Research projects on the subject Chemistry and mineralogy
Influences of temperature on interactions between superplasticizers and cements with several main constituents
The aim of this research project was to determine interactions between superplasticizers and cements in the temperature range of 5 °C (41 °F) to 30 °C (86 °F). The main focus was on superplasticizers based on polycarboxylate ether and cements with several main constituents.
Assessment of Portland cement clinker by means of microscopic and mineralogical analysis methods for the evaluation of the clinker burning process
The aim of the project was to investigate the suitability of the Ono method for evaluation of burning conditions even on clinker burnt with alternative fuels. Furthermore the focus of the project was the development of a methodology for correlations between microscopically and mineralogically analysed clinker properties and burning conditions.
Investigations on the suitability of dolomitic carbonate rocks as cement main constituent
The aim of the research project was to investigate the suitability or usefulness of dolomitic carbonate rocks as a main cement constituent and to define requirements for dolomitic carbonate rocks as required for the production of high-performance dolomitic cements and concretes of high durability.
