A Study on the Engineering Properties of Concrete Using Blast-furnace Slag Powder ;;;;;
There are many methods to improve the performance of concrete. Especially, granuated blast furnace slag. by-products used in concrete as the replacement material of cement, could contribute to improve the fluidity, resistance of chemical attack and strength of concrete. Also, it could contribute to decrease the rate of generating hydration heat, in addition to cost-down of concrete and prevention of enviromental pollution. Therefore, in order to establish the systemical application of granuated blast furnace slag in normal concrete, the engineering properties of concrete, such as fluidity, strength, setting and hydration properties etc.. was evaluated. In this study, replacement ratio of granuated blast furnace slag was 0, 30, 50, 70(%), and target slump was 8, 12, 15, 18(cm). Results from the experiment, granuated blast furnace slag showed the outstanding effects of improving the engineering properties of concrete. From now on, positive application of granuated blast furnace slag is expected in the point of improving the performance and cost-down of concrete.
