Abstract:
The tests reported provide data on both insulating and structural concretes made with typical expanded slag aggregates. The test data provide informa-tion on strength, durability, heat transmission, and unit weight of concretes made with various cement contents and amounts of entrained air. The effects of different aggregate top sizes and of various natural sand substitutions for the fine aggregate are discussed.
