Title: Tidal Exposure Effects on Concrete Made with Shrinkage-Compensating Cement
Author(s): G. B. Moore
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 115-122
Keywords: concrete durability; expansive cements; marine atmospheres; portland cement type II; seawater; shrinkage-compensating cements; sulfate attack; sulfate resistance.
Abstract:Companion specimens of concrete made with Type I and Type K shrinkage-compensating cement were placed in andwhere they were exposed to the atmosphere approximately 50 percent of the time, and covered by seawater the rest of the time. Pulse velocity measurements made at intervals up to 9 years show no indication of deterioration. Specimens continuously exposed to the atmos- phere in the same location have somewhat lower pulse velocities, but show no deterioration..
