Abstract:

In July of 1983, the Canada Centre for Mineral and Energy Technology of Natural Resources Canada (CANMET), in association with the American Concrete Institute (ACI) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, sponsored a 5-day international conference in Montebello, Quebec, Canada, on the use of fly ash, silica fume, slag, and other mineral by-products in concrete. The conference brought together representatives from industry, academia, and government agencies to present the latest information on these materials and to explore new areas of needed research. Since then, eight other such conferences have been held around the world (Madrid, Trondheim, Istanbul, Milwaukee, Bangkok, Madras, Las Vegas, and Warsaw). The 2007 Warsaw Conference was the last in this series. In 2017, due to the renewed interest in alternative and sustainable binders and supplementary cementitious materials, a new series was launched by Sherbrooke University (Professor Arezki Tagnit-Hamou), American Concrete Institute (ACI), and the International Union of Laboratories and Experts in Construction Materials, Systems and Structures (RILEM)—in association with a number of other organizations in Canada, the United States, and the Caribbean—sponsored the 10th ACI/RILEM International Conference on Cementitious Materials and Alternative Binders for Sustainable Concrete (ICCM2017). The conference was held October 2-4, 2017, in Montréal, Canada. The conference proceedings, containing 50 reviewed papers from more than 33 countries, were published as ACI SP-320. In 2021, UdeS, ACI, and RILEM, in association with Université de Toulouse and a number of other organizations in Canada, the United States, and Europe, sponsored the 11th ACI/RILEM International Conference on Cementitious Materials and Alternative Binders for Sustainable Concrete (ICCM2021). The conference was scheduled to take place in Toulouse, but due to COVID, it was held online June 7-10, 2021. The conference proceedings, containing 53 reviewed papers from more than 21 countries, were published as ACI SP-349. In 2024, the conference was finally held in-person in Toulouse from June 23 to 26, 2024, with the support of UdeS, ACI, and RILEM in association with Université de Toulouse (Martin Cyr) and a number of other organizations in Canada, the United States, and Europe. The purpose of this international conference was to present the latest scientific and technical information in the field of supplementary cementitious materials and novel binders for use in concrete. The new aspect of this conference is to highlight advances in the field of alternative and sustainable binders and supplementary cementitious materials for the transition to low carbon concrete. The conference proceedings, containing 78 reviewed papers from more than 25 countries, have been published as ACI SP-362. Thanks are extended to the members of the International Scientific Committee who reviewed the papers. The cooperation of the authors in accepting the reviewers’ suggestions and revising their manuscripts accordingly is greatly appreciated. The involvement of the steering committee and the organizing committee is gratefully acknowledged. Special thanks go to Chantal Brien (Université de Sherbrooke) for the administrative work associated with the conference and for processing the manuscripts for both the ACI proceedings and the supplementary volume.

Abstract:

This paper examines the influence of harvested fly ash on the properties of mortar and concrete. Class F and harvested fly ash were used at the substitution rate of 20% by weight of Portland cement. The investigated properties included heat release, consistency, setting time, compressive strength at different testing ages, absorption, the volume of permeable voids, surface resistivity, and drying shrinkage. The results revealed that the harvested fly ash produced the lowest released heat of hydration and longest setting times. Mixtures containing harvested fly ash displayed lower strength at all curing ages. Compared to traditional fly ash, harvested fly ash showed inferior transport properties for both absorption rate, permeable voids, and surface resistivity. Mixtures containing harvested fly ash showed comparable 120-day drying shrinkage when compared with the companion mortars made with traditional fly ash.

Abstract:

It is known that the use of recycled coarse aggregates (RCA) can raise a variety of problems, which are mainly due to the porosity of the old mortar contained in RCA. One of the simpler ways to solve these problems is the pre-wetting of RCA, which allows not only to minimize disadvantages but also to obtain the advantages associated with the effect of internal curing. Undoubtedly, the strongest positive effect of pre-wetted RCA is on the rheology of recycled concrete. But there are also possible positive effects of internal curing for strength and durability of blended cement concretes, which require longer curing times compared to normal Portland cement concrete. In this paper, we mostly study the influence of porous RCA on the rheology of cement paste, based on slag cement with a 75% slag content. For this purpose, the absorption properties of RCA of different sizes were studied. From this, mathematical dependences of the workability of cement systems on w/c and time could be obtained. These further underline the positive effect of pre-wetting of RCA with regard to retaining the workability of cementitious systems. This lays the basis for a broader study of pre-wetting RCA on the rheology of mixtures, strength, and durability to be covered in future publications.

Abstract:

In recent years, there has been a growing need to develop eco-efficient concrete with reduced cement content for sustainable construction practices. This paper aims to highlight the importance of the concrete net zero goal by 2050 and explore how concrete particle-packing models and limestone fillers can contribute to achieving sustainable targets. Four eco-efficient concrete mixtures with varying cement content (320, 250, 200, and 150 kg/m3) were developed. A comprehensive analysis of the hardened state properties, including surface electrical resistivity, compressive strength, and modulus of elasticity, was conducted over time for each mixture. Furthermore, this paper briefly discusses methods to analyze concrete eco-efficiency and their impact on global warming. The results presented in this study contribute to the understanding of the importance of concrete eco-efficiency and provide insights for engineers and researchers on how to evaluate concrete eco-efficiency.

Abstract:

Using particle packing models (PPMs) in combination with limestone fillers has been shown to be effective in proportioning eco-efficient concrete mixtures with reduced Portland cement content, resulting in suitable performance in fresh and short-term hardened states. However, the decrease in Portland cement and increase in limestone fillers may lower the pH of concrete, raising concerns about durability and long-term performance, potentially leading to increased corrosion of steel reinforcement in the presence of carbonation or chlorides. In this study, the performance of three eco-efficient concrete mixtures with varying cement (250, 200, and 150 kg/m3) and inert filler contents is evaluated against accelerated chloride exposure. The findings highlight the influence of the mixture proportioning and water-to-cement ratio on the resistance to chloride ingress. Ultimately, it is verified that the distance between cement particles is a major contribution towards chloride ingress.
