Description

Flow and transport phenomena in porous media play a significant role in various fields of science and technology, comprising a spectrum from medical sciences over material sciences to soil and rock sciences. Also in building materials, the transfer of moisture and heat play a crucial role when assessing their properties and performances. Hence, three-dimensional analyses of the pore structure of building materials are becoming progressively more important in recent years, to obtain more accurate interpretations and simulations of their characteristics. Computed tomography has proven to be an excellent and versatile tool to perform these analyses non-destructively. The reconstruction of the pore structure is of high importance for establishing accurate models, as it plays a crucial role in determining important characteristics of building materials. These models allow to better understand the results of corresponding laboratory tests and in the near future might replace these time consuming experiments. In this paper the added value of Computed Tomography characterization will be demonstrated based on two case studies. The first will focus on the accurate simulation of moisture transfer while in the second one CT datasets are used to overcome a multiscale problem regarding the simulation of the effective thermal conductivity.

The application of Computed Tomography for characterising the pore structure of building materials
