AbstractThermoanalytical methods, especially the differential thermal technique, are used increasingly to evaluate concrete admixtures: for studying the kinetics of hydration, relative effects of different admixtures, effects of various factors on the influence of admixtures, identification, estimation and composition of products, mechanisms, crystallinity, etc. Examples illustrate how one may observe by means of the differential thermal method the effects of accelerators, retarders, water reducers, superplasticizers and mineral admixtures on hydrated pastes formed from cement and cement minerals.
