ELECTRICAL PROPERTIES OF FLY ASH GEOPOLYMER COMPOSITES WITH GRAPHITE CONDUCTIVE ADMIXTURES
Keywords:fly ash, geopolymer, graphite, electrical properties, mechanical properties, microstructure
AbstractConstruction materials with increased electrical conductivity could be possibly used in health monitoring of structures (stress, deformation, damages), their maintenance or traffic monitoring. The aim of this study was the application of functional filler and its influence on the electrical properties of the alkali-activated fly ash matrix. The graphite powder was added to the reference material in the amount of 2–10 %. Besides the assessment of the critical amount of filler necessary to achieve a percolation threshold in the structure of the composite, the effect on the electrical properties of the matrix (resistance, capacitance, conductivity) was determined. The optimal amount of filler was also determined with respect to the changes in microstructure of the binder and its mechanical properties.
