Lime Mortars Modified by Fine Ground Brick Body
Šmerdová, Ludmila ; Vyšvařil, Martin (referee) ; Rovnaníková, Pavla (advisor)
Natural pozzolanic materials played an important role in Ancient architecture. In the last decades and nowadays it is artifical pozzolan which especially finds its use as an additive to mortar and concrete to improve some, especially the mechanical properties. This master thesis deals with study of pozzolan type of fine brick powder which is a by-product of the production of calibrated bricks. Along with studying pozzolanic activity of brick powder, lime mortar with different proportions of brick powder as an additive or replacement of lime dust are investigated. What is observed is its impact on the consistency of these mortar, water absorption, strength in time or fracture-mechanical parameters of mortar. The results may indicate the possible potential use of this source of pozzolanic admixture in lime mortar and plaster which are nowadays mainly used for the restoration of facades of historic buildings.

Effect of cellulose ethers on mechanical properties of lime mortar
Skoupil, Jakub ; Bayer, Patrik (referee) ; Vyšvařil, Martin (advisor)
The subject of the thesis is to conduct an extensive literature review on the topic of effect of cellulose ethers on the mechanical properties of lime mortars. The theoretical part is devoted to the composition and production of cellulose ethers, which are available on the industrial market. On the basis of the review, the design of lime mortars using different kind of cellulose ethers has been conducted and after curing the tests of mechanical properties of mortars were performed and evaluated.
The influence of heavy metal oxides on the properties of cement pastes
Kašpárková, Kateřina ; Rovnaníková, Pavla (referee) ; Vyšvařil, Martin (advisor)
The Bachelor´s thesis is focused on study of the effect of increased content of heavy metals in cement production on the properties of this cement and the effect of addition of heavy metal oxides in cement pastes production. The thesis also deals with structural changes in particular components of cement in the presence of heavy metals. The effect of addition of heavy metal oxides on the properties of cement pastes is demonstrated in the experimental part by determining their mechanical properties, pore structure, and observation of the progress of hydration.
Effect of the composition of alkaline activator on the properties of hybrid cements
Šimko, Lukáš ; Vyšvařil, Martin (referee) ; Rovnaník, Pavel (advisor)
Building industry, especially production of Portland cement is the most ecologically and energetically demanding sector. Therefore, there is an effort of using waste products of energy industry as a (partial) substitution of conventional building materials. This bachelor thesis deals with the possibility of using the power station fly ash as a major part of mixtures with Portland cement, and therefore as a hybrid cement. In the experimental part, the influence of silicate module on the characteristics of mortars, whose binder is composed of 20% of Portland cement and 80% of fly ash from Dětmarovice power station, is examined. It further deals with influence of composition of alkaline activator on its characteristics. Its properties are examined in terms of porosity, strength and microstructure. Size and distribution of pores are examined by means of mercury intrusion porosimetry and evaluation of microstructure is based on scanning electron microscopy.
Plasticizers replacing lime in cement-lime mortars
Kajsrlík, Jan ; Bayer, Patrik (referee) ; Vyšvařil, Martin (advisor)
This bachelor thesis deals with the possibility of replacing lime in lime-cement plaster mortars. Considering commercially sold products, it explores the ways of replacing lime qualities by organic materials. Their influence on density, beam test and compression strength are researched; absorption capacity, frost resistance, capillary absorption coefficient are also assessed. Finally the organic materials are compared with the qualities of the lime-cement mortar
The effect of aggregate type on the properties of lime mortar
Žižlavský, Tomáš ; Rovnaníková, Pavla (referee) ; Vyšvařil, Martin (advisor)
The thesis is focused on the comparison of the role of different types of aggregates and the binder-aggregate ratio on the properties of lime mortars. The theoretical part of the thesis deals with the effect of properties of aggregate, a binder-aggregate ratio and a use of calcareous aggregate, especially limestone, on the properties of mortars. It also deals with the utilization of limestone as aggregate in a history of masonry. In the practical part of the thesis there is a comparison of physically-mechanical and microstructural properties of mortars prepared with different type of aggregate (siliceous sand and limestone aggregate), with varying binder-aggregate ratio and also with a partial substitution of the aggregate by limestone fines. It was found that the usage of limestone instead of quartz sand produces the mortar of comparable properties. The partial substitution of the aggregate with limestone fines caused noticeable growth of strength, especially in mortars with higher binder-aggregate ratio.
Application of foaming agents for the production of lightweight materials
Kramná, Adéla ; Vyšvařil, Martin (referee) ; Rovnaník, Pavel (advisor)
Use of lightweight building materials came to forefront in recent decades. The most commonly used materials are aerated and foam concrete but also other materials such as foamed geopolymer have been introduced. This study examines foaming methods of various lightweight building materials which are analysed and evaluated in terms of properties in hardened state. An effect of foaming agent on the structure of the material and its porosity was examined by image analysis using an optical microscope.
Effect of aggregate type on lime mortar rheology
Vozák, Rastislav ; Rovnaník, Pavel (referee) ; Vyšvařil, Martin (advisor)
The subject of this bachelor thesis is examining the effect of aggregate type on lime mortar rheology. In the theoretical part, the thesis describes types of liquids and basic rheological quantities. Afterwards there are described some of the rheological behaviour models of non-Newtonian fluids. Furthermore, the theoretical part characterizes measurement of the flow, devices used for the measurement including the oscillatory measurement and its individual modes. Scientific literature was used to describe the rheology of the lime mortars and it covers the effect of different additives on the rheological behaviour. There is also characterized the effect of aggregate on the properties of lime mortars. The experimental part talks about the effect of three various kinds of aggregate on rheological prop-erties of the fresh lime mortar. The chemical composition of aggregates and their granulometry was determined. Subsequently, flow measurements were carried out and evaluated into flow curves. The yield stress, coefficient of consistency and flow index were assayed. In the oscillatory measurement there were measured complex, elastic and viscous modulus and loss factor.
Effect of Grain Size of Waste Glass on Properties of Alkali Activated Aluminosilicate Composites
Novák, Václav ; Vyšvařil, Martin (referee) ; Bayer, Patrik (advisor)
The diploma thesis is focused on the use of the waste glass with different fineness on alkali - activated composites, mainly based on slag and fly ash. The theoretical part is focused on materials that are most used for alkaline activation - slag, fly ash and their composites with waste glass. The theoretical part also deals with the alkaline activation of composites from these materials and the factors that influences the microstructure and properties of these composites. In the experimental part were prepared composites from slag and fly ash with a waste glass as substitute. These composites then have been examined on mechanical properties and microstructure, also how different fineness of glass influences these properties. Then it will be decided whether it is economically advantageous grinding waste glass to finer fractions
