Abstract

Real structures are hardened in conditions different from the optimum laboratory conditions, where materials are usually tested. The different temperature, and especially the different relative humidity present in the environment, may cause a different microstructure and, as a consequence, different service properties. In this work mortars made with two different cement types are tested in laboratory conditions and at a lower relative humidity. These new environmental conditions cause a slower microstructural development and different durability and mechanical properties at early hardening ages.
