In operating Cowboy, Margot Liberty and Barry Head current the oral historical past of Ray Holmes, a Wyoming cowboy born in 1911. Holmes has spent his lifestyles on horseback, herding livestock and doing different paintings with farm animals. because the time he rode his first horse, Holmes sought after not anything greater than to be a cowboy--though his father insisted he might by no means make a residing at it.

Its cementitious property increases with the fineness of the slag (Shi 2002). 1 Definition of pozzolans The term “pozzolan” comes from the US simplification of “pozzolana” which derived from the location “Pozzuoli, Italy”. Here the Romans found a reactive silica-based material of volcanic origin which they called “pulvis puteolanus” (Everett 1967). Today, both the terms “pozzolan” and “pozzolana” are used. According to ASTM C 618 (2003), a pozzolan is defined as a “siliceous or siliceous and aluminous material which in itself possesses little or no cementitious value but will, in finely divided form and in the presence of moisture, chemically react with calcium hydroxides at ordinary temperatures to form compounds possessing cementitious properties”.

At the moment, it is still often used as an accelerator for shotcrete. Throughout this book, you can see sodium silicate is the most effective alkaline activator for many cementing systems. With the development of a new technology for producing hydrated silicate powders, the applications of soluble glass in construction have greatly expanded, such as dry glue mixtures, adhesives, oil well cements, special cements for immobilization by cementation of different hazardous, toxic and radioactive wastes, acid resistant concrete, etc.
