Water is often added to concrete placing for easy workability and finishability in construction site. The additional mixing water can help easy mixing and workability but causes increased porosity, which yields degradation of durability and structural performances. In this paper, cement mortar samples with 0. Several durability tests including strength, chloride diffusion, air permeability, saturation, and moisture diffusion are performed, and they are analyzed with changed porosity. The changing ratios and patterns of durability performance are evaluated considering pore size distribution, total porosity, and additional water content.
Metrics details. Assessment of concrete cover quality is necessary for proper maintenance of concrete structures. Concrete durability is evaluated primarily based on chloride penetrability, neutralization and other external factors. The present study attempts to analyze concrete quality and its mass transfer resistance performance by measuring the air permeability and its relation with concrete durability indicators like chloride diffusion and neutralization. The applicability of air permeability as a durability indicator is validated using concrete with different materials, parameters and curing conditions. The tests are conducted on laboratory prepared concrete as well as for concrete exposed to actual marine conditions. From the experimental results, it is found that air permeability coefficient, neutralization coefficient and chloride ion diffusion coefficient have high correlation.
Permeability of Concrete and Factors Influencing It
The change of the gas permeability of concrete with age and the effect of defined moisture conditions were investigated. The air permeability of the covercrete was monitored with the Torrent method. Under controlled environmental conditions the Torrent method is sensitive to the concrete quality. However, when young concrete or moist concrete is tested adverse effects lead to unexpected results. The results of the non-destructive Torrent method are compared with data obtained with other methods and indicate significant influences of moisture under certain conditions.
The ability of concrete to withstand the conditions for which it is designed without deterioration for a long period of years is known as durability. Durability of concrete may be defined as the ability of concrete to resist weathering action, chemical attack, and abrasion while maintaining its desired engineering properties. Durability is defined as the capability of concrete to resist weathering action, chemical attack and abrasion while maintaining its desired engineering properties. It normally refers to the duration or life span of trouble-free performance. Different concretes require different degrees of durability depending on the exposure environment and properties desired. For example, concrete exposed to tidal seawater will have different requirements than indoor concrete.
Effect of moisture and concrete composition on the torrent permeability measurement
Durability is the ability to last a long time without significant deterioration. A durable material helps the environment by conserving resources and reducing wastes and the environmental impacts of repair and replacement. The production of replacement building materials depletes natural resources and can produce air and water pollution. Concrete resists weathering action, chemical attack, and abrasion while maintaining its desired engineering properties. Different concretes require different degrees of durability depending on the exposure environment and the properties desired.
