Topic Information

Dear Colleagues,

Cementitious material is the artificially engineered material that is produced in the largest quantities. Many novel cementitious materials were developed and used in different industries, such as UHPC, ECC, geopolymers, some non-Portland cements, etc. They show many special and interesting properties that could be useful to satisfy the increasingly demanding requirements on mechanical and durability properties of infrastructures under heavy loads built in severe environments. Low-carbon cementitious material has been a hot research issue in recent years. The recycling of solid waste to make useful building materials is studied intensively. The relationship between their composition, microstructure, and properties has been under intensive study in recent decades. Therefore, this Topic invites the submission of works related to the preparation and microstructural characteristics of novel cementitious materials, as well as their properties and applications in different fields. The Topic may be very useful for readers to gain a greater understanding of novel cementitious materials. For the authors, this Topic will be a good opportunity for publication after peer review by expert researchers of cementitious materials. Review articles by experts in the field will also be welcome for submission.

Tricalcium aluminate is an important phase of Portland clinker. In this paper, three polymorphs of C3A were prepared by means of the solid-state synthesis method using intensive milling of the raw material mixture which was doped with various amounts of Na2O and sintered at a temperature of 1300 °C for 2 h. The final products were evaluated through X-ray diffraction using Rietveld analysis. The effect of the Na dopant content on the change in the crystalline structure of tricalcium aluminate was studied. It was proven that the given preparation procedure, which differed from other studies, was close to the real conditions of the formation of Portland clinker, and it was possible to prepare a mixture of different polymorphs of calcium aluminate. Fundamental changes in the crystal structure occurred in the range of 3–4% Na, when the cubic structure changes to orthorhombic. At a dosage of Na dopant above 4%, the orthorhombic structure changes to a monoclinic structure. There are no clearly defined boundaries for the existence of individual C3A phases; these phases arise at the same time and overlap each other in the areas of their formation at different Na doses.
