Research on Mechanical Behaviour of Cement Mortar with High-Volume Coal Gangue
With the fast development of modern industry, the fact that coal dominates the main energy structure will not change for a long time. While the output of coal gangue has accounted for 15%~20% in that of coal. Therefore, coal gangue has become one of the greatest contributions to industrially discharged solid waste in China currently. Nowadays the comprehensive utilization ratio is less than 20%, so there is so much room for the activity and comprehensive utilization of coal gangue. In this article, coal gangue in Tongchuan stimulated by thermal, mechanical and chemical activation has been used as supplementary gelatinize material in cement. The optimal activated ways and technological parameter have been selected by the test of strength, fluidity, water requirement for normal consistency of cement paste, and stability. Also XRD and SEM are used to discuss the change of microstructure which has taken place in activated coal gangue preliminarily.
