Effect of Iron Ore Tailings as Fine Aggregate on Pore Structure of Mortars
Effect of iron ore tailings as fine aggregate on pore structure of mortars has been studied in this paper. The purpose is to investigate, as fine aggregate, comparing to natural sand, whether the iron ore tailings can improve the pore structures of mortars or not. Pore structure parameters were measured with the instrument of MIP and calculated with corollary software. The pore structure parameters from four kinds of mortars with different fine aggregates are compared with each other. This paper will provide more data about the use of this artificial aggregate, which may increase the feasibility of the use of this by-product in the mortar or cement concrete industry.
