In particular, these topics include various aspects of the production and use of clinker-efficient cements and of the use of recycled aggregates in the form of crushed sand in cement. The articles on the performance and composition of air-entrained concretes and high-performance concretes, on the properties of hardened cement pastes and their effects in the case of fire, and on the avoiding of harmful alkali-silica reactions also address issues relating to the future of concrete construction as a construction method.
