Abstract: Increases in curing temperatures not only affect the rate of hydration, but also the degree of polymerization of C-S-H. Hydration and polymerization are independent processes. Increased curing temperatures also coarsen the capillary pore size distribution. Time-dependent volume changes (creep and drying shrinkage) can be correlated with changes in the pore size distribution and the properties of C-S-H. Silicate polymerization can be considered as a measure of the aging process of cement paste.
