This paper presents experimental investigations of mechanical behaviour of a pure cement paste subjected to compressive stresses and chemical degradation. Two series of laboratory tests have been performed: decoupled and coupled chemical-mechanical tests. Hydrostatic and triaxial compression...
In the current study, MRI was applied to investigate lithium and sodium ion diffusion in cement paste and mortars containing inert sand and borosilicate glass. Paste and mortars were treated by complying with ASTM C 1260. Lithium and sodium distribution profiles were collected at different ages...
Advances in engineering the microstructure of cementitious composites have led to the development of fiber reinforced Ultra High Performance Concretes (UHPC). The scope of this paper is twofold, first to characterize the nano-mechanical properties of the phases governing the UHPC microstructure...
This paper presents a model for the carbonation of cementitious matrixes (UR-CORE). The model is based on the principles of the “unreacted-core” systems, typical of chemical engineering processes, in which the reacted product remains in the solid as a layer of inert ash, adapted for the...
The protonation scheme and the hydrogen bond connectivity in the structure of jennite were investigated by ab initio molecular dynamics simulations. The calculated statistics of hydrogen bonds at ambient conditions is consistent with the protonation scheme proposed by Bonaccorsi et al. (2004)...
In-situ monitoring of the changes that take place in the phase composition of cement pastes during accelerated carbonation (100% CO 2 ) for different binders, has been carried out, by taking Neutron Diffraction patterns in parallel with the carbonation experiments. The variation of the intensity...
Carbonation caused by atmospheric carbon dioxide is one of the major physicochemical processes which can compromise the service life of reinforced concrete structures. While the bulk of the carbonation reaction is that of calcium hydroxide, other constituents of the porous matrix can also...
The transport of ions through cement-based materials is described at a microscopic scale with a pore modeled by two infinitely large flat plates. The theory of the electrical double layer (EDL) shows that (i) the overlapping between the diffuse layers occurring in the pore is more important as...
