Effects of granulated blast furnace slag trass and limestone fineness on the properties of blended cements

Delibaş, Tuğhan
The aim of this research was to determine the effects of the fineness of different mineral additives on loss on ignition, heat of hydration, physical, mechanical and chemical properties of blended cements. For that purpose, portland cement clinker was replaced with granulated blast furnace slag (GBFS), natural pozzolan (NP) and limestone (L) at 6%, 20% and 35% replacement levels. Blended cements containing GBFS and NP were ground to a fineness of 3000, 5000 and 6000 cm2/g. Cements containing L were ground to 3000 cm2/g, 4000 cm2/g and 4500 cm2/g. All of the blended cement types mentioned above were both interground and separately ground to the specified fineness levels. Therefore, a total of 57 different cements were produced. Loss on ignition, heat of hydration, chemical, mechanical and physical analyses were performed on the produced cements. Moreover, the chemical analyses of the cements were obtained for cement particles finer (-45μm) and coarser (+45μm) than 45 μm in order to determine the ingredients of -45 μm, which is known to be more reactive. As a result it was shown that the grindability differences of the cement ingredients affect the properties of blended cements. An increase in the specific surface area increases both the compressive strength and heat of hydration values and adversely affects the loss on ignition values. The results also showed that if the cement particles were ground finer, it was more prone to moisture which resulted in higher loss on ignition values after longer periods.


Influence of Zinc Oxide on Thermoplastic Elastomer-Based Composites: Synthesis, Processing, Structural, and Thermal Characterization
ÇELEBİ, HANDE; Bayram, Göknur; DOĞAN, AYDIN (Wiley, 2016-08-01)
It was aimed to investigate how thermal conductivity and stability properties of synthesized thermoplastic elastomers were influenced by zinc oxide (ZnO) additives which differed in size and surface treatment. ZnO particles were prepared by the homogeneous precipitation method by mixing aqueous solutions of hexamethylenetetramine (HMT) and zinc nitrate. The obtained particles were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). Poly(v...
Effect of Polymers on the Rheological Properties of KCl Polymer Type Drilling Fluid
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (2005-05-01)
In the course of this research, the effect of two polymers (xanthan gum and polyanionic cellulose) on the rheological properties of KCl/polymer type drilling fluids was investigated. Non-Newtonian drilling fluids are conventionally characterized by rheological models (Bingham Plastic, Power Law, Casson, Herchel-Bulkley and Robertson-Stiff). In this research, forty-five KCl/polymer data sets of varying compositions are prepared. Polymer addition to the system has affected the model and caused a variation of ...
Effect of clay on crude oil combustion by thermal analysis techniques
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2006-05-01)
This research was aimed to investigate the role of clay on the combustion and kinetic behavior of crude oils in limestone matrix. For this purpose, simultaneous TG (thermogravimetry) and DTA (differential thermal analysis) experiments were performed at three different heating rates as 10-15 and 20 degrees C min(-1), respectively. A uniform trend of decreasing activation energies was observed with the addition of clay. It was concluded that clays surface area affects the values of Arrhenius constant, while i...
Effects of silica nanoparticles on the performance of water-based drilling fluids
Kök, Mustafa Verşan; Bal, Berk (2019-09-01)
In this research, two groups of experiments were conducted to investigate the effects of silica (SiO2) nanoparticles on the filtration and rheological properties of water-based drilling fluids. In the first group, bentonite, chrome-free lignosulfonate (CFL) and carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) were used in different concentrations to obtain base fluids. Nanofluids were prepared by adding 0.5 g of four different silica nanoparticles into these drilling fluids. Comparison of rheological properties, fluid loss am...

Odabaşı, Selda; Üner, Deniz; Department of Chemical Engineering (2018)
The effect of cobalt doping on photocatalytic activity of lead titanate was studied by NO oxidation and TPx analyses. PbTiO3, Pb0.875Co0.125TiO3, Pb0.75Co0.25TiO3 and Pb0.5Co0.5TiO3 were synthesized by sol-gel method. Temperature programmed reduction and UV-desorption experiments were used to demonstrate the reducibility of TiO2, which is a commercial photocatalyst, 0.5 wt% Pt/TiO2 and synthesized perovskites under UV irradiation. By comparing the amount of hydrogen used to reduce fresh and UV treated sampl...
