Abstract

Some of the research into concrete materials and design of concrete structures being carried out at the University of Bath, are discussed. One of the researches at Bath is investigating the use of calcium sulfoaluminate cements (CSAC) in combination with additions to produce performance similar to that of UK composite cements but with lower embodied CO , through optimization of physical and chemical processes. One of the researches investigates whether supersulfated cements (SSC) meeting BS EN 15743 can be achieved using UK-sourced materials and investigating the resulting performance of the concretes produced. A further area of research, being carried out in close collaboration with the BRE, is investigating the use of alkali-activated concretes, the binder component of which constitutes a blend of fly ash and GGBS activated by an alkali-silicate solution. These ongoing research into concrete materials and structures are delivering innovative, practicable and sustainable solutions to the issues facing the cement and concrete sectors. 2
