The objectives here are the study of moisture transport properties, and their relation to the pore structure of cementitious materials, and of the moisture effects on other transport processes (and in particular on transport properties).
No generally accepted method is available for measuring ion transport properties in non-saturated conditions. Methods of assessment (utilizing the full resources of NanoCem) at different moisture levels will be developed and applied on specimens whose micro- and nano-structure is well documented.
