T451With nitrogen, it varies from 3 to 147 m2/g. Solvent replacement techniques, used in place of d-drying technique, yield different surface areas. [36]t47] This may be responsible for the increased surface area. t481 The method of drying seems to determine the extent to which further layering and agglomeration of C-S-H sheets occurs during the removal of water, and this manifests itself in surface area decreases and shrinkage. Subsequent treatment, such as wetting and drying and application of stress, also affects these properties.

The unhydrated particles are shown in plate A. Within a few minutes of hydration the surface of the particles contains a non crystalline deposit (B). After three days of hydration, the features show a combination of Types I and II morphology (C and D). After seven days of hydration, a more compact structure consisting of massive plates of calcium hydroxide can be seen (E). At twenty-eight days, equant grains representing Type III morphology are discerned (F). The morphology of C,S hydrated for different periods is shown in plates F to K.

At high salt concentrations, other phenomena, such as a change in the range of freezing temperatures or the effect of high viscosity of the saline solution on the mechanical properties of the body, have to be considered. In concrete, the pores of the aggregate may be such that the pore water may readily freeze. Larger pores, equivalent to air-entrained bubbles (diameter > 100 A), may not exist in the aggregates. Thus, the tendency to expand due to freezing of water will either be taken up by elastic expansion of the aggregate or by water flowing out from the aggregate under pressure.
