Long term durability of concrete structures, some waste disposals especially, is a problem which must be faced both from the point of view of cracking and physical degradations. In this contribution, we investigate the case of leaching of concrete structures as an example. There are two sources of material damage: one which is due to mechanical actions, and a second one which is due to an increase of material porosity as several of its components are being dissolved. Experimental data aimed at… 

The effect of electrical stray current on material properties of mortar specimens

Well known is that stray electrical current i.e. current with a spatial distribution in any conductive environment, can affect civil structures, e.g. initiate or enhance steel corrosion or affect

Effects of calcium leaching on the physical and mechanical properties of aerial lime-cement mortars

Purpose This paper aims to assess the effects of chemically accelerated leaching on the physical and mechanical properties of aerial lime–cement mortars (LCMs). Design/methodology/approach Two

Durability of Mortar Containing Coal Bottom Ash as a Partial Cementitious Resource

This research work focuses on the study of the durability of composite cements based on coal bottom ash powder produced by SONICHAR in Niger. After a physicochemical and environmental

Effect of mineral additives (natural pozzolana and sand of dunes) by substitution of cement on the performance and durability of mortars

The objective of our work consists of the study of the substitution effects of clinker by mineral additions such as: natural pozzolana (PZ) and the sand of dunes (SD) finely crushed on the mechanical

Caractérisation à l'échelle locale des propriétés mécaniques de l'interphase pâte de ciment-granulat : application à la lixiviation

Cette etude porte sur la caracterisation des proprietes mecaniques de l’interphase pâte de ciment-granulat a l’etat sain et a l’etat degrade par un mecanisme chimique de lixiviation. Dans le premier

Interface damage analysis of CA mortar layer of the CRTS II ballastless slab track under temperature gradient loads

Damage of interface between the track slab and the cement asphalt (CA) mortar layer under temperature loads will deteriorate mechanical characteristics of the ballastless slab track, so this issue
