Effect of Pozzolan Content and Fineness on Early Hydration of Interground Blended Cements

The chemical composition and heat evolution of <45 mu m (fine), and > 45 mu m ( coarse) portions of interground, natural pozzolan-blended cements were investigated. Cements with four different pozzolan contents were ground to 300 m(2)/kg, 500 m(2)/kg, and 600 m(2)/kg fineness and sieved through a 45 m sieve. Clinker, pozzolan, and gypsum contents in the fine and coarse portions after sieving were determined and compared with the unsieved cements. Heat of hydration evolution of the samples were determined up to 48 h using isothermal calorimetry. The fine portions of the cements always contained more gypsum, had higher pozzolan-to-clinker ratios, and slightly higher tricalcium silicate contents, which influenced the rate of heat development at early ages. The fine portions contribute more to the total early heat evolved than the coarse portions. A small amount of pozzolan enhances early hydration. The heat evolved up to 24 h was related linearly to the heat evolved up to 48 h. Such observations could be useful in the modeling of early hydration of blended cements.


Effect of Midsynthesis Addition of Silica to the Synthesis Medium on the Properties of MFI-Type Zeolite Membranes
Soydas, Belma; Kalıpçılar, Halil; Culfaz, Ali (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2010-06-02)
Thin zeolite membranes of MFI type were prepared on alpha-Al2O3 supports by midsynthesis addition of silica in a recirculating flow system at 95 degrees C The synthesis was started with the batch composition of 80SiO(2): 30TPAOH:1500H(2)O which was changed to 80SiO(2)center dot 9TPAOH:1500H(2)O by addition of silica Mkt 24, 48, or 72 h Compared to synthesis at constant composition. it is possible to affect the rates of nucleation and crystal growth to obtain membranes with better quality by changing the ove...
Effect of calcium oxide addition on carbothermic formation of hexagonal boron nitride
Özkenter, Ali Arda; Sevinç, Naci; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2009)
Hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) formation by carbothermic reduction of B2O3 under nitrogen atmosphere at 1500°C and effect of CaO addition into the initial B2O3 – active C mixture were investigated during this study. Reaction products were characterized by powder X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and quantitative chemical analysis. Main aim of this study was to investigate the presence of a second reaction mechanism that catalytically affects h-BN formation during CaO or CaCO3 addition in...

Yildirim, Mehmet; Akdeniz, Mahmut Vedat; Mehrabov, Amdulla (2018-10-01)
The effects of Mo addition on microstructures, phase relationships, order-disorder phase-transition temperatures and room-temperature mechanical properties of Fe50Al50-nMon alloys (n=1, 3, 5, 7, and 9, mole fraction, %) were investigated after solidification and heat treatment. Structural characterization of the samples was performed via X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and differential scanning calorimetry. Room-temperature mechanical properties were investigated by conducting co...
Effect of calcium carbonate addition on carbothermic formation of hexagonal boron nitride
ÇAMURLU, HASAN ERDEM; SEVİNÇ, NACİ; Topkaya, Yavuz Ali (Elsevier BV, 2008-01-01)
Effect of CaCO3 on formation of hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) was investigated by holding CaCO3 free and CaCO3 added activated carbon-boric oxide mixtures under nitrogen atmosphere at 1500 degrees C for 30-120 min. Amount of CaCO3 addition was varied in the range of 0-50 wt.% of the initial mixture. Products were characterized by powder X-ray diffractometry, FT-IR analysis, quantitative chemical analysis, scanning electron microscopy and BET specific surface area analysis. It was observed that calcium carb...
Effect of particle size on the thermal and combustion properties of coal
Kök, Mustafa Verşan; Hiçyilmaz, C.; Karacan, Ö. (1997-10-22)
In this research effect of particle size on the combustion properties of Cayirhan coal sample was studied. Non-isothermal thermogravimetry and derivative thermogravimetry (TG/DTG) experiment were carried out for twelve different size fractions of the Cayirhan coal sample. Thermogravimetry experiments were performed from ambient to 900 degrees C in air atmosphere. Differential thermogravimetric data were analysed using an Arrhenius type reaction model assuming a first-order reaction. Kinetic parameters of th...
