Reinforced concrete structures are susceptible to attack by elements of the environment including chloride and sulfate ions. Past attempts at increasing service life have generally focused on limiting the ingress of these deleterious elements by producing less permeable concrete. Lower water-cementitious material ratios and the addition of fine pozzolans such as silica fume contribute to a denser cement paste matrix. Such mixtures are often classified as high-performance concretes. These… CONTINUE READING
