• Moisten the inside surface of the apparatus and remove any surplus water. • Then fill the vertical section of the apparatus with the concrete sample. • Leave it to start for 1 minute. • Then lift the sliding gate and allow the concrete to flow out into the horizontal section. • When the concrete stops flowing, note down the distances “H1” and “H2”.
3. Materials This section will describe the materials that were used in the laboratory experiments that will be presented in this thesis. 3.1 Portland CEMENT Portland cement is composed of a combination of limestone and either shale, clay, sand, or iron. These materials are ground and blended together and heated in a kiln from 2600o F to3000o F. This causes the materials to fuse together to create clinker. Cooled clinker is then ground with gypsum (CaSO4*2H20).
3) Centrifuged at 2500 rpm for 12 mins. Upper hexane layer (supernatant) was transferred carefully into another test tube. 4) Evaporated the hexane under a stream of grade 1 nitrogen gas and added 100 µl of methanol to the residue left and vortexed for 1 min. 5) Injected 100 µl of extract in HPLC vials and closed properly. Standard curves and calculations- Retinol was quantified from standard curves peak area for each vitamin.
7 shows the graphical value of the surface roughness. Table 2 Surface value for specimen 2 Weight of SiC in gms 5 12.5 25 Surface roughness in micrometer 0.92 0.84 0.88 Fig.7 Surface roughness foe specimen 2 Conclusion From this various wt% incorporated Sic –aluminium composites 12.5 wt%. Sic incorporated specimen gives the better surface roughness value for both the specimen. Main objective of the work is to study the behavior of silicon carbide (SiC) on aluminium matrix in turning process for optimizing machining parameters in ordinary lathe. Reference  N. Tomac and K. Tonnessen, “(1992), “Machinability of particulate Aluminium Metal Matrix Composites”.
The CO2 is then converted to a new calcium carbonate cement system which is then used to produce an assortment of valuable products. The manufacturing of building materials made from this novel cement system is Calera’s main focus. According to Calera (2015), without having to be concentrated, CO2 can be captured from the emitting sources by Calera’s process and then converted into the solid material calcium carbonate, permanently trapping and isolating the
Ensure that solid is completely dissolved using a stirring rod. Next, a 10 mL beaker is filled with 3 mL of HCl and measure 10 mL of ionized water into a 140 mL beaker. Carefully turn on laboratory burner and start cleaning the Nichrome wire by dipping it into concentrated HCl acid. Hold the Nichrome wire on top of the flame and repeat the step until the wire doesn 't show any color. When the wire is clean, dip the wire again with some of the acid and dip it into the solution with the unknown compound in it.
The dry bulk density (DBD) of mortars was determined following BS EN 1015-10 (1999). It entailed weighing the mass of mortar prisms, which were dried in an oven at a constant temperature of approximately 60 C constantly until consecutive weights (within 2 h interval) were the same. Consequently, the average weight was divided by the volume to obtain the DBD. The results of DBD of mortar specimens are presented in Fig. 8.
Make top of the specimen flat and level. Place a porous stone on top of specimen level surface. Stop applying vacuum. d. Take a representative sample of the soil for moisture content determination, w e. Now place the loading cap on top of the porous stone. Roll up the top of the membrane to partly cover the sides of the loading cap and then install an O-ring over the membrane so that the membrane is tightly sealed between the O-ring and the loading
The ohm-meter reading may be converted into parts per million (ppm) using the nomograph provided. Conductivity is the reciprocal of resistivity. The chlorides concentration is what is being used to know the amount of the salt that will give the desired resistivity of the drilling mud, from which the conductivity is
