The Effect of Storage Period on the Physical and Mechanical Properties of Portland Cement

Ahmad J. Ibrahim


The aim of this research is to study the certain storage period on the physical and mechanical properties of Portland cement, and comparing this with the primary test at one day after production from the factory for the same cement. The results show that with increasing storage period the water /cement ratio for standard consistency would increase, initial and final setting time decrease, also the compressive strength will decrease.

Keywords: Cement, Portland, Properties, Storage.
