AbstractThe validity of the equation E = E[01] exp(-bP) is tested. This relates Young's modulus of a porous body to its porosity; E[01] represents the modulus of the zero porosity material and can be determined by extrapolation. Impregnation of the porous body with sulphur, and use of the Reuss equation E[c] = 1/(V[1]/E[01] + V[2]/E[02]) provides an alternate method for determining E[01]. Both methods are applied for seven different portland cement systems. The results differ from each other by 5 to 23 per cent.
