AcronymTHERMAL CONCRETE

Proposal titleCHARACTERISATION OF THERMAL DELAY OF LIGHT CONCRETE BLOCKS

MADE ON EXPANDED CLAY

AbstractThe project proposes the characterisation of thermal delay of light concrete blocks made on

expanded clay in order to improvethe characteristics of construction blocks from three

main points of view. BUILDING MATERIAL: the development of improved building

materials by testingdifferent granulometries and agglomeration processdesign dimensions

of blocksBUILDING MATERIALS STANDARDISATION: the standardisation of the

thermal delay of light concrete materials by comparingunder standard conditions.

ENVIRONMENTAL: the use of a material allowingImprovement of energy requirements

in buildingUse environmental friendly materialsReduction of plastics in building as

insulation materialsMain Factors affecting Temperature Delay are:-> Characteristics of

the material employed in the manufacture of the blocks-> Structural dimensions of the

block, i.e.  thickness, structural hollows, forms and dimensions.The design of the blocks as

well as the materials employed are of fundamental importance in order to obtain an as higher

temperature delay as possible but using a single material and isolation layer.

Key ActionGROW-5.   RTD activities of a generic nature : Materials and their technologies for

production and transformation and new and improved materials and production technologies

in the steel field
