Factors Influencing the Strength of Alkali-Activated Slag Cement
In this paper, water glass was chosen as activator to prepare Alkali-activated slag(AAS) cement. Effects of modulus and dosage of water glass, and admixture (fly ash, slag and silica fume) on the strength of AAS cement was investigated. It was found that the modulus of water glass had great effect on the strength of AAS cement when the mixing amount of water glass was less than 12%. With the incorporation of fly ash or slag, the strength of AAS cement decreased, however the incorporation of silica fume could promote the flexural and compressive strength of AAS cement slightly.
