The degree of a solvent attack is generally expressed in terms of concentration (mg/1 and pH value) of attacking acid. An evaluation of the literature and our own experiments have shown that the conditions of transport of the attacking and the dissolved substances often have a much greater influence on the loss of mass than the concentration of the attacking substances.

5 The concrete must be well compacted around the bars. 6 Concrete should be at least C20 or 1:2:4 nominal mix and have a maximum aggregate size of 20mm. Concrete floors are sometimes reinforced with welded steel mesh or chicken wire, placed 25mm from the upper surface of the concrete, to limit the size of any cracking.
ADVERTISEMENTS: White dealing with the durability aspect of concrete, the chloride effect on concrete is the most important factor as it causes the corrosion of reinforcement of concrete. The statistical studies have shown that more than 40% structures have failed due to the corrosion of reinforcement steel. Due to high alkaline nature of calcium hydroxide […]
