Thermo-physical properties and high-temperature durability of reactive powder concrete (RPC)
Helmi, Masdar (2016) Thermo-physical properties and high-temperature durability of reactive powder concrete (RPC). PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
The popular use of concrete, particularly in the construction industry, has continually challenged researchers to advance its performance to new levels. Research in this area has led to substantial ideas of reactive powder concrete (RPC) which is developed by controlling three main variables: composition, pressure during setting period, and post-set heat curing. A growing community of research has emerged to define the physical and mechanical properties of RPC, but to date few have focussed on the high temperature behaviour and aging effects after exposure to fireand that influence the durability of concrete.
