Title: Case Studies - North American Mass-Concrete Projects Featuring ASTM C989 Slag Cement
Author(s): M.D. Luther, P. Bohme, and W. Wilson
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 13-30
Keywords: compressive strength; mass concrete; temperature; slag cement.
Abstract:This paper is a collection of over 30 brief case studies about mass-concrete projects using ASTM C989 (AASHTO M302), or similar, slag cement (formerly called ground granulated blast-furnace slag) - undertaken to learn more about concrete mixtures and considerations as they are applied in the field. With
the exception of some ternary mixes, generally, the slag cement amounts equaled or exceeded the amounts of Portland cement employed in the mixtures. The information showed that a broad spectrum of proportions
featuring slag cement of all grades have been used to achieve desired mass-concrete properties and outcome, including staying under a maximum core temperature, holding within a maximum differential temperature, and
achieving specified strength.
