The first industrial process for the production of a cement based on calcium aluminates was patented in 1908 and since then these cements have become hugely important for a wide range of applications. This volume presents the proceedings of the international conference held in Avignon, France, in May 2014, close to the site of the invention.
The papers come from Europe, North America, the Far East, the Middle East and South Africa and demonstrate a strong continuing interest, and real progression, in the knowledge and understanding of this important class of cement, demonstrating that CAs are well placed to continue extending their field of applications for, hopefully, the next hundred years.
New developments and applications covered in the 60 papers include offshore applications, encapsulation, wastewater treatment, self-levelling flooring, refractory applications and biogenics. Various studies also demonstrate the increasing importance of CAs in formulations, with much interest in blended systems, and especially the ternary system with calcium sulfate and Portland cement. In addition, strong contributions relate to the phase systems, CA types, hydration, mechanical properties and durability.
