Abstract:
The compressive strength of blast furnace slag concrete containing slag/(cement + slag) ratios of 0, 0.3, 0.5, and 0.7 was followed by changing the curing conditions. The specimens were cured in air or water at 10, 20, or 40 C, and the strength development after 1, 4, 8, 13, and 26 weeks was determined. Equations were developed for strength based on maturity, curing, method, age of concrete, and amount of slag.
