Title: X-Ray Nanotomography of Cement Microstructure
Author(s): D. A. Lange, Y. Jia, and Y.-S. Liu
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 9-16
Keywords: interfacial transition zone (ITZ); microstructure; nanotomography
Abstract:X-ray nanotomography was explored for investigation of the microstructure of cement paste in various ages, including 1-day and 28-day. 2D and 3D images were obtained for quantitative analysis and morphological reconstruction. The technique also provided a prospect of viewing interfacial transition zone (ITZ), of which the microstructures were simulated and the evolution of components with respect to the distance from the interface was calculated.
