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 chemistry, water-cement (w/c) ratio of mortars was another parameter selected that will presumably affect the performance of mortars. The experimental results of expansion measurements showed that the effect of w/c ratio was more pronounced for the low sulfate resistant cements with higher C(3)A amounts, while the blended cements were less affected by an increase in the w/c ratio.


Effect of fly ash on swell pressure of an expansive soil
Çokça, Erdal (1999-12-01)
This paper discusses the effect of Fly ash on the engineering properties of expansive soils. As reviewed in literature, many previous investigations have shown promising results for improvement of expansive soil after stabilization with Fly ash. Laboratory tests have been conducted on expansive soils obtained from three different regions in Khartoum state. Various percentages of Fly ash such as 0%, 10%, 20%, 25%, and 30% by weight of soil were added to the three soils and their inf...
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)...
Effects of granulated blast furnace slag trass and limestone fineness on the properties of blended cements
Delibaş, Tuğhan; Yaman, İsmail Özgür; Hoşten, Çetin; Department of Cement Engineering (2012)
The aim of this research was to determine the effects of the fineness of different mineral additives on loss on ignition, heat of hydration, physical, mechanical and chemical properties of blended cements. For that purpose, portland cement clinker was replaced with granulated blast furnace slag (GBFS), natural pozzolan (NP) and limestone (L) at 6%, 20% and 35% replacement levels. Blended cements containing GBFS and NP were ground to a fineness of 3000, 5000 and 6000 cm2/g. Cements containing L were ground t...
Effects of silica nanoparticles on the performance of water-based drilling fluids
Kök, Mustafa Verşan; Bal, Berk (2019-09-01)
In this research, two groups of experiments were conducted to investigate the effects of silica (SiO2) nanoparticles on the filtration and rheological properties of water-based drilling fluids. In the first group, bentonite, chrome-free lignosulfonate (CFL) and carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) were used in different concentrations to obtain base fluids. Nanofluids were prepared by adding 0.5 g of four different silica nanoparticles into these drilling fluids. Comparison of rheological properties, fluid loss am...
The effect of particle size distribution on the properties of blended cements incorporating GGBFS and natural pozzolan (NP)
Binici, Hanifi; Aksogan, Orhan; Cagatay, Ismail H.; Tokyay, Mustafa; Emsen, Engin (2007-08-25)
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) cu...
