Obtaining a Gypsum-cement Blend, to be Used as Filling, with Low Hardening Temperature

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


When a beam, made of material whose properties would be affected at temperatures above 37°C and with irregular geometry at its ends, is subjected to a bending test; it is necessary to guarantee the stability of its support points to achieve success in the execution of the test. This paper presents a study on the properties of a particular composite material that is used as a filling for certain hollow supports with the aim to provide stability to the ends of the beam when the load is applied. Although the mixture employed reacts exothermically, it does not exceed the maximum temperature level above which the mechanical properties of the constituent material of the beam would be affected. In addition, the strength of the mixture is such that it is able to withstand the compression stresses that are generated during the test.
