The temperature rise in mass concrete usually leads to premature distresses and early-age cracking. This paper correlates the time-temperature profiles to the mechanical properties and durability of high-performance mass concrete (HPMC). Five types of cement having different specific surface areas (SSA) and granulated blast furnace slag (GBFS) repl...

Ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) mixtures are typically proportioned using high binder content and low water-to-binder ratio (w/b). Yet, in most cases, such recipes denote the presence of unhydrated cement and other pozzolanic materials, thus playing the role of costly fillers in the matrix. Two UHPC categories proportioned with two cement ty...

A fenntarthatóság szempontjából rendkívül fontos a károsanyag kibocsájtás csökkentése, a meglévő anyagok hosszú időn át tartó használata és az élettartamuk végén az újrahasznosításuk. Egyre jelentősebb a törekvés, hogy a betonok anyagában növeljük a hulladékok és ipari melléktermékek mennyiségét, és csökkentsük a cementtartalmat és a bányászott vag...
