Abstract:

The American Society of Concrete Contractors submitted a proposal to the Charles Pankow Foundation for preparation of a Users’ Guide to “Green” Concrete in Building Construction. In this context, “green” refers to concretes made with supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) replacing varying amounts of portland cements to reduce the carbon footprint. As part of the preparation, several green concrete mixtures were tested and the data presented to provide information about mixture composition that is usually proprietary and not available to the industry or public. The relationship between cylinder strength and strength of cores from the same batch of concrete was of particular interest. The data was intended to supplement the limited amount of published data related to field experience with green concrete.
