PREDICTABILITY GAP BETWEEN SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY OF CEMENTS: II, PHYSICAL AND MECHANICAL BEHAVIOR OF HYDRATED CEMENTS

Problems arising from the need to predict the in-service properties of cementitious materials (characterized in Part I) are discussed. The significance of volume changes in cements owing to moisture, frost and sulfate attack, carbonation, and temperature is discussed in terms of existing knowledge. Factors which contribute to strength and the relevance of theories such as bonding action, porosity, surface area, microstructure and degree of hydration, and the phenomenon of creep are reported./AUTHOR/
