Abstract: In this paper, the reactivity of slag-cement blends was investigated by thermogravimetric (TG) analysis. Two types of slags were investigated with various replacement rates (3%, 5%,10%, 20%, 30%, 40%, 80%, and 95% by mass) of slag in cement. Two water binder ratios were used, w/b = 0.45 and 0.35. The reaction was stopped at four different time points: after 1 day, 7, 14, and 28 days. A simple correlation was presented to predict Ca(OH)2 content as a function of slag amount and reaction time.
