Rheological Behavior of Fresh Cement Pastes

By Francisco-José Rubio-Hernández


Rheology of a concrete is mainly controlled by the rheological behavior of its cement paste. This is the main practical reason for the extensive research activity observed during 70 years in this research subfield. In this brief review, some areas of the research on the rheological behavior of fresh cement pastes (mixture method influence, microstructure analysis, mineral additions influence, chemical additives influence, blended cements behavior, viscoelastic behavior, flow models, and flow behavior analysis with alternative methods) are examined

Topics: cement pastes, rheology, particle suspensions, Thermodynamics, QC310.15-319, Descriptive and experimental mechanics, QC120-168.85
