Abstract

A study of type II cements at the Iowa State Highway Commission concluded that the amount of tricalcium aluminate in the cement appears to have an inverse effect on concrete durability. This conclusion agrees with the results of the Kansas Highway Department's study to determine the combination of cement and aggregate which would produce the best possible durability factor. This study is a result of the questions raised following the completion of the project at the Iowa State Highway Commission. This project is being conducted on a larger scale so. that more definite conclusions can be drawn. The purpose of this project is to determine if the amount of tricalcium aluminate in type II cements has an inverse effect on the durability of concrete.
