Heat of hydration, water sorption and microstructural characteristics of paste and mortar mixtures produced with powder waste glass

Abstract

This paper investigates the effects of powder waste glass (PWG) at 10%, 15%, and 20 wt.% replacement of cement on the flow characteristic, setting time, compressive strength, water sorption, rate of the heat of hydration, cumulative heat of hydration; alkali-silica reaction (ASR), and microstructure characteristics of the resulting paste and mortar mixtures. A total of eight cementitious mixtures including two control mixtures have been investigated in this experimental program to evaluate the effect of PWG on the fresh and hardened state characteristics of paste and mortar mixtures. Test results show that the incorporation of PWG in the cementitious mixtures results in significant enhancement of their microstructure, increase in compressive strength, improvement in moisture barrier characteristics, and considerable reduction in the rate of the heat of hydration and cumulative heat of hydration. Up to 20 wt.% replacement of cement with fine PWG is seen to be innocuous from the standpoint of ASR. Furthermore, the use of PWG in paste results in delaying the initial and final setting times and increases the flow characteristic of the mortar mixture.
