1.1 types of portland cement. several different types of cement have been used successfully for stabilization of soils. type i normal portland cement and type ia airentraining cements wereused extensively in the past and gave about the same results. at the present time, type ii cement has largely replaced type i cement as greater sulfate.
According to portland cement, ordinary portland cement (gb1751999), the national standard, the strength grades of ordinary cement can be divided into: 32.5, 32.5 r, 42.5, 42.5 r, 52.5, 52.5 r, and their ages should be no less than the numerical value in table 4 initial setting time of ordinary cement should not be earlier than 45 min, and final setting time should not be later than 10 h.
Advantages of concrete: 1. lower life cycle cost (production maintenance): although cement is costly, cement paste occupies only 25 to 40 of total volume of concrete. 2. mouldability: initially, the concrete is in plastic stage so that it can be cast into any shape. 3.
Also, because c h a p t e r 1 introduction 6 concrete technology for transportation applications many power generating plants are converting from coal to gas as fuel, the potential shortage of fly ash is prompting departments of transportation (dots) to modify their concrete specifica tions to allow more use of alternative scms such as slag.

Concrete is a mixture of cement, sand or other fine aggregate, and a coarse aggregate that for most purposes is up to 19 to 25 mm (0.75 to 1 inch) in size, but the coarse aggregate may also be as large as 150 mm (6 inches) when concrete is placed in large masses such as dams. mortars are used for binding bricks, blocks, and stone in walls or as.
Concrete is the core component of any civil engineering construction. conventional concrete can be modified depending upon the needs and requirements of the construction.
