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.
