  • Calcium silicate hydrate(C-S-H) is the key component to determine the performance of the Portland cement based material C-S-H is a continuous solid material in hydration products. It accounts for 50%~60% of the hydrated cement slurry volume. C-S-H is the main ingredient to decide the hardened cement slurry’s physical structure and performance. At the same time, C-S-H is one of the important influential factors for concrete structure coherence and durability in macro view. Models became increasingly important to predict the bulk properties of cement and concrete, such as shrinkage, creep, permeability and cracking. Two numerical models were presented respectively for the low-density and high-density C-S-H gel phases in cement paste. C-S-H was introduced as an assemblage of discrete granular particles at nanoscale with realistic particle-level properties. With the molecular dynamics method, nanoindentation simulation was performed on each phase. Through control of particle volume fraction of C-S-H and with the other particle-level material properties kept constant, the results further show that the indentation modulus and hardness conform well to the law of the data from nanoindentation experiments in literature.
