The mixture of cement and water alone cannot replace concrete because;


Shrinkage of grout is several times that of concrete with the same mass.


The effect of creep of grout is far more than that of concrete.


Heat of hydration of cement with water is more than normal concrete and this leads to the problem of severe cracking.
