Abstract

This paper presents a laboratory study on the deterioration of blended cement combinations of plain Portland cement (PPC) with red brick dust (RBD) and ground basaltic pumice (GBP). One type of clinker, same Blaine values and two different proportions of additive by mass of clinker, were employed. In addition to these blends, Portland cements without additives were prepared as control specimens.
