UTILIZATION OF ELECTRON PROBE MICROANALYZER IN HIGHWAY MATERIALS ANALYSIS-FEASIBILITY STUDY

THE ELECTRON PROBE MICROANALYZER OFFERS A NEW DIMENSION IN STUDYING THE INTERACTION BETWEEN CEMENTS, AGGREGATES, REINFORCING BARS, AND DEICING SALTA. PHASE CHANGES IN THE CEMENT AND AGGREGATE INVOLVING REDISTRIBUTION OF ELEMENTS SUCH AS SODIUM OR POTASSIUM CAN BE IDENTIFIED AND STUDIED. SUSPECTED AREAS OF REACTION CAN BE SCANNED AND ELEMENTS INVOLVED IN THE REACTION CAN BE IDENTIFIED AND QUANTITATIVE- LY ANALYZED. DAMAGE TO SPECIMENS BY EXPOSURE TO THE HIGH VOLTAGE ELECTRON BEAM CAN BE MINIMIZED BY PROPER SELECTION OF OPERATING CONDITIONS. /AUTHOR/
