TESTS OF CONCRETE CONATINING PORTLAND BLAST-FURNACE SLAG CEMENT

COMPARISONS ARE GIVEN BETWEEN THE STRENGTH, DURABILITY, AND SHRINKAGE OF CONCRETE SPECIMENS PREPARED WITH TYPE I PORTLAND CEMENTS AND TYPE IS PORTLAND BLAST-FURNACE SLAG CEMENTS FROM THE SAME CEMENT PLANTS. COMPRESSIVE AND FLEXURAL STRENGTH DATA TO AN AGE OF 90 DAYS ARE AVAILABLE FOR CONCRETE CONTAINING 5 1/2 TO 7 1/2 GAL. OF WATER PER BAG. FREEZING AND THAWING TESTS (ATSM METHOD C 292) FOR 50 TO 90 CYCLES, AND DETERMINATIONS OF SHRINKAGE DUE TO DRYING IN AIR FOR 115 OR MORE DAYS, HAVE BEEN MADE ON CONCRETE CONTAINING 5 1/2 OR 6 1/2 GAL. OF WATER PER BAG. THE RESULTS OF THE STRENGTH TESTS INDICATE THAT PORTLAND BLAST-FURNCCE SLAG CEMENT DEVELOPS STRENGTH MORE SLOWLY THAN PORTLAND CEMENT, BUT AT AN AGE OF 90 DAYS WILL FURNISH HIGHER STRENGTH CONCRETE. NO MARKED DIFFERENCE HAS BEEN FOUND IN THE SHRINKAGE OF CONCRETES PREPARED WITH THE TWO KINDS OF CEMENT. /AUTHOR/
