Abstract

The process of cement manufacturing produces a huge amount of carbon dioxide (CO2). The utilization of alternative waste materials from various industrial processes as a partial substitution to cement is encouraged due to environmental and specific technical requirements. This strategy will have the potential to reduce cost of cement, conserve energy, and reduce waste volumes. Therefore, the aim of this research is to investigate effect of the replacement of cement with modified fly ash (MFA) and ground granulated blast furnace slag (GGBS) to reach 80% total replacement on mechanical and durability performance of cement mortar. Normal consistency, the initial and final setting times, compressive strength and electrical resistivity of all the ternary mixtures were determined and compared with the control binder. Compressive strength and electrical resistivity were tested at various curing ages of 3, 7, 14, and 28 days. Test results revealed that the normal consistency of the ternary mixtures increased with increasing the GGBS and MFA content, while the initial and final setting time decreased compared to that of control mixture. The results also showed that the compressive strength of all the ternary blends mortars were lower at early and later ages in comparison with control mortar. The reductions in the compressive strengths of the ternary mixtures T40, T60 and T80 compared to the control mixture were approximately 16%, 29% and 37%, respectively at 28 days. The surface electrical resistivity of ternary blends mixtures was higher than the control mixture at all curing ages. The use of GGBS and MFA in the production of cement mortar and concrete can significantly help in reducing the CO2 emissions of the cement industry and reduce the overall cost of cement.
