Influence of Limestone Powder on Performance of the Pre-Mixed Cement Mortar


Article Preview

Effect of the different contents of limestone power (LSP) in manufactured-sand (MS) is investigated in respect of the workability, setting time and compressive strength. The results show that the contents in a certain range can significantly increase the consistency, Specific density of the fresh mortar, and improve comprehensive strength of the hardened mortar due to LSP deduced the porosity and improved the pore structure.
