Title: Freezing Behavior of Grouts
Containing Granulated Slag
Author(s): Pierre Claude Aitcin
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 413-423
Keywords: aggregates; blast furnace slag; calcite; compressive strength; fine aggregates; freeze-thaw durability; grout; research; tensile strength.
Abstract:Grouts containing granulated blast furnace slag melilitic type present a particular behavior with respect to a succession of freezing and thawing cycles. Such grouts become surrounded with a thin film of particularly resistant finely crystallized calcite which results from the presence of granulated slag in the grout. This film layer increases notably the values of tensile and compressive strengths at rupture of these grouts.
