Effects of Cement Type on Concrete Maturity

Prediction of concrete strength is important for safe and economic construction, application and scheduling of critical processes such as form removal, posttensioning and transportation of prefabricated elements, etc. One of the common methods for this makes use of the maturity concepts, which was first developed in the early 1950s. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the effects of cement type on concrete maturity through: checking the validity of the common maturity functions for different types of the cements, and relating the maturity of concrete to the heat of hydration of cement.
