Abstract

Supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) have been widely used all over the world in ready-mixed concrete due to their economic and environmental benefits; hence, they have drawn much attention in recent years. Whether deriving from industrial waste, agro-waste or by-products, supplementary cementitious materials can be mixed with blended cement to enhance concrete strength. Supplementary cementitious materials may contain fly ash (FA), silica fume (SF), ground granulated blast furnace slag (GGBFS), rice husk ash (RHA), metakaolin (MK) and palm oil fuel ash (POFA), to name a few. The utilization of these materials in concrete can partially reduce the consumption of Portland cement, which, in turn, can lessen construction costs, providing materials suppliers, contractors and engineers with substantial advantages. Furthermore, despite the drawbacks of their binary blends, the combination of supplementary cementitious materials can lead to many advantages, such as optimized strength, workability and durability. Unfortunately, these advances have not been fully taken into consideration in state specifications. Hence, by adopting a review approach, this study aimed to provide new insights into the effect of the incorporation supplementary cementitious materials on the properties of mortar and concrete.
