Testing and Reviewing the Effects of Different Clasts of Fine Aggregates on the Bond of Traditional Mortar to AAC
Aerated Autoclaved Concrete (AAC) is a precast building material that has been in use for roughly 70 years. Aside from structural support AAC offers significant advantages over alternative building materials including a low environmental impact, high fire rating, excellent acoustic properties, as well as high thermal efficiency. Because AAC is a precast building material, either regular cement mortar joints or thin bed mortar joints are implemented to bond the segments together. Thus, this method of construction requires high bond shear strength. Due to the transfer of lateral loads in a building, ...
