1). The detailed influence of C3A and C4AF on the hydration of C3S and C 2S in cement is yet to be worked Concrete Science 17 out. [14] Although the initial process is not clear for C3S (in cements), it appears that C3A hydration products form through solution and topochemical processes. 1 Setting The stiffening times of cement paste or mortar fraction are determined by setting times. The setting characteristics are assessed by initial set and final set. When the concrete attains the stage of initial set, it can no longer be properly handled and placed.

Correlation, based on the Ryshkewitch equation is shown in Fig. 6. Figure 6. Strength vs. porosity for autoclaved and room temperature cured preparations. ) 28 Analytical Techniques in Concrete Science and Technology There are essentially three lines of different slopes. 5% and having a value of about 290 MPa at zero porosity. The second line, CD, represents the best fit for most of the autoclaved specimens, excluding those made with fly-ash. 45). On the basis of the same porosity, at porosities about 27%, the room temperature pastes are stronger than those made by autoclaving.

The cement clinker is produced by feeding the crushed, ground, and screened raw mix into a rotary kiln and heating to a temperature of about 1300–1450°C. Approximately 1100–1400 kcal/g of energy is consumed in the formation of clinker. The sequence of reactions is as follows: At a temperature of about 100°C (drying zone) free water is expelled. In the preheating zone (750°C) firmly bound water from the clay is lost. In the calcining zone (750–1000°C) calcium carbonate is dissociated. In the burning zone (1000–1450°C) partial fusion of the mix occurs, with the formation of C3S, C2S and clinker.
