Strength Development Characteristic of Cementless Mortar for Repair of Concrete
Repair materials for concrete structures are often required to exhibit high bond strength at a concrete substrate, and it typically consists of ordinary Portland cement (OPC) incorporating expensive admixtures at a low water-to-binder ratio. Meanwhile, cementless mortar employs alkali-activation of cementless and pozzolanic precursors such as ground granulated blast-furnace slag (GGBFS) and fly ash (FA). The final product develops strength relatively faster than OPC, and its strength can be flexibly talyored by controlling the type and dosage of the activator. The present study investigates the strength development characteristic of cementles mortar for use in repair of concrete structures. Independent variables include mix proportions and curing conditions, which were chosen to optimize the performance of the cementless mortar.
