Porosity and Water Absorption of Aerated Concrete with ...

in aerated concrete, is important when considering performance. In this paper the properties of density, porosity, capillary suction and water absorption are investigated for aerated concrete produced. Aluminium powder was used with the percentage ranging between 0.25 and 1% by cement weight in order to produce the aerated concrete.

Strength, Water Absorption and Porosity of Concrete ...

Jan 01, 1996  The water absorption for the two series of concrete is shown in Table 5 and Fig. 2. It can be seen in the table that the water absorption, for both series, increases as the W/C ratio increases. The maximum absorption was observed at W/C ratio of 0.55. As the W/C ratio becomes larger than 0.55, water absorption decreases.

DURABILITY OF AUTOCLAVED AERATED CONCRETE

Autoclaved aerated concrete is a porous building material. As a consequence, there is a strong interaction between water, water vapour and the porous system. Most properties of porous materials depend on the moisture content (Künzel 1971; Svanholm 1983; CEB-Manual 1978; Yxhult AB 1993).
