Processing-Property Interactions in Macro-Defect-Free Cements

  • A. J. McHugh (a1) and L. S. Tan (a1)


Relationships between mixing conditions, viscoelastic paste properties and flexural strength of hardened matrices have been investigated for an MDF cement. The correlation of paste relaxation times and matrix mechanical properties with mixing intensity suggests the build up and eventual breakdown of a network structure during mixing.
