RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN STRENGTH AND THE COMPOSITION AND FINENESS OF CEMENT

Data from new experiments and from work published during the past 40 years are subjected to regression analysis to determine the relationship between strength and the composition and fineness of cement. The original authors differed in their opinions on the relative importance of C3S and C3A. The controversy is examined against a background of experience with a group of materials that are representative of portland cement in general and in terms of an analysis based on a model in which, during the first weeks of hardening, the strength developed by C3S depends on the proportion of C3A in the cement.
