|Effect of Particle Size on the Compressive Strength of Cement
|Cement is very essential part of the modern life. In the present study, the effects of the particle size and their distribution on mechanical and structural properties are explained via few experimental studies. The seven samples of cement were selected for the study. These samples were grind unit ball mill for different time duration. Their mean particle size is reduced substantially by ball milling. The ball milled samples were characterized viz x-ray diffraction, particle size analyser and x-ray fluorescence. These samples of cement are mixed with standard sand in a definite proportion for the manufacturing of blocks. Then their compressive strength is measured by compressive strength machine. It is observed that lower particle size exhibit higher compressive strength with lower setting time.
