The sustainability of concrete depends on both its material properties and its durability. The sustainability of concrete can best be improved by using a low w/b ratio, increasing the use of supplementary cementing materials and fillers, producing more durable concrete, designing more efficient concrete mixes by optimizing the particle packing, and better educating civil engineers   Materials Data Book Edition Cambridge University Engineering Department.

When pozzolanic materials are incorporated to concrete, the silica present in these materials react with the calcium hydroxide released during the hydration of cement and forms additional calcium silicate hydrate (C – S – H), which improve durability and the mechanical properties of concrete(6) The book's diverse slate of expert authors assemble invaluable case examples and performance data on the most important groups of materials used in construction, highlighting aspects such as nomenclature, the properties, the manufacturing processes, the selection criteria, the products/applications, the life cycle and recyclability, and the The objective of the composition studies is to develop correlations between the chemical and physical properties.

Further, the composition studies are to define a set of practical analytical methods to describe composition.
