Rechargeable Concrete Battery

A rechargeable cement-based battery was developed, with an average energy density of 7 Wh/m2 (or 0.8 Wh/L) during six charge/discharge cycles. Iron (Fe) and zinc (Zn) were selected as anodes, and

Cement-based batteries design and performance. A review

Lithium batteries are increasingly used to store energy, but are limited by high cost, safety concerns, leaking of electrolytes, and low capacity. Recently, cement-based batteries have emerged as a

Capacitance-Based Self-Sensing Cement-Based Composite Produced by Traditional Methods

Bu çalışmada, çimento hamurunun kapasitans tabanlı kendiliğinden algılama özelliği incelenmiştir. Çimento hamurlarına sürekli ve süreksiz yükleme döngüleri (minimum gerilme 6 kPa, maksimum gerilme 36



Energy Storage Structural Composites: a Review

This study demonstrates the construction of a multifunctional composite structure capable of energy storage in addition to load bearing. These structures were assembled and integrated within the

Electret, piezoelectret and piezoresistivity discovered in steels, with application to structural self-sensing and structural self-powering

Electret, piezoelectret, piezoresistivity and stress-dependent electric permittivity are reported in unmodified steels. Structural stress/strain self-sensing based on piezoelectret/piezoresistivity

Cement-based piezoelectret

A cement-based piezoelectret is reported for the first time. Both poling during setting and sodium silicate liquid admixture strengthened the piezoelectret effect. The electret voltage increased upon

Carbon fiber composites with battery function: Stresses and dimensional changes due to Li-ion diffusion

Structural composite materials that simultaneously carry mechanical loads, while storing electrical energy offers the potential of significantly reduced total component weight owing to the
