• Water-to-cement ratio influence on low-carbon cements performances 

      Santacruz-Cruz, Maria Isabel; Zea-Garcia, Jesus D.; Londono-Zuluaga, Diana; Cuesta-Garcia, Ana Maria; García-Aranda, Miguel Ángel; [et al.] (2019)
      Portland Cement (PC) is the most important active ingredient in most of the construction concrete. However, the PC production is associated with a high carbon dioxide release (around 1 ton of CO2 per ton of PC). One approach ...
    • X-ray diffraction, cements and environment, three worlds in one 

      Zea-Garcia, Jesus D.; Gomez-de-la-Torre, Maria de los Angeles; Santacruz-Cruz, Maria Isabel; Londono-Zuluaga, Diana; García-Maté, Marta; [et al.] (2017-12-13)
      This keynote lecture will be focused on the strategies for reducing CO2 emissions in the cement production. Concretely, the production of ecocements with optimised formulations that yield reductions in CO2 emissions of up ...
    • X-RAY microtomographic studies of LC3 and related binders 

      Bernal, I.M.R.; Cuesta, A; Santacruz, I; De la Torre, A.G.; García-Aranda, Miguel Ángel; [et al.] (EPFL, 2022-07)
      LC3 type cements do not need introduction in this conference, neither the importance of studying the microporosity features (amount, size(s), connectivities, etc.). However, analysing the porosity in an accurate, ...
    • X-ray powder diffraction applied to cement related phases: in-situ and high resolution applications 

      Cuesta-Garcia, Ana Maria; Álvarez-Pinazo, Gema; Gomez-de-la-Torre, Maria de los Angeles; Santacruz-Cruz, Maria Isabel; Peral, Inma; [et al.] (2014-07-03)
      XRPD is a powerful tool for material characterization in general, and for in-situ studies of chemical processes in particular. The use of an intense X-ray source, .i.e. synchrotron X-rays, coupled with fast X-ray detection ...
