International Workshop on Calcium Sulfoaluminate Cements, Murten, Switzerland

**Registration is now open & discount for RILEM members**

 

SCOPE AND BACKGROUND

Calcium sulfoaluminate cements are receiving increasing interest as an environmentally friendly alternative to Portland cement and as they can be used to formulate mortars and concretes with special properties such as fast setting, high early strength or shrinkage-compensation. Thus in the recent years the number of publications in this field increased rapidly, and new products came on the market.
This workshop aims at exchanging state-of-the-art knowledge regarding production, hydration, properties, durability and application of calcium sulfoaluminate cements. Gathering experts from all around the world will stimulate scientific discussions and can promote national and international collaboration.

TOPICS

– Clinkering
Raw materials, lab and industrial clinkering, mineralizers, kiln operation
– Hydration mechanisms
Kinetics, hydrate assemblages, mineral additions, ternary binders with Portland cements, admixtures, phase stabilities, thermodynamic properties
– Properties
Mechanical properties, volume stability (expansion, shrinkage, creep)
– Durability and sustainability
Sulfate resistance, chloride ingress, carbonation, rebar corrosion, life cycle analysis
– Application
Mortar, concrete, waste encapsulation, standardization
