    • Relevant relationship between phase composition and technical properties.
    • High importance of emplacement, hydration and hardening leading to different mineral structures.
    • New cement types focussing on CO2-reduction.

    Aims and Scope

    Aside from water the materials which are used by mankind in highest quantities are cementitious materials and concrete. This book shows how the quality of the technical product depends on mineral phases and their reactions during the hydration and strengthening process. Additives and admixtures influence the course of hydration and the properties. Options of reducing the CO2-production in cementitious materials are presented and numerous examples of unhydrous and hydrous phases and their formation conditions are discussed.
    This editorial work consists of four parts including cement composition and hydration, Special cement and binder mineral phases, Cementitious and binder materials, and Measurement and properties. Every part contains different contributions and covers a broad range within the area.
