HIGH-PRESSURE STEAM CURING OF HIGH-SLAG CEMENT I. COMPOSITION OF THE HYDRATED CEMENT

The phases formed in a high-slag cement on curing in saturated steam at 180 lbf/in2 have been investigated. X-ray diffraction revealed that in the presence of the suitable addition of fine quartz, 11-a tobermorite was the predominant phase formed in an autoclaving period of 5h at maximum pressure; the phases identified in neat slag cement were 11-a tobermorite and hillebrandite. The same phases were identified in the samples autoclaved for 6h, in addition to minor amount of xonotlite. Chemical analysis of the same hydrated samples has shown that the molar cao/sio2 ratio was 1.27 for the cement-quartz and 1.49 for the neat cement for the 5-h autoclaving period, and 1.35 and 1.57, respectively, for the 6-h period. /AUTHOR/
