Effects of porous ceramic roof tile waste aggregate on strength development and carbonation resistance of steam-cured fly ash concrete

Autores: Ogawa, Y. et Al This study aims to investigate the effects of porous ceramic waste coarse aggregate (PCWA), which was used as an internal curing agent, on the compressive strength, shrinkage, and carbonation resistance of steam-cured concrete using fly ash (FA) at the replacement ratios of 0%, 20%, and 40% by mass. The PCWA replacement ratios amounted to 0%, 10%, and 20% of the coarse aggregate […]

Effects of ceramic tile powder waste on properties of self-compacted alkali-activated concrete

Autores: Huseien, G.F. et Al This study explored rheological and hardened-state properties of self-compacting alkali-activated concrete (SCAAC) incorporating ceramic tile powder waste (CPW) for construction activities. Samples containing 100% ground blast furnace slag (GBFS) were used as reference. Test data revealed that the mini-slump flow enhanced, while the plastic viscosity of SCAAC reduced when 50% or higher concentration of CPW was mixed with GBFS. Also, CPW affected […]

Life cycle assessment of sanitaryware production: A case study in Italy

Autores: Silvestri, L. et Al Sanitaryware products are one of the most diffused ceramic materials. In the present study, an environmental assessment of sanitaryware production was carried out. The Life Cycle Assessment was performed with a cradle-to-gate approach, considering the product life cycle from resource extraction to the factory gate of an Italian company and it aims to evaluate the environmental weight of sanitaryware production, […]

Mechanical characterisation of a low-thickness ceramic tile cladding subject to ageing phenomena

Autores: Bazzocchi, F. et Al In recent years, an innovative system for a rainscreen façade system with low thickness and large tiles of porcelain stoneware has been patented. This paper presents the results of a large experimental campaign investigating mechanical performance of a ceramic tile in 3different configurations: tile without net, with fiberglass net glued on the back, and the entire cladding system (slab/net/frame). The main objective […]

Studying the feasibility of a selection of Southern European ceramic clays for the production of lightweight aggregates

Autores: Moreno-Maroto, J.M. et Al Nine clays traditionally used in the ceramic brick and tile sector in Southern Europe were evaluated for the production of lightweight aggregates: four from Spain, three from Portugal and two from Italy. The clays’ suitability was thoroughly examined according to their capacity for pelletizing, their tendency to burst during heating, the firing temperature and their technological properties. A greater proportion of phyllosilicates over nonplastic […]
