Cement mortar composite has a wide range of applications on construction sites, including masonry, plastering and concrete repair. In construction sites, scabbling process is a method to remove from a few millimeters to several centimeters of defect concrete surfaces. As a result, it is essential to investigate the scabbling characteristics for cement mortar with different …

Determination of interface shear strength is crucial in the design of many geotechnical structures. To study the effect of interface roughness, particle geometry (size and shape), and sand gradation on the interface friction angle, direct interface shear tests were performed for 10 sands with varying particle sizes, shapes, and gradations and four steel surfaces with different levels of …

To make calcium silicate bricks, silica sand is mixed with high calcium lime at a sand–lime ratio of 10 or 20. The mix is then compressed into moulds and "autoclaved" at about 170°C (340°F) for several hours. Some gel, similar to the calcium silicate hydrate gel of the type that is formed by cement, is formed, and this bonds the sand particles together.

The grading curve of used silica sand is presented in Fi-gure 1. In order to activate the base materials, commercial grade sodium hydroxide (NaOH) and sodium silicate (Na 2 SiO 3) solutions were used as alkaline activator. The sodium silicate solution (8 % Na 2 O, 27 % SiO 2 and 65 % H 2O) and sodium hydroxide (NaOH) in flakes

Viscosity, density, pour point, flash point, and oxidation stability are some quality properties of engine oil. The entrance of any contamination into the engine oil can change its properties. In the present study the effect of calcite and silica sand dust particles on the quality of engine oil, namely, Sepahan Oil Production API, SC-CC, SAE 40, was investigated.

The silica sand was collected from Thal desert near district Khushab, in Punjab province of Pakistan. This silica sand was washed with distilled water, then dried, and sieved using sieve shaker. The silica sand particles maximum retained on 212 μm was milled to nanoparticles using a ball mill at room temperature with 100 rpm speed for 6 h.
