Original Abstract

Waste Based Partical Polymer Composite (WPPCs) made from polypropylene and glassy inclusion developed at Brno University of Technology for civil engineering application bring several advantages. First of all, WPPCs are theramlly insulating and humidity resistant low - cost material with high bearing capacity. We examined the thermomechanical properties of the composite, including creep properties of WPPC and Polypropylene matrix. In the study we use Kafkas mesomechanical model to simulate creep strain changes in time for various temperatures. we demonstrate the applicability of Kafkas model for simulating properties of the studied material
