1 Review
This volume is the outcome of a critical review of the most important and useful aspects of science and technology of cement. The contents present a combination of cement chemistry including mathematical modelling, manufacture showing geology of limestone and other raw materials, concrete and other blends, instrumental analysis showing thermoanalytical techniques, and x-rays. This publication should be of specific interest to students and researchers, material scientists, cement chemists and technical personnel, and engineers in cement and concrete industry and laboratories.
