Influence of Cement Particle Size Distribution on Strength of Cement Paste
On the basis of the principle for the highest filling degree of cement hydrates, it is synthetically considered that a matching connection between hydration of cement, volume increment of solid phase and packing density of cement paste, a calculation method for a connection between cement continuous particle size distribution and strength of cement paste is developed and tested by experiment. Based on above-mentioned analysis, a tentative research on the effect of particle size distribution of cement on strength is carried out.
