Binders for Durable and Sustainable Concrete (Modern Concrete Technology Series) by P-C AitCin

Binders for Durable and Sustainable Concrete (Modern Concrete Technology Series) by P-C AitCin
Publisher: Routledge | August 20, 2007 | ISBN: 0415385881 | Pages: 528 | PDF | 12.7 MB

Modern hydraulic binders can be used effectively with Portland cement and supplementary cementitious materials to produce durable concrete. They also provide a means of recycling by-products from other industries and of decreasing the emission of greenhouse gases. The first binders were discovered in ancient times when it was observed that new pozzolans mixed with lime could harden under water; and in the middle of the nineteen century the first artificial hydraulic binder, Portland cement, was discovered. By modifying the four basic oxides in the limestone and clay mix used in the production of Portland cement it is possible to modify significantly the practical properties of the clinker, and consequently the performance of the fresh and hardened concrete in which it is used.
