Title: The Action Of Sulphate Solutions On Steam-Cured Composite Cement Mortars
Author(s): T. Thorvaldson and D. Wolochow
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 241-268
Abstract:Comparison is made between the behavior of un-treated and steam-cured specimens of concrete in sulfate solutions. Includes a report on tests of steam-cured composite cement mortars and experimental results. Steam curing causes the ffrst reaction in each case to proceed almost to completion with the formation of crystalline C3A* 6HzO, and partial or complete removal of free lime by combination with silica sand and depending on the quantity of C3S present.
