Experimental Estimation of the Elastic Modulus of Non-Hazardous Waste Incineration Bottom Ash Aggregates by Indentation Tests - Microanalysis of Particles by Scanning Electron Microscopy

An original experimental campaign never conducted until now on Non-Hazardous Waste Incineration aggregates is presented in this paper. The experiments were conducted in two phases: Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and instrumented indentation. A cartography followed by a series of Quantitative Chemical Microanalysis (QCM) was carried out on the 0/12.5 mm fraction of the particle size distribution. Instrumented indentation tests were carried out on isolated particles of 25 mm in diameter. Observations at the SEM yielded the exact chemical composition of the bottom ashes. It has been found that the proportions of the chemical elements composing the material are slightly different from those of other studies. This difference has made it possible to note that the zone of production of the bottom ash significantly influences their physicochemical characteristics. From the indentation curves obtained, the “Olivier and Pharr” method was used to determine the reduced modulus of elasticity “Er”. Mean values of approximately 65 GPa and 40 GPa were obtained respectively for vitreous phases and less vitreous ones.
