    Abstract

    In this paper, the structure of concrete is reviewed, and the analysis of concrete components is presented from the viewpoint of diagnosing that structure. The diagnosis of a complex concrete structure entails the identification of concrete components—such as aggregate, paste, pores, etc.—and the estimation of concrete quality, existing damage, and possible causes of failures. The most effective methods for concrete diagnosis, such as microscopic image analysis, are briefly described. The importance of quantitative results of material analysis and image processing is highlighted.
