• Influence of curing temperature on belite cement hydration: a comparative study with Portland cement 

      Shirani, Shiva; Cuesta-García, Ana María; Morales-Cantero, Alejandro; Gómez de la Torre, María Ángeles; P. Olbinado, Margie; [et al.] (Elsevier, 2021-05-24)
      Belite cements (BCs) could be a more sustainable binder than Portland cements (PCs) but adequate knowledge of the hydration features has still to be built. In particular, the mild curing hydration temperature effects have ...
    • Ptychographic X-ray computed tomography analysis of cement pastes 

      García-Aranda, Miguel Ángel; Cuesta-Garcia, Ana Maria; Gomez-de-la-Torre, Maria de los Angeles; Trtik, Pavel; Diaz, Ana (2019-10-04)
      Ptychographic X-ray computed tomography provides 3D electron mass density and attenuationcoefficient distributions of unaltered cement pastes with an isotropic resolution below 100 nm. Thisimaging technique allows ...
    • Synchrotron Radiation Pair Distribution Function Analysis of Gels in Cements 

      Cuesta-Garcia, Ana Maria; Zea-Garcia, Jesus D.; Londono-Zuluaga, Diana; Gomez-de-la-Torre, Maria de los Angeles; Santacruz-Cruz, Maria Isabel; [et al.] (MDPI, 2017)
      The analysis of atomic ordering in a nanocrystalline phase with small particle sizes, below 5 nm, is intrinsically complicated because of the lack of long-range order. Furthermore, the presence of additional crystalline ...
