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 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 chromium(VI) on the biomass yield of activated sludge
Yetiş, Ülkü; Gokcay, CF (1999-07-15)
Effect of 1-25 mg/l of influent Cr(VI) concentrations on true biomass yield (Y-t) and decay coefficient (k(d)) of activated sludge units was investigated in this study. To this purpose, completely mixed, once-through laboratory scale activated sludge units with acclimated cultures were operated. After obtaining dilute-out curves for each Cr(VI) concentration, the values of Y-t and k(d) were determined. The results revealed that presence of Cr(VI) caused stimulatory effects on biomass yield and maintenance u...
Effect of pH, flow rate and concentration on the sorption of Pb and Cd on montmorillonite: II. Modelling
Altin, O; Ozbelge, OH; Doğu, Timur (Wiley, 1999-12-01)
A mathematical model is proposed and compared with experimental data for the migration of heavy metal ions (Pb and Cd) during the flow of aqueous solutions through calcium-saturated montmorillonite packing. The main system parameters are pH, flow rate and concentration. It is assumed that the Liquid phase in the porous montmorillonite can be divided into two regions, mobile and immobile; that adsorption and ion exchange on the clay surface are instantaneous, and that adsorption isotherms are Linear througho...
