Producing micro and nano fibers having high water holding capacity from tomato and wheat waste products and using them in model foods
Koçak, Gönül; Mert, Behiç; Department of Food Engineering (2010)
The main objective of this study was to investigate the fibers and their effects and availability in ketchup (tomato fiber) and cake (wheat bran fiber) production. In order to this, rheological properties of ketchups with tomato fiber, and cake (100, 80, 60 g flour formulations) with wheat bran fiber in different concentrations were investigated. Tomato powder in ketchup and wheat bran in cake was used for comparison. The samples studied had pseudoplastic behavior having a definite yield stress with a good ...

Production of lightweight aerated alkali-activated slag pastes using hydrogen peroxide
Sahin, Murat; Erdoğan, Sinan Turhan; Bayer, Özgür (Elsevier BV, 2018-08-30)
This study investigated the production of lightweight aerated alkali-activated slag pastes (LAAASP) using hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). A mixture of sodium hydroxide and sodium silicate solution was used for the activation of slag. Physical, mechanical, and thermal properties of samples cured under different curing conditions were investigated. Various water-to-slag ratios (W/S) and H2O2 contents were used to explore the expansion mechanism of fresh mixtures and to investigate their effect on apparent density. ...
Production of aerated alkali-activated slag pastes and mortars using hydrogen peroxide
Şahin, Murat; Erdoğan, Sinan Turhan; Bayer, Özgür; Department of Civil Engineering (2017)
Utilization of ground granulated blast furnace slag (GGBFS) through alkali activation for the production of construction materials can provide economic and environmental advantages. In this study, cement-free lightweight composites based on the alkali activation of GGBFS were produced with the incorporation of hydrogen peroxide, and their physical, thermal, and mechanical properties were investigated, under different curing conditions. Various water-to-slag ratios (W/S), hydrogen peroxide contents, and sand...
Production of Nanoporous Glass Fiber by Selective Leaching Method
Ertuş, Emre Burak; Vakıfahmetoğlu, Çekdar; Öztürk, Abdullah (2016-12-01)
A glass of composition 4.8Na 2 O-25.2B 2 O 3-70SiO 2 was produced by melting silica, boric acid, and sodium carbonate mixture at about 1600 °C. Sodium borosilicate glass fiber was drawn while the glass melt was cooling to room temperature. The fiber sample was heat treated to provide spinodial decomposition and phase separation at 600 °C for 6 h. Also, a bulk glass piece was fabricated from the same chemical composition. The soluble alkali rich borate phase was removed by acid leaching process with hot dilu...
