The use of non-destructive tests for assessing the material status of concrete structures in the Netherlands remains relatively uncommon, despite the growing demand for the preservation of existing structures under the VenR policy of Rijkswaterstaat. Skepticism towards NDTs is reflected in the scarcity of documented case studies in publicly...

The use of waste materials has gained attention as a sustainable approach in various industries. Cigarette waste, which is typically discarded as a non-recyclable material, poses a significant environmental challenge due to its toxicity and slow decomposition rate. However, by incorporating this waste into ceramic bricks, new approaches for...

This study investigates the development of polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) gel matrices for biomass immobilization in wastewater treatment. The PVA hydrogels were prepared through a freezing–thawing (F-T) cross-linking process and reinforced with high surface area nanoparticles to improve their mechanical stability and porosity. The PVA/nanocomposite...

As an environmentally responsible alternative to conventional concrete, geopolymer concrete recycles previously used resources to prepare the cementitious component of the product. The challenging issue with employing geopolymer concrete in the building business is the absence of a standard mix design. According to the chemical composition of...

This study investigates the size effect on the compressive strength of foamed concrete at the mesoscale level combining X-ray computed tomography (X-CT) and a discrete lattice model. Image segmentation techniques and X-CT were employed to obtain virtual specimens comprising hydrated cement paste and air voids. The lineal-path function and...

Recycled aggregate concrete is emphasized more and more nowadays due to its importance towards the construction industry and general welfare of our planet. Being such a significant feature with regard to universal sustainable development, every aspect of its properties should be evaluated, examined and optimized so that there is a well-known,...

Waste glass (WG), as a nonbiodegradable material, poses a threat to environmental protection. The reuse of WG as a raw material to replace cement or aggregate in concrete production is gaining attention for recycling purposes. However, the optimal proportion of WG in concrete mixtures and its particle size distribution are hard to determine....

Formulation of quaternary blended system containing ordinary Portland cement or clinker, slag, limestone and calcined clay (LC2) appeared to be a viable approach to developing low-clinker cements without severely sacrificing mechanical performance at later ages. This paper investigates the effect of two material parameters, i.e., LC2-to-slag...

This paper presents the measurement and analysis of energy consumption of a laboratory jaw crusher during concrete recycling. A method was developed to estimate the power requirements of a lab-scale jaw crusher. The impact of material properties on the crusher performance is studied. Eight concrete strength classes (C20/25–C80/95) were...

This research project investigates the potential use of ultrasonic welding as a tool to repair impact damage inside thermoplastic composites to restore the compressive strength. Compared to the already existing method, hot-pressing, ultrasonic welding could offer faster processing times, no need for dedicated tooling, smaller and lighter...

The influences of liquid-binder ratio and mixing sequence on the performance of superabsorbent polymer (SAP)-containing alkali-activated slag (AAS) mortar are investigated in this study. It is found that the SAP absorbs much less liquid in upper supernatant of AAS than in water. Mixing SAP with liquid first induces a larger absorption...

Unconfined compressive strength (S<sub>u</sub>) is one of the soil engineering parameters used in geotechnical designs. Due to the temperature changes caused by some human activities, it is important to study the changes in S<sub>u</sub> at different temperatures. On the other hand, due to the differences in the mineralogical composition of...

RILEM TC 267 TRM– “Tests for Reactivity of Supplementary Cementitious Materials” recommends the Rapid Reliable Relevant (R3) test as a method for determining the chemical reactivity of supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) in Portland cement blends. In this paper, the R3 test was applied to 52 materials from a wide range of conventional...

Inadequate early compressive strength is a common problem when employing lightweight cement (LWC) slurries during the cementing of oil wells under low-temperature conditions. A new formulation of LWC slurry was investigated by the Research Institute of Petroleum Industry (RIPI) to improve the compressive strength and hydration rate of LWC...

Glass has become ever more popular in the building industry. Glass is already used in facades, staircases, fins, floors, and beams. Nevertheless, free-standing load-bearing glass columns are rarely used. It needs to be robust, which means that it needs to give a warning before failure so that people can evacuate. Glass is a brittle material and...

Addition of Portland cement in low-calcium aluminosilicate-based alkali-activated materials can provide rapid hardening at room temperature, thus modifying microstructure and mechanical properties. In the present study, the effect of Portland cement addition on alkali-activated materials, cured at room temperature, was analysed by mechanical...

Each year a large amount of construction and demolition waste (CDW) is generated in the European Union. For sustainability development the CDW is recycled and re-used. To promote the use of CDW, recycled aggregates from CDW were incorporated in alkali-activated concrete (AAC), which mainly consisted of secondary materials or industrial by...

Clamp-firing system is a cost-effective technology used to produce burnt clay bricks in many West African countries including Ghana. However, this firing system generates between 7%- 15% of waste in a form of burnt broken bricks and with time creates disposal problems. In this work, burnt clay broken bricks were sampled and pulverised to 75...
