Abstract text:
In the present paper is analysed concrete behavior from strength structure elements, subjected to combined sulphatic and magnesian aggressive actions. In order to clearly relieve cement influence regarding corrosion behavior and to be as close as possible of concrete structural characteristics, tests are realized on standard mortars, which from compositional point of view are mocro-concretes. These were used different W/C ratios in order to obtain different structural characteristics, knowing that in the first period after casting, when concrete porosity is sensibly higher, corrosion process is more emphatic, with subsequent negative effects. It was taken into account the fact that sulphatic corrosion effect appears after a long duration of aggressive agent action, in the present paper proposing a three year duration for aggressive attack. In the same time it was considered the fact that usual cement for structural elements is composite cement type CEM II/A-S 32,5, studying combined sulphatic and magnesian corrosion evolution on a large type of micro-concrete compositions with different compactness and aggressive agent concentrations.
Key Words:
micro-concrete; aggressive environment; cement; corrosion.
