10104031010401 Microstructure of ConcretePreviewMicrostructure-property relationships are at the heart of modern material science. Concrete has a highly heterogeneous and complex microstructure. Therefore, it is very difficult to constitute realistic models of its microstructure from which the behavior of the material can be reliably predicted. However, knowledge of the microstructure and properties of the individual components of concrete and their relationship to each other is useful for exercising control on the properties. This chapter describes the three components of the concrete microstructure, namely, hydrated cement paste, aggregate, and interfacial …
