Kinetics of thermal decomposition of Hekimhan-Deveci siderite ore samples

Alkac, Dilek
Atalay, Ümit
Different solid-state reaction models, by interpretation of the model graphs in terms of goodness of fit to real data points (R-squared), are used to evaluate the reaction mechanism and the kinetics (E, n) for the thermal decomposition of Hekimhan-Deveci siderite ore samples. Isothermal experiments at three different temperatures (T=505 degrees C, 520 degrees C, 535 degrees C) are run for t=15-150 minutes while non-isothermal experiments are conducted at single heating rate (10 degrees C/min) using thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). Three-dimensional diffusion reaction models have been noted as the solid-state reaction model representing thermal decomposition kinetics of Hekimhan-Deveci siderite. The values of activation energy (E), the optimum kinetics obtained, are E=85.53 kj/mol (Jander three-dimensional diffusion reaction model); E=85.49 kj/mol, (Ginstling-Brounshtein three-dimensional diffusion reaction model).


Correlating common breakage modes with impact breakage and ball milling of cement clinker and chromite
Camalan, Mahmut (Elsevier BV, 2020-11-01)
Understanding the mechanisms of the breakage of ore particles is important to predict the particle size distribution in size reduction operations. This paper aims to show the presence of common breakage modes in impact breakage and ball milling of the cement clinker and chromite samples. For that purpose, narrow size fractions of the two samples were broken in a drop-weight tester or ball mill by changing the degree of applied energy. Then the resultant size distributions were evaluated to seek evidence for...
Estimation of Hardgrove grindability index of Turkish coals by neural networks
Ozbayoglu, Gulhan; ÖZBAYOĞLU, AHMET MURAT; Ozbayoglu, M. Evren (Elsevier BV, 2008-01-31)
In this research, different techniques for the estimation of coal HGI values are studied. Data from 163 sub-bituminous coals from Turkey are used by featuring I I coal parameters, which include proximate analysis, group maceral analysis and rank. Nonlinear regression and neural network techniques are used for predicting the HGI values for the specified coal parameters. Results indicate that a hybrid network which is a combination of 4 separate neural networks gave the most accurate HGI prediction and all of...
CPT-based probabilistic and deterministic assessment of in situ seismic soil liquefaction potential
Moss, R. E. S.; Seed, R. B.; Kayen, R. E.; Stewart, J. P.; Kiureghian, A. Der; Çetin, Kemal Önder (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2006-08-01)
This paper presents a complete methodology for both probabilistic and deterministic assessment of seismic soil liquefaction triggering potential based on the cone penetration test (CPT). A comprehensive worldwide set of CPT-based liquefaction field case histories were compiled and back analyzed, and the data then used to develop probabilistic triggering correlations. Issues investigated in this study include improved normalization of CPT resistance measurements for the influence of effective overburden stre...

The parameters appearing in the mixture and effective modulus models proposed in Part 1 are determined through optimization by matching theoretical and experimental responses. The optimization analysis is performed in frequency space. The response quantities chosen to be matched are the complex frequency response functions (experimental and theoretical) relating the Fourier transforms of top and base accelerations of the wall. Computations in optimization analysis are carried out by introducing an object (e...
Site-Specific Design Spectra for Vertical Ground Motion
Gülerce, Zeynep (SAGE Publications, 2011-11-01)
This paper contains ground-motion prediction equations (GMPEs) for the vertical-to-horizontal spectral acceleration (V/H) ratio, and the methods for constructing vertical design spectra that are consistent with the probabilistic seismic hazard assessment results for the horizontal ground motion component. The GMPEs for V/H ratio consistent with the horizontal GMPE of Abrahamson and Silva (2008) are derived using the Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research Center's Next Generation of Ground-Motion Attenuatio...
