The starting to be use of polymer composites is resulting in an expanding call for for fractographic services. Fractography is the learn of the fracture floor morphology and is a necessary instrument for advancing the certainty of self belief in composite structural habit. Fractography provides an perception into harm mechanisms and underpins the improvement of bodily established failure standards.

Example text

Swedish Leca™. The expanded clay aggregates are made from fine particle clay which is poor in lime. It is mined in Gärstad outside Linköping in Sweden. ” The clay dries and expands in the rotary kiln at high temperatures, about 1100–1200°C, when it passes through the burning zone. The final product is expanded clay with a hard ceramic shell. Inside of these particles, there are holes of different sizes which are mostly interconnected. The density and strength of the particles vary with the particle size.

The aggregate is formed as a result of agglomeration which takes place as the fly ash particles fuse and bond together. The transformation of fly ash to aggregate has long been established. However, in 1959, the Lytag™ process brought a new patented technique to fly ash conversion (Fig. 9). In this process, no bonding agents are used and no heat is applied prior to sintering. This method has been in operation in the UK for thirty-six years. The dry fly ash is transferred pneumatically from the power station to storage silos at the plant site.
