    Abstract: Recycled glass powder (GP) has recently been widely used as a complementary cementitious material to replace a part of the Portland cement in concrete. However, unlike the chemistry of the Portland cement hydration, more studied and mastered, the mechanism of GP reaction that occurs in-situ during the mixture hydration, is less studied. To overcome... Show More
