Studies of the efficiency of granulated blast furnace slag and limestone filler in mortars - long term strength and cloride penetration

Research output: ThesisLicentiate Thesis


This report is the first part of the project Use of industrial by-products and filler in concrete - long term properties/durability. The aim is to improve the knowledge of long term properties/durability of cement and concrete produced using industrial by-products/fillers in order to promote an efficient, safe, reliable and increased use of such types of materials. The results presented in the report concentrate mainly on determination of material properties of mineral additions/fillers. The next step of the project will be to study the mechanisms governing the influence of mineral additions/fillers on the long-term properties/durability.
