• Grinding cement

    Grinding ultra-fine cement at industrial level

    Materials World magazine
    A cementitious minerals processing technology could provide an alternative to ball mills for producing ultra-fine-particles for industrial applications, such as grouts for oil and gas exploration and high performance building products. The technology is also said to be suitable for industries handling pumice, calcium carbonate, talc, nepheline syenite, clays, ceramics, zeolites and graphite.

    The lowdown on low viscosity powders

    Materials World magazine
    A global rheological model has been developed to help predict the combined effect of shear rate, temperature and solid loading on low viscosity feedstocks used in low pressure powder injection moulding (LPIM). Producing ceramic and metal alloy parts using LPIM offers a more economical alternative to high pressure powder injection moulding (HPIM) for small series production in industries such as aerospace, medical device and automotives.
  • Farewell to BS 5268. Welcome to Eurocodes.

    The Wood Technology Society
    31 March 2010 saw the withdrawal of all parts BS 5268. For timber and wood-based products, BS 5268-2 is superseded by Eurocode 5 (EC5) or to be more precise BS EN 1995 - Design of Timber Structures
  • Top 10 papers for materials science and engineering journals freely available online

    Top 10 papers for journals within the materials science and engineering collection are freely available online in 2010. The collections represent the best articles published in the journal over the last five years, with some of which receiving a publication award from the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining. The top 10 were selected for their presentation of outstanding new research and valuable reviews of the field. Articles are available for free through individual journal websites, or at the Maney Material Science & Engineering Spotlight.
