    Abstract

    The authors have shown in previous work that the response of cement paste to an alternating electrical field can be used to monitor early hydration processes and microstructural development within the paste. In this technical note, it is shown that such techniques can also be used to quantify accurately the effect of admixtures on the setting of cement paste. Results are reported for two commonly used admixtures.
