Multiphysics for Early Stage Cement Hydration: Theoretical Framework
The chemical hydration involves complex multiphysical processes including mass and energy transfer, chemical reactions and consequently stress development and shrinkage. This paper proposed a multiphysics numerical model to predict the kinetics cement paste. The chemical reaction theory, heat transfer theory, diffusion theory, and continuum mechanics were coupled in the theoretical model. A comprehensive theoretical model is established with partial different equation system, auxiliary functions, and typical boundary conditions.
