The Fineness test of cement is done by sieving cement sample through standard IS sieve The weight cement particle whose size greater than 90 microns is determined and the percentage of retained cement particle are calculated
FINENESS So we need to determine the fineness of cement by dry sieving as per IS 4031 Part 1 principle of this is that we determine the proportion of cement whose grain size is larger then specified mesh size The apparatus used are 90m IS Sieve
For finding the fineness of Wet or Dry cement following number sieve is recommended by ASTM Cement by wet process 300 sieve Cement by dry process 200 sieve 16 APPARATUS Sieve 200 Sample of cement
The required fineness of good cement is achieved through grinding the clinker in the last step of cement production process As hydration rate of cement is directly related to the cement particle size fineness of cement is very important Importance of Cement Fineness The fineness of cement affects hydration rate and in turn the strength Increasing fineness causes an increased rate of hydration
Aug 08 2017 The ability to provide strength of a certain type of cement is checked by finding the fineness of that cement because the fineness of cement is responsible for the rate of hydration and hence the rate of gain of strength and also the rate of evolution of heat
Jan 28 2019 Since cement particles are very fine smaller than 90 micron hence sieve analysis is not suitable for cement Due to this disadvantage fineness of cement is always measured by air permeability method expressed in terms of specific surface area For a given weight of cement
Determination of Fineness Modulus of Sand To determine the fineness modulus we need standard sieves mechanical sieve shaker optional dry oven and digital weight scale Sample preparation Take a sample of fine aggregate in pan and placed it in dry oven at a temperature of 100 110 o C After drying take the sample and note down its weight
Sieve shown in pic below is not the actual 90m just for reference Procedure to determine fineness of cement i Weigh approximately 10g of cement to the nearest 001g and place it on the sieve ii Agitate the sieve by swirling planetary and linear movements until no more fine material passes through it
Drop 100 gm of cement in 90 m sieve and close it with the lid Now shake the sieve with your hands by agitating the sieve in planetary and linear movements for 15 minutes After that take weight the retained cement on the 90 m sieve as W2 Fineness W2W1 100 Then after calculate the percentage of Weight of cementretained on Sieve
What Is Fineness Modulus of Sand Fineness modulus of sand fine aggregate is an index number which represents the mean size of the particles in sand It is calculated by performing sieve analysis with standard sieves The cumulative percentage retained on each sieve is added and subtracted by 100 gives the value of fineness modulus
Aug 08 2017 1 Test No1 Fineness of Cement by Sieve Analysis Method THEORY IMPORTANCE This experiment is carried out to check the proper grinding of cement The cement which is produced by an industry is checked for its quality that either it is good for certain type of construction or it doesnt possess that much strength
To determine the fineness of the cement we have used the Sieve analysis method A sieve analysis or gradation test is a practice or procedure to assess the particle size distribution also called gradation of a granular material To start the experiment we have prepared 100 grams of cement sample
Sieve Analysis of Aggregates Civil Engineering i The test sample is dried to a constant weight at a temperature of 110 5oC and weighed v Fineness modulus is obtained by adding cumulative percentage of 28Days Strength of Concrete in 15 Minutes Determine The Maximum Dry

CHAPTER 2 SIEVE ANALYSIS AND FINENESS MODULUS Sampling Since the reason for sampling aggregates is to determine the gradation particle size of the aggregate it is necessary that they be sampled correctly
Sep 01 2014 What is Fineness Modulus of Aggregate Fineness modulus is an empirical factor obtained by adding the cumulative percentages of aggregate retained on each of the standard sieves ranging from 80 mm to 150 micron and dividing this sum by 100 Why to Determine Fineness Modulus Fineness modulus is generally used to get an idea of

Aug 14 2019 Fineness modulus of aggregate is an index number which gives an idea about the finance of aggregate and is an approximate proportion of the average size of particle in the aggregate It is found out by sieve analysis test of standard size in the laboratory The thumb rule is lower the fineness modulus particles are smaller and higher the fineness modulus particles are larger

Theory Fineness modulus of coarse aggregates represents the average size of the particles in the coarse aggregate by an index number It is calculated by performing sieve analysis with standard
Sieve analysis ASTM C33 is used to find the cumulative percent passing Calculate the fineness modulus of an aggregate and describe what it indicates The fineness modulus is the sum of the cumulative percent retained on specified sieves divided by 100
