Title: Physical Salt Attack from Sodium Sulfate
Author(s): R. Doug Hooton
Publication: Web Session
Appears on pages(s):
Keywords: physical salt attack, sodium sulfate
Abstract:The focus of these presentations is on concrete deterioration due to the crystallization of salts (for example, sodium sulfate and sodium carbonate) in pores near drying faces/evaporative zones. The scope involves theoretical, experimental, and modeling aspects and field case studies from geographic locations, such as hot, arid environments, where this damage mechanism is a significant concern. This session should be of particular interest to concrete practitioners and researchers.
