State-ofthe-Art Report on Use of Limestone in Cements at Levels of up to

  title={State-ofthe-Art Report on Use of Limestone in Cements at Levels of up to},
  author={A. Thomas and W. Jason Weiss},
This document is to serve as background technical information for engineers, specifiers, and other concrete technologists on use of limestone in hydraulic cements in amounts up to 15% (focusing on amounts between 5% and 15%). The document also provides supporting data for standardization of limestone blended cements in ASTM C595 and AASHTO M240. Environmental benefits are noted as well as a history of use of cements with limestone. The chemical and physical effects of limestone on fresh and…

Long-term hydration behavior and pore structure development of cement–limestone binary system

This study concerns the long-term hydration behavior and pore structure of cement paste incorporated with limestone powder. The cement paste specimens are investigated by isothermal calorimetry,




Data from published literature and laboratory tests regarding limestone additions to portland cement are reviewed. Emphasis is placed on additions of 5% or less. The effects of interground and

Use of Low-CO2 Portland Limestone Cement for Pavement Construction in Canada

In response to growing pressures to reduce the clinker content in cement and hence the CO2 emissions associated with its production, the Canadian Standards Association (CSA A3001-08) introduced a new

Evaluation of Portland limestone cements for use in concrete construction

The paper describes a study carried out to examine the performance of concrete produced using combinations of Portland cement (PC) and limestone (LS), covering compositions for Portland limestone

The short term performance aspects of portland limestone cements are compared with those of portland slag, fly ash and pozzolanic cements. The early activity of the portland limestone cements, as

A Study on the Hydration of Portland Limestone Cement by Means of TG

Subject of this paper is to investigate the hydration process of Portland limestone cement containing 10-35% limestone. Cements, produced by co-grinding of clinker, limestone and gypsum, were

Equivalent Performance with Half the Clinker Content using PLC and SCM

In response to growing pressures to reduce the clinker content in cement, the Canadian Standards Association (CSA A3001-08) introduced a new classification of cement in 2008, this being Portland

Decreasing the Clinker Component in Cementing Materials: Performance of Portland-Limestone Cements in Concrete in combination with Supplementary Cementing Materials

Portland-limestone cements have been used in Europe for decades and now meet EN 197 CEMIIA-L (6-20% limestone) or CEM IIB-L (1-35% limestone). In Canada, Portland-limestone cements (PLC) with up to
