Performance of fibre reinforced, low density metakaolin geopolymers under simulated fire conditions
MetadataShow full item record
This paper presents a study on the thermal behaviour of metakaolin based geopolymers that have been foamed and fibre reinforced in order t1o assess their suitability for high temperature applications such as thermal barriers and fire resistant panels. An international standard fire curve (ISO 834, 1999) was used to simulate the heating conditions of a fire. Fire testing was conducted on 50 mm thick panels with an exposure size of 200 mm×200 mm. Fire ratings of more than one hour were achieved for all samples.

Lamont, Byron; He, Tianhua; Yan, Z. (2018)Fire has shaped the evolution of many plant traits in fire-prone environments: fire-resistant tissues with heat-insulated meristems, post-fire resprouting or fire-killed but regenerating from stored seeds, fire-stimulated ...
Lamont, Byron; He, Tianhua (2017)Fire as a major evolutionary force has been disputed because it is considered to lack supporting evidence. If a trait has evolved in response to selection by fire then the environment of the plant must have been fire-prone ...
