cement content

cement content, cement factor

The quantity of cement contained in a unit volume of concrete or mortar, preferably expressed as weight, but frequently given as bags of cement per cubic yard of concrete, e.g., a 6 ½-bag mix.

As it can be seen, the slopes of the fatigue lines have decreased by addition of I (PM) cement content. The reduction in slope of the fatigue line with increased cement content is the sign of changing the characteristics from a typical asphalt mixture to a cement treated material.
Proper cement content, proper moisture content and adequate compaction are the basic factors controlling construction.
The unconfined compressive strength was found to increase with the increase of cement content and curing time [3,7, 9,10,12-14,19,25].
Taking several key factors that affect the uniaxial compressive strength of analogue soft rock samples into consideration--such as density, curing time, cement content, plaster content, water-cement ratio, and concrete-hardening accelerator content--uniaxial compressive tests were conducted on 124 specimens with 32 different sets of properties, as shown in Table 1.
Tested in a concrete mix with 20 percent ASTM C618 material, a colloidal silica admixture shows the potential to enhance fresh concrete properties; reduce high range water reducer and air-entraining agents; increase early and 28-day compressive strengths as measured against control specimens; and, allow a reduction in cement content while maintaining target, hardened-concrete properties.
They have found that the permeability of concrete decreases rapidly when the silica fume content exceeds 8% of cement content. Dotto et al.
Among the technical benefits, there are the increase of early strength, the control of bleeding in concrete with low cement content, and the low sensibility to the lack of curing (Moir, Kelham 1997).
The different mixtures of cement content lateritic soils and coarse aggregates were worked manually.
authorities, concrete quality is measured according to its air-entrainment, strength, water/cement ratio, cement content, and concrete slump.
Richard and Cheyrezy [3] proposed that the optimal content of SF is about 25% of cement content, and Chan and Chu [4] thought that the optimum content of SF is 20%-30%.
[52] investigated the utilization of bagasse ash in reducing the cement content of stabilized bricks.
