Aims of the project:

  1. Estimation of physical and chemical properties of two cement kinds of CEM V/(A and B) according to EN 197-1;
  2. Comparison of pozzolanic activity of blast-furnace slag, natural zeolite and fly ash used as the cement additions;
  3. Proposals of optimal concrete mixture composition and estimation of basic rheological properties of fresh concretes;
  4. Determination of the important civil engineering properties of the proposed concrete – Technological Rule for the Manufacture of Concrete with the Cement of CEM V Kinds and Basic Recommendations for the Application;
  5. Microstructure study of the formed hydrate phase and developed pore structure including permeability on the cement pastes with the same composition than those occurring in the concretes;
  6. Demonstration of the results by field experiment and implementation of the gained experience along practise in Austria and Slovakia.
Cements employed: Publicity and dissemination of the results:
There were several workshops on the subject held alternately in Vienna and Bratislava. A detailed compilation of achieved goals is available in a dual language (Slovak and German) monograph ‘ENVIZEO – Applications of ecocements CEM V (A,B) kind according to EN 197-1 in structural concrete‘.
