Research on interaction of laser light and non-metals; Evaluation of laser irradiation behavior to concrete

Yamada, Tomonori; Muramatsu, Toshiharu

In this study the response of hardened cement pastes, which is a major component of concrete, to laser irradiation was investigated under various experimental conditions aiming at the future application to "laser-processing" of concrete. (1) Evaluation of water-cement ratio for laser irradiation. It was found that hardened cement paste subjected to laser irradiation explodes very easily to be hollowed in all the experimental conditions; this response is applicable to "laser-drilling" of a hardened cement paste. (2) Evaluation of the kind of mortar for laser irradiation. Totally 75 laser irradiation tests for fixed mortar blocks were performed with combinations of following experimental conditions: fine aggregate in the mortar blocks was either of quartz, limestone, or Nachiguro-ishi. Although it was found that all kinds of the mortar fuse under laser irradiation after all, difference in the response to laser irradiation among the mortars was also found.
