Following the International Conference on Calcium Aluminates 2022, the conference’s proceedings have been published as a 540-page volume, edited by Dr Charles Fentiman and Raman Mangabhai.
This volume contains over 50 international contributions with the most up-to-date information about calcium aluminates and their unique properties. The proceedings cover a wide range of topics: new types, hydration and durability studies including blended systems, the latter are now widely used and some of these have significantly different hydration chemistry to the pure calcium aluminates. A variety of applications of these interesting cements is also covered, including traditional applications such as concretes for contrasting marine situations (seabed and coastal), temperature-resistant refractory applications, formulated blended systems within the building chemistry sector along with the necessary admixtures and the many uses in corrosive biogenic situations that give sewage system infrastructure a considerably longer lifespan. Other new applications such as 3D printing, thermochemical storage encapsulation, oil well cements, and ettringite-based repair systems are also explored.
The peer-reviewed papers presented in these proceedings include a wide variety of techniques used by the authors to deliver new understanding of aspects of these cements and will undoubtedly drive future research into the various aspects of these cements.
