  2. Broad Spectrum Absorption-Fluorescence Method for Determining Adsorption Capacity of Fly Ash

    SBC: PHOSPHORTECH            Topic: 171FH1

    Interference of unburned and activated carbon in fly ash with air-entraining admixtures (AEA’s) in fresh concrete mixtures is a major concern in the concrete industry. Therefore, a rapid and accurate measurement of adsorption capacity of fly ash is of great interest to this industry. In this project, a new method is suggested, which can qualitatively and quantitatively measure different surfact ...
