Abstract: The study of the electrochemical behaviour of the cement-based materials / pore solution
interface is an important topic in order to understand the transport of ionic species. It is also
relevant for the purpose of interpreting the experimental results obtained in ionic transport tests
(natural diffusion, or migration). The inherent issue in the interpretation of experimental results
from ionic transport tests is the link between transport phenomena occurring at pore scale and
the access to only macroscopic data and results. We demonstrate here that the pore size has
impact on the results on ionic concentrations distribution at macroscopic scale. This works
helps to understand why the results of migration tests may lead to wrong interpretations in
terms of material conductivity and ionic diffusivity.
