Measuring and Modeling Analysis of Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy for Hydration Procedure of Cement Materials


Article Preview

In this paper, the electrochemical impedance spectroscopy method is applied to characteristic the hydration procedure in cement materials. And a new equivalent circuit model is developed to express the hydration procedure of cement material. As cement paste is a complicated electrochemical system with multi-phase transmission, the equivalent circuit model is considered with the additional double layer capacitance effect at the interface among the hydration products in cement materials. It can express the electrochemical station in cement material, as the multi-phase mass transmission in the cement-based material during the hydration procedure.
