This volume provides broad coverage of key issues related to the role of calcium hydroxide in cements and concrete. It contains critical topics such as the physicochemical role calcium hydroxide plays in hydration and deterioration of cementing properties as well as the implications of the presence of calcium hydroxide on the future of Portland cement, blended and specialty cements, and ecology of cement production.
