Effect of Steel Slag Powder on the Durability of High Performance Concrete


Article Preview

dvanced mineral admixtures can lead to economical high performance concrete with enhanced durability and reduced cement content. When super fine steel slag powder is mixed into concrete as active admixture, resistance to abrasion and resistance to chloride penetration are improved as well as workability and mechanical properties of the concrete. Resistance to abrasion of steel slag concrete is measured and resistance to chloride penetration is also determined by the method of NEL and ASTM C1202 in this paper. Result shows that compound mineral admixtures as partial replacement for Portland cement in mortar enhance abrasion resistance. Mixing mineral admixture is an effective means for controlling the chloride permeability. Concrete specimens prepared with compound mineral admixture with steel slag powder and blast furnace slag powder has very low permeability.
