    Abstract: High – speed steels are the most widely used tool material in small and medium scale industries, owing to their excellent toughness and economic price over their competitors. But the wear resistance and hot hardness of high-speed steels are poor compared to tools made out of carbides. Recent investigations, on the effect of cryogenic treatment have... Show More

    Abstract: Cement quality is typically assessed by its compressive strength development in mortar and concrete. The basis for this property is a well-burned clinker with consistent chemical composition and free lime. The main reason for the clinker free lime to change in situation with stable kiln operation is variation in the chemical composition of the kiln... Show More
