Question– The diagrams below show the stages and equipment used in the cement-making process, and how cement is used to produce concrete for building purposes.. Answer The diagrams illustrate the phases and apparatus to make cement and how cement is utilised in the production of concrete for .   It is clear from Fig. 1 that the BS (BS , ) total chloride limit as a percentage by weight of cement for reinforced heat curing concrete and prestressed concrete () are easily violated with concrete mix designs that have w/c greater than Also, the figure shows that BS total chloride limit for this type of concrete is not violated in mix M1 and M2 .

    Cement is a dry powdered chemical that, when mixed with water, slowly reacts to form a hard, solid compound. Concrete is a mixture of cement blended with water and various sizes of aggregates. The cement and water form a paste that glues the aggregates together when it hardens. Concrete, in its freshly. pcy of cement content did not have a high workability (ranging from 0 in. to 3 in. depending on the w/c), but it may be improved by the addition of supplementary cementitious materials, water-reducing agents, or using a different aggregate gradation system. The given cement content range was compared with the values obtained in accordance.

      During this period fresh concrete is transported and placed. At this time, the concrete has not yet hardened and is still workable (plastic and fluid). The length of the dormant period has been shown to vary depending on multiple factors (cement type, admixtures, w/cm, etc.). The end of the dormant period is typically characterized by the. cement, expressed as sodium-oxide equivalent, shall not excel %. For mix design that contain non-reactive aggregates and cement with an alkali content less than %, straight cement or a combination of cement and fly ash, cement and ground granulated blast furnace slag, or cement and microsilica may be used.

Several attempts have been made to devise a method of determining the cement content of fresh concrete. A few years ago a new concept of such a test was originated by R.

Willis. To separate the cement from the aggregate, Willis employed a heavy liquid in which the aggregate would float but the cement being heavier would settle to the bottom. The effects of several practical aspects of Rapid Analysis Machine (RAM) testing of freshly mixed concrete for its cement content are described.

It is demonstrated that the RAM is capable of giving sufficiently reliable results, provided it is properly maintained throughout and used with care by a trained by: 3. As with Portland cement concrete the cement content necessary to achieve a workable concrete increases with decreasing water/cement ratio.

Figure shows the relationship of slump to water/cement ratio for various cement contents. In order to achieve a workable concrete at w/c = a minimum cement content of kg/m 3 is necessary. To ensure good-quality well-compacted concrete.

Neutron activation analysis was used by Covault and Poovey(2) to determine cement content, The amount of cement in a radioactivated concrete sample was determined by counting the radioactivity and determining the cement content from a cement content VB.

count rate curve. The method, however, requires costly. where wcement is the weight of the cement for a given mix. Rapid Analysis of Fresh Concrete. There are a number of tests which separate the components of fresh concrete and test for a variety of mix properties; however, none are as yet accepted by ASTM.

There are some tests that do not require separation of the components of the concrete. Density Of Fresh Concrete (California Test ) Air Content by Pressure Method (California Test ) Air Content by Volumetric Method (California Test ) Proportion of Coarse Aggregate (California Test ) Tests for Compressive Strength (California Test ) Number of Test Cylinders; Frequency of Sampling.

The soundness of cement is related to its ability to retain its volume upon hydration, and is measured using the Le Chatelier apparatus. Fineness if typically measured using the Blaine air permeability test, and is of the order of – m 2 /kg for OPC.

To determine the consistency of the concrete, perform California Test“Method of Test for Ball Penetration in Fresh Portland Cement Concrete,” or ASTM C, “Standard Test Method for Slump of Hydraulic Cement Concrete,” depending on the type of work identified in Section G(6), “Quantity of Water and Penetration or Slump.

Cement analysis. Traditionally, cement analysis was carried out using wet-chemical techniques. Now, the days of flasks bubbling away over bunsen burners in the laboratory of a cement works are largely gone, replaced by X-ray analysis equipment of various types.

A workable concrete should have a right balance between the plasticity and mobility for a particular job in particular place. To develop such a balance, you must select the right type of aggregates, proper proportioning of cement, sand, coarse aggregates, and water, and thorough mixing of the constituents.

Besides plasticity or consistency and mobility, the third most. ( kB) A rapid analysis machine (RAM) has been developed in Britain by the Cement and Concrete Association as a practical method of determining the cement content of fresh concrete. Water is pumped through the sample to separate the cement from the fresh concrete.

Chapter 9: Fresh Concrete Fresh concrete: It is the concrete phase from time of mixing to end of time concrete surface finished in its final location in the structure Concrete Operations: They comprise batching, mixing, transporting, placing, compacting, surface finishing.

Then curing of in-placed concrete starts hours after casting. In the concrete study, the concept of rheology may be applied to analyze the hardened concrete deformation, the behavior of cement paste and slurries, handling and placing of mixed concrete in its fresh state.

Hence rheology is applied in all states of concrete (fresh to hardened). Concrete is a mixture of cement, sand, aggregate, water, and possibly an admixture. Fresh concrete is a lot easier to clean than when it has set.

Compression tests (ASTM C 39) are conducted to determine the compressive strength of concrete (or its ability to resist a crushing force). In this test, a standard test load is applied. the rapid analysis of fresh concrete - part ii.

a rapid method for the analysis of fresh concrete was developed which proved to be reliable and accurate during an extended trial under site conditions. results are presented of a site trial of the equipment and technique over a.

Chemical analysis of concrete can provide extremely useful information regarding the causes of failure of concrete. The tests most frequently carried out chemical tests on concrete structures are: Depth of carbonation Chloride content Cement content Sulphate content Type of cement Alkali content Carbonation Test on Concrete Structures This test is carried out to determine.

This test is made possible by an equipment which is known as Rapid Chloride Permeability test equipment, The test equipment consists of two reservoirs. One of them has % of NaCl solution and another reservoir has M NaOH Solution, Concrete having thickness 50mm and dia mm is used as a test specimen.

cement used as an ingredient of concrete and added to it immediately before or during its mixing. Air-Entrained Concrete -Concrete Containing a small volume of air deliberately rntrained in the form of minute discrete air voids by the addition of an a&entraining agent.

This test method consists of two independent procedures: an oxide-analysis procedure that consists of two sub-procedures and an extraction procedure.

Each procedure requires a substantial degree of chemical skill and relatively elaborate chemical instrumentation. Except for the influence of known interferences, determined cement contents are normally equal to, or.

Water-soluble chloride, if present in sufficient amount, is capable of initiating or accelerating the corrosion of some metallic materials embedded in or contacting cementitious mixtures such as mortar and concrete. Chloride content, along with other factors, can be indicators for the possibility of corrosion of embedded metallic materials.

This test method is used to determine. TEST METHODS Testing Fresh Concrete Testing of fresh EOT concrete entails measuring worka- bility, air content, and maturity. Workability is most often assessed through the slump test (AASHTO T ), with a desired range in slump for EOT concrete often specified between 50 and mm (2 to 6 in.).

Properties of Fresh Concrete Concrete remains in its fresh state from the time it is mixed until it sets. During this time the concrete is handled, transported, placed and compacted.

Properties of concrete in its fresh state are very important because the influence the quality of the hardened concrete. The fresh concrete has the following [ ].It is recognized that the color of a concrete surface is affected by other factors in addition to the color of the cementitious material.

These may include water content, method and time of finishing, cement content, conditions of forms (in the case of formed surfaces), fly ash, and possibly others.
