Abstract Scope Using a thermodynamics-based framework, the process to successfully manufacture synthetic lightweight aggregate (LWA) from waste coal combustion ash through sintering was investigated in which a delicate balance among three phenomena was required: (i) sufficient liquid phase formation during sintering, (ii) appropriate viscosity for the liquid-solid phase, and (iii) sufficient gas emission amount to form pores in the LWA. Using thermodynamics modeling, the liquid phase formation during sintering was quantified, where its correlation to X-ray computed tomography observations indicated that a minimum of 35 % by mass liquid phase content is necessary for gas-filled pores formation in LWA. The Browning and Krieger-Dougherty models were used to quantify the liquid and liquid-solid phases viscosity, respectively. A lower bound of 100 PaS for the viscosity was found to ensure the spherical shape of the LWA. Thermogravimetric analysis showed a considerable gas release potential for the LWA, creating gas-filled pores in the LWA.
