Envelope Structures Based on Energy-Efficient Lightweight Concrete from Local Raw Materials for the Republic of Crimea
The paper discusses the importance of lightweight structural insulation concretes for large-scale and economical construction of residential and social buildings in the Republic of Crimea. Constructing buildings using structures made from lightweight structural insulation concretes is cost-efficient due to availability of the necessary raw material component in the Republic of Crimea. The paper also describes the composition and process of manufacturing lightweight structural insulation concretes from fired aggregate – foam-quenched culletа, gives a comparative analysis of thermal conductivity and water absorption, foam-quenched cullet test results versus other similar materials. Tests and calculations yielded conclusions about characteristics of lightweight structural insulation concretes based on foam-quenched culletе: high structural quality coefficient, increased thermal resistance, widespread availability and easy production of input raw materials for the manufacture of foam-quenched cullet, environmental friendliness with the possibility of industrial waste recycling, durability, and fire and biological resistance.
