Focusing on the combustion properties of binder added coal

Hicyilmaz, C
Altun, Naci Emre
Coal briquettes and their binders were always tested from the view of resistivity to transportation, loading and storage by measuring the abrasion index and strength to crushing. The binders used in coal briquetting also affect to the combustion properties of coal. Tuncbilek lignite sample and Polymer Laboratories PL-TGA 1500 thermogravimetric analyzer (TG/DTG) for the determination of the combustion properties of the sample were used throughout the research. Molasses, CMC, Sulphide Liquor, Corn Starch, Crude oil, Lime and Sodium Silicate were used as binders with a ratio of 10% by weight. Molasses and CMC decreased the activation energies of the samples and the residue at the end of the combustion. Crude oil, Sulphide Liquor and Corn Starch increased the calorific value of the samples, however they also increased the activation energies. II was observed that Lime and Sodium Silicate were the most disadvantageous binders by not only increasing the activation energies and residue at the end of combustion, but also decreasing the calorific values of the samples.


Effect of different binders on the combustion properties of lignite - Part I. Effect on thermal properties
Altun, Naci Emre; Kök, Mustafa Verşan (2001-01-01)
Coal briquettes and the binders were tested from the view of resistivity to transportation, loading and storage by measuring the abrasion index and strength to crushing. The binders used in coal briquetting also affect the combustion properties of the coal. Combustion properties of the Tuncbilek lignite and different binders were analysed by thermogravimetric (TG/DTG) methods. Molasses, carboxyl methylcellulose (CMC), sulphide liquor, heavy crude oil, sodium silicate, cornstarch, lime, peridur, and bentonit...
A Comparative study of cuttings transport performance of water versus polymer-based fluids in horizontal well drilling
Allahvirdizadeh, Payam; Parlaktuna, Mahmut; Kuru, Ergun; Department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering (2015)
High drilling fluid circulation rate is often needed for effective transportation of cuttings in horizontal and extended reach wells, which may not be always achievable due to the risk of fracturing the rock by increased bottom hole dynamic pressure and also limit of pumps capacity. Keeping the bottom hole pressure low enough while increasing the flow rate is, therefore, a major challenge in horizontal well drilling operations. A potential solution to this problem would be to use drag reducing additives in ...
Analysis of mechanical behavior of high performance cement based composite slabs under impact loading
Satıoğlu, Azize Ceren; Gülkan, Polat; Department of Civil Engineering (2009)
Studies on the behavior of steel fiber reinforced concrete (SFRC) and slurry infiltrated fibrous concrete (SIFCON) to impact loading have started in recent years. Using these relatively new materials, higher values of tensile and compressive strength can be obtained with greater fracture toughness and energy absorption capacity, and therefore they carry a considerable importance in the design of protective structures. In this thesis, computational analyses concerning impact loading effect on concrete, steel...
Development of a computer program for the analysis of fatigue crack growth
Dalgıç, Ali Murtaza; Bilir, Ömer Gündüz; Kadıoğlu, Suat; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2002)
In this study, a computer program is developed for fatigue crack propagation analysis of metal alloys and random fiber composites. The developed program takes the fatigue crack propagation experiment data in the form of crack length vs. number of cycles from the user. The user also, selects the crack geometry and defines loading conditions of the test specimen. Developed program analyze the experimental data and evaluates crack growth rate and stress intensity range. For the calculated or ready crack growth...
Investigation of low temperature cracking in asphalt concrete pavement
Qadir, Adnan; Güler, Murat; Department of Civil Engineering (2010)
In this study, low temperature cracking of asphalt concrete is investigated based on a laboratory experimental program including the design variables of aggregate type, gradation, asphalt content, binder grading, binder modification, and the experimental variables of cooling rate, and specimen size. The design of experiment is proposed according to the fractional factorial design principles to reduce the required number of test specimens. Mix designs are performed according to the Superpave mix design guide...
