The application of optical methods for the assessment of the aesthetic compatibility of architectural concrete

Architectural concrete is usually defined as concrete for with the requirements regarding aesthetics of its surface are formulated. The currently applied requirements regarding aesthetics compatibility are mostly based on subjective methods of concrete surface assessment. While it is relatively easy to apply quantitative criteria for components of surface analysis such as porosity, the quantitative assessment of colour compatibility could be problematic. In this paper, an optical method for the assessment of concrete surface colour is presented. The main goal of the investigation was to assess the effect of modifications of the aggregate used for preparation of architectural concrete mix on the surface colour. Optical test methods using a self-made DARK-BOX device were used. The obtained results confirmed the usefulness of the method used to assess the colour compatibility of architectural concrete surfaces.
