Grinding-related parameters of blast furnace slag cements (BFC), such as Bond grindability, specific rate of breakage and breakage distributions were determined employing separate and intergrinding modes. Strength tests were performed on mortar specimens made by BFC prepared by these modes of grinding to the same fineness. Overall results favor the use of separate grinding mode in view of lower specific energy consumption, case of manufacture, higher addition of slag on top of more flexible product quality arrangement.
