The main objective of this investigation is to replace calcined marl (0, 10, 20%) and condensed silica fume (SF, 0, 7, 10%) partially for ordinary Portland cement (OPC). Marl, a calcium-based supplementary cementitious material (SCM) calcines at a considerably lower temperature (750 °C) than OPC (up to 1480 °C). The calcined marl contributes in prolonged pozzolanic reactions and represents characteristics of latent cement chemistry. To approach the major conclusions, 27 mixes were designed…
