Choice of Production Technology of Autoclaved Cellular Concrete: Impact Or Molding

The history and current stage of development of two technologies of autoclaved aerated concrete manufacturing, molding and impact, are considered. It is shown that at present, basic volume of autoclaved aerated concrete in Russia is produced with the use of the molding technology, and this proportion tends to slow increase. However, noted that characteristics of ready-made articles produced with using different technologies don’t have principal differences, clearly indicating the manufacturing technology (except for homogeneity of pores and after-autoclaved humidity). It is concluded that each technology has its own features which can be described as advantages and disadvantages separately, but the comprehensive com parison does not allow us to make a conclusion without any relation to the features of the resource base and technological traditions. At present, the dispute about the benefits of both technologies is essentially subjective in nature.

Facing Layer and Hydrophobizator in Manufacture of Aerated Concrete*

New aerated concrete plants use a unilateral tilting of the array in cutting process which improves the production quality and increases the coefficient of utilization of the autoclave. A drawback of the unilateral canting is a formation of a facing layer. The use of the crushed facing layer as hydro-silicates, crystallization centers, is efficient, but it is connected with the increase in water demand of the mix. The work presents the research in the use of the facing layer pre-treated with a hydrophobizator. The study of the influence of water repellents on the lime slaking is also presented; a minimal impact on the lime slaking temperature has been defined. The study determined the composition of a complex additive containing the crushed facing layer and water repellent. The use of the additive treated with the hydrophobizator maintains the fluidity of the mix and leads to improving the strength.

Keywords: aerated concrete, waste, strength, repellent (hydrophobizator).

Optimization of Fastening of AAC (Autoclaved Aerated Concrete) Structures When Filling External and Internal Walls of Frameworks of Buildings of up to 80 m Height

Developers of normative documents, which regulate the use of autoclaved aerated concrete, faced the problem of the absence of experimental studies. As a result of this, documents contain a large number of elements and requirements which were executed with a large reserve according to the well-established practice of applying. The tests of structures conducted at SIBIT fac tory will make it possible to revise some of these «reserves» that under conditions of market competition will favor the improvement of competitive advantages of aerated concrete.

Physical-Mechanical Design Basics of Plaster Mortars for Aerated Concrete Masonry

Normative requirements (compression strength and bending strength, adhesion to the masonry) for plastering mortars for finishing of walls made of autoclaved aerated concrete in the EU countries Ukraine, Russia are contradictory and not always substantiated. The plaster mortar is to be considered as a coating connected with masonry through the contact zone. The design of compositions and properties of plaster mortars should be carried out with due regard for stresses occurring in the plastering coating because of its shrinkage and the differ ence of deformations with masonry as well as deformations of the wall structure and the coating itself. Components of the mix and their number should be selected with due regard for the processes taking place in the course of plaster coating hardening and destruction of the “masonry–plaster coating” system. The result of selecting the composition should ensure the reducing of stresses in the plaster coating and contact zone up to values lesser than the destructive stress.

Keywords: aerated concrete masonry, plaster mortars, “masonry–coating” system.

Coal argillite recycling in ceramic raw materials and process fuel production*
The research results of the material, chemical and mineral compositions of waste coal from Korkino open-pit coal mine are provided, and the dependence of the percentage of organic component in coal argillites on the size of the rock is revealed. The technology of waste coal recycling is offered to produce coal fuel and raw material for the industry of ceramic mate- rials. On the basis of pilot industrial tests it was shown that a pneumatic waste classification allows to extract the remains of coal from argillite and get a stable ceramic raw material for brick production. Such complex processing of waste coal provides not only a significant expansion of the raw material base for construction materials sub-sector and generation of additional energy, but will also help to solve environmental problems and improve the environmental situation in industrial regions.

Keywords: waste coal, coal argillites, ceramic brick, complex processing of waste coal.

Efficient Solution of Reducing Increased Moisture of Clays

The complex organic-mineral polyfunctional aqua-bond “KOMPAS” developed by authors is presented. It is intended for reducing the moisture content of raw materials without the pro cess of their pre-drying. The bond “KOMPAS” is a mixture of cellulose-containing powder and a mineral additive or an organic plasticizer depending on the index of clay plasticity. It is recommended to introduce the additive in the amount of 0.1–0.4% of the total charge mass. On the example of the experience of some brick factories, it is shown that the introduction of the bond “KOMPAS” facilitates more dense packing of particles in the molding composition, improvement in mechanical strength of semi-products and ready-made articles, as well as reducing the open porosity and water absorption. Compositions of the additive for plastic and high plastic clays, moderately plastic and lean clays have been patented.

Keywords: energy saving, resource saving, ceramic brick, humidity, plasticity, molding composition, drying, technological additive, aqua-bond, KOMPAS.

Influence of Dispersity of Non-Plastic Components of Ceramic Masses on Sintering and Properties of Building Ceramics

Results of the study of influence of dispersity of quartz-feldspar waste and a diopside concentrate in ceramic masses on the sintering and properties of building ceramics are pre sented. It is established that reducing the dispersity of quartz-feldspar waste in the samples entails the fire shrinkage, decrease in the optimal burning temperature, strength growth. The diopside concentrate with dispersity of 150 mkm in the composition of ceramic masses ensures the obtaining of a non-shrink building material with high physical-mechanical properties.

Keywords: building ceramic, sintering, burning temperature, dispersity, qurtz-feldspar waste, diopside concentrate.

Monolithic Concretes on the Basis of Expanding Agents and Chemical Modifiers

The information on basic advantages of the monolithic construction technology is presented. Issues of improving qualitative and technological characteristics of ready-mixed concretes including durability and crack resistance are considered. Compositions of concrete composites with water tightness W16 and frost-resistance F300 have been developed with the use of expanding agents and complex of chemical additives. The results of tests of compositions of concrete mixes for slump retention vs. time and changing the air entrainment when agitat ing in the truck-mounted mixer are presented. Ii is shown that expanding agents in cement composites create the dense structure, reduce the permeability including diffusion, which prevents the corrosion of concrete and steel reinforcement.

Keywords: monolithic construction, non-shrink concrete, expanding agent, crack resistance of concrete, water tightness.

Structure Optimization of Ultra-Light Cement Mortar with Due Regard for Geometrical and Physical and Mechanical Characteristics of Components

Results of the development of lightweight and ultra-light slurries having a low density with sufficient strength due to optimizing their structure with due regard for the geometric and physical-mechanical characteristics of components are presented. As a filler in these mortars, it is proposed to use hollow glass microspheres and as a binder – ultrafine cement. Because the hollow glass microspheres are more than 10 times lighter than cement, the increase in their share in the volume solution will reduce its average density. At that, it is neces sary that the microspheres are characterized by maximally dense packing and are surrounded by a dense matrix, that is, their volume fraction in the bulk solution would be maximal. It is expected to achieve this fact by reducing the thickness of layers of the cement matrix, which is achieved by more fine dispersing the cement particles, or replacing the Portland cement by a new high efficient mineral binder – «Mikrodur». As a result of optimization of the structure with due regard for the geometric and physical-mechanical characteristics of compo nents and their energy states, lightweight and ultra-light cement mortars with high construction and technical properties have been be obtained.

Keywords: cement mortar, optimal structure, density, strength, hollow glass microspheres; ultrafine binder.
