Accelerated carbonation and performance of concrete made with steel slag as binding materials and aggregates
Steel slag has been used as supplementary cementitious materials or aggregates in concrete. However, the substitution levels of steel slag for Portland cement or natural aggregates were limited dueExpand
Effects of MgO-based expansive additive on compensating the shrinkage of cement paste under non-wet curing conditions
Abstract Expansive additives are widely used to compensate the drying shrinkage of cement-based materials to avoid cracking. However, the expansion of conventional ettringite-bearing expansiveExpand
The transition of fly ash-based geopolymer gels into ordered structures and the effect on the compressive strength
This paper reports the investigation of microstructural properties associated with the transition of amorphous gels into more ordered structures in fly ash-based geopolymers. Three typical geopolymerExpand
The development of coral concretes and their upgrading technologies: A critical review
Abstract The utilization of locally available raw materials is extremely necessary for the offshore island construction in ocean. Coral can be used as aggregate but is usually light and porous,Expand
The Durability of Alkali-Activated Materials in Comparison with Ordinary Portland Cements and Concretes: A Review
Abstract China is the largest producer and user of ordinary Portland cement (OPC), and the rapid growth of infrastructure development demands more sustainable building materials for concreteExpand
Satellite-like CdS nanoparticles anchoring onto porous NiO nanoplates for enhanced visible-light photocatalytic properties
Abstract Novel CdS/NiO nanocomposites assembled by satellite-like CdS nanoparticles anchoring onto porous NiO nanoplates have been fabricated by a step synthesis process, which involves a chemicalExpand
Properties of magnesium potassium phosphate cement pastes exposed to water curing: A comparison study on the influences of fly ash and metakaolin
Abstract Under moist condition the magnesium phosphate cement (MPC) exhibits poor water resistance. In this study, the effects of metakaolin (MK) and fly ash (FA) on the properties of magnesiumExpand
Coral aggregate concrete: Numerical description of physical, chemical and morphological properties of coral aggregate
Abstract With the increasing development of oceanic resources, coral aggregate concrete has wide potentials in the construction of islands and reefs, as well as the flood embankment, road and airportExpand
Application of Air-cooled Blast Furnace Slag Aggregates as Replacement of Natural Aggregates in Cement-based Materials: A Study on Water Absorption Property
The influence of air-cooled blast furnace slag aggregates as replacement of natural aggregates on the water absorption of concrete and mortar was studied, and the mechanism was analyzed. TheExpand
