Merits and Challenges of Increasing Limestone Addition in Cement Used in Concrete Pavement Construction

Conference-paper-ascp, Ascp-conference-presentation

Portland cement has undergone much change in recent decades to cater for rapid construction cycles, longer design life and environmental pressure. Increased fineness, the advent of Portland blended cements incorporating one or more supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs), and reduced clinker content via mineral addition have been the key technological solutions...

Geopolymer and High Volume Fly Ash Concrete for Pavements
