The optimization of a gypsum-based composite material

2002-11-01
Contemporary requirements for gypsurn-based composite materials (GBCM) for rendering or plastering include controlled setting time, good workability, sag resistance, high compressive and flexural strength, perfect bond to concrete or brick, water resistance, and improved heat and noise insulation. The application of a number of chemical admixtures and mineral additives was found to be necessary to provide the required performance for gypsum-based materials. Among the necessary chemical admixtures are the following: a retarding admixture, a water-soluble polymer (MC), an air-entraining admixture (AE), and a superplasticizer (SP). This paper describes the effect of the different admixtures on the consistency, setting time, and the compressive strength of GBCM. It also discusses the application of the stepwise optimization (SWO) method for the evaluation of the GBCM composition. (C) 2002 Published by Elsevier Science Ltd.

Determination of the Tensile Strength of Different Fiber Reinforced Concrete Mixtures
Ardoğa, Mehmet Kemal; Alam, Burhan; Yaman, İsmail Özgür (null; 2016-09-21)
Enhancing the tensile performance of concrete is the main advantage when fibers are added to this type of building materials. This improvement is usually measured through indirect methods like bending or split-tensile tests, in a way similar to normal concrete due to the absence of a standard tensile test for such purpose. Naturally, this type of tests does not determine the real tensile strength of the fiber reinforced concrete. Hence an important parameter, that is needed in modelling and designing proces...
An investigation on compatibility properties of exterior finish coats for insulated walls in terms of water vapour pemeability and modulus ofelasticity
Örs, Kerime; Tavukçuoğlu, Ayşe; Department of Building Science in Architecture (2006)
The compatibility properties of some contemporary finish coats together with their complementary layers used in insulated exterior walls were examined in terms of water vapour permeability and modulus of elasticity. Basic physical and mechanical properties of some synthetic-, cement- and polymer-based external finish coats were analyzed in laboratory. Some additional samples, complementing the wall section, were also examined for their water vapour permeability. Results showed that the finish coats were hig...
Effect of Openings on the Seismic Response of AAC Infilled Frames
Todorovic, Lana; Demirel, İsmail Ozan; Binici, Barış (2019-10-11)
Autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) is an attractive building material with lightweight, good insulation, fireproofing, and durability characteristics. The seismic response of AAC requires an in-depth understanding as its use as infill walls is gaining popularity in seismically active regions of many countries in Europe, Middle East, and Asia. Recent studies on the seismic response of AAC infill walls were mostly conducted on solid AAC walls without considering openings and simulated earthquake loading was ap...

The effect of shape memory alloys on the ductility of exterior reinforced concrete beam-column joints using the damage plasticity model
Halahla, Abdulsamee M.; Abu Tahnat, Yazan B.; Almasri, Amin H.; Voyiadjis, George Z. (Elsevier BV, 2019-12-01)
Using shape memory alloys (SMA) bars can significantly enhance the ductility of exterior reinforced concrete joints, where they can replace the conventional steel reinforcement. This research focuses on studying the effect of using SMA on the ductility capacity of exterior reinforced concrete beam-column joints at different column axial load levels. Finite element analysis was carried out and compared with the experimental results from the literature for verification purposes, and both were compared with th...
