A review on cement degradation under CO2-rich environment of sequestration projects
MetadataShow full item record
Global warming arising from the release of greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere is one of the biggest issues attracting a lot of attention. One of the conventional problems in sequestration projects is the degradation of Portland cement due to its exposure to supercritical CO2. This paper gives a review on the laboratory work performed to understand changes in the mechanical and transport properties of cement when it is in a CO2 rich environment. The results obtained indicated that pozzolanic material could be useful in enhancing the cement resistance against CO2, although more studies are still required to confirm this conclusion.

(2015)One of the most common methods used in road-pavement construction is the stabilizing of the conventional pavement base course layer. This is achieved by adding cement or lime to gain better material performance. However, ...
