  • A nanoscale study of dissolution and growth processes in cement hydrates 

    Rheinheimer, Vanessa (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2012-11-30)
    Doctoral thesis
    Open Access
    This thesis aims at providing new knowledge on the, otherwise poorly known, molecular-scale mechanisms that operate during hydration of cement phases and dissolution of their hydrates. In order to pursue this objective, a ...
  • An X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy study of the hydration of C2S thin films 

    Rheinheimer, Vanessa; Casanova Hormaechea, Ignasi (2014-06)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Electron-beam evaporation was used to produce thin films of ß-dicalcium silicate. Chemical and mineralogical compositions were characterized by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and grazing-angle X-ray diffraction ...
  • Production and characterization of clinker thin fi lms as a new tool for nanoscale studies of hydration mechanisms 

    Rheinheimer, Vanessa; Veglio, Néstor Raúl; Casanova Hormaechea, Ignasi (Instituto de Ciencias de la Construcción Eduardo Torroja (ICCET), 2011)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Nanometer-sized films of clinker phases have been prepared using electron-beam evaporation methods with the aim to produce suitable samples for nanoscale studies of hydration mechanisms and nanomechanical properties of ...
  • Sulphate attack and the role of thaumasite in historical constructions 

    Rheinheimer, Vanessa (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2008-07)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    Gran parte de construcciones históricas importantes se encuentran en el centro de grandes ciudades, y en ocasiones próximas a la industria y por ello en contacto con áreas que presentan una atmósfera rica en sulfatos, ...
  • Thin films as a tool for nanoscale studies of cement systems and building materials 

    Rheinheimer, Vanessa; Casanova Hormaechea, Ignasi (INtech, 2017)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    Many efforts have been made over the last decades to improve and develop new technologies for cement and chemical industries that can provide materials that are more durable and cost efficient, stronger and less environmentally ...
