Results (German): Granulometry of cement main constituents – Influence on the durability of concrete made with cements containing limestone
The aim was to determine systematically the granulometric influences of the main constituents Portland cement clinker (K), limestone (LL), blastfurnace slag (S) and fly ash (V) as well as the substance-specific impacts of the particle size distributions on cement, mortar and concrete properties.
Fresh concrete properties and hardening behaviour of concretes with clinker-efficient cements CEM II/C and CEM VI
EN 197-5 defined the clinker-efficient cements CEM II/C and CEM VI. Technical approvals for the application of CEM II/C cements have been issued. For a widespread application, it is important that all parties involved develop confidence in the new products. With new findings on fresh concrete properties, hardening behaviour and durability two research projects of the VDZ Concrete Technology Department will provide an important basis for application of these cements in concrete for the construction industry.

With its "Education and Training Programme 2021/22" VDZ supports the efforts of the industry to be successful in the long term through consistent qualification of the workforce. VDZ ensures efficient and practical learning by providing a wide range of vocational training courses and (online) seminars covering technical basics, special technical knowledge and education courses for managers.
Durability of concrete according to the performance principle - classification of material resistance, production control (PC), conformity criteria and control (CC)
In this project, the systematic classification of the carbonation and chloride penetration resistance of concretes will be investigated. Based on these results, recommendations for action will be derived for production and conformity control within the framework of a performance-based durability concept.
