Course A - High Performance Supplementary Cementitious Materials


In this course, the hydration of cementitious blends with and without Supplementary cementitious materials will be discussed. The focus will be on understanding the hydrates formed in cementitious systems,  the reaction kinetics in plain Portland cement and its relation to properties.
Furthermore, the chemical characteristics of the main types of supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) and their impact on hydration and properties will be explored in more details.
