Performance-based concept for sufficient ASR resistance of concrete
The thesis developed a "Performance-based concept for sufficient ASR resistance of concrete" to more effectively prevent damage to concrete structures due to alkali-silica reaction (ASR). This is based on a new method for testing and evaluating the effective alkali content, especially of clinker-efficient cements with several main constitutens, and on the results of the long-term behaviour of concrete cubes in outdoor exposure site tests.
Stability of calcined clays during storage
Investigations into the fire-induced explosive spalling of ecologically optimised concretes as well as determination of the thermo-mechanical and thermo-physical properties of these concretes
The purpose of the research project is to gain the first systematic scientific findings on spalling behaviour in the event of fire and on thermo-mechanical and thermo-physical properties for concretes with the new clinker-efficient cement types and with recycled aggregates.
Calcined Clays from mineral secondary raw materials
The aim of the research project is to investigate the suitability of previously largely unused mineral secondary raw materials from the stone and earth industry as a resource-conserving and climate-friendly main cement constituent. The use of cal-cined clays from secondary raw materials instead of conventional main cement constituents or high-quality primary clays can make an important contribution to the production of climate-friendly and resource-efficient cements.
EMSARZEM - Assessment of the use of waste incineration slag as raw material for application in the cement industry
With us, you can expand your knowledge around the production of cement and lime, as well as in the area of concrete technology. As a competent partner, we have been offering our customers individual qualification solutions since 2010. In addition to German-language online courses, we also offer English- and Russian-language courses and other services.
Grinding Technology in Cement Production
Raw material preparation and cement grinding are the first and the last major process steps during cement production. The energy demand of these two processes amounts to up to 70 % of the electrical energy used in a cement plant. This training will enable participants to obtain a better understanding of the comminution processes as well as the equipment used for material grinding to ensure high levels of availability. This altogether will allow an optimisation of production rates and reducing energy consumption.
Cements of the Future
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.
VDZ Congress 2024
The 9th International VDZ Congress will take place in Düsseldorf on 6 – 8 November 2024. The VDZ Congress is the international scientific forum for the cement industry and its suppliers. Delegates from all over the world will come together to discuss the latest developments and challenges in the context of transformation of the cement industry on its way towards climate neutrality.
