Utilization of By-Pass Cement Kiln Dust in Alkali-Activated Materials


Article Preview

This paper deals with the mechanical properties and phase study of alkali activated blast furnace slag and by-pass cement kiln dust mixture. The by-pass cement kiln dust (CKD) solves the problem with significant shrinkage of alkali activated materials which is considerably limiting their practical applications. The mechanism of action of CKD in alkali activated matrix has been investigated as well as its optimal dosage in the means of mechanical properties. The reaction products during the hydration process were characterized by X-ray powder diffraction.
