Interactions between siliceous fly ash or calcined clay as cement main constituent and superplasticizers based on polycarboxylate ether as well as their influences on rheological properties of fresh cement paste and fresh concrete
It was determined how the rheological properties and the consistency of fresh concrete can be improved by the adjustment of the type and proportion of fly ash or calcined clay in the cement to the clinker as well as the type and dosage of the superplasticizer.
Suitability of various inorganic substances for use as a minor constituents in cements according to EN 197-1
Interactions between superplasticizers and cements with calcined clay in dependence of the temperature
Development of an analysis concept for the quantification of cement, its main constituents as well as additives in hardened concrete
Interactions between cements with several main constituents and methyl cellulose and their performance in dry mortar
Sulfate resistance testing of cement
Optimisation of cements with natural calcined clays as main constituent and durability of concretes made of these cements
The new research project focussed on the optimisation of pozzolanic cements concerning the processing and composition of their constituents as well as the durability of concretes made of these cements.
