Article
Full-text available
In the last decades, fiber reinforced concrete have emerged as the possible key to revolutionize civil engineering. Among different types of fibers employed in concrete technology to date, the application of recycled steel fibers produced from end-of-life car tires appears to be a viable approach towards environmentally friendly construction. In th...
Article
Full-text available
The search for technological solutions to the ever‐increasing demand for ultra‐high‐quality concrete with the simultaneous construction boom represents one of the greatest challenges concrete researchers are facing nowadays. In view of their unique properties, graphene and related materials, when utilized to form graphene‐based cementitious composi...
Conference Paper
Steel fibres are increasingly used in concrete structural applications. Mainly the manufactured fibres are used, meanwhile the waste like steel cord coming from the end-of-life tires could also be applied. One of the barrier of its application is the lack of an experimental data and numerical simulations indicating for their positive effect of conc...
Article
Full-text available
This study reports on the development of a cementitious composite incorporating electrochemically exfoliated graphene (EEG). This hybrid functional material features significantly enhanced microstructure and mechanical properties, as well as unaffected workability; thus, it outperforms previously reported cementitious composites containing graphene...
Article
These days, nanotechnology has already influenced many fields of science and technology, including civil engineering. Cementitious composites incorporating various nanomaterials have emerged as novel materials with improved microstructure, mechanical properties and durability. Over the past decades, graphene oxide has appeared as one of the most pr...
Conference Paper
Paper presents research focusing on the effects of the incorporation of graphene oxide into geopolymers. Two different compositions of geopolymers made out of waste from the coal power plant, sodium silicate, sodium hydroxide and 0.05, 0.1 and 0.2 wt.% additive of graphene oxide were prepared. Prism samples 40x40x160 mm were fabricated and then the...
Chapter
Full-text available
Development of structural engineering, daring structures with record spans or heights, meets two serious obstacles—the limitations of traditionally used materials and the need of continuous monitoring of new structures subjected to complex loads, including those of dynamic nature. Considering the responsibility for the life of people and the budget...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Nowadays scientists from all over the world are in a continuous quest for improving the performance of cementitious composites. One of the recent trends for enhancing the microstructure of cement paste and thus its mechanical behaviour involves the application of nanotechnology. Although several studies proved that the addition of nano-particles ca...
Article
Full-text available
Geopolymers are believed to become in the future an environmental friendly alternative for the concrete. The low CO 2 emission during the production process and the possibility of ecological management of the industrial wastes are mentioned as main advantages of geopolymers. The main drawback, causing problems with application of geopolymers as a b...
Conference Paper
Since the Second World War, research involving the use of geopolymers in construction was carried out in several countries. Nowadays, the popularity of geopolymers among researchers is still growing. This is due to the fact, that geopolymers made out of waste materials instead of cement are becoming an attractive alternative to concrete. Authors of...
Article
Geopolimery nie są nowym materiałem w budownictwie. Obecnie, w erze poszukiwania nowych ekologicznych i wydajniejszych materiałów konstrukcyjnych, zainteresowanie geopolimerami powraca. Nowoczesne, niewykorzystujące cementu, za to pozwalające na zużycie produktów odpadowych, materiały geopolimerowe mogą stanowić atrakcyjną alternatywę dla tradycyjn...
