Production of ceramic glass foam of low thermal conductivity by a simple method entirely from fly ash
Ceramic glass foam/foams (CGF) from two different F-class fly ashes were produced via a well-known simple conventional sintering method using sodium silicate (Na₂SiO₃) as a foaming and fluxing...
Experimental research to evaluate the percentage change of thermal and mechanical performances of bricks in historical buildings due to moisture
The presence of moisture inside building materials decreases their thermal and mechanical performances. Knowing the variability of these properties as a function of saturation is essential both to...
Environmentally-friendly ceramic bricks made from zeolite-poor rock and sawdust
The production of innovative building bricks from new materials has drawn a huge interest lately, targeting sustainability-related problems. This research investigates the utilization of zeolite-poor...
Tailoring the thermomechanical behaviour of epoxy with the incorporation of bamboo and graphite filler
The present study is committed to overcome the problem associated with fiber orientation, delamination in composite material. Micro-sized bamboo particulate and graphite is selected as potential...
Ultra-light, heat-resistant, flexible and thermal insulation graphene-fluororubber foam prepared by using N2 as a blowing agent
Developing light-weight fluororubber foam is a challenging task mainly because of its high density and the easy shrinkage of foam. A promising approach to overcome this challenge is the use of...
Sodium Silicate Insulating Foam Reinforced with Acid-Treated Fly Ash
A set of insulating foams based on sodium silicate were prepared using acid-treated fly ash as an additive. It was found that the HCl-treated fly ash was able to remove the undesirable...
Silica Aerogel Thermal Insulation Coating as Commodity Usage
Silica aerogel-based thermal insulation coating (SA-coating) was prepared from a commercial acrylic binder. The purpose of this investigation is to determine the effectiveness of SA-coating with the...
Thermal and Acoustic Insulation Boards from Microalgae Biomass, Poly-β-hydroxybutyrate and Glass Wool
Among the many functions that a building material needs to have, its insulation functions stand out. This type of materials acts by decreasing the conduction of heat/sound in to the environment. In...
Innovative thermal and acoustic insulation foam by using recycled ceramic shell and expandable styrofoam (EPS) wastes
Ceramic foams were produced using ceramic shell (mullite source), an industrial solid waste from the precision casting process, and expandable styrofoams, EPS (d50 < 1 mm) as pore former,...
