Paper Title:
Microstructure of High Strength Concrete Mercury Intrusion Porosimetry and Thermogravimetry Analysis
  Abstract

Microstructural properties such as pore structure and hydration play a decisive role in determining the properties of a concrete. This paper presents the investigation on pore structure and hydration process of high strength concrete. Pore structure study was conducted using mercury intrusion porosimetry and hydration progress was monitored using thermogravimetry analysis on various blended combinations of cementitious materials incorporating fly ash and silica fume as partial cement replacement. It was found that silica fume refined the pore structure efficiently and reduced the calcium hydroxide content as early as 1 day. All ternary blended systems containing fly ash and silica fume exhibited lower calcium hydroxide content and refined pore structure in comparison to their respective blended pastes.
