Improving the workability and rheological properties of Engineered Cementitious Composites using factorial experimental design
In the development of Engineered Cementitious Composites (ECC), micromechanics-based design theory is adopted to properly select the matrix constituents, fiber, and fiber-matrix interface properties to exhibit strain ...
Use of spent foundry sand and fly ash for the development of green self-consolidating concrete
In the United States alone, the foundry industry discards up to 10 million tons of sand each year, offering up a plentiful potential resource to replace sand in concrete products. However, because the use of spent foundry ...
High-early-strength ductile cementitious composites with characteristics of low early-age shrinkage for repair of infrastructures
Reduced performance in concrete infrastructures is mainly caused by the formation of cracks, which may arise due to deteriorating mechanisms during service life. In most cases, reduced performance calls for urgent repairs ...
