Quantitative X-Ray Diffraction Analysis of Anhydrous and Hydrated Portland Cement - Part 2: Computer-Based Methods
The present work reviews current practices in quantitative XRD analysis of anhydrous and hydrated Portland cement. While Part 1 of this two-part work reviews the conventional internal standard method and the reference intensity ratio (RIR) method, Part 2 reviews the more commonly used computer-based methods, which include the Rietveld method (with or without internal standard) and the G-factor method (with external standard). Further, some critical general aspects of the experimental procedures that affect the accuracy of the analysis are discussed.
