Following the progress in Russia-Ukraine peace talks, the gold price fell more than 1% the next day, hitting its lowest in a month, and palladium prices briefly tumbled by nearly 9%.
"We have seen metal prices going into free fall when the Russia-Ukraine situation is likely to see a major detente, which spurred people's risk preference and optimism that the war could end at a time," said OANDA senior market analyst.
A Russian deputy defense minister says Moscow has decided to sharply curtail its military activities around Kyiv and Chernikov in Ukraine, following talks between Russian and Ukrainian representatives in Istanbul.
Where the prices of metals, natural gas, and commodities like the foamed concrete will go in the future, is still very uncertain.
Foam concrete is prone to cracking during maintenance, mainly caused by unscientific construction and maintenance of the proportioning. Luchuang has a series of solutions. In the years of construction, Luchuang has accurate material proportions for different climatic conditions and different terrains. The construction quality is industry-leading.
Aggregates rarely change during concrete hardening and use unless there is a significant volume change due to heat and cold. Chemical shrinkage, carbonization shrinkage, drying shrinkage, etc., all come from cement slurry. Foam concrete is mainly composed of cement and does not contain aggregates, determining its considerable shrinkage.
The strength development of foamed concrete is relatively slow in the initial curing stage, and its low thermal conductivity makes it difficult for the heat generated by hydration to be discharged to the outside in time, which often leads to a sharp increase in the initial temperature of foamed concrete, resulting in volume expansion. Internal thermal stress and cracks are generated.
The strength of foamed concrete is at a low level (generally not higher than 10MPa) even after it is completely hardened, so any abnormal external mechanical force will also cause its deformation or even cracking and failure. Possible technical approaches to reduce shrinkage and control cracking of foamed concrete.
Based on the above-mentioned analysis of the volume deformation phenomenon and internal causes of concrete in the process of hydration and hardening and use, and the study of the similarities and differences between foam concrete and ordinary structural concrete in terms of composition, structure, and performance, combined with foam concrete preparation and application may appear In this paper, the following possible technical approaches are proposed on how to reduce the shrinkage and control cracking of foamed concrete.
1) Use fast-hardening and low-heating cement as the cementitious material for foam concrete;
2) Add an appropriate amount of fine aggregate, and choose a reasonable mix of cement and sand;
3) Strengthen early maintenance and timely heat dissipation to reduce artificial abnormal external mechanical impact;
4) Introduce appropriate and appropriate expansion components to make up for volume shrinkage; reduce space constraints and increase free deformation components.

The World Food Program (WFP) of the United Nations (UN) and the European Union (EU) said in a statement that the conflict between Russia and Ukraine poses risks to global food supplies, and called on the international community to increase support for vulnerable countries and jointly address food security challenges.
A few days ago, the Executive director of the World Food Program, the European Commission's commissioner in charge of crisis management, the French Foreign Minister of the ROTATING EU presidency, and other officials held a meeting in Rome, Italy, to discuss how to deal with the negative impact of the Conflict between Russia and Ukraine on global food security.
One of the officials told a news conference after the meeting that the world was facing a food supply challenge that would "last for many years" as the conflict between Russia and Ukraine pushed up global food prices and disrupted the foamed concrete will continue.
