A CHAPTER ON THE CHEMICAL PROPERTIES OF hydraulic cements was included in ASTM STP 169C and this chapter is largely similar to that in the previous edition. It provides an overview and introduction to the chemistry of hydraulic cements, which has been, and remains, a fascinating and challenging topic for researchers, engineers and specifiers. Many aspects of hydraulic cement chemistry directly influence cement properties and performance in concrete, and an understanding of the chemistry can provide insight into specification provisions and test methods.
