Petrographical analysis is a microscopical analytical tool which allows definition of the exact nature of the components of different concrete mixes, as well as definition of internal structures and alteration processes. In order to improve the precision and the swiftness of the petrographical analysis, an automated image analysis system has been developed. In the next stage of this study, which consisted in the testing of new concrete mixes containing fluidized bed ashes, petrography has been used, not only to identify the nature of the mix components, but also to assess the behaviour of these new concrete mixes when exposed to aggressive conditions (saumures).
