Title: Behaviour of High Erosion-Resistant Silica Fume-Mortars for Repair of Hydraulic structures
Author(s): M. Berra, G. Ferrara, and S. Tavano
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 827-848
Keywords: erosion; freeze-thaw durability; hydraulic structures; mortars (material); plasticizers; repairs; silica fume; fibers; Materials Research
Abstract:The effectiveness of silica fume to improve the erosion resistance of cement mortars used to repair hydraulic structures was investigated. The mortars were fiber-reinforced and contained a superplasticizer. Other factors investigated were erosion resistance, mechanical properties, shrinkage, atmospheric, under vacuum absorption, freeze-thaw resistance, and adhesion of mortars to concrete substrates.
