Title: Aspects of The Durability of Conventional Concrete and Shotcrete for Engineering Applications
Appears on pages(s):
Abstract:This paper considers the various environments to which the normal range of concrete engineering structures are exposed. The environments considered are the atmosphere, ground-water, the ground and sea-water.The potential effects of these environments on the durability of these structures are then addressed.The potential deleterious effects on the durability of concrete that may occur due to the ingredients used to make the concrete are also considered. The special characteristics of shotcrete and the method of its placement are then reviewed with respect to durability. An approach to combating the likelihood of durability being adversely affected is then outlined . The paper concludes with a summary of the steps recommended to be taken when the durability of conventional concrete and shotcrete are considered to be particularly important.
