Concrete Science Research Brief: Properties of Polymorphs of Belite

January 1, 2013

This research provides new information about polymorphs of belite obtained by atomic scale modeling. Results of impurity defects, which vary reactivity for γ-C2S and β-C2S polymorph, can be used to control reactivity of belite. Information on surface energetics of polymorphs with impurities can shed also light on grinding processes. MORE
