This research work discusses both the physical and durability characteristics of newly blended cement containing waste crushed brick. This waste is used as a partial substitution for clinker in cement. Thus, blended cements are obtained by grinding and homogenizing clinker, waste brick, and gypsum. Four compositions containing 0%, 10%, 20%, and 30% of waste materials were prepared and submitted to various characterization tests. The introduction of brick powder improved the physical characteristics, therefore; it improved the mechanical properties and durability performance of the new cement compared to the reference, prepared with 0% addition. More particularly, it resisted sulfuric acid (H2SO4) attack after fixation of portlandite by pozzolan.
