Cement and Its Impact on Concrete Performance
What’s your concrete performance issue? Hot- or cold-weather concerns? Workability? Setting time? Strength?
They can all be influenced by cement characteristics. The type of cement can also affect durability and how susceptible the concrete will be to sulfate attack and alkali-silica reaction.
Designed for engineers and other construction professionals involved in concrete construction, this six-part series on concrete and cement technology takes you through cement’s role in sustainability, cement types and applications, and how cement affects the performance of the final product.
Or take the modules individually:
Module 1 - Cement’s Role in Sustainability
Module 2- Cement Manufacturing
Module 3- Types and Applications of Cement
Module 4- Cement Characteristics
Module 5- Impact of Cement on Concrete Properties
Module 6- Abnormal Reactions and Compatibility of Materials with Cement
