Title
Investigation of thermal properties of cement paste with fluorescent lamp waste glass, glass cullet and coal/wood ashes
Author
Abstract
The thermal character of cement hydration reactions causes concrete to endure temperature changes during the first days after casting. The present research intends to evaluate the influence on the temperature of hydration of cement paste mixes with local industrial wastes such as lamp glass waste powder/suspension, glass cullet, bottom/fly coal/wood ashes substitution at level of 20% and 30%. The temperature of hydration of cement paste mixes was investigated by using specially designed equipment. The temperature of hydration inside of the cement paste specimens was continuously monitored at least up to 20 h after production at ambient air temperature 20±2°C. The results showed that cement paste substitution with lamp glass waste and coal/wood bottom ashes at level of 30% has influence on the peak temperatures of hydration with decrease from 58.8°C to 46.3°C and cement paste substitution with flint glass at level of 20% decrease temperature of hydration for around 19°C in comparison to control cement paste mix.
