Limestone addition effects on concrete porosity ...

2016-9-1  Although the Standards allow up to 35% limestone addition in the cement for making concrete, global data analysed in this study suggest that PLC with limestone content greater than 15–25% may adversely affect the porosity of concrete, and thereby its overall performance in structures and in terms of strength the maximum amount of limestone that can be considered a safe use is more likely to be

The assessment of porosity and pore size distribution

2009-5-1  The conclusion of the study was that limestone addition affects the pore structure of the cement paste by increasing linearly the size of capillary pores from 20 nm to 40 nm when the maximum amount (35%) of limestone that is allowed by EN 197-1 is used. On the other hand the threshold diameter decreases exponentially and it is evident that limestone hardened cement pastes have many pores of

2014-8-1  As the limestone content of the cement increased, the shift in the optimum level of SCM in terms of the compressive strength and porosity (from about 3% to 8% for the mixes containing 15% slag or 10% metakaolin in this study) is attributed to the availability of more alumina from the SCM, that allowed more limestone to participate in the hydration reactions, forming additional carboaluminate

2000-11-1  This is due to higher chemically combined water content, lower free lime content, i.e. more hydration products. With the increase in limestone content, the total porosity decreases. It can be concluded that limestone fills the pores between the cement particles. The porosity decreases as limestone ratio increases.

2009-11-3  for a base cement paste with no limestone filler, a final total capillary porosity of zero can be achieved, thus, there will be insufficient space for complete hydration of the cement. As the w/cm goes even lower, a greater fraction of the base cement in the system without limestone would remain unhydrated, providing the potential opportunity
