CompGlass – First results with fibre glass reinforced cellular concrete

The objective of the described study was to investigate the feasibility of glass fibre reinforcement of cellular concrete. Particular aims were to demonstrate a method of fibre-glass preparation, a process technique and the properties of the new compound material.

1 Introduction

The available range of construction material products is very large and diverse. Nevertheless, investigations are constantly in progress, either in order to develop new materials or to improve the existing ones. Compared to conventional building materials such as concrete, cellular concrete provides numerous advantages. In the manufacturing of cellular concrete, the characteristic values for primary energy consumption and the ratio of raw material to produced building material are significantly more favourable, and its thermal insulation characteristics are better. Despite these...
