because of the different shrinkage rate of the new and old concrete, restrained shrinkage cracks will appear in the new concrete. The cracks will reduce durability and strength of the repaired structure. A new repair method using an interface layer of carbon fiber reinforced cement mortar between new and old concrete was developed in this paper. The new method was found to be very effective in reducing shrinkage cracking of repaired beams and slabs. Comparing with normal repaired beams, the More >
