MEASUREMENT AND EVALUATION OF ABRASION RESISTANCE OF CONCRETE SURFACES . DURABILITY OF BUILDING MATERIALS AND COMPONENTS. PROCEEDINGS OF THE FIFTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE HELD IN BRIGHTON, NOVEMBER 7-9, 1990

In an experimental and theoretical investigation an attempt is made to develop a better understanding into the basic mechanisms resulting in the abrasion of concrete surfaces. Furthermore, experimental procedures are being developed which may result in better correlation between test results and actual performance. An analysis of the stress state around a sphere acting on a concrete surface either through impact at various angles or through friction shows that the critical stress state for concrete is tension-compression and occurs directly on the concrete surface. In the experimental investigation 4 test procedures are employed to simulate different local fracture mechanisms. The experiments give some insight into differences in the behaviour of paste, aggregate and interface. (Author/TRRL)
