Abstract

Strength development of Calcium Aluminate Cement (CAC) under various environmental conditions is an interesting subject of topic that pay attention of researchers for a long time. This special cement usually preferred in applications where quick setting ability, high early strength and resistance to chemical attack is required. However, uncertainty in the hydration process and long-term strength problems, due to conversion reactions in combination with high initial material cost, limit the application of this cement.
