In this paper a non-destructive, contactless free-space method is used for measurement and monitoring of cement-based materials' properties. The propagation factor, penetration depth and reflection and transmission coefficients of the plane wave, interacting with the high lossy specimen, is analysed. Results of the measurement and monitoring of cement-based materials properties during all stages of their lives and different curing conditions are presented. The expected applications of the results for propagation modelling are discussed.
