    Abstract

    This paper highlights the application of electrical property measurements as a characterization and investigative technique in the study of cementitious systems at the micro- and macroscale. Both fixed-frequency and spectral measurements are exploited to study cement pastes, mortars and concretes and results are presented from research programs relating to the early hydration of cement-based systems, characterization of fly ash, and concrete durability. The work comprises both laboratory-based investigations and field-monitoring studies. The methodology could complement other techniques that are used in the study of cement-based materials. © 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
