AN ATTEMPT TO ASSESS BENEFICIAL AND DETRIMENTAL EFFECTS OF ALUMINATE IN THE CEMENT ON CONCRETE PERFORMANCE - PART 1

This paper is a slightly modified version of that presented at the Cembureau seminar on reactions of aluminates during the setting of cement, on 13-14 April 1977 at the Eindhoven University of Technology, Netherlands. Since the cement producer is often confronted with the question of whether the c3a content is adequate or not, an attempt has been made to identify the benefits and drawbacks of altering the c3a level of the cement from the point of view of the user as well as that of the producer. Some methodological difficulties (quantitative determination of the c3a and its polymorphism, comparableness of test conditions) may encroach upon the validity of the findings. /TRRL/
