Effect of particle size on early heat evolution of interground natural pozzolan blended cements

Natural pozzolans are increasingly being used in blended cements due to their compositional uniformity and local abundance in some countries. They influence hydration, both at early and late ages. A control portland cement and three interground cements containing natural pozzolan were produced using a laboratory ball mill and sieved through 10-mu m, 35-mu m and 50-mu m sieves to yield different cement size subgroups. The heat evolution of each subgroup was investigated up to 2 days using isothermal calorimetry. The compositions of the size subgroups and their early hydration behaviors were found to differ from those of the unsieved cement subgroups. Subgroups containing finer pozzolan particles had higher heat of hydration due to the nucleation effect. In the coarse cement subgroups with relatively lower amounts of clinker, the dilution effect was dominant. It was shown that early heat evolution characteristics of cements can be controlled, among other ways, by adjusting the particle size distribution.


Effects of separate and intergrinding on some properties of portland composite cements
Soyluoğlu, Serdar; Tokyay, Mustafa; Department of Cement Engineering (2009)
In the production of cement, to increase the cement/clinker ratio and decrease CO2 emission, the most important alternative is to produce mineral admixture incorporated cements (CEM II-III-IV-V) instead of portland cement (CEM I). These cements are usually produced by intergrinding the portland cement clinker and the mineral admixtures. However, the difference between grindabilities of the different components of such cements may cause significant effects on the particle size distribution and many other pro...
Influence of fly ash composition on non-gray particle radiation in combusting systems
Ates, CİHAN; Selçuk, Nevin; Külah, Görkem (2018-08-01)
In this study, chemical composition dependency of both radiative properties of ash particles and radiative heat exchange are investigated for conditions typically encountered in industrial coal-fired furnaces. For that purpose, chemical composition dependent / independent complex index of refraction models are utilized to evaluate (i) spectral particle absorption efficiencies, scattering efficiencies and asymmetry factors, (ii) particle cloud properties representing pulverized coal fired furnaces (PC-Fired)...
Effect of warm mix additives on compactabilitiy of mixtures
Pamuk, Ömer Can; Öztürk, Hande Işık; Department of Civil Engineering (2019)
Warm Mix Asphalt (WMA), the technology that allows significant reduction in the mixing and compaction temperatures of asphalt mixtures, has been commonly used globally since the early 2000s. This study evaluates the effect of compaction temperature (CT) on WMA and Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) mixtures volumetrics, degradation, stability, and compactability properties. Although both Superpave Gyratory Compactor (SPGC) and Marshall hammer are used for sample preparation, the focus of this study is to develop compact...
Effect of synthesis parameters on structural properties and thermal behavior of Sol-Gel synthesized iron oxide Xerogels
Dinçer Yılmaz, Nil Ezgi; Karakaş, Gürkan; Department of Chemical Engineering (2018)
Currently used igniter system compositions are mostly based on the pyrotechnic blends of fuels and oxidizers. In this study, nanostructured metallic xerogels were synthesized by sol-gel method by using various types of proton scavengers and these metallic xerogels were used as oxidizers. In the experiments, Fe(NO3)3·9H2O was used as a precursor and a wide range of proton scavengers (propylene oxide, 1,2 epoxybutane, tetrahydrofuran, tetrahydropyran, 1,4 dioxane and ammonium hydroxide ) were used to start th...
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...
