• Amorphous determination in calcium sulfoaluminate materials by external and internal methods 

      García-Maté, Marta; Santacruz, Isabel; Cuesta, Ana; León-Reina, Laura; Aranda, Miguel A. G.; [et al.] (ICE Publishing, 2014)
      External standard methodology has been successfully applied to quantify the known amounts of amorphous component that are increasingly added to cement-related materials. The consistency and accuracy of the methodology were ...
    • Reactive belite stabilization mechanisms by boron-bearing dopants 

      Cuesta, Ana; Losilla, Enrique R.; Aranda, Miguel A. G.; Sanz, Jesús; De la Torre, Angeles G. (Elselvier, 2012-01-27)
      Belite-rich cements hold promise for reduced energy consumption and CO2 emissions, but their use is hindered by the slow hydration rates of ordinary belites. This drawback may be overcome by activation of belite by doping. ...
    • Rheological and hydration characterization of calcium sulfoaluminate cement pastes 

      García-Maté, Marta; Santacruz, Isabel; De la Torre, Angeles G.; León-Reina, Laura; Aranda, Miguel A. G. (2015-05-14)
      Calcium sulfoaluminate (CSA) cements are currently receiving a lot of attention because their manufacture produces less CO2 than ordinary Portland cement (OPC). However, it is essential to understand all parameters which ...
    • Rietveld quantitative phase analysis of Yeelimite-containing cements 

      Álvarez-Pinazo, Gema; Cuesta, Ana; García-Maté, Marta; Santacruz, Isabel; Losilla, Enrique R.; [et al.] (Elsevier, 2012-03-26)
      Yeelimite-containing cements are attracting attention for their tailored properties. Calcium sulfoaluminate, CSA, cements have high contents of Yeelimite and they are used for special applications. Belite calcium sulfoaluminate, ...
    • Synthesis and scaled-up of non-active and active Belite-Alite-Ye'elimite clinker (BAY) 

      Zea-Garcia, Jesus D.; Aranda, Miguel A. G.; De la Torre, Angeles G.; Santacruz, Isabel (2017-05-17)
      Ordinary Portland cement (OPC) is an environmentally contentious material, as for every ton of OPC produced, ~0.97 tons of CO2 are released. This opens the need of designing new formulations of cements formed by low calcite ...
