Fineness of Cement – Definition – Test - Definecivil

Fineness of cement Definition. Fineness of cement is an important physical property of cement that defines the particle size and the surface area of cement particles. It is expressed in %age when determined as a modulus with sieving or units of cm2/gm or m2/kg in case when determine by Blaine air permeability apparatus.
