Use of Powdered Steel Slag in Cement-Bentonite Slurry Wall Construction

Çokça, Erdal
Talefirouz, Davood
This paper presents a comprehensive laboratory investigation into the workability, permeability and unconfined compressive strength of powdered-steel-slag, lime-amended cement-bentonite backfills using several series of mixtures. Prepared mixtures comprise various proportions of cement, bentonite, powdered steel slag, and lime, which have been tested for particle size distribution (PSD), liquid limit, plastic limit, permeability, and unconfined compressive strength (UCS). For each mixture, the effect of varying curing time was investigated. The results show the permeability of the powdered steel-slag, lime-amended cement-bentonite backfill is near enough to the 10-9 m/s (10-7 cm/s) required by standards. The laboratory observations clearly show that cement-bentonite-steel slag (CBS) backfill-evaluated in this study strengthens with time. When placed, the backfill is viscous liquid; later, it is a material strong enough to stand vertically. Amended mixtures including 9% of bentonite content have identified that they do not only give higher strength values but also present lower permeability considers to other mixtures as two most important keys in slurry wall construction. Therefore, it is concluded that CB–powdered steel slag–lime blended mixtures are superior materials for constructing slurry walls.

Use of general purpose adsorption isotherms for heavy metal clay mineral interactions
Altin, O; Özbelge, Hilmi Önder; Dogu, T (Elsevier BV, 1998-02-01)
General purpose adsorption isotherm equations were fitted to the sorption data of lead and cadmium on both unmodified and Ca-saturated kaolinite and montmorillonite. Langmuir-Freundlich, Redlich-Petersen, Toth, Dubinin-Radushkevich, competitive Langmuir, and some modified forms of these isotherms were fitted to experimental data, and their goodnesses of fit are compared. The adjustable parameters of the Langmuir-and Freundlich-based isotherms were estimated by nonlinear least-squares analysis. The applicati...
Use of multi-walled carbon nanotubes in matrix solid phase dispersion extraction combined with gas chromatography
Njie, Njaw; Aygün, Rüveyde Sezer; Department of Chemistry (2008)
The use of Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotubes (MWCNT) as solid sorbent in Matrix Solid-Phase Dispersion (MSPD) extraction and preconcentration method was presented to determine some commonly used organophosphorus insecticides/OPIs in honey samples using a Gas Chromatography Flame Ionization Detector (GC-FID). OPIs are poisonous compounds used to kill insects and rodents by affecting their nervous system. The limit of detections obtained after MSPD extraction were 7.0 ng/g for Malathion, Malaoxon and Fenitrothion...
Pyrolysis analysis and kinetics of crude oils
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (1998-01-01)
This research presents the results of an experimental study on the determination of pyrolysis behaviour and kinetics of six crude oils by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and thermogravimetry (TG/DTG). Crude oil pyrolysis indicated two main temperature ranges where loss of mass was observed. The first region between ambient to 400 degrees C was distillation. The second region between 400 and 600 degrees C was visbreaking and thermal cracking. Arrhenius-type kinetic model is used to determine the kine...
Application of computer-aided injection moulding simulation for thermoplastic materials
Onalir, B; Kaftanoglu, B; Balkan, Raif Tuna (1998-01-01)
This paper presents the computer-aided simulation of an injection moulding process for thermoplastic materials. The reasons for using computer simulation for the injection moulding process are discussed together with description of the mould-filling and cooling phenomena. The paper also traces the difficulties in transferring the geometry of the part database from a computer-aided design environment to a computer-aided analysis environment by proposing several solutions for plastic products. Details of simu...
Modeling of Magnetic Properties of Nanocrystalline La-doped Barium Hexaferrite
KÜÇÜK, İLKER; Sozeri, Huseyin; Ozkan, Husnu (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2011-05-01)
In this paper an artificial neural network (ANN) has been developed to compute the magnetization of the pure and La-doped barium ferrite powders synthesized in ammonium nitrate melt. The input parameters were: the Fe/Ba ratio, La content, sintering temperature, HCl washing and applied magnetic field. A total of 8284 input data set from currently measured 35 different samples with different Fe/Ba ratios, La contents and washed or not washed in HCl were available. These data were used in the training set for ...
