Abstract

Fifteen commercial Portland cement clinker samples with a wide range of chemical compositions were subjected to grinding tests and relationships between grinding energy requirement attained specific surface areas and various chemical parameters were found. Regression analyses of the test results revealed that the energy-fineness relationship is exponential, and grinding energy is correlated with Al2O3, free CaO, liquid phase contents, silica moduli, and (C3S + C2S)/(C(3)A + C(4)AF) ratios of the clinkers.
