A study was conducted to investigate the Influence of TiO 3 on the Viscous behavior of calcium silicate melts containing 17 mass% Al 2O 3 and 10 mass% MgO. Samples were synthesized using reagent grade chemicals of CaO, SiO 2, MgO, Al 2O 3, and TiO 2. The samples were premelted at 1 773 K under 0.4 L/min of Ar in a Pt crucible to obtain a homogeneous slag sample. Post-experimental chemical composition using X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) spectroscopy showed no apparent change. The viscosity of 120 g of slag placed in a Pt crucible was measured using a rotating spindle connected to a calibrated Brookfield digital rheometer. Effect of TiO 2 at constant temperature of 1 773 K at various CaO/SiO 2 ratio was provided. The temperature dependence of the viscosity at CaO/SiO 2 of 0.8 and various TiO 2 content was shown where the viscosity decreased with increasing temperatures.
