Title: Ground Granulated Blast-Furnace Slag Based Cementing Materials Activated with Alkaline Waste Water
Author(s): R. Sersale and G. Frigione
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 721-734
Keywords: activator; carbonation depth; compressive strength; durability; freezing and thawing; ground granulated blast-furnace slag; sodium silicate; sulfate attack; waste water; zeolite
Abstract:The utilization of waste waters from zeolite production, for the activation of mixtures containing high content of granulated blast-furnace slag with moderate amounts of portland cement clinker and gypsum, was examined. The evaluation of properties of the product, depending on the composition of the starting blend, showed that good compressive strength and satisfactory resistance to carbonation, sulfate attack and freezing and thawing cycling can be obtained with some compositions.
