Title: Influence of Drying on the Chloride Ion Permeability of HPC
Author(s): Michel Pigeon, Francoise Garnier, Richard Pleau and Pierre-Claude Aitcin
Publication: Concrete International
Appears on pages(s): 65-69
Abstract:Penetration of chlorides is one of the most important causes of the deterioration of concrete structures. Chlorides induce corrosion of the reinforcement, and thus eventually delamination, cracking, and spalling of the concrete cover. It is also well established that surface scaling of concrete due to frost generally only occurs if it is exposed to deicer salts.
