Gypsum: Properties, Production and Applications $270.00
Editors: Delia H. Sampson
Book Description:
Gypsum is a very soft mineral composed of calcium sulfate dihydrate and often occurs in nature as flattened and often twinned crystals and transparent cleavable masses called selenite. This new book presents research data from around the globe in the study of gypsum including the mining activity and geotechnical and hydreological issues related to the presence of gypsum in Asturias, Spain; the effects of flue gas desulfurization gypsum on the performances of cement based materials; the biomechanical and biological evidences supporting the in vitro application of gypsum in three decisive spinal surgical processes and luminescence spectroscopy as a sensor for the setting of gypsum plaster.
