By Wieslaw Kurdowski

This monograph describes cement clinker formation. It covers multicomponent platforms, clinker part buildings and their reactions with water, hydrate composition and constitution, in addition to their actual homes. The mineral additions to cement are defined as are their impact on cement-paste houses. exact cements also are mentioned. The microstructure of concrete is then awarded, and particular emphasis is given to the position of the interfacial transition region, and the corrosion strategies within the gentle of cement-phase composition, mineral additions and w/c ratio. The admixtures' function in glossy concrete know-how is defined with an emphasis on superplasticizer chemistry and its cement-paste rheological amendment mechanism. Cement with strange homes, similar to calcium aluminate, white, low power and expansive cements are characterised. The final a part of the booklet is dedicated to big sorts of concrete comparable to self compacting and to reactive powders.
