Properties of Cement

             Cement is a binding material used in the preparation of concrete. It binds the coarse aggregate and fine aggregate with the help of water, to a monolithic matter and also it fills the fine voids in the concrete. There are two requirements for any cement in the concrete mix design.
            That is compressive strength development with time and attainment of appropriate rheological characteristics, type and production of concrete. Vibration in the chemical composition and physical properties of cement affect the strength parameters.
