Phase equilibria in the system Ca<sub>4</sub>Al<sub>6</sub>O<sub>12</sub>SO<sub>4</sub> – Ca<sub>2</sub>SiO<sub>4</sub> – CaSO<sub>4</sub> – H<sub>2</sub>O referring to the hydration of calcium sulfoaluminate cements
This paper presents thermodynamic calculations of the stable hydrate assemblages in calcium sulfoaluminate cements containing different amounts of ye’elemite, calcium sulfate and belite. The ternary diagrams developed in this paper can be used directly to assess the long-term composition of such calcium sulfoaluminate cements containing belite. The phase diagram was validated using experimental data from literature. The ternary diagrams developed can be used to read out directly the stable hydrate assemblage of calcium sulfoaluminate cements containing belite based on their initial composition.
