In most concrete markets these days, there are several varieties of pozzolans and ground slag available for use in regular and high-performance concretes. Each one has its strong points when blended with portland cement in concrete and, properly used, will provide concrete of enhanced durability. Recently, concrete containing more than one such material has become common, even to the point of being available as ternarv or quaternarv blend. This paper reviews the data available on durability of concrete produced from‘ multiple blends and discusses some of the potential benefits to specifiers and users.
