  • Publication number: 20150218049
    Abstract: A method of manufacturing a cementitious composite including: (1) mixing an extrudable cementitious composition by first forming a fibrous mixture comprising fibers, water and a rheology modifying agent and then adding hydraulic cement; (2) extruding the extrudable cementitious composition into a green extrudate, wherein the green extrudate is characterized by being form-stable and retaining substantially a predefined cross-sectional shape; (3) removing a portion of the water by evaporation to reduce density and increase porosity; and (4) heating the green extrudate at a temperature from greater than 65° C. to less than 99° C. is disclosed. Such a process yields a cementitious composite that is suitable for use as a wood substitute. Particularly, by using higher curing temperatures for preparing the cementitious budding products, the building products have a lower bulk density and a higher flexural strength as compared to conventional products.

  • Publication number: 20110004332
    Abstract: Methods of preparing design-optimized concrete compositions having target compressive strengths and slumps with a minimal amount of water are disclosed. In particular, the optimized concrete compositions are produced by analyzing pre-existing mix designs from a manufacture and determining the optimum amount of water required in the mix (i.e., optimized water to cement ratio) to obtain a target slump, yet allowing for the end-produced concrete composition to have a target compressive strength.

  • Publication number: 20110004333
    Abstract: Methods for design-optimization of concrete compositions having workability optimized gradation and fixed cement paste volume are disclosed. In particular, the methods allow for designing and manufacturing of concrete compositions having target compressive strengths and slumps and having a fixed volume of cement paste based on target compressive strengths and/or target slump amounts using improved methods that more efficiently utilize all the components from a performance standpoint.

  • Publication number: 20090158970
    Abstract: Concrete compositions have a fine-to-coarse aggregate ratio optimized for decreased viscosity and increased workability. The concrete compositions include at least water, cement, coarse aggregate, and fine aggregate and have a slump of at least 1 inch and a 28-day compressive strength of at least about 1500 psi. Workability is improved by minimizing the viscosity as a function of the aggregate content. To improve workability, the concrete compositions include between 45% and 65% fine aggregate and between 35% and 55% coarse aggregate as a function of total aggregate volume. For relatively low strength concrete (1500-4500 psi), the fine aggregate is 55-65% of the total aggregate volume. For medium strength concrete (4500-8000 psi), the fine aggregate is 50-60% of the total aggregate volume. For high strength concrete (>8000 psi), the fine aggregate is 45-55% of the total aggregate volume. Overall workability can be maintained or improved even if slump is decreased.
