Phase Change Materials in Concrete
Meeting: Technical session on “Phase Change Materials in Concrete” at The ACI Concrete Convention and Exposition – Fall 2018, October 14-18, 2018, in Las Vegas, NV; sponsored by ACI Committees 236, Material Science of Concrete.
Solicited: Topics of the session will include influence of micro-encapsulated phase change materials (PCMs) on microstructure and strength of concrete; durability of cementitious composites containing phase change materials; energy efficiency of various phase change material carriers; and mitigating thermal cracking and thermal fatigue of concrete using phase change materials. Submitted papers should address different types of carriers and working mechanisms of PCMs and the effects of PCMs on concrete properties, as well as details of PCM selection and field implementation. Applications of PCMs in building envelopes will also be considered.
Requirements: 1) presentation title; 2) author/speaker name(s), title, organization, and contact information; and 3) an abstract of up to 300 words.
Deadlines: Abstracts are due by December 31, 2017; final papers are due by July 1, 2018.
