Abstract: Ternary blends of cement, limestone and calcined clay are promising answers to the increasing demand for construction materials in many parts of the world. Their main advantages are the wide availability of raw materials, the ease of processing and the mechanical strength close to plain cement. These properties make them excellent candidates for precast structures or bricks, but in order to use such binders in any kind of work, knowledge of long-term properties is required. Among them are dimensional stability, including shrinkage and creep. This study compares and analyses creep and shrinkage behaviour in autogenous conditions for a variety of limestone and calcined clay mature cement paste. The impact of these supplementary materials on delayed strains is assessed, in comparison to plain cement samples.
