Abstract The paper analyses the potential of blended lime-cement mortars to substitute blended lime-natural hydraulic lime mortars as repair mortars in restoration works, since the availability of natural hydraulic lime is reduced in many countries, unlike cement. The study focuses on the pore structure of both types of blended mortars and its implications on their water transport properties, initial mechanical strength and overall incompatibility risk. The influence of binder type and… CONTINUE READING
