The structure of self-compacting concretes containing electric arc-furnace slag, their mechanical behavior, and their durability are all studied in an extensive experimental campaign, to evaluate the suitability of three concrete mixes for use in real construction works. Specimens manufactured with self-compacting electric arc-furnace slag concrete are subjected to wetting-drying and freezing-thawing test procedures, for their study in aggressive environments, especially marine environments. In general, all the test results were quite encouraging. It was once again demonstrated that the use of electric arc-furnace slag in concrete represents an opportunity to reduce both the volume of siderurgical waste generated in our society, and the consumption of fresh raw materials.
