Hydration process of many kinds of cement paste is investigated by powder X-ray diffraction (XRD)/Rietveld analysis. The parameters of the present study are type of cement (Ordinary Portland cement, Low heat cement, and Eco-cement), water to cement ratio (0.50, 0.35), and curing temperature (283, 293, 313K). In this contribution, reaction of aluminate phase (3CaO·Al 2O 3) and ferrite phase (4CaO·Al 2O 3· Fe 2O 3) are focused and evaluated. Experimental results show that the reaction of both aluminate phase and ferrite phase are affected by the temperature and presence of calcite. When system includes calcite, monocarbonate aluminate is mainly produced, rather than ettringite. And in the case of high curing temperature, Al 2O 3 is reacted as amorphous. Regarding ferrite phase, the reaction degree at the age of 1 year decrease as curing temperature increases, this can be presumed due to dense amorphous phase around cement minerals. Based on these experimental facts, simple hydration model is proposed to evaluate development of hydration degree of aluminate phase and ferrite phase.
