Research on the Volume Stability of Ternary Cementitious Systems Incorporating Fly Ash and Slag Powder
The paper investigates the volume shrinkage of different cementitious materials. The results indicates the type and fineness of cement have significant effect on the volume stability of hardened paste, namely, the concrete with higher fineness cement has worse volume stability. The addition of mineral admixtures makes the volume stability of cementitious materials become complex. The mineral admixtures of high quality can reduce the shrinkage of hardened paste, and the duality system of cement incorporating fly ash have better volume stability than the ternary system of cement incorporating fly ash and slag powder.
