EVALUATION AND ADAPTATION OF THE DOBROLUBOV AND ROMER METHOD OF MICROSCOPIC EXAMINATION OF HARDENED CONCRETE. METHODS AND EQUIPMENT USED IN PREPARING AND EXAMINING FLUORESCENT ULTRATHIN SECTIONS

This report explains the methods and equipment used of produce fluorescent impregnated, polished, ultrathin sections of portland cement concrete. These sections are used in the study of the microstructure of concrete and are examined by means of a microscope which combines the features of a petrographic microscope with those of a microscope having incident fluorescing capabilities. The unusual features of this microscope are detailed. Brief instructions for the use of teh microscope are given. A few of the features made visible by this preparation method and this microscope are shown in photomicrographs. /FHWA/
