Statistical Modeling of the Geometrical Structure of the System of Artificial Air Pores in Autoclaved Aerated Concrete

The aim of this paper is to present a geometrical model for the system of artificial air pores. It starts from the assumption that single pores are spherical. For the spatial arrangement of the pores, the well-known penetrable-concentric-shell or "cherry pit" model is used. This model can be easily simulated and is therefore useful for future investigations of bulk properties of autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC). Comparison with samples of AAC shows that the model yields a good fit. The model has sufficient parameters so that it can be adapted to a broad spectrum of AAC type; the model might be suitable also for other porous building materials.
