## Determination of Soundness of Cement by Le-Chatlier’s Principle

Soundness of cement can be defined as its ability to retain its volume after it gets hardened. This means that a properly sound cement will undergo minimum volume change after it converts into the hardened state.In the soundness test of ...

## Determination of Specific Gravity of Cement and Its Importance

The specific gravity is normally defined as the ratio between the weight of a given volume of material and weight of an equal volume of water. The portland cement have a specific gravity of value around 3.15. When it comes to ...
