Scope and objective
The objective of this report is to compile and to present experiences in research and field use of slag cement in concrete and mortar, and to offer guidance in its specification, proportioning, and use. Presented is a detailed discussion of the composition and production of slag cement, its use, and its effects on the properties of concrete and mortar. Slags from the production of metals other than iron differ greatly in composition from slag cement and are not within the scope of this report.
