New paper in ASCE's Journal of Materials in Civil Engineering

The paper entitled "Influence of uncalcined coal gangue on the microstructure and properties of magnesium ammonium phosphate cement" by Chaofan Wang, Thanh Liem Vo, Mohammad Rezania and Bing Chen, has been accepted for publication in ASCE's Journal of Materials in Civil Engineering. This paper proposes a new method of reusing uncalcined coal gangue as a mineral admixture in the magnesium ammonium phosphate cement (MAPC) blended with fly ash. This was a collaborative work with fellow scientists at Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) of China, thanks to a SJTU-Warwick Joint Seed Fund award. The bulk of the experimental study was carried out by Chaofan Wang (a PhD student at SJTU) and complemented by Thanh Vo (a Postdoctoral fellow at Warwick).

New paper form MINRESCUE in Construction and Building Materials

The paper entitled "Early age hydration behaviour of foam concrete containing a coal mining waste: novel experimental procedures and effects of capillary pressure" from Josephine Foghi’s work on the MINRESCUE project has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Construction and Building Materials (a top journal in construction material’s field). The paper is co-authored by Liem Vo and Mohammad Rezania (from Warwick University) Mohaddeseh Mousavi Nezhad (from Liverpool University) and Liberato Ferrara (from Plitecnico di Milano). In this paper an innovative laboratory setup, incorporating high capacity tensiometers (HCTs) into purpose-built unsaturated oedometer cells, is proposed to investigate the curing behaviour of foam concrete, with inclusion of mining waste aggregates, during early age hydration. The incorporation of the HCTs made it possible to directly monitor the matric suction evolution of the mix and the corresponding interplays depending on the foam concrete samples’ (water- or air-) curing conditions.
