Report from S&T Project 19142: Characterizing novel supplementary cementitious materials to reduce infrastructure costs and improve durability

The production of durable and long-lasting concrete is essential for Reclamation structures. Materials such as ASTM C150 cement and Class F Fly Ash have been proven for decades to produce quality concrete. Recent changes to environmental policy and new sustainability goals within the concrete industry has led to changes in the types of materials available to produce concrete. With these changes comes uncertainty on the ability to produce quality concrete. This report summarizes available alternative cementitious materials and supplementary cementitious materials. It compares the fresh and hardened properties of concrete made with these materials. It also identifies the relevant ASTM documents that can be used to test and specify these materials.
