Title: Sulfate Resistance of Concrete Produced with Portland-Limestone Cements (PLC) and Supplementary Cementitious Materials
Author(s): R. Doug Hooton
Publication: Web Session (Outdated)
Appears on pages(s):
Abstract:The objective of this course is to introduce and explain by case studies a new document, ACI 211-N “Guide to Proportioning Concrete Mixes with Ground Limestone and Mineral Fillers”. This main objective is to propose that a blended portland limestone cement (PLC) with supplementary cementitious material (SCM) cement blend can provide an effective synergy to produce a comparable concrete to a portland cement. This course will provide studies that show different ways that PLC and SCM concretes can attain adequate compressive strength and durability to be used in many concrete applications.
