Studies of Hydration and Drying in Cement Pastes by Scanning X-Ray Absorptiometry

Published

Author(s)

K K. Hansen, Dale P. Bentz

Abstract

Hydration and drying in cement pastes are studied by the x-ray environmental chamber at DTU. By using the x-ray detector to detect changes in internal density (indicative of drying), the influence of w/c ratio on drying during hydration is quantitatively examined.
