Lafarge Type III cement
was used in the station's 662 precast concrete elements, including columns, stairs and wall panels.
The results showed that the 3-years-since-tree-death fibers from small logs (diameter < 11 inches) with type III cement and calcium chloride (Ca[Cl.
As type III cement has the characteristics of finer particles, shorter reaction time, and improved early strength, these results can be expected.
The patches were constructed mainly with Type III cement
, four types of coarse aggregate, and three types of fine aggregate.
An aggressive design-build project delivery method, combined with the use of Lafarge Type III cement to maximize productivity and accelerate production, helped open the bridge in just 18 months.
To maximize cost-effectiveness of the process, and meet the aggressive timeline of the design-build process, the bridge was constructed using local materials, including high-early-strength Type III cement from Lafarge for the precast, prestressed concrete sections.
Port-Daniel--Gascons production will center on Type I/II low and moderate alkali and Type III cements
Use high-early-strength (Type III) cement: Type III cements
have a higher rate of hydration and therefore a higher rate and amount of heat generated, as well as an increased rate of strength gain.
