Pozzolanic reaction simply consists of an acid–base reaction between calcium hydroxide (Ca(OH) 2 ), and silicic acid (H 4 SiO 4 , or Si(OH) 4 ). The reactivity of pozzolans, in the case of lime-based mortars, is attributed to their content in amorphous silica

Introduction The decorative cement mortars and concretes are an artificial imitation of the natural stones. The main advantage of these artificial stones is their better workability, but the durability and stability are their

Abstract  

Roman ancient mortars have been widely studied, in connection with both diagnosis and application required for restoring. Thermoanalytical experiments performed on mortars from Pompeii and Herculaneum provided a very good understanding of the technology employed. The mortars from Pompeii were obtained by the proper mixing of lime and marble grains while mortars of Herculaneum by lime and silicates compounds. The position of the endothermic peak of calcite decomposition showed important variations in the different samples studied, which was assigned to the different crystallinity and particle sizes. Experiments under CO2 flow confirmed the presence of magnesium calcium carbonates.

Abstract  

The use of thermal analysis in studying ancient mortars in English cathedrals is explained. Thermal analysis can be used to investigate both mortar and stone in dated structures. Analysis of ancient mortars show that though recarbonated, they remain soft, yielding to structural deformations. The use of hard (cement mortar) in modern renovation can result in micro-cracking in the stone and subsequent chemical attack from the atmosphere. Contrary to the literature, data developed in the present study suggests that most medieval mortars have reached a near total state of recarbonation.

Abstract  

The ancient mortars of the monastery of San Filippo di Fragalà in Frazzanò, the first Basilian-Norman center in Sicily, have been studied and classified by means of ICP, HPLC, TG-DTA, XRD and thin sections analysis. A new very simple method to evaluate the hydraulic properties of the mortars, based on the combination of analytical and thermogravimetric data, is also reported. The HPLC investigations indicate that the monastery is only partially involved in decay phenomena due to the action of soluble salts.
