Abstract

SCOPE AND FIELD OF APPLICATION

The method can be applied to determine the size distribution of aggregates in different materials such as hardened mortars and concrete. The maximum aggregate size which can be measured depends on the size of the measured image.

The measurements can be performed using thin sections or other specimens where the aggregates can be distinguished from the background.
