Abstract The objectives of this study is to evaluate the pozzolanic reactivity of mortars with two mineral admixtures (Metakaolin and BFS) in substitution of cement. The rate of substitution is fixed after optimization of the mechanical results. Metakaolin and the BFS from blast furnaces have been used with 10% and 40% respectively to the replacement of the cement. At long time, the use of two admixtures provides better results to those of the mortar of reference at early age, The mortar containing metakaolin provides results better than the mortar of reference, while mortar containing BFS gives inferior results up to 70% of the referential mortar. Metakaolin by its important specific surface area and its reactivity improves the mechanical behavior at early ages. However, the BFS reacts very late. In order to improve the mechanical results at early and long time, a new mortar were casted with 10% of MK and 40% of BFS in substitution of the cement. Isothermal calorimetry and compressive strength tests were performed. Hydration phenomena were also analyzed.

Abstract The influence of incorporating ground granulated blastfurnace slag (GGBS) and metakaolin (MK) on concrete strength is investigated. Portland cement was partially replaced with 0–80% GGBS and 0–20% MK. The water to cementitious materials ratio was maintained at 0.5 for all mixes. The incorporation of MK causes an increase in strength, especially during the early ages of curing. However, the use of GGBS in concrete reduces the strength during the first 28 days. Beyond 28 days, the strengt...

For each tonne of cement used, the cement industry emits an average of 0.9 t of CO2, which contributes to the greenhouse effect. To satisfy the demands of the concrete industry for cementing materials, new environmental requirements, and the implementation of a sustainable development policy, the use of supplementary cementitious material as a replacement of part of the Portland cement has proven to be an interesting avenue that has not yet been fully explored. Granulated blast-furnace slag has ...

Abstract This paper aims to investigate the hydration and pozzolanic reactions in cement pastes with different levels of metakaolin replacement, using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and theoretical analysis based on reaction stoichiometry. It was found that the DSC technique could follow the hydration process quantitatively by measuring the peak temperature and enthalpy corresponding to decomposition of hydration products, as functions of age. The pozzolanic process can also be followed...

Reactions of colloidal silica fumes with calcium hydroxide or hydrating tricalcium silicate (C3S) have been studied using calorimetry, chemical analyses, and scanning electron microscopy. Silica fume reacts immediately with calcium hydroxide forming a colloidal calcium silicate hydrate (C-S-H) similar to that formed by the hydration of C3S. When excess silica is present it reacts with C-S-H already formed to produce a new, highly polymerized C-S-H, having a very low C/S ratio (1.0). Silica fume ...

Abstract Alkali activation has gradually become an important means to treat solid waste and produce green cementitious materials. The alkali-activated samples were successfully prepared by waste dolomite powder, whose consolidated-performance and environmental friendliness are both excellent. This work intensively investigates the preparation process and thermo-mechanical properties of alkali-activated waste dolomite powder, and emphatically analyses the consolidation mechanism, which is distinc...

Researches on the use of metakaolin, as a supplementary cementitious material (SCM), are growing worldwide due to its environmental and technical benefits. Metakaolin is usually obtained by calcining kaolinitic clay; however, the thermal cycle of calcination should ensure the optimal kaolin to Metakaolin conversion. This experimental investigation aims to examine the effect of calcination parameters on two Algerian kaolins (KT1 and KT2), used to elaborate Metakaolins. The raw ground materials ha...
Atualmente, os residuos da industria de cerâmica vermelha apresentam-se como uma alternativa em potencial para uso em matrizes cimenticias como adicao mineral ou pozolana de baixa reatividade. Este estudo, teve como objetivo avaliar a influencia da substituicao parcial do cimento CP V ARI por residuo da industria de cerâmica vermelha em placas de fibrocimento. O cimento foi substituido em volume nas percentagens de 0, 15, 25 e 50%. Essas combinacoes foram reforcadas com fibras de celulose e poli...

Abstract The construction industries are focusing on the use of innovative, cost efficient and ecofriendly materials in infrastructural development. In view of this, there is need to search for alternative construction materials that can be used in place of the conventional normal concrete. There have been numerous materials that could be used as supplementary cementitious materials in concrete thereby making it sustainable and durable. Some of these materials are naturally occurring or byproduc...

This work aims to study the influence of submicron metakaolin (SMK) on the mechanical strength, pore structure, and microstructural properties of hardened cement-based slurry (HCS). Portland cement was replaced by SMK at a proportion of 1, 3, 5, and 7 wt%. The compressive strength and flexural strength of the HCS samples were tested at a curing period of 3, 7, 14, and 28 days, and the pore structure of the specimens was analyzed by mercury intrusion porosimetry (MIP) at a curing period of 3 and ...

At present, not many studies have considered methods to quantitatively evaluate the reaction efficiency of granulated blast furnace slag (GBFS) at different curing temperatures. For high volume slag concrete, when the replacement ratio exceeds a certain ’threshold’ value, the superfluous and ineffective slag will no longer react in concrete but simply behave as a fine aggregate, which may cause the decrement of strength. The ’threshold’ value depends on the reaction efficiency of slag. In this s...

Abstract Nowadays pozzolans are widely used as cement replacement materials in concrete because of their environmental, mechanical and durability benefits. The pozzolans activities vary under the influence of their Nano-structures and chemical compositions. In this paper, molecular dynamics simulations were employed to propose a new method to simply compare the activity of pozzolans. For this purpose, the adsorption of water molecules on the surfaces of pozzolanic minerals was simulated and wate...
