Paper Title:
Experimental Study on CaCO3 Whisker-Reinforced Fiber Cement Mortar
  Abstract

As a kind of monocrystal reinforcing material, CaCO3 whisker has good characteristics of high strength, high module and high thermal stability. This research aims to optimize the microscopic structure of fiber cement mortar by adding CaCO3 whiskers and improve the macroscopic mechanical properties. The results showed that CaCO3 whiskers increased the flexural and compressive strength of cement mortar at 3d age by 29.5% and 19.8% at maximum respectively, which fell to 7.2% and 13.0% at 28d age; when CaCO3 whiskers content was 10% and polypropylene fibers content was 0.05%, compared with the pure cement mortar, the flexural and compressive strength were increased by 32.4% and 29.4% at 3d age and 7.6% and 4.6% at 28d age respectively; when the fiber length was 9mm, the composite effect of whiskers and fibers was more ideal; through the SEM analysis, the reinforcing mechanisms of CaCO3 whiskers and polypropylene fibers in cement mortar were discussed.
