Experimental Investigation of Neutralisation of Concrete

Jun 25,  · To study the durability of concrete with fly ash as fine aggregate under alternate freeze-thaw and carbonation, freeze-thaw and carbonation cyclic tests are conducted to explore variation characteristics such as relative dynamic modulus of elasticity and neutralisation depth. The influence coefficient ( λ C ) of carbonation on concrete freeze-thaw damage and the influence coefficient (&#

Performance Enhancer for Portland Limestone Cement (PLC

An identical concrete mix (cement = 300kg/m 3, w/c = 0.60) was used to produce cubes which were subjected to the freeze-thaw test according to CEN/TS 12390-9. The concrete must have less than 10% loss of weight after 100 cycles to fulfill the requirement of the standard.

Performance-based design and carbonation of concrete with

The durability of concrete is assessed through a performance-based approach. First, a performance-based method was applied to design a concrete mixture with more than 50% substitution of cement by fly ash. To cope with the high viscosity of the so-obtained mixture, an air-entraining agent was used. Due to its low cement content, the so-obtained

Transition to Specifying Concrete Durability by Performance

The transition from the current approach to specifying concrete durability to a performance-based approach should be achieved in a series of steps. Test methods and modelling are simplifications of reality and criteria based on this approach should not be given a higher status than criteria based on experience in the local environment.

Most Common Sealer Problems - Concrete Sealer Series

When salt is applied to a sealed decorative concrete surface covered by snow and ice, it causes melting and turns the frozen water into a liquid that is now able to migrate into the concrete. This salt-rich water (brine) goes through many freeze-thaw cycles as environmental conditions change (i.e., more snow falls, the sun comes out, more salt
