Reactive Powder Concrete (RPC), which can be classified under Ultra High Performance Concrete (UHPCs) vows to be a promising material with respect to its mechanical properties. Its performance under adverse environmental conditions is equally important, especially in marine environment, nuclear waste storage units and chemical industries. Its dense and uniform microstructure may lead to high performance characteristics. Assessing the permeability of a concrete with dense microstructure becomes…

An Experimental Investigation on Durability Properties of Reactive Powder Concrete
The durability of concrete subjected to an aggressive environment is a major issue faced by constructional engineers. Many researchers have tried to evaluate the durability characteristics of
Analysis Of Sulphate Resistance Reactive Powder Concrete With W/C Variations
Reactive powder concrete is a type of high-performance concrete with low porosity. RPC eliminates the use of coarse aggregates in the mixture to increase compactness, stability of the mixture
Formulation and study of metal fiber-reinforced reactive powder concrete
PurposeReactive powder concretes (RPCs) are new concretes characterized by a particle diameter not exceeding 600 µm and very high compressive and tensile strengths. This paper aims to the development


Assessment of Corrosion and Durability Characteristics of Copper Slag Admixed Concrete
The main aim of the environmental protection agencies and the government are to seek ways and means to minimize the problems of disposal and health hazards of by-products. Some of the industrial
Optimization of Mechanical Properties and Durability of Reactive Powder Concrete
The objective of the mixture design described herein was to achieve a concrete with very high compressive strength, toughness, and excellent durability (resistant to freezing and thawing), but with
The durability characteristics of high performance concrete: a review
Abstract Durability problems of ordinary concrete can be associated with the severity of the environment and the use of inappropriate high water/binder ratios. High-performance concrete that have a
Composition of reactive powder concretes
Abstract Development of an ultra-high strength ductile concrete designated RPC (Reactive Powder Concrete), was made possible by the application of a certain number of basic principles relating to the
Microstructural investigation of innovative UHPC
The production of ultra high performance concrete (UHPC) with target strengths greater than 200 MPa has recently been considered for specific structural applications that need this enhanced
Corrosion of steel reinforcement in concrete of different compressive strengths
Abstract Corrosion of steel bars embedded in concrete having compressive strengths of 20, 30 and 46 MPa was investigated. Reinforced concrete specimens were immersed in a 3% NaCl solution by weight
Response of Concrete to Sulfuric Acid Attack
The response of four different concrete mixes to sulfuric acid attack was evaluated in an accelerated laboratory test program. Small test specimens cut from standard concrete cylinders and a 1
Using concrete admixtures for sulphuric acid resistance
The degradation of concrete sewer pipes by sulphuric acid attack is a problem of global scope, resulting in substantial economic losses each year. In this study, five admixtures, which offer a range
