Use of by-products as additives in adobe bricks: Mechanical properties characterisation
MetadataShow full item record
Six by-products are used as additives in adobe bricks to study the variability of mechanical properties by a three level design of experiments and to evaluate optima formulations. Corn plant, fescue, straw, and grounded olive stones are agricultural by-products; and rubber crumbs and polyurethane are wastes used as transport and appliances by-products. Results show that the three-level design of experiments defines properly the governing equations of flexural and compression strength, furthermore it shows the interaction between them. A maximum improvement of 89% and 26% of flexural strength in corn plant and fescue types, respectively, is achieved.

Study of Fresh and Hardening Process Properties of Gypsum with Three Different PCM Inclusion Methods Serrano, Susana; Barreneche Güerisoli, Camila; Navarro Ezquerra, Antonia; Haurie, Laia; Fernández Renna, Ana Inés; Cabeza, Luisa F. (MDPI, 2015)Gypsum has two important states (fresh and hardened states), and the addition of phase change materials (PCM) can vary the properties of the material. Many authors have extensively studied properties in the hardened ...
Stabilized rammed earth incorporating PCM: Optimization and improvement of thermal properties and Life Cycle Assessment Serrano, Susana; Barreneche Güerisoli, Camila; Rincón, Lídia; Boer, Dieter; Cabeza, Luisa F. (Elsevier, 2012)In this paper PCM is added to three types of stabilized rammed. Mechanical and thermal characterization is carried out. To do so, the compressive strength is optimized and the final compositions obtained are used to ...
