The percolation of pore space in the cement paste/aggregate interfacial zone of concrete

The cement paste in the interfacial transition zone (ITZ) around aggregate particles has a significantly higher porosity than bulk cement paste. This elevated porosity will effect the transport properties of concrete. The penetration of Wood's metal into concrete samples indicates that the porosity in the interfacial zone is permeated preferentially to the bulk paste. This technique also indicates the width of the interfacial zone in which the porosity is interconnected.
