  • Rheological properties of cementitious suspensions (such as mortar and concrete) can change severely when a new cement batch/production date 1,2 is used. Particularly mixes containing dispersing admixture can be affected. Such a cement-admixture interaction problem 3 can cause various difficulties on construction sites. Too stiff concrete needs more workforce to be compacted properly and too liquid concrete could segregate. Previous research has shown that silica fume can reduce this effect… CONTINUE READING
