Design and development of a novel high performance emulsion explosive using nanoparticles
(Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2014)
This study investigated water-in-oil (W/O) super-concentrated emulsions used as pumpable explosives. The aqueous phase of the emulsions is a supersaturated nitrate salt solution (at room temperature), with a volume fraction ...
Rheological characterisation of highly concentrated mineral suspensions using an ultrasonic velocity profiler
(Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2007)
The rheological behaviour of non-Newtonian, highly concentrated and non-transparent fluids used in industry have so far been analysed using commercially available instruments, such as conventional rotational rheometers ...
The effect of gypsum phase components on the rheokinetics of cement paste
(Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2018)
Rheological properties of most ordinary Portland cements are dictated by the hydration reactions that their different phases experience. Cement clinker has four main phases with aluminate being the most reactive. Once in ...
