Research on Shrinkage and Cracking of Cement Paste Based on Environmental Scanning Electron Microscope
In order to study the shrinkage characteristics of cement paste, environmental scanning electron microscope was used to observe the microstructure shrinkage of cement paste and cement mortar under different humidity. The results showed that : with the relative humidity decreased from 80% to 10%, the shrinkage cracking of paste microstructure appeared in different degree and increased continuously,also the regression analysis showed the relative humidity and shrinkage was conical relationship.
