Papers presented at the Workshop on the Role of Calcium Hydroxide in Concrete, Holmes Beach, Anna Maria Island, Florida, 1-3 November, 2000.This special volume provides broad coverage of key issues related to the role of calcium hydroxide in cements and concrete. As well as providing critical information in this area, it also presents a novel look at important aspects of cement hydration and deterioration. Selected Contents: Calcium Hydroxide Issues: An Industrial View; An Overview of the Roles of Ca(OH)2 in Cementing Systems; Role of Alkaline Reserve in the Acidic Resistance of Cement Pastes; Influence of Calcium Hydroxide Dissolution on the Transport Properties of Hydrated Cement Systems; The Strength and Fracture of Concrete: The Role of Calcium Hydroxide; Ettringite - Friend or Foe?; Free Lime Content and Unsoundness of Cement; Dinner Speech by R. H. Davis entitled 'Looking for Soul in Concrete'.
