Paper Title:
A Novel Approach to Determine the Elastic Properties of the Interphase between the Aggregate and the Cement Paste
  Abstract

Concrete is a three-phase material consisting of cement paste matrix, discrete inclusions of sand (aggregate), and an interfacial transition zone (ITZ) between the matrix and the inclusions. In order to calculate the elastic properties of the ITZ of cement mortar, We model the material as a composite formed by a matrix with embedded spherical particles; each surrounded by a concentric spherical shell. With help of the generalized self-consistent method (GSCM), equations of bulk modulus and shear modulus of ITZ are deduced, and Elastic properties of ITZ are computed by using experimentally known elastic properties of the composite. It is found that the shear modulus of ITZ is about 50% of that of the cement paste matrix.
