Mercury intrusion porosimetry (MIP) tests were performed on 54 hardened cement paste (CP) (w/c = 0.33) and cemented paste backfill (CPB) (w/c = 7) samples. Three binders (PC type 10, PC T10-fly ash, PC T10-blast furnace slag) and three waters containing different sulphate proportions ( 0, 4613, 7549 ppm) were used in the specimen preparation process. Cement paste study showed microstructural differences between binders and to identify the main influence factors of the microstructural evolution… Expand
EVOLUTION OF CEMENTED PASTE BACKFILL SATURATED HYDRAULIC CONDUCTIVITY AT EARLY CURING TIME
One interesting management approach to reduce environmental impacts related to sulphide mine tailings storage consists in using them as a component of cemented paste backfill (CPB). CPB consists of aExpand
Effects of Superplasticizer on the Hydration, Consistency, and Strength Development of Cemented Paste Backfill
The strength and consistency of cemented paste backfill (CPB) are of key concerns in the stope stability and cost control for underground mines. It is common practice to use additives, such asExpand
