Title: Effect of Treated Effluent on Concrete Durability
Author(s): H. Saricimen, M. Shameem, M. S. Barry, and M. Ibrahim
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 767-782
Keywords: compressive strength; concrete; pore solution; setting time; silica fume; treated effluent
Abstract:Plain cement and silica fume cement paste and mortar specimens prepared using Type I cement, 8% silica fume, and potable and treated waters were tested for setting time and compressive strength. Pore solutions extracted from the mortar specimens were analyzed for alkalinity and chloride content. The results showed that the treated water tested in this study qualifies to be used in making concrete on the basis that the chemical composition of treated water and variations in the setting time and compressive strength were within the tolerable limits.
