Forschungsergebnisse: Dauerhaftigkeit von Beton nach dem Performance-Prinzip - Zustandserfassung (Projekt 1: Objektsammlung)

Available in German

Ziel des IGF-Projekts war die Erfassung der Zuverlässigkeit eines repräsentativen Bauwerksbestandes, geplant und erbaut auf Grundlage der DIN 1045:2001. Hierfür sollte ein repräsentativer Bauwerksbestand ausgewählt werden, der Einwirkungen der Expositionsklassen Karbonatisierung (XC4), Chlorideinwirkung (XD3) und Frosteinwirkung (XF3 und XF4) ausgesetzt ist.

Research projects


Completed

Influence of the reduction of melting point and viscosity of the clinker melt by ashes of alternative fuels on sintering reactions and coating formation

A database was compiled which cement manufacturers can use to influence and further optimise the formation of the melt phase by selecting suitable alternative fuels and their proportion.

Crash Course on Cement Production and Use

Our training schemes introduce career starters to cement technology, taking their different engineering or scientific backgrounds into account. This course provides a one-week in-depth training session which covers all relevant aspects of the cement manufacturing process including chemistry, mineralogy and environmental aspects. Quality control and cement performance in mortar/concrete will also be addressed.

Seminars

Firing Alternative Fuels 2025

This course covers all the relevant aspects concerning the use of alternative fuels in cement plants. Starting with the main political drivers such as the circular economy and the European waste fuel strategy, the training will give a detailed view of the current state-of-the-art-situation with regard to the use of alternative fuels in the EU. In this context, pre-treatment and suitable quality control of alternative fuels will be also explained and presented. A main focus will be given to the drivers and barriers of the use of alternative fuels within the burning process. Key issues will be explained and discussed with the participants. Finally, technical feasibilities, case studies and optimisation potential will be part of the training course.

Cements of the Future 2025

With the decarbonisation of cement production and the expected reduction in blastfurnace slag and fly ash quantities, unburned limestone, calcined clays, and recycled fines will gain in importance as cement main constituents. The focus will be on new, clinker-effcient cement types such as CEM II/C and CEM VI cements, whose performance allows a wide range of applications in practice. This online seminar provides an overview of the current state of development and standardisation of new cements. The possibilities and limits for practical implementation will be presented.
