Abstract
Abstract The objective of this paper is to study some characteristics of a component to buildings made with gypsum plaster (commercial – CGP and recycled – RGP), and wastes (red ceramic – RC and porcelain – PW) by loading-pressure. Bricks were prepared with a solid mass composition containing 50% (by weight) of binder, 50% (by weight) of waste, and very small water/dried powder ratio (0.22). Specimens were molded with uniaxial loading-pressure (10 kN) before setting times. Compressive and flexural strengths, porosity, and microstructure were evaluated. The compressive results were in the range of 12.3 and 33.9 MPa, higher than the minimum required by Brazilian Standards to building components (≥2.5 MPa). The low water/solid mass ratio and the uniaxial loading-pressure before setting times contribute to decreasing the porosity, which was shown in the dense microstructure. The obtained results show that these components present a good quality building component.

Abstract Gypsum plaster waste (GPW) represents a large fraction of the total construction and demolition wastes generated by society, which may contaminate the soil and water resources. Although previous studies have indicated the possibility of recycling GPW, it is not known so far, if the recycling process affects the rehydrated products and how many times the GPW can be recycled without changing its characteristics. The present paper evaluated the properties of recycled gypsum plasters produc...

In addition to several positive aspects in technical properties, geopolymeric binders have considerable advantages in the environmental point of view, with lower energy consumption and lower CO2 emission. In this study, it was conducted an overview about the utilized materials by some Brazilian researchers in geopolymers production, and also an experiment employing two types of wastes (red ceramic waste and rice husk ash). The compressive strength of the resulting material developed very fast, r...

Abstract The goal of this research is to propose the use of industrial by-products as solid sources of silica in replacement of commercial sodium silicate (SS) for the manufacture of geopolymeric binary binders. The result of this approach is a binder with good mechanical properties and environmental benefits, which can be used in civil engineering applications such as the manufacturing of masonry elements. A Colombian fly ash (FA) and a commercial metakaolin (MK) were used as geopolymer precurs...

Abstract The construction industry consumes large quantities of natural resources and simultaneously generates a considerable amount of construction and demolition waste (CDW). This includes gypsum waste (GW), which must be managed correctly. Besides, the cement manufacturing process, which is part of the construction industry, has a high environmental impact. Therefore, the aim of this study was to recover GW and use it in the manufacture of ordinary Portland cement (OPC), to improve waste mana...

Turning waste into a resource is a way to increase resource use efficiency and close the material loop of a circular economy. Gypsum plasterboard is well suited for this, because the raw material calcium sulphate dihydrate (CaSO4·2H2O) can repeatedly change its properties through a reversible hydration reaction. The waste hierarchy is applied when plasterboard is recycled instead of landfilled, which contributes to the European 2020 target of 70% recovery of construction and demolition (C&D) was...

Gypsum quantitative determination in cements may be done from their thermogravimetric analysis (TG) data, which uses the mass of the water released from its gypsum dehydration during cement analysis, to determinate its content stoichiometrically. Depending on the operational conditions used to mill the gypsum with clinker, its partial dehydration may occur, which leads to unreal results when only unhydrated cement TG data are used. To solve this problem, TG analysis of the 1-h paste of respectiv...

Reducing the anthropogenic impacts on the environment is an important task, one that must be tackled in the building sector, which has considerable responsibility for such impacts. The amount of construction and demolition waste is increasing, and, consequently, so is gypsum plaster waste. This waste is due to the increase of using gypsum plaster in buildings as renderings and plates. This paper presents results that can enhance the value of gypsum waste recycling, thus reducing the damage the b...

The gypsum plaster is a material widely used in constructions around the world. It is a material with high versatility that can be applied from wall coverings to decorative ornaments. However, during its application in buildings, large amounts of waste materials are generated. The average values of waste during its application are higher than 45% of the gypsum amount used. A series of tests were conducted to develop a feasible methodology to reuse this waste material. The results collected at th...

Abstract null null Natural sand is extensively used in mortars and concretes as aggregate, and the consumption of this material in construction activities is leading to depletion. This study investigated the use of porcelain waste (PW) that comes from the electrical insulator industry as a replacement of sand in alkali-activated mortar (AAM) production. NaOH and rice husk ash were used to make a sodium silicate which was used as alkali activator, and metakaolin was the aluminosilicate source. So...

Plaster is primarily used as a building material obtained by the calcination of gypsum. Its rapid setting time (time for the mixture to solidify) and the low quality of labor generate a large amount of nonused material. Due to its solubility in water, wasted gypsum cannot be disposed of in the environment, and its recycling process is encouraged. In this work, quantitative phase analyses (QPA) using X-ray powder diffraction (XRPD) data and the Rietveld method were carried out to determine the am...

Strain sensors can indicate the conditions of concrete structures, but these sensors are only capable of measuring local behaviors of materials. To solve this problem, researchers have introduced conductive materials that can monitor the overall behavior of concrete structures. Steelmaking slag, which contains large amounts of iron oxide (Fe2O3), is conductive, and researchers have considered the addition of this material to improve concrete monitoring. In this study, mechanical and electrical p...
