Oct 05, 2016  Microstructure of concrete. Concrete has a heterogeneous microstructure, which consists of three components, namely, cement paste, pore structure, and interfacial transition zone between the cement paste and aggregates. Improving these three components leads to enhance mechanical strength and durability of concrete. 3.1.
