The basic hardening process - The Concrete Society

When the constituents of concrete (cement, aggregate and water) are brought together, the cement and water chemically react and eventually set to form a hard mass which adheres to and binds together the aggregates to form concrete. Setting takes time, approximately two hours after which the hardening process (strength development) can be ...

Difference between initial and final setting time of concrete

Jul 08, 2019 · The initial setting time is the exact moment when the concrete starts to harden. In theory, this time starts as soon as the water is added to the cement. The final setting time is the moment the concrete has hardened enough so that a five-millimetre square needle no longer penetrates the surface. Technical aspects of concrete setting time. It ...

Normal consistency test - Cement & Concrete in India

May 22, 2020 · Normal Consistency test helps to determine water content for other tests like initial and final setting time, soundness & compressive strength. In Soundness (Le-chatelier method) 0.78 P (P=Consistency of standard cement paste) is considered. For Setting time P is value is taken as 0.85P (P=Consistency of standard cement paste) is considered.
