Durability of Cementitious Systems Incorporating Calcined Low-Grade Kaolin Clays

The project aims to (1) Investigate the effects of the chemical and physical characteristics, and of the replacement levels of calcined low-grade kaolin on strength evolution in cementitious systems, (2) Establish the impact of low-grade kaolin characteristics and substitution levels on the durability of cementitious systems exposed to aggressive conditions during service life.
