Effects of limestone fillers on surface free energy and electrical conductivity of the interstitial solution of cement mixes

L. Courard , F. Michel , Sylwia Perkowicz , Andrzej Garbacz


Most of concrete formulations actually contain mineral additives that are used as an inert filler or supplementary cementitious material (as type II addition). These materials are generally used in order to increase concrete performances both in its fresh and hardened states. The mineral additives usually improve the consistency and workability of fresh concrete and reduce the water demand for a required concrete slump because of an additional volume of fines. The way of action depends on the physical and chemical characteristics of fillers. The study of surface free energies and electric conductivities of interstitial solutions of cement mixes modified by blast furnace slags and limestone fillers contributes to a better knowledge of hardening and interaction process.
