Cement Chemistry an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Cement chemistry can affect the dispersion efficiency of superplasticizers in various ways. One of these is through the ionic composition of the aqueous phase and in particular through the amount of soluble sulfates. The milestone paper on this subject comes from Yamada and Hanehara (2001).

Cement’s basic molecular structure finally decoded MIT

Sep 09, 2009· Scientists have long believed that at the atomic level, cement hydrate (or calcium-silica-hydrate) closely resembles the rare mineral tobermorite, which has an ordered geometry consisting of layers of infinitely long chains of three-armed silica molecules (called silica tetrahedra) interspersed with neat layers of calcium oxide.

Notation in cement chemistry

Cement chemists use a form of notation which, at first sight and maybe second or third sight may seem a little odd. Oxides are referred to by their first letter: 'C' represents CaO; 'M' is MgO and so on, for all the oxides likely to be encountered in cementitious systems, as shown below.

Cement Wikipedia

Portland cement, the most common type of cement in general use around the world as a basic ingredient of concrete, mortar, stucco, and non-speciality grout, was developed in England in the mid 19th century, and usually originates from limestone. James Frost produced what he called "British cement" in a similar manner around the same time, but did not obtain a patent until 1822.

How Concrete is Made Cement

Portland cement's chemistry comes to life in the presence of water. Cement and water form a paste that coats each particle of stone and sand—the aggregates. Through a chemical reaction called hydration, the cement paste hardens and gains strength. The quality of the paste determines the character of the concrete.

What is Cement? History- Chemistry- Industries Civil

The most commonly used cement nowadays is a hydraulic cement (i.e. hardens when water is added) known as Portland cement or Portland cement blends. These are usually the basic ingredient in making concrete, which is a construction material used as a load-bearing element. Portland cement is suitable for wet climates and can be used underwater.

Concrete: Scientific Principles

Concrete is not as likely to rot, corrode, or decay as other building materials. Concrete has the ability to be molded or cast into almost any desired shape. Building of the molds and casting can occur on the work-site which reduces costs. Concrete is a non-combustible material which makes it fire-safe and able withstand high temperatures.
