Paper Title:
The Relationship between the Strength and the Pore Structures of Cement Paste with Mineral Admixtures
  Abstract

This paper presents the effects of mineral admixtures and the water to binder ratio (W/B) on the tensile and compressive strength and micro pore structure of hardened cement pastes. The test results show that: with the water to binder ratio increasing, the tensile and compressive strength of cement paste with different mineral admixtures will decrease, air content and mean pore diameter will decrease and the cement paste with the ground blast furnace slag is the lowest. The artificial neural network based on its nonlinear mapping function can fit the relationship between strength and pore structure more accurate than an empirical formula.
