Microwave curing (MC) is a method that can accelerate hydration of cement, which results in rapid strength increase of mortars. This study investigates effect of microwaving curing on the strength of mortar the effect of MC (460 W,5, 10, 15, 30 mins) and the effect of MC (700 W, 5, 10, 15, 30 mins). MC can be used to determine the hydration degree of the mortars and rapid strength increase of mortars. Additionally, Newton, Page, Henderson and Pabis, Geometric, Wang and Singh drying models were compared with each other to determine the moisture content at a given moment in the dryer. The performances of these models are compared according to the correlation coefficient (r), the estimated standard error (es) and the sum of the squares of the residuals ( ) between the observed and predicted humidity ratios. According to the results obtained, for all drying conditions the drying behaviors of the products are explained better by Page Model as compared others.
