Abstract

A rapid multielement analysis procedure for cement and ceramic type materials has been developed which uses pelletized powders and an exponential correction to the observed x-ray intensities. Only the more significant interactions are considered in an iterative process requiring a minimum of standards. The interaction coefficients are determined by a nonlinear multiple least squares fit of the standards. Average deviations obtained for the analysis of light elements in cement ranged from a low of 0.006% for K2O to a high of 0.13% absolute for SiO2.
