Paper Title:
Measurement and Prediction of Absorption of Cementitious Systems Using RILEM Vacuum Saturation Method
  Abstract

Measurement and prediction of absorption of concrete by saturation method is presented. Measurement of absorption of concrete consisting of supplementary cementitious materials was conducted by using vacuum saturation method in accordance to RILEM. Pulverized fuel ash and silica fume were incorporated as partial cement replacements for the preparation of various combinations of cementitious composite systems. Absorption of cement matrix containing ordinary Portland cement, pulverized fuel ash and silica fume at various ages is reported. Based on the experimentally obtained results, analytical prediction models were developed. These models enabled the establishment of isoresponse contours showing the interactive influence between the various parameters investigated.
