• A comparative study of experimental configurations in synchrotron pair distribution function 

      Zea-Garcia, Jesus D.; Gomez-de-la-Torre, Maria de los Angeles; García-Aranda, Miguel Ángel; Cuesta-Garcia, Ana Maria (MDPI - Publisher of Open Access Journals, 2019-04-25)
      The identification and quantification of amorphous components and nanocrystalline phases with very small crystal sizes, smaller than ~3 nm, within samples containing crystalline phases is very challenging. However, this ...
    • Difracción de rayos-x (DRX) y cementos: desde la investigación hasta el control de calidad 

      Garcia-Mate, Marta; Gomez-de-la-Torre, Maria de los Angeles; García-Aranda, Miguel Ángel (2019-06-20)
      Los materiales de construcción son componentes complejos de gran interés comercial. Por ello, el conocimiento cuantitativo de su mineralogía a través de la difracción de rayos X (DRX) es de crucial importancia para optimizar ...
    • 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 ...
    • X-ray Total Scattering Study of Phases Formed from Cement Phases Carbonation 

      Cuesta-Garcia, Ana Maria; Gomez-de-la-Torre, Maria de los Angeles; García-Aranda, Miguel Ángel (MDPI, 2021)
      Carbonation in cement binders has to be thoroughly understood because it affects phase assemblage, binder microstructure and durability performance of concretes. This is still not the case as the reaction products can ...
