Development of strength and heat of hydration of young concrete at low temperature - influence of granulated blast furnace slag, silica and limestone

by Lundgren, Monica

Abstract (Summary)
The work presented in this licentiate thesis was carried out within the project task Use of industrial by-products and filler in concrete, part Early-age strength development at low temperatures in concrete with mineral additions/fillers. To improve the understanding and to increase the data available, the study investigated the development of compressive strength and heat of hydration while curing at 5°C compared with curing at 20°C. Heat and strength development were investigated for different types of mineral additions and filler. The result was used to calculate the early-age k-value of the additions.
