Abstract: The autogenous deformation of Portland cement paste blended with 0%, 50% and 70% blast furnace slag (BFS) was measured by the Mini-Temperature Stress Testing Machine (TSTM) developed at Delft University of Technology. The experimental result shows that the autogenous deformation can be characterized by four stages. The cement paste first expands for a short time, and then undergoes a contraction. After a stable stage, the sample starts to contract again. At early age, the low reactivity of BFS leads to a slower hydration process and a smaller deformation. After the reaction of BFS is activated, the Portland cement paste blended with BFS shows a larger autogenous deformation than the pure Portland cement paste at later stages.
