Concrete Science Research Brief: Clinker Grindability - Microstructure Matters

April 1, 2013

This multi-scale investigation of fracture properties with the microscratch test highlights the importance of microstructure in clinker grindability. This original approach also provides a means for investigating the effects of microstructural characteristics (e.g. crystal size, porosity, belite clustering) on the grindability of clinkers. MORE
