Abstract:
The state-of-the-art relating to the resistance of silica-fume concrete to de-incing salt scaling is reviewed. The performance of silica-fume concrete to de-icing salt scaling is compared with that of the ocntrol portland-cement concrete. The efects of the silica-fume content, air content, air-void spacing factor, water-to-cementitious materials ratio, placement considerations, and curing conditions are discussed.
