This paper investigates the effect of particle size distribution on the properties of blended cements incorporating ground granulated blast-furnace slag (GGBFS) and natural pozzolan (NP). Pure Portland cement (PPC), NP and GGBFS were used to obtain blended cements that contain 10, 20, 30% additives. The cements were produced by intergrinding and separate grinding and then blending. Each group had two different Blaine fineness of 280 m(2)/g and 480 m(2)/g. According to the particle size distribution (PSD) curves, 46% of the coarser specimens and 69% of the finer specimens passed through the 20 mu m sieve. It was observed that the separately ground specimens were relatively finer than the interground ones and had higher compressive strength and sulfate resistance. The separately ground coarser specimens had the lowest heat of hydration. The separately ground finer specimens, which had the highest compressive strength and sulfate resistance, had the highest percent passing for each sieve size. For these specimens 34, 69, 81 and 99% passed through 5, 20, 30 and 55 gm sieves, respectively. For the interground specimens, which had the same fineness, the respective values for the same sieves were 32, 68, 75 and 94%.


The Effect of Ultrasonication on the Size and Morphology of Iron Oxide - Chitosan Nano and Microparticles
Akin, Deniz; YAKAR, ARZU; Gündüz, Ufuk (2013-04-28)
The aim of this study is to synthesize magnetic Fe3O4-chitosan nano and microparticles (Fe3O4-CPs) by suspension cross-linking and ionic gelation methods and investigate the effect of ultrasonication on the size, morphology and magnetic properties. The synthesized particles were characterized by transmission electron microscopy (TEM), dynamic light scattering (DLS) and vibrating sample magnetometry (VSM). The results showed that the ultrasonication decreased the mean particle diameter and enhanced magnetic ...
The Thermal Characterization of Crude Oils in a Limestone Matrix of Different Particle Size
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (2014-05-03)
In the first part of this research, the effect of particle size (35-100 mesh) on the calcination kinetics of a limestone sample was investigated by thermogravimetric analysis technique. Thermal studies showed that two main weight loss regions are observed in limestone samples of different particle size. In the second part of the research, thermal analysis of a medium crude oil sample in a limestone matrix of different particle size is analyzed. Two different reaction regions were observed known as low tempe...
Effects of mix composition and water-cement ratio on the sulfate resistance of blended cements
Sahmaran, M.; Kasap, O.; Duru, K.; Yaman, İsmail Özgür (2007-03-01)
This paper presents an experimental investigation on the sulfate resistance of blended cements containing various amounts of natural pozzolan and/or Class-F fly ash. The performance of blended cements was monitored by exposing the prepared mortar specimens to a 5% Na2SO4 Solution for 78 weeks. For comparison, an ordinary Portland cement (produced with the same clinker as blended cements) and it sulfate resistant Portland cement (produced from a different clinker) were also used. In addition to the cement ch...

© 2021 Institute of Food Technologists®Abstract: The study was aimed to investigate characteristics of emulsion containing pectin, wax, maltodextrin, and carotenoid enriched flaxseed oil by means of stability, rheology, particle size, and low-resolution of time domain nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) relaxometry measurements. Emulsions were prepared with different carotenoid enriched-flaxseed oil concentrations (6%, 9%, 12%, and 15% w/w) and ratios of maltodextrin/(pectin+wax) (3:1, 6:1, 9:1, and 12:1 g/g)....
The effect of triethanolamine on thermal decomposition of GAP
Fazhoğlu, Hatice; Hacaloğlu, Jale (2002-01-01)
The effect of triethanolamine (TEA) on thermal behavior of glycidyl azide polymer (GAP) has been investigated by direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry technique. It has been observed that thermal degradation of GAP-TEA mixture also begins with the cleavage of the side groups as in the case of GAP. Again, the main decomposition started with the elimination of molecular nitrogen from the azide functional group, and a quite similar degradation mechanism has been proposed. The increase in the thermal stability of ...
