Abstract: This article focuses on simulating the moisture transport processes permeation, diffusion, and capillary absorption of cement mortars. The main goal is to derive the according transportation coefficients directly from the morphology of three-dimensional microtomographic data sets of the mortars investigated, without further assumptions.
