INHOMOGENEITY IN CONCRETE AND ITS EFFECT ON DEGRADATION: A REVIEW OF TECHNOLOGY . PROTECTION OF CONCRETE. PROCEEDINGS OF THE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE HELD AT THE UNIVERSITY OF DUNDEE, SEPTEMBER 11-13, 1990

The role of inhomogeneities in mechanical, physical and chemical degradation processes of concrete is examined. In particular, the existence of various 'skin' layers within the concrete is identified. Factors such as sedimentation, microcracking, porosity, transition layers, thickness of cement cover and appearance are all examined with regard to inhomogeneities. The effects of atmospheric degradation processes are also reviewed with regard to the outer cement skin layer of the concrete. A coordinated interdisciplinary approach to further research is proposed. (Author/TRRL)
