Characterization of ladle furnace basic slag for use as a construction materialSetién Marquínez, Jesús | Hernández Manrique, David | González Martínez, Javier Jesús |
The use of ladle furnace basic slag (LFS) as a cementitious material in industrial applications requires an in-depth knowledge of its characteristics. This paper presents the data characterizations of several kinds of LFS, setting out referential values for their use in construction and civil engineering applications that refer to chemical, mineralogical and microstructural data as well as to thermal and infra–red analytical results. The aim is to provide a detailed overview of this material for anyone with an interest in gaining further knowledge of its specific properties for application as a construction material.
