The focus of this work was to study the reactivity of glass powder of a certain fineness by using a new experimental approach and to establish specifications for the use of glass powder as a pozzolanic material in concrete by developing glass powder hydration reaction equations. Experiments were carried out to determine the different quantities and proportions of glass powder, calcium hydroxide and water to establish the hydration reaction. Models that describe the hydration of the glass powder with and without calcium hydroxide are also developed in this paper. The developed models are validated using the results of the experiments. Using these models, predictions of the structure of the hydration products are obtained.
