Effect of ultrasound on the process of mass transfer in cement mortar and concrete

  • 35 Accesses


We present new results in the investigation of the depth and rate of impregnation of cement mortar and concrete. We show the effect of ultrasound on the process of mass transfer in concrete. We establish the possibility of using ultrasound for accelerating the impregnation of concrete and also of other capillary-porous materials.
