AbstractScientific publications fall, traditionally, into two general categories: reports of original research and state- of-the-art reviews of areas of research. In both types, scientists communicate with other scientists. If science is to serve technology, however, there must be effective communication or transfer of information between the scientist and the technologist. At present, many believe that such transfer is not very effective and that this ineffectiveness contributes to the difficulty the technologist experiences in predicting the performance of materials. The authors plan a series of papers that will provide a critical assessment of what will be required if research is to improve predictability in the technology of cements. Part I discusses problems involved in the characterization of hydraulic cements in terms of reactivity, role of admixtures, surface area, crystal modification, and chemical composition.
