Petrographic analysis can be applied to the concrete industry in numerous ways and thus helps to unlock the microscopic secrets of concrete’s big-picture ideas. By utilizing polarizing light microscopy, GeoStructures petrographers characterize concrete samples based on the following characteristics:
- Composition of aggregates (ASTM C259)
- Quality of cement paste (ASTM C856)
- Water/cement ratio
- Air void percentages (ASTM C457)
- Depth of carbonation
- Evidence of alkali-silica reactions (ASTM C856)
Our petrographers tailor their approach to fit client needs, thus providing insight into potential failure mechanisms, corrosion, weathering/leaching, fire damage, sulfate attack, freeze/thaw durability, and more!
