Pore Structure and Microstructure of Foam Concrete

Abstract:

Article Preview

The pore structure and microstructure of the foam concrete was analyzed by scanning electron microscopy and light microscopy combined with digital image analysis. The results show that: (1) even-distributed fine and close pores resulting in high strength and low permeability; (2) uneven-distributed large size pores and open pores lead to low strength and high permeability; (3) light microscopy combined with digital image analysis is a cheap and convenient tool fitting for the pore structure analysis of the foam concrete; (4) scanning electron microscopy is very appropriate for the pore structure and microstructure analysis of the foam concrete.
