Microstructural characterisation of porous construction materials- major challenges

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This paper focuses on the microstructural characterisation of porous construction materials. The attempt was made here to assess the existing methods of analysis of pore structure in cementitious materials, such as Mercury Intrusion Porosimetry (MIP) and Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC). Due to a number of simplifying assumptions and limitations on the use of individual methods, it is not possible to describe in a qualitative, reliable way the microstructure of porous construction materials. The way to achieve this goal is to employ a wide range of complementary techniques.
