Title: Equivalent Age and Physical Properties of Mass Concrete
Author(s): Christopher C. Ferraro, Mang Tia, and Adrian M. Lawrence
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 6.1-6.18
Abstract:Mass concrete mixtures used in transportation-related construction often have large percentages of portland cement replaced by supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs), including slag cement, fly ash, or both. The principle benefit for using SCMs in mass concrete is to create a concrete mixture, which has a low temperature rise. The development of the maturity concept focused primarily on the study of concrete without SCMs. Many of the concrete mixtures being utilized today incorporate considerable amounts of SCMs. This paper investigates the relationship of equivalent age and physical properties of different mass concrete mixtures containing portland cement and SCMs.
