Effect of SCMs on Alkali-Silica-Reaction Mitigation 1- Fly Ash the three characteristics of fly ash that determine its efficiency in preventing ASR are fineness, mineralogy, and chemistry. In general, the finer the fly ash, the
Concrete Spalling Currently, there are two mechanisms concerning the occurrence of spalling: 1- the pore pressure build up causes spalling in the cement matrix and 2- thermal and mechanical stresses. In 1997, Anderberg gave an account
Corrosion of Embedded Metals in Concrete Corrosion of reinforcing steel and other embedded metals is the leading cause of deterioration in concrete. When steel corrodes, the resulting rust occupies a greater volume than the steel.
Origin and Classification of Aggregates Most of the properties of an aggregate derive from its parental rock chemical and mineral composition which affects strength, stiffness, density, pore structure and permeability. Rocks experience geothermal and weathering
Pervious Concrete Pervious concrete is a type of concrete with a system of interconnected pores allowing water to rapidly drain through. Pervious concrete itself is made up of coarse aggregate that is coated by a
Flyash Flyash is the by-product of the combustion of pulverized coal and is collected by mechanical and electrostatic separators from the fuel gases of power plants where coal is used as a fuel and the
Admixtures A material other than water, aggregates, or cement that is used as an ingredient of concrete or mortar to control setting and early hardening, workability, or to provide additional cementing properties. Why is admixture
Information for Ordering Concrete When ordering pre-mixed concrete, you will need to tell the supplier: Name and address for delivery The use of the concrete (i.e. driveway, housing slab, commercial) The amount you need in cubic
