January 1, 1978

Author(s):

T.J. Fowler

Publication:

Symposium Papers

Volume:

57

Abstract:

A review of operational experience of typical refractory concrete installations with empahsis on failures, their causes and the lessons learned. Self-supporting, suspended, precast, and lining type applications are included.

Document: 

SP57-12

Date: 

January 1, 1978

Author(s):

Y. Ichikawa and L.A. Nelson

Publication:

Symposium Papers

Volume:

57

Abstract:

High temperature thermal insulation materials that are lightweight, durable, and low cost have important applpications in heat recovery steam generators (HRSG) designed for high efficiency modern power plants that produce power at combined efficiency (PACE). . .State-of-the-art samples tested in the duct manways of the Public Service Company in Lawton, Oklahoma survived conditions of blast, heat, and transient temperatures.

SP57-09

Date: 

January 1, 1978

Author(s):

R. L. Wessel

Publication:

Symposium Papers

Volume:

57

Abstract:

The use of refractory castables in steelplant applications is expanding continually, and their use has been accelerated by periods of energy and/or fired-refractory-material shortages. . .Projections for the future of refractory concretes in the steel industry suggest a trend toward the use of high-purity and synthetic raw materials and greater interest in composity materials containing metallic fibers.

SP57-07

Date: 

January 1, 1978

Author(s):

Robert E. Farris

Publication:

Symposium Papers

Volume:

57

Abstract:

Refractory concrete, unlike Portland cement concrete, is not commonly used as a structural member, although in some applications it may contribute to overall structural integrity. More often refractory concretes are used to protect structural members (commonly steel) and are considered to be lining or barrier materials. The use of thermal conductivity, thermal expansion, strength, and reheat shrinkage data is discussed relative to their use in designing with refractory concrete.

January 1, 1978

Author(s):

G. MacZura and F.J. Rohr

Publication:

Symposium Papers

Volume:

57

Abstract:

Technical problems associated with strength testing of neat CA cement have been identified and data are presented that support refractory concrete testing for cement evaluation.
