Bed permeability is a crucial factor in blast furnace performance which depends on the material distribution achieved through charging. Since a homogeneous bed of pellet and sinter is recommended, it is crucial to understand whether segregation of the pellet-sinter mixture occurs during charging. The Discrete Element Method is useful in this...

The applications of architectural and automotive laminated glass continue to grow. This is largely due to the enhanced safety in extreme events, such as blast. However, the complex interaction between the glass fragments and the polymer interlayer after glass fracture is still only partially understood, with existing analysis methods adopting...

Bed permeability is a crucial factor in blast furnace efficiency and stability. The Discrete Element Method (DEM) has been used extensively to model material flow in different parts of the furnace and holds great potential for optimizing the permeability. The inherent computational load is the main bottleneck in using this method to provide...

Due to the accompanying severe consequences of explosions, the blast puts a great threat to public security. Nonlinear finite element analysis is a possible method for civil engineers to check the integrity of the structures under blast loading without underestimating the limit of the structures. However, different choices of element types...

A loss of vacuum accident in the hyperloop tunnel will likely occur during its operation, and it may have a severe impact on its operational safety. Nevertheless, the hyperloop tube breach has only been researched superficially.<br/><br/>Two aerodynamic phenomena due to the breach are identified: a (quasi-)steady underexpanded jet and an...

With the rise of hydrogen as a green alternative for fossil fuels, the demand for storage capacity of hydrogen increases significantly. Due to the high risk of explosions in urban environments it brings along, the blast analysis of buildings within in range of the explosions becomes more relevant.<br/><br/>The goal of this research is to develop...

The present study explores the possibility of replacing blast furnace slag (BFS) with coal fly ash (FA) to produce alkali-activated material (AAM) concrete with hybrid precursors. With an increased FA replacement ratio, the reaction kinetics, fresh and hardened properties of AAM mixtures have been investigated. The retardation effect on the...

This paper presents experimental investigations into the effects of ultrafine blast furnace slag on microstructure improvements against chloride penetration in saturated and unsaturated cementitious systems exposed to cyclic drying–wetting conditions. The hydration kinetics of ultrafine slag powders and pore solution chemistry in slag-blended...

Many (inter)national standards exist to evaluate the resistance of mortar and concrete to carbonation. When a carbonation coefficient is used for performance comparison of mixtures or service life prediction, the applied boundary conditions during curing, preconditioning and carbonation play a crucial role, specifically when using latent...

This study aims to interpret the early-stage rheology of alkali-activated slag (AAS) paste from microstructure perspectives. The microstructures visualized by cryogenic scanning electron microscopy (cryo-SEM) revealed the essential distinction between hydroxide and silicate-activated slag pastes. The hydroxide-based mixture showed typical...

Carbide residue activated blast furnace slag is a relatively new kind of eco-friendly construction materials. This work addresses the design of foamed lightweight concrete as road embankment material using such material. A statistical mixture design approach was adopted to assess the influence of each ingredient as well as the interaction...

Laminated glass panels are increasingly installed in glazed façades to enhance the blast protection of buildings. These ductile panels offer residual bending resistance following the fracture of the glass layers, due to the composite action of the attached glass fragments in compression and the interlayer in tension. Three-point bending tests...

To achieve the automation of blast furnace operation, an automatic control system for hot metal temperature (HMT) was developed. Nonlinear model predictive control (NMPC) which predicts up to ten-hour-ahead HMT and calculates appropriate control actions of pulverized coal rate (PCR) was constructed. Simulation validation showed that the NMPC...

Because the essential quality metrics of blast furnace slag are based on its oxide composition, the determination of chemical compositions of unhydrated slag grains in an aged concrete could be useful for understanding its past performance and in predicting the remaining service life of existing slag-bearing concrete. In this research, the...

Silicon [Si] in hot metal is an impurity acting in the steel shop as an energy source that is released by oxidation during oxygen blowing in the converter. Preferred silicon concentration in hot steel is typically 0.4 wt-% (± 0.1 wt-%), helping predictable and low-cost processing. In practice, the Si concentration is difficult to control and...

This work investigates the water permeability of alkali-activated materials (AAMs), which is one of the key transport properties beside the diffusivity to assess the material durability. The AAMs were produced from granulate blast furnaces slag (BFS) and metakaolin (MK) with various water/binder ratios of 0.35, 0.45, 0.55, and 0.75, 0.85, 0.95...
