Özet

This paper reports results of investigations on suitability of scoria (PTS), collected from Patnos (Agri) in Turkey, for blended cement production. Scoria (basic pumice) was chosen as cement replacement materials due to its availability and cost in Agri in Turkey. The portland cement was replaced by scoria within the range of 0, 5, 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50%. Characterization of scoria was subjected by the X-ray fluorescence (XRF), X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), BET surface area and porosity, zeta potential (zeta) and thin sections. The standard tests were conducted for the obtained fresh and hardened states of scoria blended cement paste. Furthermore, the obtained cements were characterized by the XRF. According to experimental results, scoria up to 20% ratio could be added into clinker and it has a good potential of manufacturing blended scoria cement.
