Analysis of Chemical Composition of Portland Cement in Ghana: A Key to Understand the Behavior of Cement

Article English OPEN
Mark Bediako; Eric Opoku Amankwah;

The performance of Portland cement in concrete or mortar formation is very well influenced by chemical compositions among other factors. Many engineers usually have little information on the chemical compositions of cement in making decisions for the choice of commercia... View more
