Portland Cement Specific Gravity

Specific gravity is normally used in mixture proportioning calculations. The specific gravity of portland cement is generally around 3.15 while the specific gravity of portland-blast-furnace-slag and portland-pozzolan cements may have specific gravities near 2.90 (PCA, 1988[1]).
