Morphological properties of barite particles ground by autogenous and ball milling were examined by three-dimensional methods, namely, Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET) nitrogen adsorption and Permaran methods in terms of surface roughness and acuteness, respectively. The experimental study showed that autogenously ground products have lower roughness and acuteness. On the other hand, Hallimond tube flotation tests were performed to evaluate the floatability of those particles ground in different environments. Morphological measurements and flotation tests revealed that particles with smooth surfaces gave better floatability.


Effect of soft fine particles on the kinetics and energetics of grinding hard coarse particles
Yılmaz, Selim; Hoşten, Çetin; Department of Mining Engineering (2016)
The main objective of this study is to investigate breakage parameters of a narrow size fraction of coarse particles of a hard mineral when ground in a mixture with fine particles of a soft mineral. For this purpose, quartz and calcite were selected as mixture components varying appreciably in hardness (quartz mohs scale:7 and calcite mohs scale:3) but having quite similar densities. Mixture feeds comprised of -1.18+0.85 mm quartz (hard and coarse) and -106 µm calcite (soft and fine) at various proportions ...
Role of shape properties of calcite and barite particles on apparent hydrophobicity
Ulusoy, U; Hicyilmaz, C; Yekeler, M (2004-08-01)
Shape properties of calcite and barite particles ground by ball, rod and autogenous mills were examined by using scanning electron microscope (SEM). Shape properties have been stated in terms of shape descriptors such as elongation ratio, flatness, roundness and relative width by measuring about 200 particles. The results were correlated with the critical surface tension (gamma(c)) of wetting determined by contact angle and micro-flotation methods. The correlations set between the shape properties and the w...
Cosymmetry preserving finite-difference methods for convection equations in a porous medium
Karasözen, Bülent (2005-09-01)
The finite-difference discretizations for the planar problem of natural convection of incompressible fluid in a porous medium which preserve the cosymmetry property and discrete symmetries are presented. The equations in stream function and temperature are computed using staggered and non-staggered schemes in uniform and nonuniform rectangular grids. (c) 2004 IMACS. Published by Elsevier B.V.

Three dimensional analysis of periodic cracking in FGM coatings under thermal stresses
Dağ, Serkan; Erdogan, Fazil (2006-10-18)
A three dimensional finite element method is used to examine periodic surface cracking problem in a functionally graded coating subjected to transient thermal loads. The ceramic/metal FGM coating is assumed to contain periodic semi-elliptical cracks and to be perfectly bonded to a homogeneous substrate. The composite structure is subjected to transient residual/thermal stresses. Temperature and displacement fields are computed using a three dimensional finite element approach. Finite element models are crea...
Thermal, kinetics, and oxidation mechanism studies of light crude oils in limestone and sandstone matrix using TG-DTG-DTA: Effect of heating rate and mesh size
Varfolomeev, Mikhail A.; Nurgaliev, Danis K.; Kök, Mustafa Verşan (2016-01-01)
This research was focused on the combustion kinetics and oxidation mechanisms of light crude oils in limestone and sandstone matrices. Similarity of the TGA-DTA curves was produced for different crude oils + limestone or sandstone mixtures indicates that the crude oil undergoes three major transitions, known as low-temperature oxidation, fuel deposition, and high-temperature oxidation when subjected to an oxidizing and constant rate environment. Kinetic analysis of the low- and high-temperature oxidation re...
