AbstractCement mortars containing 0 and 10% silica fume were prepared at a water/cement + silica fume ratio of 0.60 and sand/cement ratios of 0, 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 1.8, 2.0, 2.25 and 3. 0. Pore-size distributions were studied by mercury intrusion and reintrusion. More pores of (97 produces 0. 175) x 10[3] nm size form at the sand interface for mortars with silica fume than without it. There is only a slight difference in the fine pore distribution with and without silica fume.
