This user's manual provides documentation and computer
program listings for the three-dimensional cement
hydration and microstructure development model developed
at the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
The following topics are covered in this documentation:
acquisition and processing of two-dimensional scanning
electron microscope and x-ray images; creation of a
starting three-dimensional microstructure based on a
measured particle size distribution for the cement
powder and information extracted from the
two-dimensional image; and execution of the cement
hydration and microstructure development program.
Complete program listings and example data files are
provided in the appendices of this documentation and the
software is also available for downloading via Anonymous
FTP (File Transfer Protocol).
