Tests of Selected Properties of Aggregates on Ceramic Wastes

Artur Koper


The article analysed the results of comparative sampling of selected properties of concretes with addition of aggregates from sanitary ceramic wastes. For the need of the analyses there were created concretes of various w/c coefficients (0.35, 0.50, 0.75) and with diverse percentage participation of ceramic wastes aggregates (exchange of 50% and 100% coarse aggregates into ceramic). The range of performed samples and analyses included sampling of mechanical and physical properties of concretes and the aggregates used. What was under analysis: for aggregates – sampling of bulk density, absorbency, resistance to crushing; for concretes from ceramic wastes – sampling of density, absorbency, compressive strength, tensile strength and compressive strength after roasting. Roasting was performed according to defined temperature cycles: cycle I - from 0 to 150OC (vaporisation of free water), cycle II - from 150 to 550OC (separation of chemically combined water), cycle III - beyond 550OC (change of hydraulic combination into ceramic, sintering).
