Effect of Equilibrium Moisture Contents on Insulating Performance of Autoclaved Aerated Concrete Blocks
In this paper, a research was performed which considers the material characteristics of autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) blocks and the weather characteristics in Pearl River Delta region. The AAC blocks laws of absorption and desorption and its thermal conductivity under different equilibrium moistures were measured. The experimental results show that equilibrium moisture content (EMC) is 6.27% for AAC blocks with a B07 density in hot and humid areas in the Pearl River Delta region including the city of Guangzhou, and the correction coefficient of the thermal conductivity is 1.5.
