Development of Performance Properties of Ternary Mixes

The goal of this project is to provide the quantitative information needed to make sound engineering judgments pertaining to the selection and use of supplementary cementitious materials in conjunction with Portland or blended cement. This will lead to a more effective utilization of supplementary materials and/or blended cements enhancing the life-cycle performance and cost of transportation pavements and structures. The efforts of this project will be directed at producing test results that support the following specific goals: (1) Provide quantitative guidance for ternary mixtures that can be used to enhance the performance of structural and pavement concrete; (2) Provide a solution to the cold weather issues that are currently restricting the use of blended cements and/or supplementary cementitious materials; (3) Identify how to best use ternary mixes when rapid strength gain is needed; and (4) Develop performance-based specifications for concrete used in transportation pavements and structures.
