- ... Fibre reinforced concrete (FRC) has advantages, such as minimizing cracking, increasing the composite absorption of energy and enhancing the residual strength. At the same time, the demand for sustainability led to the development of using construction and demolition waste as recycled aggregates in structural and non-structural components. The aim of this study is to analyse the technical and envi ...

- ... Foaming of rubber is a well-known technique and foamed rubber products have found application in various industries including cushioning, heat insulation and sound absorption. In the current study, the foaming of reclaimed tyre rubber (RTR), as an alternative to virgin rubber, is explored. The effect of varying the amounts of waste ethylene vinyl acetate (filler), sodium bicarbonate (blowing agent ...
