The limited availability of Portland blastfurnace cement or Portland pfa cement, and the need for versatility in meeting a wide range of needs and specifications, has meant that the ready-mixed concrete industry has been more inclined to use ggbs or pfa added directly to the concrete at the mixing stage rather than already pre-blended in the cement. 17 Strength requirements for common classes of cements to BS 12, 146, 4246, 6588 and 6610 and for blends of Portland Cement to BS 12 and ggbs or pfa Portland pfa cement are that the properties are guaranteed by the maker, who also undertakes the sampling and testing.

Benefits of temperature reduction in massive pours; sulphate resistance, resistance to alkali-silica reaction Cement shortage in some parts of the UK in earlier years Agrément Board Certificates for selected ggbs and pfa Quality assurance schemes developed by the ready-mixed concrete industry in conjunction with manufacturers of the ggbs and pfa © 1992 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC (xiii) Experience of the ready-mixed concrete industry of ggbs and pfa concretes (xiv) Use by major specifiers and contractors on prestigious contracts (xv) Use of ggbs and pfa elsewhere in the world.

QSRMC assessors check that higher ggbs or pfa proportions are not being used by ready-mixed concrete producers. Because 2- or 7-day strength is usually more critical than 28-day strength, or other parameters, in comparison with BS requirements, these control the percentage of ggbs or pfa in combinations. The 28-day results are very rarely, if ever, critical control parameters restricting the proportion of ggbs or pfa to cement which can be used in concrete. 5 Handling of ggbs or pfa. 10 An example of the use of results from a monthly test blend to determine the maximum percentage ggbs in a combination with pc to BS 12 (v) Increased aeration and steeper outlets needed for pfa silos to prevent arching, (vi) Replacement of air slide conveyors by screw feeders or bucket elevators for pfa (vii) Ensuring that, with cumulative weighing, cement is always batched first and ggbs or pfa second (viii) Training of batcherman in using new batch instructions and judging workability of ggbs and pfa concrete.
