gravity separation is the separation of two or more minerals of different specific gravity by their relative movement in response to the force of gravity and one or more other forces (such as centrifugal, magnetic, drag or buoyant forces).
concrete is a construction material made of a mixture of glue (cement, fly ash, ggbf-slag, etc), rocks (coarse aggregate), sand (fine aggregate) and water that hardens to a stone-like mass. chemical admixtures are frequently used to accelerate or retard set time, improve workability, reduce mixing water
for major construction jobs with concrete, machine mixing is an absolutely essential method. a concrete mixer is a device that homogeneously mix cement, aggregates, and water to form concrete. a typical concrete mixers uses a revolving drum to mix the components. concrete mixers of several designs and capacities are available.
evaporation is a technique used to separate out homogenous mixtures where there is one or more dissolved solids. this method drives off the liquid components from the solid components. the process typically involves heating the mixture until no more liquid remains, prior to using this method, the mixture should only contain one liquid component, unless it is not important to isolate the liquid components.
as for the need for separation, it is usually done to remove all the unwanted materials and obtain useful components. methods of separating mixtures. some of the common methods of separating substances or mixtures are: handpicking; threshing; winnowing; sieving; evaporation; distillation; filtration or sedimentation; separating funnel; magnetic separation
fineness test of cement procedure: collect a sample of cement and rub with your hands. the fineness test sample should be free of lumps. take 100 gm of cement sample and note its weight as w1. drop 100 gm of cement in 90 µm sieve and close it with the lid. now, shake the sieve with your hands by agitating the sieve in planetary and linear
the test procedure of separation rate was as follows: pour the grout into a ϕ 50 × 50 mm cylindrical mould; after hardening, demould the specimen and cut it into halves and measure the weight of each half. the separation rate is determined by the difference in specific gravity between top and bottom halves, which is given in the formula below.
it is necessary that the mixture flow slowly under gravity, but it must not be too thin in order to eliminate running. the mixing of the cement and asbestos is performed by a number of different conven-tional procedures which includes those used in the wet mechanical process.
a properly designed concrete mixture will possess the desired workability for the fresh concrete and the required durability and strength for the hardened concrete. typically, the volume of a mix is about 10 to 15% cementitious material, 60 to 75% aggregate, and 15 to 20% water. entrained air in concrete mixes may also take up to 8%.
sedimentation and gravity separation remove silts and suspended solids by allowing the wastewater to remain undisturbed or slightly disturbed for different intervals of time in different tanks. the time required for settling these solids depends on the size and density of solids, and the velocity of water in motion.
typically the speed for mixing is 1.57 rad/s (15 rpm), while the transport of pre-mixed concrete uses only 0.2 rad/s (2 rpm) to 0.6 rad/s (6 rpm) . in the united states, most ready-mixed concrete is mixed in trucks  and not pre-mixed in a plant. in a tilting
tremie concrete concrete is placed by the tremie method gravity fed through a vertical pipe to seal cofferdams and caissons, build underwater structures, and to hold tunnel sections and other objects in place under water.
3. determine the specific gravity of the aggregate combination and asphalt cement. 4. prepare the trial specimens with varying asphalt contents. 5. determine the specific gravity of each compacted specimen. 6. perform stability tests on the specimens. 7. calculate the percentage of voids, and percent voids filled with bitumen in each specimen. 8.
vibration, either internal or external, is the most widely used method for consolidating concrete. when concrete is vibrated, the internal friction between the aggregate particles is temporarily destroyed and the concrete behaves like a liquid; it settles in the forms under the action of gravity and the large entrapped air voids rise more easily to the surface.

gravity earth-retaining structures, consisting of a reinforced concrete footing and a reinforced concrete masonry cantilever stem (figure 1.1). the retained soil exerts an active pressure on the infill material above the heel of the base (in type 1) and this, in turn, exerts an active force on the stem of the wall. in

astm's cement and concrete standards are instrumental in the evaluation and testing of concrete, cement, and aggregates. concrete can have different properties depending upon the mixture that is used in creating it, which contains cement, chemical admixtures, and aggregates.

most of these materials are synthetic, however, some natural materials can be treated to provide low specific gravity. clays, shale, or slates will bloat at high temperatures resulting in an expansion in volume. other synthetic materials are produced using pyroprocessing techniques, such
