The present work presents a means of evaluating the granulometry distribution of aggregates on hardened concretes via an image processing based technique. Such a technique may be employed to the reconstitution of hardened concrete composition, which is a matter of interest concerning, specially, expertise. The preliminary results of the study were obtained over synthetic images - and encourage further improvements in the employed algorithm in order to deal with actual concrete images.
