Pollution Control Engineering and Gypsum Gypsum is a widely occurring mineral, also known as plaster of Paris or calcium sulfate dihydrate (CaSO4 • 2H2O). Some common uses of gypsum are the following: • Drywall • Ingredient of plaster • Component of Portland cement • Soil conditioner • Molds and splints • Model making To produce plaster or wallboard, the gypsum must be .
11.16 Gypsum Manufacturing 11.16.1 Process Description1-2 Gypsum is calcium sulfate dihydrate (CaSO4 2H2O), a white or gray naturally occurring mineral. gypsum ore is processed into a variety of products such as a portland cement additive, soil conditioner, industrial and building plasters, and gypsum wallboard. To produce plasters or

ACG Materials mines gypsum, limestone and hard rock aggregates for the construction industry. Progressive stages of crushing and screening enable us to produce a range of aggregate sizes. Oversized stone is available where size and weight are important to address erosion control and water damage.
A Gypsum soil is an example of problematic soils and susceptible to large volumetric deformations when they become saturated. Various structures for instance: roads, spread foot, different kinds .
design. A design reliability of 80% is generally accepted in open pit design, which means allowing 20% of all wedges actually to fail. The accepted failure level determines the design bench angle. In the following example, DIPS is used to interpret the structural data and identify the joint sets for the
