Flashcards in Absolute Volume Calculations 1 Deck (14)
How can density of a slurry be lowered?
By adding lightweight material
and adding water and extenders
What is bulk volume?
Total volume of material and void space
what is the weight of one gallon of water?
what is the water requirement?
The amount of water needed to hydrate the dry cement and additives to create a pumpable liquid
How can density of a slurry be increased?
By using heavier material and using less water with dispersant.
How is slurry yield expressed?
what is the slurry density?
the ratio of the liquid slurry weight by its own volume
what is absolute volume of a material?
Total volume of material
what is the slurry yield?
The ratio of the volume of slurry produced to an equivalent sack when cement and additives are mixed with water?
Name the slurry calculations
Yield, Density, and water requirement.
How is slurry density measured?
what is the cubic foot conversion to gals?
what is the absolute volume of One cubic foot of cement class G?
