Experimental Study on Microcosmic and Microscopic Properties of C100 High-Strength Concrete
In order to study high strength and other characteristics of high strength concrete, scanning electron microscopy and mercury pressure method were used to analysis the surface morphology, organization, structure, composition and fractal features of C100 high strength concrete materials in terms of the microscopic mechanism, and the material strengthen mechanism and the causes of failure were revealed. The results shows that, as the adequate hydration and particle hydrates increase in C100 concrete, more gel-like mesh or wrinkles are generated, and there is a strong bonding effect between fine particles. As the use of mixing composites material in C100 high strength concrete, the density of the material is improved and the proportion of harmful hole is lowed, and its mechanical properties and durability are all improved. When concrete is damaged, cracks increase and coalescence show an increase of fractal value.
