The application of Katz-Thompson model in concrete materials.

What is it about?

Pore structure characters were analysed when using Katz-Thompson model in concrete to predict the permeabilty of concrete.

Why is it important?

Permeability of concrete materials is important as it is a parameter indicating durability. Katz-Thompson model can be used to predict permeabiltiy of cement and mortar materials through the knowledge of pore structure character. It have shown here for the first time that the permeabiltiy of concrete material can also be predicted using Katz-Thompson model.

I hope this article make a new view for people on the model predicting of concrete materials. And hope that there will be more experiment results about this point weather it is consistant or contradict.
