Hydration and microstructure characterization of cementitious materials

The doctoral course is jointly organized by the Department of Structural Engineering, NTNU, Norway, and the Laboratory for Concrete and Construction Chemistry, Empa (Swiss Federal Materials Research Institute) Switzerland.

Scope of Course
The course will provide the students with an understanding of the typically used techniques for microstructure charac- terization of cementitious material and ability to interpret data.

Topics
- Physical principles of the following techniques: TGA, XRD, SEM-EDS, calorimetry, chemical shrinkage measurement
- Evaluation and interpretation of measurements
- Sample preparation
- Prediction of kind and amount of phases using ternary diagrams
