β-Carotene adsorption on acid-activated montmorillonite
The adsorption of β-carotene from solution in benzene on acid-activated Canakkale montmorillonite of Turkey has been investigated. The adsorption isotherm had two steps. The first step was of the Langmuir type, and the ...
Kinetics of the thermal dehydration of acid-activated montmorillonite by the rising temperature technique
The activation energies of dehydration and combustion of organic materials in a clay sample, and of dehydration of natural and acid-activated montmorillonite have been determined using a rising temperature programme ...
Thermal investigation of acid-activated clay minerals
Samples of the clay mineral from the Çanakkale reserve in Turkey were activated with sulphuric acid under three different sets of conditions. DTA and TG curves of both natural and activated samples were then obtained and ...

A simulation-based optimization method for designing energy efficient buildings
(Elsevier Science Sa, Po Box 564, 1001 Lausanne, Switzerland, 2018-11-01)
Buildings have a remarkable impact on the environment, therefore finding efficient design configurations satisfying conflicting criteria such as, economic and environmental performance has become an important task. The aim ...
The effect of clay mineral content on the dynamic response of reconstituted fine grained soil
(Springer, Van Godewijckstraat 30, 3311 Gz Dordrecht, Netherlands, 2018-10)
Fine grained soils with considerable amount of silt may exhibit sand-like or clay-like behavior depending on several factors such as the amount of fines and clay content, as well as the consistency limits, other variables ...
An adaptive modal pushover analysis procedure (VMPA-A) for buildings subjected to bi-directional ground motions
A new modal pushover analysis procedure (VMPA-A) is developed and implemented in MATLAB code for three-dimensional buildings subjected to bidirectional ground motions. VMPA-A uses stepwise force patterns to represent ...
Pro-environmental Behavior of University Students: Influence of Cultural Differences
(European Center Sustainable Development, Via Dei Fiori 34, Rome, 00172, Italy, 2018)
Responsible Consumption and Production, among the Sustainable Development Goals, indicates that humans should be aware of environmental problems which are to some extent, direct or indirect consequences of their behaviors. ...
Principal Components Regression of Onboard Sound Intensity Levels
(ASCE-AMER SOC CIVIL ENGINEERS, 1801 ALEXANDER BELL DR, RESTON, VA 20191-4400 USA, 2008-11)
Roadways paved with open graded asphalt mixes typically generate lower traffic noise levels as compared to other types of pavements. A program was initiated in 2005 in California to evaluate the effectiveness of noise ...
Investigations On The Bearing Strength Of Stainless Steel Bolted Plates Under In-Plane Tension
(Techno-Press, Po Box 33, Yuseong, Daejeon 305-600, South Korea, 2009-04)
This paper presents a study on the behavior and design of bolted stainless steel plates under in-plane tension. Using an experimentally validated finite element (FE) program strength of stainless steel bolted plates under ...
