Description

This research evaluates ways of improving early-age property of supersulfated cements. Mechanical performance of SSC was studied after optimizing the slag- calcium sulfate- alkali activator composition. This study was conducted using four slags of different chemical composition. The purpose was to find a correlation between slag composition and compressive strength and determine the influence of anhydrite content and alkali activator content on the hydration process of SSC. The results demonstrated that the compressive strength of mortars was strongly influenced by the Al2O3 content of the slag, which also influenced the optimum mix composition of the SSC mixtures. Mixtures containing slags with high Al2O3 required low amount of alkali activator in order to provide high strength values, while, increasing the activator content reduced the compressive strength. The heats of hydration of all the mixtures were also studied.
