In this paper, the effect of the mix composition on rheological behavior of fresh cement-sand mixture is studied by considering a mixture as a two-phase model that is decomposed into a granular and a paste phase. The paste itself is subdivided into void paste and excess paste. Void paste fills the void space between the grains when they are in a fully compacted state while excess paste will use the remaining paste to form a paste layer around each individual grain particle, with equal thickness. By considering each grain particle covered with the excess paste layer as a single element, the rheological behavior of cement-sand mixtures can be related to their inter-element interactions for all sets of particle combinations.
