AbstractPorous bodies formed by autoclaving portland cement-silica mixtures and by normally curing portland cement were characterized by measuring Young's modulus, microhardness and porosity. These bodies were impregnated almost completely with molten sulphur. The bodies were characterized again. It was found that the mechanical properties of the composites could be described by a form of Reuss' mixing law. Equations relating the improvement of the mechanical properties of the composite to the properties of the porous body were derived for both Young's modulus and microhardness.
