Abstract
This study considers P.O42.5 cement from different sources and evaluates the related surplus coefficient (defined as the proportionality factor linking the measured compressive strength value of the cement after 28 days to the “standard” value of cement strength). The needed tests have been conducted using a mixer, a pressure testing machine, a flexural testing machine, a vibrating table a ramming rod, a feeder and a metal ruler. The average value of the measured cement strength surplus coefficient of cement produced by five distinct cement manufacturers has been found to be 1.16. These results can be used as the basis to reduce the production cost and improve the performance of commercial concrete.
