9 Aging Phenomena Aging, withm the context of surface chemical considerations, refers to a decrease in surface area with time. For hydrated portland cement this definition can be extended to include changes in solid volume, apparent volume, porosity and some chemical changes (excluding hydration) which occur over extended periods of time. Shrinkage and Swelling. The volume of cement paste varies with its water content, shrinking when dried and swelling when rewetted. It has been found that the first drying shrinkage (starting from 100% RH) for a paste is unique in that a large portion of it is irreversible.
