This paper reports on a study of waste clay brick that was ground and used as a supplementary cementitious material (SCM) in a mortar. The effect of this ground brick, in comparison with other conventional pozzolanic materials (namely, a Class F fly ash, and a natural pozzolan), on the alkali–silica reaction (ASR) of the mortar was evaluated.
This paper reports on the compressive strength and microstructure of unfired clay masonry bricks. Blended binders comprising of lime-activated Ground Granulated Blastfurnace Slag (GGBS) and Portland Cement (PC)-activated GGBS were used to stabilise Lower Oxford Clay (LOC) for unfired masonry brick production.
The optimization of the production of fired clay brick is essential for the sustainability of the clay brick industry. One strategy to address these concerns is to use waste additives as fluxing agents in bricks. Use of these additives can decrease the dependency of the industry on nonrenewable resources and can improve brick strength and durability.
This paper deals with the methods of improving the shear-bond strength of soil-cement block masonry (without altering the mortar characteristics) and the influence of shear-bond strength on masonry compressive strength.
Nondestructive testing techniques are increasingly being used to obtain the geometry of structural and nonstructural elements and hidden features such as voids, cracks, and detachments. However, the evaluation of the compressive strength and other mechanical properties of ancient materials using such techniques remains a challenge.
Recycling and reuse of building rubble present interesting possibilities for economy on waste disposal sites and conservation of natural resources. This paper examines the possibility of using crushed brick as coarse and fine aggregate for a new concrete.
This article assesses the use of sewage sludge as a raw material in the ceramic industry, specifically in the manufacture of soft-mud bricks, to determine the maximum incorporation of sludge that results in technically sound and environmentally friendly bricks.
Bricks manufactured from dried sludge collected from an industrial wastewater treatment plant were investigated. Results of tests indicated that the sludge proportion and the firing temperature were the two key factors determining the brick quality.
In this article, foundry sand as waste material has been valorized in ceramic brick manufacturing at industrial scale. The employment of a waste coming from one industry as an input for another is one of the key concepts of industrial ecology. To study the environmental behavior of the ceramic bodies in different life cycle stages, three leaching tests have been developed.
