a series of methane (ch4) adsorption experiments on bulk organic rich shales and their isolated kerogens were conducted at 35 °c, 50 °c and 65 °c and ch4 pressure of up to 15 mpa under dry conditions. samples from the eocene green river formation, devonian–mississippian woodford shale and upper cretaceous cameo coal were studied to examine how differences in organic matter type

organic matter derived from decaying vegetation, that delay setting and hardening of concrete & found in fine than in coarse aggregate and. normally, the strength of concrete based on sand is used as a gauge of the harmful effects of the impurities. silt, clay and dust may form a coating on aggregate particles, resulting in weakened bond between
organic matter in water accelerates the deterioration of asphalt pavement. the scientist showed that the best indicator of concrete damage is crack width and length, and for concrete it is the degree of formation of amorphization. the research findings, including novel methods to assess deterioration, were published in the journal plos one.
organic matter in water accelerates deterioration of asphalt pavements. the scientists also showed that crack width and length is the best determinant of concrete damage, while the degree of formation of amorphization is the best determinant of deterioration.

effect of miscellaneous inorganic salts in water on properties of concrete the salt content in water adversely affect the strength of the concrete. the major salts that can be present in water are salts of manganese, tin, lead, copper and zinc. the presence of zinc chloride in water results in the retarding of concrete strength gain.
the increase in organic matter content has a significant impact on primary and secondary consolidation, inducing an increase in the void ratio, compressibility indices and creep deformations, and a decrease in the coefficient of consolidation.
coatings containing clay, silt, and organic matter are found naturally in the overlying layers of the deposit or are artificially placed on the aggregate during processing. this article is limited to the impact of clay particles on concrete compressive strength. research scope and objectives
the effect of aggregate properties on concrete concrete is a mixture of cementious material, aggregate, and water. aggregate is commonly considered inert filler, which accounts for 60 to 80 percent of the volume and 70 to 85 percent of the weight of concrete.
organic matter affects both the chemical and physical properties of the soil and its overall health. properties influenced by organic matter include: soil structure; moisture holding capacity; diversity and activity of soil organisms, both those that are beneficial and harmful to
however, increasing the number of carboxyl or hydroxyl groups affected the results, although all of them accelerated the regeneration rate of ldhs. additionally, ldhs during the regeneration have a positive adsorption effect on both o-carboxyl and o-hydroxyl aromatic compounds; however, they have shown different effects on the regeneration of ldhs.
only in organic soils with more than 95% of organic matter content and negligible clay content does adsorption occur mostly on non-specific sites. after a contamination event, two main factors account for the high transfer: the low solid-liquid distribution coefficient, which is due to the low clay content and high nh4+ concentration in the soil solution, and the low k+ availability, which
2. organic matter binds soil particles (sand, silt and clay) into structural units called aggregates. these aggregates help to maintain porous, open and granular condition. hence organic matter has a profound effect on the improvement of soil structure and thereby soil maintains favourable condition of aeration and permeability.
the influence of organic waste as an additive to concrete formulation has been studied by replacing up to 10% of cement ratio with locally sourced organic additive. the reference cement used was portland cement; three different organic wastes were used in the mixture: periwinkle shell, extracted silica from corn hob ash and coconut shell ash.
the positive effects of soil organic matter (om) on soil properties that influence crop performance are well documented. but definitive and quantitative information of differential effects of soil om contents is lacking for the northern great plains. the objective of this study was to quantify the contribution of a unit quantity of soil om to
organic matter retains plant nutrients and prevents them leaching to deeper soil layers. microorganisms are responsible for the mineralization and immobilization of n, p and s through the decomposition of organic matter (duxbury, smith and doran, 1989). thus, they contribute to the gradual and continuous liberation of plant nutrients.
the effect of organic matter on the antimicrobial activity of tea tree oil was also investigated by an organic soil neutralization test. organisms were exposed to lethal concentrations of tea tree oil ranging from 1–10% (v/v), in the presence of 1–30% (w/v) dry bakers’ yeast.
adding high organic sludge (more than 50% of the sludge weight) to concrete mixes had a moderate adverse effect on concrete compressive strength and mix workability. the reduction in compressive strength reached 13% at 90-day curing age with 5% sludge content.
accompanying formation of continental shelves would also have favored organic matter burial by providing shallow water depths, making a shorter trip for sinking pom and, hence, a greater likelihood of sedimentation. an important weathering product, called clay minerals, also assists in enhancing pom burial rates by forming mineral aggregates that shield organic matter from microbial attack.
2. active soil organic matter also referred to as detritus. 3. stable soil organic matter, often referred to as humus. the living microbial biomass includes the microorganisms responsible for decomposition (breakdown) of both plant residues and active soil organic matter or detritus. humus is the stable fraction of the soil organic matter that is
the tolerance threshold of anammox process about organic matter concentration is 300 mg/l as cod (cod/tn ratio <6). with the cod/tn ratios from 1.0 to 6.0, the values of u max and k b constants of stover‐kincannon model for ammonium removal by anammox process decrease gradually from 0.685 to 0.314 and from 0.846 to 0.498, respectively.
the results showed that a percentage of 5% low organic and high sludge by cement content could be used as an additive or as sand replacement (in case of low organic sludge) to concrete mix without causing a significant reduction in compressive strength.
soil organic matter can bond to the surface of the clays and reduce k fixation. it was hypothesized that removal of organic matter could increase the k fixation potential. to test this, an experiment determined the k fixation capacity for eight whole soils, and again with the organic matter
