Analysis of cement-bonded materials by multi-cycle mercury intrusion and nitrogen sorption.

The pore systems of cement-based materials are studied by N(2) sorption and mercury intrusion porosimetry (MIP). Pore size distributions and internal surfaces are derived. Especially in materials with a broad pore size distribution, these (and other) methods generally do not lead to coincident results. It is shown here, how the interpretation of the… CONTINUE READING
