Abstract:
In this paper, the calcium chloride resistance of concrete containing a low dosage of an expansive additive was investigated in comparison to that of plain concrete. To evaluate the chloride resistance, the length of change and compressive strength, EPMA and SEM were used. In addition, comparisons with previous results on chloride resistance of concrete with ordinary expansive additive were also confirmed.
