2014-3-28  Cement, fly ash, slag tend to be more expensive. In a typical concrete mix design, cementitious material might be only about 14% of the mix’s weight, but cement SCMs could comprise 42% of the cost for the same mix. By using the SCM method to calculate recycled content for this mix design, we effectively triple its MRc4 contribution.
