ASPECTS OF TESTING METHODS FOR ACID ATTACK ON CONCRETE--FURTHER EXPERIMENTS

This paper discusses a procedure for testing the resistance of concrete and concrete products against acid attacks that has been subjected to control experiments which have provided information on the technique involved and on the influence of various parameters. The discussion consists of a presentation of and a summary of the results obtained, which is presented in the following segments: influence of various paremeters, is, different acids, different temperatures, different water-cement ratios, tricalcium silicate paste, and flowing medium; questions connected with the experiments such as reproducibility, fluid erosin in test vessel, and some practical details--specimens, acid supply, pH control, agitation, and layer dissolution; measurement results and discussion of the calcium dissolution; procedure for, results of, discussion of, and consequence for design of test method of layer dissolution experiments; long term experiments; and folds of application for the test method.
