Rice husk ash (about 95% silica) with known physical and chemical characteristics has been reacted with lime and water. The setting process for a lime-excess and a lime-deficient mixture has been investigated. The product of the reaction has been shown to be a calcium silicate hydrate, C-S-H(I)+ by a combination of thermal analysis, XRD and electron microscopy. Formation of C-S-H(I) accounts for the strength of lime-rice husk ash cement.
