Research units


The overall performance and efficiency of fibre reinforced cement composites depend on the adhesive bond strength/properties between fibre and cement-matrix, which is mainly influenced by the characteristics of inter-facial transition zone, (ITZ).
Within the present research the morphology of ITZ was studied by using the X-ray nano-Computer Tomography provided by the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility. This scanning approach enables to study more accurately the three-dimensional nature and properties of adhesion between the cement-matrix and fibre.
