Investigation of the Rheological Behavior of Sustainable Alternative Cementitious Binders

Sustainability icon, disabled. A green leaf.

The primary goal of this research is to conduct a parametric study on the rheology of fresh cementitious binders made using sustainable materials such as fly ash and slag. The research will focus on exploring several factors, such as the effect of constituent materials, superplasticizer content, and water-binder ratio on the flow characteristics of cementitious binders. The research will aim to establish design guidelines for developing alternative cementitious binders with a known set of flow characteristics.
