HARDENED SLAG-CEMENT PASTES OF VARIOUS POROSITIES 1. COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH & DEGREE OF HYDRATION AND TOTAL POROSITY

Hardened blast-furnace slag-cement pastes were prepared from cements of different blaine areas, and mixed with various water/cement ratios in the range 0.20-0.70. The pastes were cured for various periods ranging from 1 to 365 days, and the degree of hydration, total porosities and compressive strengths were determined. It is recommended in this investigation that the compressive strength values be compared at either constant total porosities or constant degree of hydration. The results obtained could indicate that the total porosity plays a more dominant role in affecting the strength than the degree of hydration. /Author/TRRL/
