Industrial By-Products as Possible Alternatives to GGBS and PFA in the Precast Concrete Market

This paper presents data to show that several industrial by-products (ICP)which are currently being landfilled, can be used, after a minimum of pretreatment and blending, to replace up to 50% of Portland cement in production of precast concrete. The study carried out tests that included chemical analyses for composition using ICP and pozzolanicity measurements, mineralogical analysis by X-ray diffraction, and physical analyses generating particle size distribution and scanning electron microscopy images, along with measurements of compressive strength.
