The use of concrete and mortar containing coal fly ash, blast furnace slag, and other dispersed technogenic materials is one of the major areas of potential resource savings and improving the environmental efficiency and sustainability of construction. Improving Concrete and Mortar using Modified Ash and Slag Cements presents the results of a study of high-tech concrete on composite Portland cement and slag Portland cement. It explains the possibility of significantly improving the properties of cements and concrete with the introduction of superplasticizers and hardening activators.



    • Describes how additives can reduce costs and lead to more environmentally sustainable production
    • Explains the possibility of obtaining high-tech concrete with a high content of ash, slag, and clinker kiln dust
    • Presents the possibility of significant reductions of the most energy-intensive component of cements
    • Examines the calculated dependences for predicting the technical properties of concrete saturated with dispersed technogenic products
    • Explains the methods of calculating the composition of concrete with specified properties of low-clinker cements

Suitable for civil and structural engineers as well as for specialists working in the field of concrete technology, students of civil engineering, and researchers of new construction technologies, this book allows readers to understand new and sustainable ways to improve the properties of concrete and mortar by utilizing additives.
