Time for C-lab

And now it is time for me to start at C-lab. For the next couple of weeks I will be doing different concrete experiments together with Ingemar and Oskar. I am so excited to find out more about the properties of concrete, I guess the chemist in me will show ;) Here you will get a glimpse of one of the experiments
I start out with mixing and casting the concrete in to small moulds, which I let cure. After removal of the moulds I weigh the samples and then let them rest on wet cloths. After a certain amount of time I remove the samples, wipe of the surface water and weigh the sample again. Then I continue to weigh the samples regularly the same way for a couple of days. Finally I will get a measure of how much water that has been absorbed in to the capillary pores as a function of time.
I am excited to see the results!
