PHYSICAL CONSTITUTION OF HARDENED PORTLAND CEMENT PASTE (AS REVEALED BY STUDIES OF ITS WATER CONTENT) AND ITS RELATION TO THE PROPERTIES OF HARDENED CONCRETE

THE DISCUSSIONS PRESENTED AT AN OPEN MEETING OF THE COMMITTEE ON WATER IN HARDENED CONCRETE ARE REPORTED. AFTER A REVIEW OF THE EMPIRICAL RELATIONSHIPS PERTAINING TO THE CONSTITUTION OF PORTLAND CEMENT PASTE, INCLUDING CLASSIFICATION OF WATER IN HARDENED PASTE, AND PASTE POROSITY, THE FOLLOWING TOPICS WERE DISCUSSED: VOLUME CHANGES THAT ACCOMPANY CHANGES IN MOISTURE CONTENT AND TEMPERATURE, FREEZING OF WATER IN HARDENED PASTE CONSIDERED IN RELATION TO THE DURABILITY OF CONCRETE. AN ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY PERTAINING TO WATER IN PASTE OR CONCRETE IS APPENDED. /AUTHOR/
