Abstract:
ACI uses cement content alone as the basis for allowable chloride limits for new construction. With the heightened use of SCMs and performance specifications for cement, there is need to evaluate using total cementitious materials content as the basis for allowable chloride limits in new construction and for chloride thresholds. These allowable and critical chloride values, along with other important factors, can significantly impact the service life of reinforced concrete structures. The purpose of these sessions is to inform the audience of recent research in these areas so that recommendations on the allowable and critical chloride values can be evaluated and validated. This session will be useful for researchers, engineers, consultants, and those developing standards and specifications.
