Copuroglu, O. Heinemann, H.A. Publication year 2012 Abstract Before the general acceptance of Portland cement as the main binder for concrete in the late 19th century, other, locally available binders were occasionally used. In the case of the Netherlands, which did not produce Portland cement, traditional lime-based binders were not uncommon. With a strong tradition of trass production, trass-lime binders were used for hydraulic concrete structures as well. For Dutch military works such binders were commonly used for plain concrete structures in the middle and late 19th century, often in combination with crushed bricks as coarse aggregate. In this paper, the possibilities of the application of optical microscopy to characterise such concretes is discussed Subject Building Engineering & Civil EngineeringBM - Building MaterialsTS - Technical SciencesBuildings and InfrastructureMaterialsBuilt Environment To reference this document use: http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:d891e7c1-75ae-4a9a-84b0-91d9b9e2bfda TNO identifier 452888 ISBN 9781622765164 Source 34th International Conference on Cement Microscopy 2012, 1 April 2012 through 4 April 2012, Halle, Saxony-Anhalt, 169-182 Document type article Files To receive the publication files, please send an e-mail request to TNO Library.
