Characterization of EPS lightweight concrete ...

30/07/2018  Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) appears as a good choice to produce lightweight concrete given its good thermal properties, very low density and moisture resistance. It is commonly used for insulation and packaging of several products for protection purposes due to its flexible structure, impact absorption and mechanical robustness. However, EPS is most often released into nature after it is

This research studies the influence of partial substitution of fine aggregate by lightweight expanded polystyrene (EPS) in the behavior of a simple concrete modified with fly ash (FA). Replacement of 10%, 30%, 60% by volume of EPS and 10% FA of cement were used. Destructive and non-destructive tests to cylindrical specimens were carried out to assess physical and mechanical properties such as ...

01/04/2019  EPS has been widely used by the construction industries in the production of lightweight building materials such as wall panel and lightweight concrete blocks. Hence, in this study, EPS has been used as the replacement material in the production of lightweight concrete brick. Replacement of sand by EPS was based on volume. The replacement percentage of EPS was 0%, 20%, 30%, 40%

Mechanical properties of EPS lightweight concrete

Because the expanded polystyrene (EPS) light weight concrete has the characteristics of lightweight, energy absorption, and heat preservation, it is used in many specific construction industries like high rise buildings, floating marine platforms, and large sized and long span concrete [1, 2]. The lightweight concrete (LWC) has no pollution to the environment because manufacture EPS particle ...

The properties of EPS concrete 20 depend on the mix design and the EPS particle size distribution [26]. Increased shrinkage 21 and creep deformation are reported and result from a reduction in the restraint effect 22 compared to natural aggregates, which have much higher static modulus of elasticity [27-23 30]. Additional issues related to EPS lightweight aggregate concrete are Eigen stress-24 ...

Abstract This work assesses the reuse of waste expanded polystyrene (EPS) to obtain lightweight cement mortars. The factors and interactions which affect the properties of these mortars were studied by ad-hoc designs based on the d-optimal criterion. This method allows multiple factors to be modified simultaneously, which reduces the number of experiments compared with classical design.
