The participation in scientific conference.
Name: ICNF 2017 – 3rd International Conference on Natural Fibers
Place: Braga, Portugal.
Dates: 21-23 June 2017.
Topic: Mechanical Properties of Raffia Fibres Reinforced Geopolymer Composites
Short information: Geopolymer are “green” alternative to the traditional cementitious materials. They have good compressive strength, but relatively low tensile and flexural strength. It limits their use in many areas, especially in building and civil engineering industries. The research results shows possibilities to improve this mechanical properties by natural fibre addition. The study is intended to analyse the influence of addition of raffia fibres on the mechanical properties of geopolymers.
