With over 8,000 cubic yards of concrete, the building’s frame is one of the most complex concrete structures to ever be built in Ohio.
The San Francisco International Airport, owner of this green concrete project, set out to demonstrate its leadership in sustainable building by achieving LEED credits for its new parking structure through the use of concrete made with supplemental cementitious materials, specifically slag cement.
The Louisville Metropolitan Sewer Department developed a sewer water basin to collect rain water runoff and help control flooding. Utilizing 50% slag cement helped reduce the heat of hydration on the mass concrete used for the project.
Slag cement was used to prevent thermal cracking in the thicker segments of the floor, walls, and roof. It was also used to decrease the permeability of the concrete floor, walls, and columns and to provide sulfate resistance against the storm/sewage waste water
This project included not only 61 wind turbines, but also transmission lines and a new substation, all of which contained varying amounts of slag cement in the over 48,000 cubic yards of concrete.
This project includes the construction of a 25-floor high end luxury condominium building off Bayshore boulevard in Tampa Florida. Slag cement was used on this project in multiple mix designs, however, the most important usage was a 50% replacement rate in the mix used for columns which required 10,000 PSI.
The Tappan Zee Bridge is a twin cable-stayed bridge built to replace the original Tappan Zee Bridge over New York’s Hudson River. The bridge was designed for a 100 year service life and utilizes slag cement in almost every portion of the bridge, from the top of the cable stay columns to the mass concrete foundations.W
St. Marys Cement recently expanded and modernized their Charlevoix, Mi plant. 15% slag cement was used in the construction of a 23,000 ton blending silo to control the set time and strength gain of the concrete.
slag cement replacement percentages from 18.5 percent to 24.4 percent; overall, slag compromised about 23 percent of the cementitious content
This project includes the reconstruction of a 300-foot long by 200-foot wide taxiway bridge.
This project included over 200 mass concrete placements, most including 65-70 percent slag cement.
This bridge replacement project consisted of almost 2,000 feet of concrete pavement, widened lanes, sidewalks, and two bike lanes.
This 83-story, mixed use building utilized slag cement in over 13,000 cubic yards of mat foundation concrete, all vertical elements, and 50 percent of the elevated decks.
The use of slag cement also helped reduce the buildings environmental impact, resulting in an approximate savings of 6.7 million pounds of carbon emissions.
More than 20 percent slag cement was used as a portland cement replacement to enhance color and reduce overall concrete costs for this elementary school
Slag cement was used in mass concrete pours and in ternary mixtures to increase bridge strength, reduce permeability, and to improve the workability of the concrete.
This building used 50 percent slag cement in all concrete applications including; foundation, slab-on-grade, paving, sidewalks, casting beds, and tilt-up panels.
