Synchrotron radiation energy-dispersive X-ray diffraction analysis of salt distribution in Lepine limestone
We describe an analytical application of synchrotron radiation energy-dispersive diffraction tomography to map the distribution of crystalline sodium sulfate deposited by evaporation from solution within a building limestone.
Capillary absorption of water and n-decane by autoclaved aerated concrete
An autoclaved aerated concrete was one of three construction materials used in the round-robin study of hygral properties carried out in the European Commission funded Heat, Air and Moisture Standards Development [HAMSTAD] ...
Original Research Paper: Enhancing the rate of ex situ mineral carbonation in dunites via ball milling
•Dunitic materials with enhanced CO2 uptake were created via ball milling (BM).•The optimum conditions are 12h of BM with 50wt% ethanol as process control agent.•The BM process increased the CO2 uptake of dunites by a ...
Enhancing the rate of ex situ mineral carbonation in dunites via ball milling
The investigation of potential options for CO 2 sequestration is of vital importance for alleviating the ongoing climate problem. This paper presents an efficient method for enhancing the ex situ carbonation of dunites. ...
Direct measurement of the wetting front capillary pressure in a clay brick ceramic
The absorption of a liquid into a rectangular bar of an initially dry porous material that is sealed on all surfaces except the inflow face is analysed in terms of Sharp Front theory. Sharp Front models are developed for ...
Overview of the Pathology, Repair and Strengthening of Adobe Structures
Adobe construction is considered to be an important feature of the international architectural heritage. To achieve the effective preservation of culturally significant adobe structures, the factors that cause their ...
