The early heat of hydration of blended cements incorporating GGBFS and ground basaltic pumice (GBP)

Tokyay, Mustafa
In this study, the effect of blended cements containing additives on the heat of hydration and the rate of heat liberation was investigated. The blended cements were prepared by using clinker, ground granulated blast-furnace slag (GGBFS) and ground basaltic pumice (GBP). Two groups of specimens were prepared by the grinding method of intergrinding and separate grinding. For each group of specimen, two Blaine values of 2800 +/- 30 cm(2)/g and 4800 +/- 30 cm(2)/g and four different ratios of additives, which were 0%, 10%, 20% and 30% of clinker by weight, were used. The effects of the grinding method, the fineness and the amount of additives on the heat of hydration were also investigated. It was found that the heat of hydration was affected by the grinding method. Also, interground coarser blended cement specimens resulted in extended time to reach the second peak compare to the separately ground finer ones. A significant reduction in the total heat of hydration was achieved in the interground coarser specimens with 30% additives. The minimum heat of hydration was obtained from the interground specimens with 30% additives and Blaine value of 2800 +/- 30 cm(2)/g. Due to lower heat of hydration this cement can be used for mass concrete construction.


The inhibitory effects of lindane in batch and upflow anaerobic sludge blanket reactors
Bayramoğlu, Tuba Hande; Demirer, Göksel Niyazi (Elsevier BV, 2003-01-01)
In this study, the inhibitory effects of lindane (LIN) on originally unacclimated mixed anaerobic cultures were investigated by anaerobic toxicity assay (ATA) experiments. ATA experiments revealed that 10 mg/l LIN exerted inhibitory effects on anaerobic cultures, which was recoverable. Continuous reactor experiments conducted to determine the inhibitory effects of LIN and the maximum LIN loading rate achievable in two-stage upflow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB) reactors indicated that anaerobic granular cu...
Investigation of the effect of hydrated lime on low temperature cracking of asphalt concrete
Varlı Bingöl, Başa; Güler, Murat.; Department of Civil Engineering (2019)
The main objective of this study is to investigate the effect of hydrated lime on low-temperature cracking resistance of hot mix asphalt (HMA) mixtures. To this end, a comprehensive laboratory experimental program is established to evaluate the influence of hydrated lime modification, aggregate type, aggregate gradation and asphalt binder aging on temperature-related failure of HMA specimens. These specimens prepared from materials obtained from Turkish General Directorate of Highways are fabricated followi...
The effects of hydrogen peroxide, gallic acid and resveratrol on growth and catalase production of aspergillus fumigatus
Doğan, Tunca; Ögel, Zümrüt Begüm; Department of Food Engineering (2008)
The aim of this study was to analyze the effect of hydrogen peroxide and selected phenolic compounds on growth and catalase production of Aspergillus fumigatus. As a result of growing A. fumigatus at different temperatures it was observed that, growth and catalase production of this species were highest at 37 °C. Catalase production was highest in the presence of 1 mM H2O2, yielding a significant 3 fold increase with respect to the control. Biomass was also increased by 1,44 fold with respect to the control...
The deactivation behavior of the TiO2 used as a photo-catalyst for benzene oxidation
Üner, Deniz (1999-01-01)
In this study, the deactivation behavior of TiO2 as a photocatalyst for benzene decomposition to carbon dioxide and water was investigated. The effect of space time on the benzene and carbon dioxide conversions were monitored. Benzene conversion and carbon dioxide production rates were not correlated, indicating accumulation of a carbon containing intermediate on the surface. This intermediate was blocking the active sites at a stiochiometry of 1 C:1 site. High space times favored the production of carbon d...
The effects of maltodextrin and gum Arabic on encapsulation of onion skin phenolic compounds
Akdeniz, Busra; Sumnu, Gulum; Şahin, Serpil (2017-01-01)
In this study, the effect of coating material and core to coating ratio on the encapsulation of phenolic compounds extracted from the onion skin was investigated. As coating material maltodextrin and gum arabic at different ratios were chosen (10:0, 6:4 and 8:2). The core to coating ratios were 1:10 and 1:20. The microcapsules were prepared with high speed homogenizer at 10000 rpm for 10 min. The freeze dried microcapsules were analysed in terms of encapsulation efficiency, antioxidant activity and particle...
