Limestone addition effects on concrete porosity

Sep 01, 2016 As the cement paste in concrete is the only chemically active component, and it also contains the majority of the pores,it is reasonable first to study the influence of limestone on the porosity of cement paste before dealing with the results obtained with mortar and concrete mixes.

A study on hydration, compressive strength, and porosity

Aug 01, 2014 The hydration, compressive strength, and porosity of a high-C 3 A cement clinker interground to make five types of cements with different limestone contents and their combinations with various levels of s were examined. The cements used had limestone contents of 0%, 2.4%, 10.6%, 12.7%, and 21.8%, labeled Type I, GU, PLC11, PLC13 and PLC22, respectively.

Sep 01, 2003 The effect of limestone addition on the air permeability, water permeability, sorptivity, and porosity of limestone cement concrete has been investigated. Six Portland limestone cements (PLCs) with different limestone content (10–35% w/w) were produced by intergrinding clinker, gypsum, and limestone.

Porosity and Bulk Density of Sedimentary Rocks

Average values for the porosity of sedimentary rocks have been given by Barrell (1914) as: shale, 8.2 percent; sandstone, 14.8 per­ cent; limestone, 5.3 percent; and all sedimentary rocks, 8.5 percent. Additional data since the publication of Barrell's summary indicate that the average value of 8.2 percent for the porosity of shale may be low.

This porosity may be destroyed by calcite or by optically continuous dolomite cement. Limestone deposited originally as lime muds with abundant floating sand-size particles appears to be commonly preferred by the replacing dolomite euhedra. The patchy growth of either scattered dolomite euhedra or masses of interlocking dolomite anhedra
