Effect of cement fineness and polycarboxylate dosage on the rheological and mechanical behavior of a mortar
Hassiba Benbouali University, Civil Engineering Department, Chlef, Algeria.
The use of certain organic additives in the production of mortar and concrete influences the workability and the hydration kinetic of mortar. This results in a modification of some properties, namely rheological behavior and mechanical strength. The objective of this work is to evaluate the rheological and mechanical behavior of a mortar by varying the fineness of the cement and using the superplasticizer Polycarboxylate.
