Title: Sulfate Attack on Concrete - Recent Perspectives
Author(s): F.P. Glasser and K.L. Scrivener
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 495-506
Keywords: concrete; degradation; sulfate attack
Abstract:The degradation of concrete exposed to environments containing sulfate ions is a complex phenomenon. The increasing complexity of cementitious materials through the incorporation of supplementary cementing materials coupled with the demand for structures with longer service life, require a better understanding of the process of sulfate attack. This paper discusses the issues involved and presents the approach of the NANOCEM consortium to the research needs.
