With the increasing concern regarding global warming, alternative methods to improve the sustainability of cement manufacturing gained attraction. Partial cement substitution with supplementary cementitious materials (SCM) carries a huge potential to improve sustainability or even performance when optimized properly. The commonity of the clay deposits provides a huge advantage to the clays as SCM, but due to vast differences in composition and behavior, proper characterization of the clays is required. In t...

Biochar (BC), a low-cost, porous and carbon-rich material, exhibits excellent potential as an adsorbent in the immobilization and removal of environmental contaminants from water and soil. To enhance the surface area, functionalities and adsorption efficiency of BC, various clay and clay mineral-based physical and chemical modification methods have been adopted. Although extensive studies have been conducted to evaluate the removal efficiencies of BC-clays and clay minerals composites, insight into synthesi...
Radiation effect studies on partially crystalline bulk amorphous Fe-based metallic glass
Kiceci, Pelin Uslu; Akdeniz, Mahmut Vedat; Demirköz, Melahat Bilge; Mehrabov, Amdulla (2022-02-01)
The selection of appropriate materials for radiation environments is critical due to the harsh and aggressive conditions found in such environments, which are liable to degrade material properties. Therefore, durability of materials should be tested before being deployed. In this respect, proton tests are required for the materials to be used in the space environment because dominant galactic cosmic rays mostly comprised high energy protons. Bulk metallic glasses are candidate for space environment due to t...
