Development of lightweight ceramic construction materials based on fly ash

Development of lightweight ceramic construction materials based on fly ash This study aims to demonstrate the suitability of using lightweight ceramics as a construction material in preference to autoclaved aerated concrete and pumice blocks or the more commonly used brick. For construction applications, ceramics show good stability under fatigue loadings and severe environmental conditions and are an economical alternative to other materials. Although bricks have better mechanical properties than the new generation construction materials, thermal insulation properties of brick are much lower. Hence, the use of bricks as a fired construction materials is becoming increasingly unfavorable; as a result, brick manufacturers are losing their market share day-by-day. This study aims to develop an alternative fired lightweight, ceramic construction material with fly ash with relatively better mechanical and thermal insulation properties. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of the Australian Ceramic Society Springer Journals

Abstract

This study aims to demonstrate the suitability of using lightweight ceramics as a construction material in preference to autoclaved aerated concrete and pumice blocks or the more commonly used brick. For construction applications, ceramics show good stability under fatigue loadings and severe environmental conditions and are an economical alternative to other materials. Although bricks have better mechanical properties than the new generation construction materials, thermal insulation properties of brick are much lower. Hence, the use of bricks as a fired construction materials is becoming increasingly unfavorable; as a result, brick manufacturers are losing their market share day-by-day. This study aims to develop an alternative fired lightweight, ceramic construction material with fly ash with relatively better mechanical and thermal insulation properties.
