Title: Development of Advanced Slag Binder Concrete to Achieve High Early Strength For Construction
Appears on pages(s):
Abstract:Slag blended cements offer good durability and lower heat of hydration than traditional Portland cements. Nevertheless, slag blended cements have little application to high early strength construction due to lower early strength than Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC). This paper summarises the results of a major research project on advanced slag binder that aimed to achieve a binder that has high early strength as well as durability and low heat of hydration. The advanced slag binder consists of ground granulated iron blast furnace slag (slag) and an alkali activator. The project focused on high early strength slag-binder concrete that is applicable to construction.
