The hydration degree assessment of slag blended cement pastes with three different replacement levels (10, 20 and 40%) and two finenesses (400 and 500 m2/kg) was investigated. The hydration degree was evaluated by using a modified TG method suggested by Deboucha et al., 2017. This method builds on the activity coefficient concept, which makes it possible to assume the amount of mineral additives that contribute to hydration reactions as well as cement. Results showed that the efficiency of blast furnace slag in developing hydration degree was conditioned by its level of replacement and fineness.
