Brittle Matrix Composites 9 Book Summary

The subjects of the symposia are on composite materials with matrices behaving as brittle in normal or special conditions. Brittle matrix composites are applied in various domains (civil engineering, mechanical equipment and machinery, vehicles, etc.) and in the last decades their importance is increasing together with their variety. Papers include: aggregate-binder composites (concretes, fibre concretes, rocks); sintered materials (ceramics); high strength composites with brittle matrices. In principle, the general problems of structures made of composite materials are not included in the papers. Various approaches to the material engineering problems are presented in the papers.

This paper presents the results from an experimental study on the behaviour of Reactive Powder Concretes (RPC) at high temperature. The exposure to high temperature is related to the potential risk of fire. A previous study has shown that RPC is prone to spalling in such circumstances and for this ...

Fibre reinforced polymer-cement compositions for self-levelling flooring are studied. The individual and combined effects of dispersible polymer powder with properties of binder and superplasticiser, of various methylcelluloses, and of polypropylene fibre on effective viscosity of the mix and mechanical properties of the hardened mortar are evaluated and analysed. Used for ...

More recent investigations on cellulose-cement composites predominantly deal with durability aspects, whereby use is made of accelerated weathering cycles as the main approach to establishing the deterioration mechanisms and the efficiency of treatment methods. As moisture transport is the main mechanism that leads to the deterioration of those composites, accelerated ...

The paper presents results of tests on self-compacting mixtures with the addition of steel fibres (Steel Fibre Reinforced Self-Compacting Concrete). Four types of steel fibres at 3 levels of the volume ratio are considered. The results include studies on samples belonging to classes of slump flow SF, classes of viscosity T500, ...
