Optimization of Raw Material Mixes in Studying Mixed Cements and Their Physicomechnical Properties
Results are provided for a study of the optimization of a three-component raw material mix for the production of mixed cement. Optimization was performed using the ROCS software package developed by scientists from V. G. Shukhov BSTU and designed for the calculation and optimization of cement production multicomponent raw material mixtures. As a result the optimum composition of raw material mixes is obtained. Cement prepared by mixing 57% of ordinary, 40% of low-base clinker, and 3% gypsum has strength improved by 7,4 and 27,7% with respect to standard cement.
