Heat-Resistant Corundum Concrete Reinforced with Aluminum Oxide Fibers Synthesized Within a Matrix During Firing.Part 8. Petrographic and X-Radiographic Study of Reinforced Refractory Concrete1
It is noted that the reinforcing components is distributed quite uniformly within concrete. Adhesion with binder is strong. Under action of high temperature there is active conversion of raw material fibers into corundum with an increase in volume. The material created surpasses unreinforced concrete with respect to strength properties and thermal shock resistance, and is distinguished by good volume constancy during operation.
