Lyophilized yeast biomass was mixed with 2 mL of 0.1 mol/L [Na.sub.2]C[O.sub.3] ([greater than or equal to]99%, Cat.# 451614, Sigma-Aldrich, Darmstadt, Germany) and the mixture was briefly ground with ballotini glass beads (diameter 0.2 mm) in a mortar, overlaid with liquid nitrogen, and ground again.
The water/binder ratio, metakaolin content, aggregate content (glass ballotini, 1.0-1.2 mm diameter) and curing temperature were systematically varied.
The glass beads used (Potters Ballotini Impact Bead, silica abrasion beads; Potters-Ballotini Co., Ltd, Ibaraki-ken, Japan) ranged in size from 90 to 150 [micro]m and are quoted by the manufacturer as having 664.8 x [10.sup.3] grains [g.sup.-1].

(2000) found that the bulk rate of heat transfer from air to a bed of 3 mm glass ballotini was unexpectedly low because of non-uniformities in the velocity profile.
The purpose of this paper is (i) to correct these errors, (ii) to extend the analysis to describe the course of breakthrough in beds of rectangular and circular cross-section, (iii) to re-interpret the existing experimental evidence, and (iv) to present many new experimental results on the horizontal and vertical transport of miscible ionic solutions of different concentrations and densities through inert and reactive porous materials, glass ballotini, and sepiolite, respectively.
Fluidized beds of ballotini are offered as a possible alternative curing system.
1989) using food labeled with X-ray dense glass beads (Ballotini grade 9; Jencons Scientific Limited, Leighton Buzzard, UK) added at a concentration of 7% by mass.
We investigate some problems that might arise in these circumstances by conducting miscible displacement experiments using the steady flow of simple ionic solutions through 2 saturated porous materials, one inert (glass ballotini) and one reactive (sepiolite).
The gas flow apparatus was trialled using five granular soils with different particle characteristics: fine ballotini (glass beads); 'dark mineral sand' (ilmenite); fine granular industrial silica; fine natural 'Stockton beach' (silica) sand and a 'coarse river sand fraction' ([less than or equal to] 4 mm; silica and lithic fragments).
