The Experiment and Theoretical Analysis of Reusing Waste Cement Mortar


Article Preview

This paper presents the idea of mixing waste cement mortar into foam concrete block, and gets the foam concrete testing models with the values of dry density at 700 to 1000 kg/m3 , and the compression strength at 0.5-2.5MPa, which are met to foam concrete block standard. At the same time, the power formulas for calculating the dry density and compression strength of concrete cubes doped with waste cement mortar have been brought up, which are coincided with the experiment results well. An initial discussion about microcosmic composition has also been given, which has rather high practical application values since it offers experimental and theory foundations for reusing the waste cement mortar. The innovation significance should not be neglected, since it is the first time doing research on these aspects.
