POROSITY

THE PORE CHARACTERISTICS OF CONCRETE AGGREGATES ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT PROPERTIES OF AGGREGATE MATERIALS. HARDLY ANY PROPERTY OF AGGREGATES, PHYSICOCHEMICAL OR MECHANICAL, IS NOT SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECTED BY THE PORE CHARACTERISTICS. THERE ARE MANY EXPERIMENTAL METHODS FOR MEASURING THESE CHARACTERISTICS OR PROPERTIES RELATED THERETO. FREQUENTLY THE VALUE OBTAINED IS STRONGLY DEPENDENT ON THE METHOD, AND CONSIDERABLE SPECIFICITY IS NEEDED TO AVOID AMBIGUITY. THESE METHODS AND THEIR LIMITATIONS ARE OUTLINED, ESPECIALLY AS APPLIED TO AGGREGATES, AND THE WAYS IN WHICH THE PORE CHARACTERISTICS AFFECT THE IMPORTANT PROPERTIES OF AGGREGATES AND OF THE CONCRETE MADE THERE-WITH ARE DESCRIBED.
