Abstract


While there is ample information in the literature on the mechanical performance and durability of concrete made with either limestone or granulated blast furnace slag,very little is known about the effect of the combined action of these two additions on concrete properties. The present paper evaluates the early stage properties and mechanical strength of binary and ternary cement concrete containing up to 18% limestone and 20% granulated blast furnace slag. The results show that the use of ternary cements has no substantial effect on concrete setting time, although it does reduce bleeding and enhance mechanical strength with respect to unadditioned Portland and/or binary cement concrete.

Keywords
