The currently available treatment techniques for concrete structures affected by alkali-silica reaction (ASR) are limited and electrochemical lithium migration has been proposed as an alternative. Lithium compounds have shown to have beneficial effects on ASR expansion when used as admixtures to fresh concrete. During the electrochemical...

Plane and crossed polarization are the two standard light modes in polarized light microscopy that are widely used to characterize crystalline and amorphous phases in cement-based materials. However, the use of the crossed polarized light mode has been found to be restrictive for studying birefringent phases quantitatively due to the extinction...

The alkali-silica reaction (ASR) is an important problem that has yet to be completely understood. Owing to the complexity of this<br/>phenomenon, a number of studies have been conducted to characterize its kinetics, its impact on the material, and its structural consequences.<br/>This paper focuses on the deteriorating impact of ASR on concrete...

This paper shows the benefit of using transmitted light microscopy together with a Z-scanning software in fractographical analyses of glass. The strength of glass is largely dependent on processes that happen at the microscale. In this research, 52 plates were fractured in a biaxial tensile test. These were divided into five categories according...

Blast Furnace Slag (BFS) is a waste product of industrial steel production and a common additive in the cement industry in Northern European countries. However, cementitious materials made from slag-rich cement, particularly CEM III /B, are very susceptible to carbonation. Recent investigations have shown that the surface application of aqueous...

Energy dispersive X-ray spectrometry (EDS) is a powerful tool for research studies on building materials. Elemental quantification in cementitious phases contained in the concrete microstructure can be performed at an excellent spatial resolution. However, accurate compositional quantification requires a standard-based analysis, whereas...

Simulation of mechanical behaviour of heterogeneous materials is only possible if the local properties of the components are known. In recent years nano-indentation is being applied on different levels to obtain local mechanical properties. The aim of this paper is to explore various ways to obtain these properties by combining nano-indentation...

Alkali-silica reaction (ASR) is one of the major deterioration mechanisms that affect numerous concrete structures worldwide. During the reaction, hydroxyl and alkali (sodium and potassium ) ions react with certain siliceous compounds in the aggregate, forming a hygroscopic gel. The gel absorbs water from the cement paste and swells, possibly...

The level of free chloride concentration in reinforced concrete structures essentially determines the onset of steel corrosion initiation and further propagation. One of the well-known methods for monitoring free chloride concentration is using silver/silver chloride electrodes (Ag/AgCl). These electrodes are sensitive mainly to chloride ions...

The stability of chloride ion selective electrodes in highly alkaline solutions is an important aspect when reliability and feasibility within reinforced concrete applications are concerned. The sensitivity of these electrodes largely depends on the properties of the AgCl layer, including uniformity, porosity, orientation, thickness, etc. These...

A mathematical model for the post-damage recovery of carbonated cement is described. The model is based on a two-dimensional initial-boundary value problem for a system of partial differential equations. The study is embedded within the framework of investigating the effect of using lightweight expanded clay aggregate, which is incorporated into...

This investigation presents a comparative study on mechanical properties, electrical resistivity and microstructure of mortar under DC current, compared to mortar in rest (no current) conditions. Monitoring was performed from 24h after casting until 84 days of cement hydration. A current density level of 10 mA/m2 was chosen as a simulation...

In the current research, a mathematical model for the post-damage improvement of the carbonated blast furnace slag cement (BFSC) exposed to accelerated carbonation is constructed. The study is embedded within the framework of investigating the effect of using lightweight expanded clay aggregate, which is incorporated into the impregnation of the...

Before the general acceptance of Portland cement as the main binder for concrete in the late 19th century, other, locally available binders were occasionally used. In the case of the Netherlands, which did not produce Portland cement, traditional lime-based binders were not uncommon. With a strong tradition of trass production, trass-lime...

Corrosion in reinforced concrete structures is not only induced by the penetration of aggressive substances (e.g. chlorides and/or CO2) but also influenced by stray currents. Further, the degradation mechanisms in reinforced cement-based systems due to the combined effect of stray current and chloride penetration have been a serious problem in...

In congested areas around the world, traffic has significantly grown beyond expectation both in terms of volume and weight. Any hinder to the traffic causes severe delays resulting not only in economic loss but also in extra pollution of the environment. Therefore, maintenance works are desired to be reduced as much as possible. Application of...

This paper outlines a project (namely PAT-ASR) which entails the development of a multi scale material performance assessment model on simulation of alkali silica reaction deployment and its effects on concrete durability. Performance models require a multi scale approach from micro (namely reaction chemistry) to macro level studies (namely...
