Influence of Cement Particle Size Distribution on Strength of Hardened 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 hardened 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.
