Cement Concrete

Cement Concrete

 

a general term for concretes that use cement as a binder, primarily, portland cement and its varieties. Cement concrete is the most commonly used material for fabricating precast and cast-in-place concrete and reinforced-concrete structural members and products because it hardens under normal conditions and exhibits excellent physical and mechanical properties—strength, waterproofness, resistance to freezing, and durability.

Also, since concrete is specified on the basis of strength in practice and the use of cement combinations could result in better performance at equal strength than at equal water/cement ratio [28,29], it becomes expedient to investigate the absorption characteristics of the concretes at equal strengths in order to provide more information on their durability and therefore suitability as alternatives to Portland cement concrete.
