Abstract:
Sulfate attack on concrete has long been studied and measures taken to combat sulfate attack. Therefore, damage due to sulfate attack is not prevalent today. Illustrations are given to show damage which results when preventive measures are not taken. Tests results are reviewed which led to preventive measures being taken, such as low CSA cements, use of pozzolans, and low water to cement ratio concrete.
