Question 1
 
0 out of 1 points
 
As the roasting temperature increases from 1200 to 1400
o
C stronger cement is produced.
 
S
elected Answer:
 False
Feedback:
 Increasing the roasting temperature leads to more alite being produced. It isalite which contributes greatest to the strength potential of the cement.Therefore, increasing the roasting temperature leads to a stronger cement.
Question 2

W
hat is the theoretical capillary porosity in a fully hydrated cement paste atw/c 0.5?
 
S
elected Answer:
 0.5%
Feedback:
 The capillary porosity of a fully hydrated cement paste with w/c = 0.5 isabout 14%.

I
n the picture above, identify the phase marked A
 WPC.tif 
S
elected Answer:
 ettringite
Feedback:
 The image is an electron micrograph of white Portland cement hydrated for one day. The image shows hexagonal portlandite crystals (A), long needle-like ettringite crystals (B) and a mass of 'fluffy' C-S-H (C).
Question 4

W
hich of the following is not used in the manufacture of Portland cement?
 
S
elected Answer:
 clay
Feedback:
 Portland cement is manufactured by roasting limestone and clay atapproximately 1450
o
C and then grinding the resultant clinker with gypsumand some additional limestone. Therefore, lime is not a raw material.
Question 5

B
oth calcium sulphate and iron sulphate are added to cement clinker upondrying.
W
hich of the following is NOT a reason for this?
 
S
elected Answer:
 
They aid grinding of the cement
 
Feedback:
 Calcium sulphate is a grinding aid and prevents flash set, whilst ferroussulphate controls Cr(VI) levels. Neither affect concrete durability (at leastdirectly).
Question 6
 
1 out of 1 points
 
F
lash set can occur when there is not enough of which phase present in thecement?
 
S
elected Answer:
 calcium sulphate
Feedback:
Flash set occurs when aluminates hydrate in the absence of sulphates. It isto prevent flash set that gypsum is added to the cement clinker duringgrinding.
