Durability 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 wide application, all parties involved have to 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 the application of these cements in the construction industry.

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.

Recycled clay brick containing materials as a raw material in resource efficient cements and durable concretes

The topic of the research project is the utilisation of brick-containing materials from the recycling of mineral construction waste. It is being investigated whether and how resource-efficient cements can be produced with processed brick-containing construction waste and reduced clinker content, thus reducing process-related CO₂ emissions.

LeptoCalc

The use of fines from concrete recycling plants as cement constituents is currently insufficiently investigated and requires further research. The basic prerequisite for the utilisation of the fines will be to be able to characterise the material properties as quickly and comprehensively as possible and to ensure a constant material flow. An essential part of the research project is therefore the development of a rapid test method with which the properties of these fines can be estimated, among other things, by measuring the residual reactivity.

Environmentally friendly railway sleepers with calcium sulfoaluminate cements

The research project will investigate whether the technical requirements for railway sleepers with CSA cements can be realised. Also, some basic links to standards (e.g. modulus of elasticity, creep and shrinkage in accordance with EC2) must be checked and ensured.
