POZZOLANIC ACTIVITY OF CALCINED MOLER CLAY

In order to investigate the possibility of using an industrial by-product of calcined Moler from the production of Moler bricks as a pozzolan in cement and concrete, a number of tests were carried out to establish the pozzolanic properties. The experiments performed followed the tests of chemical and physical properties of a pozzolan as prescribed by ASTM C 618, investigating the chemical composition, water soluble alkalies, particle size distribution, pozzolanic activity and potential prevention of alkali-silica expansions. The experiments have shown that the chemical and physical properties of finely granulated calcined Moler according to ASTM C 618 is an excellent pozzolan for the use in concrete.(A)
