The Environmental Impacts of Concrete - GreenSpec

The Environmental Impacts of Concrete Cement and global warming • Making cement results in high levels of CO 2 output. • Cement production is the third ranking producer of anthropogenic (man-made) CO 2 in the world after transport and energy generation. •

10 Properties of Concrete and their Uses -

Concrete is known by its grade which is designated as M15, M20 etc. in which letter M refers to concrete mix and number 15, 20 denotes the specified compressive strength (f ck) of 150mm cube at 28 days, expressed in N/mm 2. Thus, concrete is known by its

A novel lightweight concrete-fabrication and its

Workability Workability is an important property of concrete, especially for lightweight concrete because of its casting without vibration. The workability of fresh EPS foamed concrete was evaluated in term of slump. As shown in Fig. 3, the addition of fo

Steel vs. Concrete: Which Comes Out on Top

Concrete: A large cost benefit to concrete is the fact that its price remains relatively consistent. On the other hand, concrete also requires ongoing maintenance and repairs, meaning added costs throughout its lifetime. Supply-and-demand may also impact

Lightweight concrete

The basic design for lightweight concrete is covered in Eurocode 2 Part 1-1, with section 11 having particular rules required for lightweight aggregate concretes. Concrete is considered to be lightweight is the density is not more than 2200kg/m 3 (the den


Because of its longevity, concrete is a viable solution for environmentally responsible design and requires less maintenance over the lifetime of the building. As a . CONCRETE SUSTAINABILITY REPORT NRMCA CSR04 . NATIONAL READY MIXED CONCRETE ASSOCIATION C

Cement and Concrete Research -

Concrete, the mix of aggregates with water and cement, is flying off. Its best commercially traced and documented component, Portland cement or its variants, has been experiencing an unprecedented de-

How concrete is made - material, manufacture, making, how

Its applications have included precast concrete shapes and asphalt/concrete pavement for highways. Fly ash, a coal-burning power plant byproduct that contains an aluminosilicate and small amounts of lime, is also being tested as a possible pozzolanic mate

ETH Zurich makes lightweight concrete ceiling using 3D

03/08/2018 · A lightweight concrete ceiling with formwork 3D-printed from sand is among the innovations to feature in an experimental robot-made house built by university ETH Zurich. The DFAB House, currently ...

Offshore concrete structure

Concrete offshore platforms of the gravity-base type are almost always constructed in their vertical attitude. This allows the inshore installation of deck girders and equipment and the later transport of the whole structure to the installation site. The


Smart Slab is the first concrete slab fabricated with a 3D-printed formwork. It is a lightweight concrete slab, displaying three-dimensional geometric differentiation on multiple scales. It combines the excellent structural properties of concrete with the

What is Lightweight Concrete? -Types, Uses and Advantages

Lightweight concrete mixture is made with a lightweight coarse aggregate and sometimes a portion or entire fine aggregates may be lightweight instead of normal aggregates. Structural lightweight concrete has an in-place density (unit weight) on the order

Smart Slab formwork construction | intelligent concrete

This involved a 78 m2 lightweight concrete slab as a structurally-optimised and functionally-integrated ceiling slab with a performative complex design. 3D printing using the Powder-Binder-Jetting process once again proved valuable in such a Project. At N

A novel lightweight concrete-fabrication and its thermal

1. Introduction. Builders around the world have become increasingly interested in using lightweight concrete in their projects. This interest arises from the decreasing volume of many load-bearing elements, as well as the superior thermal properties of li
