Performance of Portland Limestone Cement Concrete Pavements

A great deal of laboratory testing and construction trials have gone into determining whether portland limestone cement (PLC) can achieve equivalent performance in the field. Equivalent performance requires the PLC mixture to have the same constructibility, strength, and durability as portland cement (PC). This article describes three pavement trials where PLC concrete mixtures were compared with PC concrete mixtures, focusing on the condition of the pavements after three to four years in aggressive climates. Results found that PLC can be used as a substitute for PC with no significant impact when PLC is manufactured to have the equivalent strength of PC.
