Calcined Clays for Sustainable Concrete: Proceedings of the by Karen Scrivener, Aurélie Favier

By Karen Scrivener, Aurélie Favier

This quantity specializes in learn and useful matters associated with Calcined Clays for Sustainable Concrete. the most topics are geology of clays, hydration and function of combined approach with calcined clays, alkali activated binders, fiscal and environmental affects of using calcined clays in cement established materials.

Topics addressed during this booklet contain the effect of processing on reactivity of calcined clays, impression of clay mineralogy on reactivity, geology of clay deposits, Portland-calcined clay platforms, hydration, longevity, functionality, Portland-calcined clay-limestone platforms, hydration, longevity, functionality, calcined clay-alkali structures, existence cycle research, economics and environmental effect of use of calcined clays in cement and urban and box applications.

This publication compiles different contributions of the1st overseas convention on Calcined Clays for Sustainable Concrete, which happened in Lausanne, Switzerland, June, 23-25, 2015.The papers current the newest examine of their box. It comprises approximately eighty papers and abstracts.

Overall, this paintings offers a vast view of analysis on calcined clays within the box of building and should stimulate extra study into calcined clays for sustainable concrete.
