Abstract

Several studies demonstrated that X-ray computed micro-tomography is a well-known method to measure the porosity of materials such as concrete. In addition, many user-friendly programs are available for image processing in order to obtain the most accurate results. In this paper, a procedure to characterize the porosity of air-entrained concrete is presented. This non-destructive technique was applied in order to observe the porosity, pores distributions and pores geometries of concrete samples using X-ray computed tomography. The study demonstrates that the pores/voids in the air-entrained concrete can be visualized using a 3D reconstruction of 2D images stack, and the pores/voids can be quantified as well.
