AGGREGATE-CEMENT BOND, CEMENT PASTE STRENGTH AND THE STRENGTH OF CONCRETE

A REVIEW IS GIVEN OF AVAILABLE DATA ON AGGREGATE-CEMENT BOND STRENGTH, CEMENT PASTE STRENGTH, AND THEIR INFLUENCE ON CONCRETE STRENGTH. MAJOR POINTS COVERED INCLUDE THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN BOND AND PASTE STRENGTHS OF DIFFERENT BRANDS OF CEMENT, THE EFFECT OF THE CHEMICAL COMPOSITION OF ROCK ON BOND TO NORMAL AGGREGATES TO THE INFLUENCE OF WATER/CEMENT RATIO AND MATURITY ON BOND AND PASTE STRENGTHS. OTHER VARIABLES CONSIDERED ARE VIBRATION, ADMIXTURES, SURFACE TEXTURE AND SURFACE CONTAMINATION OF AGGREGATES, SIZE OF AGGREGATE AND AGGREGATE ABSORBPTION. A SURVEY IS MADE OF THE RELATIVE IMPORTANCE OF MECHANICAL AND NON-MECHANICAL FACTORS IN BOND. /A/RRL/
