Effect of alkoxysilane on early age hydration in portland cement pastes

Publicación en el marco de PTI-PAIS del Instituto de Ciencias de la Construcción Eduardo Torroja (IETCC), el Instituto de Estructura de la Materia (IEM) y la Universidad de Cádiz del estudio mediante difracción de rayos X (XRD), termogravimetría (TG-DTG), espectroscopía infrarroja (FTIR) y espectroscopia Raman del efecto de un alcoxisilano sobre la hidratación temprana de pastas de cemento Pórtland.

  • Se evaluó un estudio profundo de la reacción temprana de la hidratación del cemento Portland presencia del alcoxisilano TEOS base.
  • Se encontró un nuevo pico exotérmico, en la curva calorimétrica isotérmica, antes del pico de aceleración/deceleración.
  • La cinética de la hidratación del cemento Portalnd fue alterada, con una considerable reducción del calor total liberado.
  • La portlandita Ca(OH)2 reaccionó con el Si(OH)4 (procedente de la hidrólisis del alcoxisilano), a lo largo del período de inducción calorimétrica, precipitando el gel CSH.

Cuatro incorporaciones a PTI-PAIS

En el último mes se han incorporado cuatro nuevo miembros a PTI-PAIS.

Damos la bienvenida a un nuevo Grupo de Investigación (GI) recientemente incorporado a PTI-PAIS. Se trata del Grupo de Caracterización de Materiales mediante Evaluación No Destructiva (G-CARMA) del Instituto de Tecnologías Físicas y de la Información “Leonardo Torres Quevedo” (ITEFI) cuyo IP es el Dr. José Javier Anaya Velayos. Pinchando en el enlace sobre su nombre podréis ver sus capacidades e investigaciones, muy acordes a la misión de PTI-PAIS.

Podéis acceder a su oferta de servicios aquí: Caracterización de materiales mediante ensayos no destructivos (G-CARMA) (ITEFI)

También en las últimas semanas se han incorporado a PTI-PAIS tres Entidades Asociadas (EAs) de tres tipos de entidades diferentes:

HS Academy #3 – March 8th – “Remote sensing-based approach for Cultural Heritage interpretation and monitoring”

 

HS Academy Webinar 03/2022: Remote sensing-based approaches for Cultural Heritage interpretation and monitoring

HS ACADEMY #3 will provide an overview of remote sensing-based approaches for the interpretation and monitoring of cultural heritage.  Remote-sensing based approaches to cultural heritage with application to real conservation and restoration problems.

It will be lectured by Nicola Masini, Research Director of CNR, Deputy Director of CNR-Institute of Heritage Science, Senior lecturer at Master and PhD courses of the University of Basilicata. His dominant scientific interests are focused on the development and application of remote sensing-based methods for archaeological research, landscape archaeology, cultural heritage risk analysis and conservation.

Date: March 8th, 2022. 3 p.m.

Registration: https://www.iperionhs.eu/webinar-03-2022/

The webinars are organized by the HS Academy, a collaborative initiative between IPERION HS (www.iperionhs.eu) and E-RIHS (www.e-rihs.eu). The two European projects integrate facilities of recognized excellence in Heritage Science, offering access to a wide range of high-level scientific instruments, methodologies, data, tools and training opportunities for advancing knowledge and innovation in the field.

16-18th of May – International Conference: 3rd Florence HERI-TECH: The Future of Heritage Science and Technologies

Categoría: Noticias

3rd Edition of Florence HERI-TECH: The Future of Heritage Science and Technologies

The 3rd Edition of this international conference on heritage science will be celebrated in Florence the 16th to 18th of May.

The topics are Materials Science, Diagnostic and Monitoring, Engineering, Ict and digital Heritage, Environment and CH, Sustainable Architecture of CH but more topics can be proposed through here: https://www.florenceheritech.com/areas-and-topics/

Paper submission is still open until 11th of March.

The idea: «The International Conference Florence Heri-Tech: the Future of Heritage Science and Technologies, involves a large number of researches and scholars from around the world and puts the industry’s current issues under spotlight, specifically on issues related to innovative techniques and technologies for Cultural Heritage. The Conference is part of the Florence International Biennial for Art and Restoration, an international event attracting prestigious institutions and companies and creating a unique opportunity to bring together the academic word with industry. The Conference will be a significant opportunity to bring together the academic world with industry.

Heri-Tech is the first International Conference to welcome major researchers and scholars from all over the world, focusing on current and future issues in the field on issues related to innovative techniques and technologies. The city of Florence will therefore be the international heart of Restoration and Cultural and Environmental assets as well as a forum for meeting and discussing for experts, operators and enthusiasts from around the world. The Conference will be a significant opportunity for exchange between researchers and companies for the promotion of productive excellence, technological evolution, the greater use of culture for younger sections of the population and specialization in the educational field for graduates and PhD students.«

The objectives:

«To foster European mobility and co-operation between students and staff; to enhance Europe’s development as a multi-cultural society and to encourage the concept that scientific-cultural research must be an integral part of society; to promote international networks between universities, training institutes and companies to create long-term collaboration opportunities; to create favourable conditions for young graduates to enter the world of work; to demonstrate the influence of new technologies in the arts and how they can be used for innovative teaching and learning; and to establish contacts and cooperation between Institutions in the Academic world and the world of work.»

11F – IPERION HS, E-RIHS & PTI-PAIS in the International Day of Women and Girls in Science.

IPERION HS & E-RIHS celebrated this International Day of Women and Girls in Science with a video celebrating and proudly preseting the women in the consortium, that represent the 45% of the researchers.

 

 

  • In PTI-PAIS the 56.9% of the researchers are women. These numbers are clearly a deviation from the normal. We have to celebrate but we have to encourage to endure this in any scientific field and claim the opportunity for inspiring the many girls outhere that don’t imagine themselves as scientist.

 

  • Worldwide: «Women are typically given smaller research grants than their male colleagues and, while they represent 33.3% of all researchers, only 12% of members of national science academies are women.»  Ursula von der Leyen says this must change and we agree with her.

  • Also the Deputy Vice-Presidency for Scientific and Technical Areas of CSIC honoured the 50% of women coordinators of Interdisciplinary Thematic Platforms, in what our Platform is included and asked Marta Castillejo to make a statement to inspire girls that want to join the STEM field.


«My advice to a future female scientist: think big, anticipate, don’t be overcome by difficulties and enjoy the privilege of creativity, intellectual freedom and interaction with collaborators and colleagues.»

https://twitter.com/CSIC_VAACT/status/1492063096986390529 

  • We want to highlight the joint participation on divulgative activities of 5 institutes (IEM, IQFR, IO,  IFF and Cajal Institute) from CSIC for this day. The activities took place in their institutes but also in the schools and formative centers where the mental image of women science is still forming and where  the decision to devote your life to science takes place.

Sagrario Martínez Ramírez hold some of these talks in IES Joaquín Turrina and IES Palomeras-Vallecas, two secondary education institutes. The lectures were on great women scientists in history: Sagrario Ramírez Gallardo (spanish scientist that invented and patented solid fuel) and women scientists today.

 

 

  • On a side note I want to promote this webpage from the University of the Basque Country that promotes scientific activities carried out by women. https://mujeresconciencia.com/
