Abstract: The electrical resistivity method was used for measuring the electrical resistivity of cement paste incorporating with fly ash.
The study found that the bulk electrical resistivity (rho)(t) was a function of the solution electrical resistivity (rho)_0(t) and porosity (phi).
A two-component model was proposed, in which (rho)(t) was dominated by (rho)0(t) at the early period of hydration and dominated by (phi) at a later period.
The porosity formation curve was derived from the 2-point method.
A logarithmic equation (rho)(t) =K*ln(t/t0) was proposed to express the electrical resistivity development with time after hardening, where K represents the rate of hydration, and the pastes with fly ash had a lower K.
The setting times and compressive strengths were tested and the results were compared with the electrical properties.
