Abstract: Though substantial amount of information is presently available on the behaviour of concretes to fix certain guidelines for durability, the influence of specific parameters like type of cement and the effect of different aggressive chemicals on them is not yet well understood. Moreover, the behaviour of concretes with blended cements like Portland pozzolana cement, Portland blast furnace slag cement have not been studied in comparison to their corresponding ordinary Portland cements from the same production facility with the same clinker. In view of this, the present study attempts to assess the performance of two Portland pozzolana cements and their corresponding ordinary Portland cements from the same cement plant and two blast furnace slag cements and their corresponding ordinary Portland cements also from the same factory. Primarily, apart from the mandatory strength, durability and corrosion resistance characteristics of three concretes in the normal strength range with each of these cements were investigated and compared.
