Research challenges for broader application of alternative binders in concrete

Abstract

Rapid population growth and urbanisation have imposed the need to develop more sustainable construction solutions in line with the seventh basic requirement for construction works - sustainable use of natural resources. One of the strategies is to use materials available in abundant quantities to create alternative binders for concrete. An opportunity in this dynamic field is the availability of numerous types of by-products and waste materials, which can be used for the development of various types of alternative binders. The aim of the paper is to pinpoint some scientific challenges that need to be dealt with to ensure broader application of alternative binders in engineering practice.
