As an active admixture, super fine steel slag powder can be mixed into concrete to produce high performance concrete. The microstructures between cement paste mixed with steel slag powder and plain cement paste are experimentally studied. The SEM of the microstructures shows that microstructure of cement paste are changed by active mineral admixture, the internal structure of the cement paste are improved. Drying shrinkage of cement mortar with different steel slag kinds and different dosage of admixtures are measured. Experiments results show the effect of steel slag powder on drying shrinkage of cement mortar.
