The dormant period of cement hydration

In the aim of interest is the early stage of reaction, after the initial mixing and the first reaction climax and before the concrete starts to harden. This period is so called the dormant period. For the building practice this period plays an important roll, because it controls the

S, a dormant period occurs, it is th e case for gluconate addition. During hydration a complex calcium-gluconate adsorbs on first C-S-H nuclei and prevents them from

Cement Chemistry The Concrete Portal

2019-11-1  This is termed as the ‘dormant’ or the ‘induction’ period. This period is followed by the main peak of cement hydration, which is associated with the rapid dissolution of C 3 S to form CSH and CH, and formation of ettringite (AF t) from C 3 A.

2019-7-14  This is called as the Dormant Period. The existence of the dormant period allows the concrete to be transported to the construction site and placed and finished in the forms. Stage 3 Hydration Acceleration: The end of the dormant period shows the beginning of the setting at which time the cement

Properties and effects of dormant aggregates on concrete

2019-11-1  Aggregates used for concrete are sometimes abandoned on sites for extended periods of time. These aggregates are left dormant and exposed to harsh weather conditions before utilization. This study investigates the effect of aggregate dormancy of both fine aggregate (river sand) and coarse aggregate (gravel) on quality of concrete produced and its strength.

An integrated macro-microscopic model for concrete

2020-12-1  Concrete deterioration caused by external sulfate attack (ESA) is a macro-microscopically interactive expansion process, including two stages, namely a dormant period and detrimental duration. Based on ESA-induced deterioration mechanism, an integrated macro-microscopic model has been developed to describe the deterioration of concrete.

2021-5-10  The existence of the dormant period allows concrete to be transported to the construction site and placed and finished in the forms, the end of the dormant period represents the beginning of setting, at which time the cement again starts to react more rapidly with water as

Properties and effects of dormant aggregates on concrete

2019-11-1  The analysis of the performed experiment on the dormant aggregates was presented through tables and figures. The finding of the study shows that that the strength of the concrete increases yearly due to reduction of silt content, high specific gravity, and an increase in the water absorption of the dormant aggregates.

Concrete Monitoring in Extreme Weather Condition AKCP

2021-5-21  The dormant period is one of the most important stages because the concrete is still stiff to be in the workable and controllable condition. This phase ends with the initial set of concrete. PHASE 3: Strength Acceleration Period. In the 3rd stage, concrete starts to gain strength as it

Stage 3- Hydration Acceleration: The end of the dormant period shows the beginning of the setting at which time the cement starts to react more rapidly with water. This will result in the formation of new

Why Concrete Temperature Testing Is Important During

2018-3-23  During this period fresh concrete is transported and placed. At this time, the concrete has not yet hardened and is still workable (plastic and fluid). The length of the dormant period has been shown to vary depending on multiple factors (cement type, admixtures, w/cm, etc.). The end of the dormant period is typically characterized by the

dormant period is responsible for the concrete remaining workable for a set period of time. The dormant period is a result of the hydration process only occurring at

Hydration of Cement Chemical Reactions in Hydration

2020-4-8  Stage-1 corresponds to a period of rapid evolution of heat, which ceases within about 15 min.; Stage-2 corresponds to a dormant period which lasts for several hours during which the hydration is almost at halt.This is the reason why the concrete remains in plastic state for several hours. Stage-3 corresponds to acceleration period starting at the end of dormant period and lasting till the rate

Then for the next 2 to 4 hours follows a relative inactivity, known as induction/dormant period (stage 2). Portland cement concrete remains in the plastic state for several hours due to this prolonged phase of inactivity. At the end of the induction period tricalcium silicate continues to rapidly hydrate and by 4 to 8 hours it has reached its

NPCA National Precast Concrete Association

2020-7-21  Next, the dormant period gives way to the third accelerated phase of hydration. The C 3 S in the cement continues to react, and the concrete gains strength as CSH continues to form. The release of heat rises again but then falls during the fourth stage, which is commonly referred to as the deceleration period despite early strength gain still

Properties of Concrete Portland Cement Association

2014-7-1  During the dormant period the paste is still plastic and the concrete can still be handled and placed. As the cement continues to hydrate, more hydration products are formed and the solid matrix becomes more dense and rigid. This period is called the setting or transition period as it represents the period during which the paste transforms from

Cement The major cements: composition and properties

2021-5-22  Following the dormant period (which can last several hours), the cement begins to harden, as CH and C–S–H are produced. This is the cementitious material that binds cement and concrete together. As hydration proceeds, water and cement are continuously consumed.

Types of Admixtures of Concrete & Cement Chemical, Mineral

2017-3-18  Retarding admixtures delay the end of the dormant period and the start of setting and hardening. This is useful when used with plasticizers to give workability retention. Used on their own, retarders allow later vibration of the concrete to prevent the formation of cold joints between layers of concrete placed with a significant delay between them.

TDR Concrete msi-sensing

2017-12-11  The figure shows the transient stable during the initial dormant period, and then showing a loss of free-water and the growth of bound-water at around 10 hours. Then bound water reaches a peak around 20 hours, and then begins to fall as water becomes more tightly-bound and the TDR frequency spectrum broadens.

Concrete slab curing Home

2015-6-13  The critical curing period begins when the concrete reaches the end of its 'dormant' period (and heat evolution peaks) up to roughly 48 hours (heat evolution tapers off) in which the majority of hardening occurs. If moisture isn't present at this stage the formation of calcium silicate hydrate and calcium hydroxide will be retarded and the
