Production of lightweight aerated alkali-activated slag pastes using hydrogen peroxide

2018-08-30
This study investigated the production of lightweight aerated alkali-activated slag pastes (LAAASP) using hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). A mixture of sodium hydroxide and sodium silicate solution was used for the activation of slag. Physical, mechanical, and thermal properties of samples cured under different curing conditions were investigated. Various water-to-slag ratios (W/S) and H2O2 contents were used to explore the expansion mechanism of fresh mixtures and to investigate their effect on apparent density. The LAAASP produced were in the apparent density range of 516-1199 kg/m(3 )and had 0.5-30.0 MPa compressive strength. Thermal conductivities of aerated samples varied from 0.117 to 0.206 W/m . K in the dry density range of 480-1098 kg/m(3) and were lower than thermal conductivities reported for autoclaved aerated concrete. The use of more than 0.75% H2O2 by mass of slag was found to be non-essential to achieve low-density pastes.

Buyukyagci, Arzu; Tuzcu, Goezde; Aras, Leyla (Elsevier BV, 2009-07-01)
Water-soluble copolymers of methoxy polyethylene glycol acrylate (mPEGA) and 2-acrylamido-2-methyl-1-propanesulfonic acid (AMPS) were synthesized by free radicalic polymerization and evaluated as slump-retaining dispersant for cement particles. The slump-retaining effect of the synthesized copolymers was studied in terms of reaction pH, composition, and molecular weight of mPEG side chains. mPEG grafted copolymers (mPEGA-co-AMPS) were characterized by FTIR, H-1 NMR. In this study, dilute solution viscometry...

Fluidised bed combustion (FBC) ashes containing a significant amount of free calcium oxide and calcium sulfate in addition to valuable inorganic acidic oxide ingredients such as silicon oxide, ferric oxide and aluminium oxide can be utilised as potential raw materials in the production of non-expansive belite-rich calcium sulfoaluminate cement, which is one of the special cement types having performance characteristics similar to those of ordinary Portland cement in addition to having lower energy requireme...
Determination of the elastic properties of amorphous materials: Case study of alkali-silica reaction gel
Moon, Juhyuk; Speziale, Sergio; Akgül, Çağla; KALKAN, BORA; Clark, Simon M; Monteiro, Paulo JM (Elsevier BV, 2013-12-01)
The gel formed during alkali-silica reaction (ASR) can lead to cracking and deterioration of a concrete structure. The elastic properties of the ASR gel using X-ray absorption and Brillouin spectroscopy measurements are reported. X-ray absorption was used to determine the density of the gel as a function of pressure, and the result yields an isothermal bulk modulus of 33 +/- 2 GPa. Brillouin spectroscopy was applied to measure isentropic bulk (24.9-34.0 GPa) and shear moduli (8.7-10.1 GPa) of the gel. The r...
Synthesis of silver nanoparticles by oleylamine-oleic acid reduction and its use in making nanocable by coaxial electrospinning
Çınar, Simge; MAVİŞ, BORA; Çolak, Üner (American Scientific Publishers, 2011-12-01)
In the present study, silver nanoparticles were produced by hydrazine hydrate and oleylamine/oleic acid systems in order to investigate the effects of reducing agents with different strengths on the reduction mechanism. Particle size and size distribution of silver particles produced by slow reducing system were studied in detail by using transmission electron microscopy (TEM), X-Ray Diffraction (XRD), photon correlation spectroscopy (PCS), and surface plasmon resonance spectroscopy (SPR). Finally, reductio...
Properties of blended cements with thermally activated kaolin
Arikan, Metin; Sobolev, Konstantin; Ertuen, Tomris; Yeginobali, Asim; Turker, Pelin (Elsevier BV, 2009-01-01)
Kaolin, one of the materials of major importance for the ceramic and paper industry, is also used in the construction industry as a raw material for the production of white cement clinker and, in the form of metakaolin, as an artificial pozzolanic additive for concrete. Metakaolin is a vital component of high-performance and architectural concrete; however, its application in regular concrete is very limited due to relatively high production costs. This report evaluates the performance of a low-cost metakao...
