Linking Chemistry, Kinetics, and Microstructure with Cement Hydration Simulations

Published

Author(s)

Jeffrey W. Bullard

Abstract

Models of cement hydration can take a number of mathematical and computational forms depending on the phenomena to be studied, the time regime to be spanned, the required accuracy, and other considerations. This paper will focus on one kind of model, namely a full reaction-transport microstructure model, showing how the model can be implemented with kinetic cellular automata and surveying the kinds of results and insights that can be gained from it.
