Title: Effect of Sustained and Cyclic Temperature Exposures on Lightweight Concrete
Author(s): N.G. Zoldners, H.S. Wilson
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 149-178
Keywords: admixtures; cements; compressive strength; concretes; cyclic loads; flexural strength; fly ash; high temperatures; light-weight concretes; loads (forces); portland cements; portland slag cements; pozzolans
Abstract:Two series of lightweight concrete mixes made with expanded shale and slag aggregates were prepared for heat exposures between 300 C and 1000 C (572 F to 1832 F)/ To some concretes microfillers such as fly ash, silica flour, and calcined shale dust were added to replace 25 and 40% of the portland cement in the binder.
