Effect of Dry Mix Alkali Activated Slag Binder Composite Properties Cured in Ambient Condition

by Rajesh K.N. Sudam P.A. Naidu G.D.R. Raju P.M. Sowjanya P.N. Rajani M.

Solid Waste Management

A dry mix (solution-free) alkali-activated slag (a primary cementitious material) and/or fly ash based binder composition is developed that can be cast in-site and consequently cured at ambient temperature. Mortar specimens were cast by mixing slag and or fly ash, river sand, powder form alkaline...
