The individual volumes are complete and comprehensive monographs which usually treat the structure, properties, manufacturing, and applications of these materials. Besides materials scientists the series is intended for engineers in research and development. This book is an attempt to consolidate the published research related to the use of Supplementary Cementing Materials in cement and concrete. It comprises of five chapters. Each chapter is devoted to a particular supplmenting cementing material. It is based on the literature/research findings published in journals/conference proceedings, etc. Topics covered in the book are: coal fly ash, silica fume (SF), granulated blast furnace slag (GGBS), metakaolin (MK), and rice husk ash (RHA). Each chapter contains introduction, properties of the waste material/by-product, its potential usage, and its effect on the properties of fresh and hardened concrete and other cement based materials.
