Synopsis The hydration behavior of Portland cement and C 3 S with and without stress applied were studied at water to solid (w/s) ratios of 0.35 and 0.50. A greater degree of hydration and denser microstructure were obtained with hydration under stress at an early stage of the hydration process, normally within 48 hours. This observation was confirmed by the determination and comparison of CH content, TGA results, surface area and pore-size distribution of samples hydrated with and without… CONTINUE READING
