Abstract: Calcium sulfoaluminate cement (CSAC) is a low-energy cement with lower carbon footprint than ordinary portland cement (PC), and it may be a better alternative in certain applications where rapid setting or shrinkage compensating properties are desired. In this study, performance of PC-CSAC blends were investigated by preparing eight sets of mortar and concrete blends with CSAC/PC ratios of 0/100, 5/95, 10/90, 20/80, 30/70, 40/60, 50/50, 100/0. Their alkali-silica reactivity was determined on mortar specimens, and drying shrinkage, compressive strength development, rapid chloride ion permeability, and porosity were investigated on concrete specimens. As a result of the experimental investigation, 100% CSAC showed properties superior to both 100% PC and blended mixtures in most of the determined properties. It was observed that although blending CSAC with PC increases the 1- Day strength of concrete, its later-age performance was adversely affected. It appeared that the blend with 30% CSAC had the lowest performance.
