Hydration products of slag in blended cement

Many XRD analysis results have shown the main hydration products of slag blended cement are essentially similar with that of pure Portland cement, except the amounts of CH found by this method or other are in varying degrees and less than those that should be given by the pure Portland cement consti......

Microstructure development of limestone blended cement

Though the chemical reaction of the fine particles of limestone in cement paste is limited to a low extent due to its inert property, the addition of limestone particles has significant effect on the microstructure development. Research conducted by Sellevold et al. using mercury intrusion method sh......

Low reactivity and reported reaction extent of limestone in blended cement

The extent of reaction of limestone with cement clinkers is relatively low than the corresponding values of cement clinkers, the probable cause for this as stated above arise from the low solubility and low reactivity of limestone particles, though other factors of limestone, including fineness, par......
