Title: Refractory Concrete-Use of Engineering Property Data for Design
Author(s): Robert E. Farris
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 151-166
Keywords: modulus of elasticity; permeability; quality control; refractory concretes; structural design; tensile strength; thermal conductivity; thermal expansion; thermal properties
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.
