Abstract: Ordinary Portland cement (OPC) is the most commonly used construction material, however, it produces a lot of CO2 during its manufacturing process [1,2]. Calcium sulfoaluminate (CSA) cement has been attracted attention due to its reduced CO2 footprint during the production, in comparison with that of OPC [2,3]. The production, hydration process, characteristics, and physicochemical properties of CSA cement have been widely investigated, while their durability aspects has still to be revealed. In this regard, this paper provides an overview on the current understanding and perspectives of the durability of CSA cement-based material. In addition, a preliminary study on thermodynamic modelling of the phase development of CSA cement blended with slag was investigated. The preliminary study indicated that the replacement of slag affected the formation of ettringite, monosulfate, aluminium hydroxide, and strätlingite of CSA cement-based materials. The volume of
ettringite, monosulfate, and aluminium hydroxide decrease as the replacement of slag content increases. In the future research, the experiments on the chemical reactions of CSA cement blended with slag will be conducted and will be compared to results of the thermodynamic modelling.
