Abstract
The paper discusses a possibility of using an ultrasonic wave transmission method to study the influence of superplasticizers on the formation of structure of cement pastes at early ages. When compared to mixtures without additives, lower P-wave velocity was found through superplasticized cement pastes, indicating that superplasticizers prevent formation of a solid network frame. Comparing to sulfonate naphthalene-formaldehyde superplasticizers, polycarboxylate ether (PCE) admixtures retarded the solid network frame development more intensively, resulting in a plateau on a P-wave velocity curve during the setting period. The length of the plateau is proportional to the dosage of the PCE and inversely proportional to the specific surface area of the hydration products developed, proving that the specific surface area of a solid phase affects the performance of the PCEs. Validation of ultrasonic results was determined on the basis of the temperature evolution of the material in time.
